Albino Society Boss On Failed Politicians

The Founder and Executive Director of the Liberia Albino Society, Patricia Logan, asserted that Liberian politicians’ reelection missions usually fail because they serve themselves instead of the citizens.

The latest assertion of Madam Logan comes a few weeks after President George Manneh Weah lost the November 14, 2023 presidential runoff election to former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, with a margin of over 20,000 votes.

Probably, the statement is also in response to the defeat of several members, including House Speaker, Bhofal Chambers of the 54th Legislature, during the October 10, 2023 presidential and legislative elections across the country.

Addressing hundreds of Liberians at the celebration of her ‘Golden Jubilee’ over the weekend, held at her Caldwell Residence, Madam Logan stressed that many Liberian leaders are noted for dashing the hopes of the ordinary citizens upon taking power.

“The reason why our politicians in this country are not serving the people and they (the citizens) are taking them out is because they serve themselves first,” she expressed in a very strong tone.

The LAS Executive Director noted that it is important for leaders to forget about enriching themselves and wholeheartedly serve their people, especially when they are called to serve.

Logan maintained that a well-mannered leader, leading with accountability, sincerity, and integrity, is universally respected than a pretentious courtesy accorded a leader due to ill-gotten wealth while in service.

Madam Patricia Logan disclosed that by this time, she should have been recognized as one of the richest Liberians, adding that she has been, and is still, receiving funds in the name of the Liberia Albino Society to run the institution.

“I should have been a rich person today, but you know what, my family’s integrity, as well as character, is on the table. We’ve got children’s children coming out of that family that will be great,” the LAS Boss intimated.

At the same time, Madam Patricia N. C. Logan urged Liberian leaders running the day-to-day affairs of the nation and young leaders, as well as other policymakers, especially in the private sector, to never fall prey to any temptation that would ruin their character.

Meanwhile, at the well-attended and colorful event, Madam Logan reaffirmed her continued support to providing the needed services to her neighbors, family members, the community, the underprivileged and the country.

She also thanked the administrative arm, nursing department, and other sub-divisions of the Liberia Albino Society, and other Liberian citizens from across different localities, for the special treatment given to her during the celebration of her ‘Golden Jubilee’.

“I don’t even know how to thank all of you my lovely people and family, and trust me, I pray to God that I want to reach 120 years before I leave this earth, and I will be straight and strong,” Madam Logan asserted.
