CommentaryLiberia newsORIGINAL LETTER TO GODPostbox

Letter to God: Lord, you sure this pastor actually heard from the Old Man up there?

Dear Father:

You know, the other day the upper end of our Traditional Council was thrown into laughter -though funny, it was also serious.  

The man of God said he had a dream, and the Old Man up there told him that one former deputy village paramount chief will never chop paramount chief in our village because that former deputy paramount chief is too mean to himself.

As this so-called man of God made his dream so real that by the time, he got thru explaining it, the Paramount Chief from the Upper end of our Traditional Council his gave instruction that they should buy him one Jeep straight.

Tell me something my son!

Yes, ooh Father. See how they can embarrass themselves and they say God say. If he had nothing to say, he just suppose to do the people opening prayer and sit down. But you know na-this year that voting year, he mon say something to get him owner bosses ears.

But Father ehn that some of the thing there. The people nag eh same, they just say all kina thing just to geh favor.
