Where have you ever heard about this being done politically in the selection of political leader for an opposition group? Where? This is what happens when a group of people listen to some little guy who just completed a degree or certificate program and still finds it hard to distinguish between ideology and real life experiences.

Poor Alexander Benedict Cummings, Jr.—-It is something else: his aloofness.

by Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh Alexander Benedict Cummings, Jr. is a Liberian citizen who is seen by his determined political foes as an outsider, a carpetbagger in a country where he was born in 1956 to Liberian parents. This is because like some of his opponents, Mr. Cummings is also aiming for the highest office in the land, the Liberian presidency. As a Liberian who personally have encountered similar pushback in some corners because of my enormous political activities in the United States other than in Liberia where “the action is” and…

Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! Politics

The nexus between education and crime – a look beyond Dr. Daniel E. Cassell’s alleged offending. 

By Samuel Sakama A HIGH intelligence quotient (IQ) or even an earned Ph.D. does not make one a ‘good person. Put bluntly, education does not necessarily make one a ‘good person. But research generally shows that having an education reduces one’s risk of committing a crime.  THERE is a causal link between educational attainment and crime. For example, the majority of prisoners across the US (the world’s biggest jailer) are functional illiterates; followed by those who attempted/completed secondary education, post-secondary education, graduate school, and then postgraduate. The same can be…
