President George Manneh Weah has called on all youth and young people of Liberia to respect the elders and leaders of the land. Remarking on his Montserrado County Tour in District#12, the Liberian Leader said a youth that fails to respect and honor its leader is not qualified to lead. He made the statement when the youth and young people almost ascended on Representative Dr. George Semah.
According to the Liberia Leader, the booing of Representative Semah was unacceptable and must not be repeated in any part of the country, especially in the presence of top government officials.
President Weah mounted the podium and blasted his partisans for disrespecting their leaders even if they have issues or are dissatisfied with them. He noted that the upcoming elections are the best time to make new friends and not to shy away from the opposition.
According to the people of the district, the action was due to the unrepresentation of Dr. Semah in the district. They said, the representative has done nothing in the district and is doing noting to solve their problem. The Independent Canadian turn representative of District #12 was also booed by his citizens due to his involvement in the recent Lofa County Senatorial By-Election which he did not win.
President Weah warned that no one should disrupt the 19 years of peace. He blasted his partyism for behaviors that does not represent the party. “The beret you are wearing represents the party and not you, CDC is not a violent party, we are peaceful and it should be maintained at all times. If you are just joining us with such behavior please change or go back to where you learned that from”.
