From the morning, the meeting was scheduled at 4pm, they were drinking, and drinking in a very cool air conference room. That Ambassador, Senator George Weah was drinking Gordon Gin, and at the same time sweating profusely. What was astonishing is Ambassador Weah was calling his Party’s Chairman, Nathaniel McGill as first partisan several times, and McGill said to Weah, something wronged today, Mr. Standard Bearer I’m Chairman,” Senator Johnson given his reason told the Liberian people via the FABRA Radio.
