Unity Party deputy campaign manager in Margibi County District#5 is seriously warning Liberians especially, partisans of the Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC to lower their expectations for the incoming administration.
Mr. Andrew Nelson Yancy, also Block Manager of Steinbock Liberia, LTD. speaking to reporters in Weala, Margibi County recently says President-elect George Weah cannot perform miracle over night. He cautions that there are institutional problems that will not be solved over night.
“I just want to send out a call to Liberians as a whole to try to lower down their expectation, because I see that the expectation is over the mountain, so let’s bring it down to a trove that we can be able to control. George Weah is not going to be a miracle over night. Government is not seeing it from the outside, government is actually working from the inside and we have so much problems in our country. We’re even hearing that the country is almost in a financial crisis, those are things that need to be worked out. They are institutional; they are not going to be solved over night, so nobody should expect a miracle”, he explains.
However, he notes that Liberians are resilient people and they should now hold together to make the incoming government successful.“It is their responsibility because they have businesses running, children in school and they need to keep their lives running,” he reminds.
According to him, the best thing Liberians could do is to give the government chance to succeed.The Unity Party lost the 26 December 2017 runoff president election to the Coalition for Democratic Change, which former soccer icon George Weah elected as Liberia’s 25th President.
President-elect Weah is expected to be inaugurated Monday, 22 January in an elaborate ceremony at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium in Paynesville, outside Monrovia when he formally takes over power from outgoing President and Nobel Laureate, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
