That the House Speaker is third in line to the presidency, therfore Liberian Assemblyman in the lower house of the chambers should have given the election of Mr. Koffa serious thoughts before putting him on the ballot for consideration, his party the Congress for Democratic Change, should have considered this proposition also, by putting Liberia's interests first. Op-ed 

Electing the Corrupt People Party (CPP) and the CDC in 2023 will be a disaster and here is why.

  The Editor, From statistical evidence, the CPP lawmakers dominate the House of Representatives. Given that they (CPP) are professing to be the best alternative to the CDC-led government, it would have been a great idea if they had produced a Deputy Speaker to strike a balance of power in the Lower House. But guess what? They elected a CONVICTED CRIMINAL, Rep. Fonati Koffa. Can you imagine that? Do we expect the CPP to actually clean the mess created by UP and CDC ? Cllr. Jonathan Koffa was the town…

A question that we all must answer rapidly; this is not a question about just the removal of the Weah and his gangs. It is the question of sincerity, not one with parochial interests. If you follow suit with the agenda and remove the CDC, you may get the power you desire, but progressive ideologues and their men and women will retreat to the barracks and possibly begin the last stage of ending bad leadership, in Liberia, by fighting to redeem the country. Our people have suffered far too long for progressives to stand aside, we stand ready to present ourselves as instruments for this national transformation. Op-ed 

The Progressive intelligentsia struggle to free Liberia is still alive and well

    On January 22, 2018, Mr. Weah was sworn into office as president of the Republic, after maneuvering his way to political leadership for over a decade in a hustling so-called opposition lifestyle, that was quite unusual. This man attracted a huge score of support from a cross-section of the state predominantly young people who thought in their imagination that he represented their hopes and aspirations. These young people were carried away by his appealing successful soccer history and believed that if he was successful in his soccer career…

Liberians must brace themselves for the future. With Sirleaf protection still in play[ellen Sirleaf demanded protection for she and her cronies and family before she left power, it is rumored she paid off Weah and thus her PROTECTON], Morlu's remarks that if the CDC loses POWER it's partisans and Mr. Weah won't be protected, is also a cause for concerns. The Controversial CDC Chairman made those remarks during the bring back our money campaign. His utterances say even if Weah left power today he might seek protection or Sirleaf post-transition or Presidency arrangements, that now sees her absolved of all crimes or prosecution for PROTECTION. What we have on our hands, is a party---THE CONGRESS FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE, that may not want to leave POWER volunteeringly---and is refusing all attempts to reform the election Commission for an even playing field. The all-important election is headed by Ellen Sirleaf stooge, who is at best controversial and lacks credibility. Op-ed

Beyond this end, does Chief ‘Ponofalo’ Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor really have a future in CDC ahead of 2023 elections? It is likely that the Coalition for Democratic Change may severely crack if she is ousted. History is not too far from documenting this CRACK which puts the Liberian people in a better position of reclaiming their socio-economic and political destiny. It will be more advantageous for Liberia and Liberians if CDC crumbles under its own weight ahead of 2020 and 2023 elections. The struggle to redeem Liberia and Liberians remain unabated. Op-ed 

Does Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor Have A Future In The CDC?

    The Editor, Two high-ranking officials of CDC, Bong County Superintendent Esther Walker and CDC Chairman Mulbah Morlu, are on record for narrating through leaked audios about a hardcore conspiracy or sinister plot to remove H.E. Jewel Howard-Taylor as Vice Standard Bearer of CDC and Vice President of Liberia. Does this billboard of an impending CDC Retreat substantiate or validate such startling revelation? The Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) was birthed in 2004 and certificated by NEC as a political party in July 2005. Ambassador George M. Weah agreed…

CDC Senator Saah Joseph calls off hearing on increasing wave of violence in Liberia

    The security of the Liberian people is being seriously politicized and compromised as attempts Thursday, 22 August by some members of the Liberian Senate to query heads of state security institutions, including the Police were thwarted by senators from President George Weah’s ruling Coalition for Democratic Change. The Chambers of the Liberian Senate nearly erupted into violence when ruling CDC Senator Henry Yallah (Bong County) made a motion to send a presentation made by the Joint Security that was meant for questioning to the Committee on Judiciary, instead.…

If one were to couple the mayor’s statements with recent acts of violence, this would lead to a decision by the ICC to open an investigation into violence in Liberia because it falls within the category of crimes against humanity which will lead to future prosecutions of state-supported atrocities. Failure by the President of Liberia to forcefully and publicly reject and sanction the mayor may be deemed as silent support of Koijee. Public Policy 

Jefferson Koijee Risks Prosecution by the ICC for Election Related Violence

    Washington–– Liberia is slowly inching towards state-sponsored terrorism and violence against its citizens. Fatou Bensouda, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), stated, ‘when passions run high during elections, and people do not act with restraint, this may lead to large-scale crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC.

To me, this action on the part of the minister is an insult to the Liberian masses. The average Liberian lives on less than US$1.00 a day. McGill's loan to acquire a mansion, sends a bad message to everyone and solidifies the notion that the only quick way to get rich is working for government. This action on the part of the Minister of state undermines the "Pro-poor Agenda" News Politics 

George Weah’s CDC To Put Taylor’s Agenda Back On The Table

  Monrovia – On April 12, 2005, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA-40) introduced a Congressional resolution [H.Con. Res 127] calling on Nigeria to turn over the former Liberian President Charles Taylor to the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). In 2003, Taylor was granted asylum by Nigeria if he agreed to end his involvement in Liberian politics. He was exiled in Calabar, the capital of Nigeria’s southeastern Cross River State. It was the Connecticut lawmaker’s push, along with that of then Senator Barack Obama that eventually forced the hand of…

On Monday, January 25, 2016, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, consistent with Article 58 of our Constitution, provided the 53rd Legislature a report of the activities of Government.
