MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President George Weah has fulfilled another massive promise made to traditional chiefs and county health teams during last year County Tour.
It followed the presentation of forty-pick-ups and one-hundred-fifteen motorbikes to traditional chiefs, and fifteen ambulances to health authorities on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.
President Weah said:” The vehicles and motorbikes will add great dignity to the work of chiefs and elders in the counties, who are helping to maintain the peace.”
President Weah told the traditional leaders to maintain the vehicles and motorbikes, as they are meant to boost their movements and make life convenient.
He also dismissed as disservice, criticism of his gesture from former Government officials.
President Weah said:” After twelve years, previous government could not buy bicycles for traditional chiefs, but some former officials have the bravery to criticize the gifts.”
Meanwhile, President Weah said the State of the Nation Address delivered at the Capitol on Monday, January 24, 2022, was from his heart, signifying a message of goodwill, peace, understanding and good governance.
In another development, the Superintendent Council of Liberia has officially petitioned President George Weah to re–contest in the 2023 General Elections.
The Chairman of the Council, Grand Bassa County Superintendent Janjay Baikpek, read the petition statement Tuesday, January 25, 2022, on behalf of his colleagues in Paynesville.
Superintendent Baikpeh said:” The decision was reached based on careful review of massive developments undertaken by President Weah’s Administration.”
To ensure President Weah’s re-election come 2023, he said they will go all out in the trenches of the counties to campaign for the Liberian Leader.
Superintendent Baikpeh said the petition decision is not only popular with members of the Superintendent Council of Liberia, but also citizens who endorsed the decision.
