The Vice-Presidential candidate of the opposition Coalition Democratic Change (CDC), and former wife of UK detainee, former Liberian President, Charles Ghankay Taylor has hit hard at people should called educated Liberians who she noted have misled Liberia over the years should not be voted for come October 10, 2017 during the Country’s pending elections.

Speaking to group of women in Monrovia yesterday, May 16, 2017, the former First Lady of Liberia said educated Liberians over the years have used their education to fool the people of Liberia; enriching themselves and plundering into the wealth of the Country.

Making reference of the 19 senators who pledged their support to Vice President Joseph N. Boakai who is also a Presidential candidate for the ruling Unity Party, said those who pledged their support to the Unity Party Standard Bearer for his presidential bid for the 2017 was wrong, and asked Liberians not give them credence in their bid to usher in Boakai as the next President of Liberia.

The former First Lady’s statement received a huge reaction from the public who called on a local radio to condemn her for the statement, noting that her statement implied that Liberians should not take education seriously.

Speaking on a local radio station today, May 17, 2017, Mr. McGill further said the coming to power of the CDC led Government will see the arrest and detention of former Government who with impunity are breeding as their lifestyle.
