-Morlu Tells Weah Of Incompetent Public Officials
By Esau J. Farr
The Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change, Mulbah K. Morlu has called on President George M. Weah to weed out people he referred to as unqualified and incompetent public officials in his government.
According to the CDC chairman, the party (CDC) has observed with grave concern that there are more competent and qualified men and women of the party yet to be placed in appointed positions compared to those ‘privileged’ to be appointed by President Weah and subsequently confirmed by the Liberian Senate for the first two years of the CDC led government.
“Mr. President, we want to take this time on behalf of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) that it is about time that you weed out people who are not prepared to implement the mandate of the party because we believe that there are even more competent people on the ‘bench’ waiting to serve their country compared to some of the people who are currently holding public positions,” Mr. Morlu said.
He made the disclosure over the weekend when he addressed scores of supporters of the CDC in Monrovia.
The assertions come in the wake of mounting pressure on the ruling establishment to deliver to the expectations of thousands of Liberians who turned out and voted the CDC in 2017 on the basis of making a change in the governance of the country perceived to have been wrongly governed under former Liberian President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
The administration of President Weah is said to be witnessing and or experiencing continual protests from Liberians from all sectors ranging from bad governance to delay in salary payment amongst others.
The declaration from the CDC Chairman also came days after President George M. Weah is quoted as officially responding to a popular Liberian music titled, “Photo” with the President allegedly telling people who are complaining that they are not in the photo that they are not in the photo because they ‘jumped from one studio to another and therefore should blame themselves and check up with the many photographers who took their photos.
The music produced by a circular Liberian musician Jonathan Kofa popularly known as ‘Takun J’ is a political satire that ridicules politicians and supporters who supported the ascendency of the CDC to state power, but are reportedly barely feeling any impact of the government as expected.
The CDC Chairman also intoned that people who are not true partisans of the party should be replaced with what he described partisans who are still on ‘the bench’ for best results.
In recent times, critics of the government have branded the Weah led administration as a total failure to the vast majority of people who voted the government to power and a complete disappointment to thousands who believe in the ideology of the party party for the past thirteen years since its establishment in Liberia.
