The Political leader of the main opposition Congress for Democratic Change or CDC, George Weah, has apologized to all Liberians who he may have offended by his words.
“Those who all I may have offended by my words or my action I am sure not my deeds, again I say, I am sorry; please forgive me, and let us move forward for the interest of the nation”, Weah pleaded here for forgiveness on Thursday, 13 November. He also extended an apology to aggrieved partisans of the CDC that got offended by decisions taken within the party by party officials.
“I want to say again to those, who felt offended by the decision taken in the Congress for Democratic Change; I want to say that we are leaders that need to take decision in the interest of the party; I don’t have any personal malice against you,” he noted.
Weah’s apology comes barely a few days after he (Weah) and Deputy Police Commander for Operations, Col. Abraham Kromah, traded words of war with the CDC political leader calling Col. Kromah a rebel, and the deputy police chief in return, describing Weah as an unsophisticated idiot.
Currently a senatorial candidate for Montserrado County, Weah also accused the President’s son, Mr. Robert Sirleaf of using state securities to run his campaign and urged him (Robert Sirleaf) to desist.
The CDC political leader spoke Thursday at program marking his endorsement as the party’s candidate for the Montserrado County senatorial seat by 17 lawmakers mainly from the Congress for Democratic Change and the ruling Unity Party at the Capitol.
Weah, a former Peace Ambassador, who resigned early this week to enable him prepare for the senatorial race, stressed that it is about time everyone put aside all differences and make Liberia a common factor in the forward march to democracy, peace and economic stability.
