LIBERIA: Cllr. Gongloe Terms ‘National Best Teacher Award’ Political
Presidential Hopeful Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe has applauded young female teacher, Precious Teewiah for her prowess and dedication to the tedious and laborious work of teaching that has probably merited her the ‘National Best Teacher Award’ the Ministry of Education bestowed. He said he empathizes with the young teacher because he himself is a teacher, and that his father was a teacher throughout his professional life. According to him, he knows what the young woman goes through daily to deliver the public service of teaching in helping to prepare human capital for the Country.
Yet, the renowned human rights advocate said the gift is political. Cllr. Gongloe mentioned that the Government preferred to award the young teacher one million Liberian Dollars, and a brand-new house when it is unable to regularly pay civil servants their salaries, or pays the wages after summarily and drastically cutting them simply to satisfy its deliberate acts of corruption that deplete the national treasuries.
Presidential Hopeful Gongloe recounted that the regime gave money and pleasantries to Nimba County motorcyclist Emmanuel Tuloe when he found fifty thousand United States Dollars and returned the cash without taking away a penny, to the rightful owner. He stressed, “The level of honesty demonstrated by the teenager has been a herculean task for the Government and its senior members to do.” Instead, he added, they steal from the Country and its people they serve to the extent that the nation is in an intensive care unit gasping for breath. Therefore, he asked Liberians not to re-elect President George Manneh Weah because doing so would mean signing their own death warrants.
Meanwhile, Cllr. Gongloe has implored farsighted members of the Legislature to vote against the amended National Elections Law in which the Government seeks to abolish the posts of Electoral Magistrates. According to him, the move is to prepare the ground for the regime to rig the Presidential and Legislative Election in 2023. This is so because the CDC-led government intends to recruit its partisans only as Electoral Magistrates so that they will oversee the rigging of the poll.
