‘Show Weah the exit door’

–Opposition urges Liberians

By Lewis S. Teh

Opposition Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) ranking member George Wisner has urged potential Liberian voters to show President George Manneh Weah and his regime the exit door.

Wisner wants the decision made during the October 2023 presidential and legislative elections because the incumbent has allegedly worsened the living conditions of the people, and inflicted suffering upon them.

“What has happened over the last five years through gross incompetence, corruption, and miss management? For this reason, President Weah and his government must be shown the exit door and allow the CPP to handle the country,” Wisner said on OK FM Monday, 30 January 2023.

Wisner is a former Executive Director of the National Investment Commission (NIC). He served in the role during former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s regime.

Ahead of President Weah’s sixth State of the Nation Address Monday, Mr. Wisner claimed that the government has not generated one-kilo watts of electricity since its ascendancy over the past five years.

Instead, he claimed that the government inherited an installed capacity of 103 megawatts of electricity.

Winser continued that all the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) government needed to have done was to focus on transmission and distribution.

Wisner, a strong critic of President Weah, added that what has happened over the last five years through alleged incompetence, corruption, and gross miss management has led two of the four turbines inherited by the regime to become non-functional.

He alleged that the CDC government has failed to inform Liberians of the reason behind the electricity problem the country is facing.

At the same time, Wisner rubbish supporters of President Weah’s claims that the CDC government has improved the relationship with the country’s traditional ally, the United States of America.

“We all know what happened on the eve of the invitation, the Government of Liberia had requested a meeting with the US Vice President. That request was rejected,” Wisner said.

He claimed that due to the leakage of the communication, Ambassador George Pattern was dismissed while he was still on the post as Liberia’s Ambassador to the United States.

He argued that since then, the government hasn’t been able to repair the damage that was done.

Wisner noted that it was unconventional for an ambassador to be recalled and replaced at about the same time, saying it suggests that either the ambassador was engaged in treasonable act, or espionage.

“You want to talk about corruption, what happened to the $25 million mop-up exercise?” Wisner continued.
