The Standard Bearer of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction Senator Prince Yormie Johnson tells his critics here to go to hell and inform the devil he sends them for criticizing his recent endorsement of the candidacy of Coalition for Democratic Change Standard Bearer George Weah against Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai of the governing Unity Party in the November 7th run-off election.

“Those that are calling negative names because I support Senator Weah for the presidency let them go to hell and tell the devil I sent them. I’m a minister of the gospel and I was not only born to be President for Liberia at this time. For those that believe in me, including the chiefs, traditional leaders, elders, youth and women groups, I think this is the time for Nimba County to produce a president and that person is Senator Weah,” Johnson maintains.

But Human Rights lawyer Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe, a native of Nimba County, says the votes of Nimba County are non-transferable, noting that Senator Johnson did not consult with the people of the county before declaring support for Senator Weah in Monrovia last Thursday. “Weah cannot get the votes expected from the Nimba people”, he says.

He argues that Sen. Weah is unfit for the presidency and Liberia does not want a leader, who will be tutored on the job.

Speaking in the streets of Ganta City, Nimba County where he had paraded with the soccer legend (Weah) as the best choice for the nation’s presidency, he says his decision to select the Coalition Standard Bearer is because Weah provides the only option for the country’s interest.

Senator Johnson continues that he supports George Weah for many reasons, noting that Weah was born in Nimba County, and later brought to Clara Town, Monrovia for schooling.

According to him, the platform of the CDC represents the direct needs of Liberia that had returned from 14 years of bloody civil war and is in dire need of infrastructural progress, development of young people’s mind, improved health care and social services, among others.

Upon the arrival of Weah and Johnson in the commercial city of Ganta on Friday, 27 October the traffic from Guinea Road, and the road leading to the southeast were at a standstill, as the entire city was captured with CDC’s campaign songs at various entrainment spots, bars, and restaurants.

Thousands of jubilating supporters paraded with the two political figures, chanting, “Election no cheating”, “This is our time”, while others sang, “Weah, we’re taking you to the mansion”, “PYJ our hero has come.”
