The Chairman of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change, Mulbah K. Morlu is firing back, branding opposition politicians criticizing the Weah administration as prophets of doom.He says recent criticism against the President’s Annual Message, which he describes as successful, is one classic example that the opposition’s response to the message was prepared far ahead before President Weah delivered it.
In an official response from the governing CDC on Wednesday, February 6, Chairman Morlu further describes members of the opposition as provocateurs, who are praying for the political demise of the CDC-led government.
“If you listened to their analysis, you will get to know that they are prophets of doom. Our critics get more angry when President Weah speaks of road connections, infrastructure development, free tuition for University undergraduate students, WEAC fees, 14 Militant Hospital, etc,” he blares.He says members of the opposition are irritated because they expect Liberia to be a rogue State under President Weah, but it is on the contrary.
Morlu counters that development is on the increase, the fight against corruption is being recognized by reputable institutions, one step ahead of former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s government.
The CDC Chair maintains no matter the criticisms, the Weah government will not go after critics, saying “When they talked, we will talk. No more fighting. We will not revert to their days when Liberians fought. We will maintain the peace to ensure the George Weah’s 12-year democratic presidency.” Editing by Jonathan Browne
