The two-day just ended Ganta, Nimba County communiqué signed among twelve opposition political parties to collaborate in their bid to dethrone the ruling Unity Party (UP) as the 2017 general and presidential elections draw closer, Liberians who spoke to team of reporters say they are overwhelmed of this recent political development describing this communiqué as belittled.
“Politicians must learn now to put their differences aside and steak to one decision in order to seek the interest of the County, as I speak to you I am over happy of this move by these political parties,” Amos Q. Dweh speaking to the team of GNN during this survey yesterday noted.
For Nathaniel James, he sees this political marriage between the twelve opposition political parties leaders as a ‘mere bluff’ “Watch me my brother, you will hear before Liberia’s election year, 2017 a breakaway; be reminded by brother some of them are not reliable in their decision taken,” he said.
Ma Wata Kollie who claimed to be a diehard member of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) of Senator George Weah and one of the signatories of the Ganta communiqué advised those party of the political collaboration to be mindful of what she called ‘wolf in sheep clothing’, stressing, “I hope they will be together in the political drive.”
For others who believed that it is better to be with the devil you know than the angel you have seen, as noted by Aaron K. Daniels who said he has no link with any of the political parties that are contesting for the 2017 general and presidential elections said, “I hope their collaboration will gain a fruitful results for their quest for the County’s presidency, and also pray that they will succeed in their quest,” Daniels expressing his feelings about this new political development said.
“Since all of them seems to be politically greedy, old man Joseph Nyuma Boakai, the currently Vice President of Liberia who I believe is more matured will be Liberia’s next President. Yes I am proud to be a supporter of the Vice President in his bid for the presidency,” Jacob Tugbeh who is visiting Monrovia from the southeast of the Country, Sinoe County boastfully told the GNN.
With all of these divided insinuations on the part of Liberians regarding the just ended Ganta convention by opposition political parties, it has been discovered that majority of the opinions gathered by our team of reporters that the current Vice President and one of the contenders in the pending elections is gradually winning the hearts and minds of Liberians who believed that due to his political maturity will make the difference; still putting him top of our opinion poll of last week.
