“We Beg You Mr. President, 2019 Has Come, Let the Findings on Missing Billion Be Released” – Liberians Urge Their President

President George Manneh Weah

Liberians, who believed President George Manneh Weah will succeed in his quest to successfully rule Africa’s oldest Republic, are calling on him to be decisive on the issue of the alleged missing sixteen billion Liberian dollars and allow its findings to be released as to the facts surrounding this missing money.

Speaking to the GNN prior to the December 31st Watch Night at various worship centers around Monrovia and its environs, those interviewed regarding the alleged missing billions said the year 2019 has come, while the 2018 is now a history, said the Liberian leader must prevail on members of the committee setup by him to probe the allegation if he is indeed sincere, and has nothing to hide.

“President Weah must see reason to speedily bring to book those who will be named in the findings as principle culprits. The President must call on the committee that is given the authority to independently probe those allegedly link to this missing money;  delay is dangerous,” Abraham Q. Johnson, a resident of Virginia, Montserrado County speaking to the GNN stressed.

For Ellen Thomas, a businesswoman who resides in Paynesville, Joe Bar Community, said she is among those who are anxious to hear the findings on the missing money, adding, “I am baffled on the slow pace to publicly release the findings on the missing billions. We have gone nearly five months since this committee was setup to probe that link to this scam,” Ms. Thomas who appeared disappointed during this interview said.

Dozens of others who were interviewed   by our staff spoke similarly on the issue, and urged the Liberian leader to call on those appointed to probe this case to come out and inform the Liberian people regarding the missing money, it is untrue about the allegation, we deserve to know, one of those interviewed only identifies as ‘Old man Flomo’ said.
