Liberia’s Information Minister Rennie Described ANC Cummings As A “Joker”

The Liberian government through the Ministry of Information has blasted the political leader of the Collaborating Political Party (CPP), Alexander B. Cummings for his recent assertion against President George M. Weah 6th and final State of the Nation’s Address (SONA).

Information Minister, Ledgerhood Rennie during round-table analysis of the President’s SONA criticized the blind eyes that opposition leaders precisely the CPP political leader, Cummings are playing to the significant strides made thus far by the Weah-Taylor administration in development the country.

He at the same time also described the CPP political leader as a “joker” on grounds that he (Cummings) does not see anything positive happening since the inception of the Weah administration.

“The fact that we are here sitting in a peaceful atmosphere and tranquility shows that the Weah-led administration has done something to maintain peace for five years without UN troops on the ground,” Minister Rennie said.

Recently, at a press conference in reaction to President Weah’s SONA, Mr. Cummings stated that that unless Liberians vote out Weah, the country is doomed to sink deeper into poverty, with more suffering, stealing and wasteful spending of public resources.

According to him, Weah’s five years of rule has rendered Liberia weak, with no jobs, broken promises, while dumping Liberia in a deep hole with nearly “US$1 billion borrowed” and spent mostly among themselves.

“In the last six years, too many dreams have been shattered, too many hopes dashed, too many promises broken, too many lives lost mysteriously, while too many families continue to grieve and are hurt with no hope of closure for the deaths of loved ones, some of whom were breadwinners for the family,” he added.

But during the panel discussion with radio talk show hosts, Minister Rennie described it as, “shameful that Mr. Cummings and his likes chose to react the way they did to the SONA. It seems to me that the country is divided into two.”

“Because from where we sit, we see progress while they in the opposition see nothing. The initial argument we heard around here before the ascendancy of President Weah was that he was incapable of maintaining peace and security. But here we are; the country has been peaceful throughout his reign.

“So, it is shameful and pitiful for Mr. Cummings to say the President is joking. I think the joke is on him. What has he done for Liberia? Do you have to be president before you help your people? No, it doesn’t have to be. So, when somebody says the President is joking, I think the joke is on him because he refused to see the progress that this President has made in his administration over the last five years of his tenure,” Rennie blasted.

Meanwhile, the MICAT boss further indicated that despite some difficulties being experienced by the country, the government is gradually making progress addressing the bread and butter issues for the citizenry.
