We’ll correct the wrongs in 2023
-Amb. Lewis Brown

A member of Team Cummings, Ambassador Lewis G. Brown says the political leader of the Alternative National Congress and standard bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) Mr. Alexander B. Cummings will correct the wrongs of the Weah administration.
Team Cummings is the campaign team of the ANC/CPP leader in his bid to defeat incumbent President George Manneh Weah at the poll next year.
“We made a big mistake in 2017, and the President himself alluded to the fact that he did nothing, and the Liberian people elected him, but come 2023, we will correct those mistakes because this President ain’t able the job.” Ambassador Brown says.
He laments: “With the hardship that they put you through yet, they want to retain power, but I want to see those stupid people that will elect them, when all the President cares is dancing, playing and having fine time.”
Speaking at the 13th Thanksgiving exercise of Kollah Foundation Institute in Paynesville outside Monrovia, the Liberian politician notes that various health facilities across the country lack drugs and beds because the government is incompetent, adding “book doesn’t matter, but if you can’t hear you will feel.”
Amb. Brown, who formerly served as Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, says the failure of President Weah to transform the country and improve the living conditions of citizens are clear indications of his incompetence, as a leader.
“They told you book doesn’t matter, because book doesn’t matter that’s why today, Liberian men and women are climbing over Lebanese people fence just to get rice. Education is the way out of poverty, education is also the key to leadership; anyone who says education and book does not matter, you have seen what they have done in six years by knowing no book”, he infers to the CDC-led government.
According to him, everywhere around the world, the first years six are considered the best years for every president, arguing that it is that time he will show to the citizens what he is capable of, to encourage them to give him a second six years.
President Weah is seeking another six years in office amid widespread corruption, leading to the designation of three officials by the United States Government.
“The thing you’re feeling in both your homes and schools, including the communities, are the best this government has to offer”, Ambassador Brown adds.
For his part, the Chief Executive Officer of the Kollah Foundation Martin Kollah, urges Liberians, particularly parents and guardians to find solutions to the difficulties they face by voting wisely in the upcoming elections.
“We are gearing up to a very big decision-making time in our country, you parents are the ones crying every day that things are not easy; it’s time to decide whether things will get better or continue in the next six years”, cautions.
He says the 2023 presidential and legislative elections are crucial because they will provide citizens an opportunity to decide their own destinies.
“I have always told people that if they think their current living condition is good, then let them continue, but if their living condition isn’t correct then there’s a need to remove this President from office.
I am saying this because I know parents will cry every day, and it’s about time to find solutions to that cry”, he underscores. Editing by Jonathan Browne
