“Deceptive” -JNB Campaigners Bite CDC-Led Gov’t

The JNB Tact Team expresses disappointment in the government’s recent offer terming it as a deceptive offer to “help” former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.
Addressing a press release signed by Information Minister Ledgerhood J. Rennie on behalf of the CDC-led government, the campaigners for JNB said it is a failed and totally unacceptable propaganda stunt that seeks to politicize the health situation of a statesman.
According to the government’s Friday, January 13, 2023 release, the Government of Liberia expressed concern following reports of the ill health of former Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, who is said to have checked into a local hospital this week.
The government stated as a statesman and political leader of a national party, his well-being is of utmost interest to the country, therefore, the government has initiated contacts with family members of the former Vice President and offered to help in whatever way they deem necessary, while also wishing him a speedy recovery.
But unapologetically, the tact team said instead of the government focusing on bettering the lives of the people that elected them, it is more focused on the upcoming elections and propaganda.
“We condemn, in the strongest terms, the politicizing of the health condition of former Vice President Boakai, as is deceptively being done by the George Weah-led government,” the tact team expressed.
“We caution the government to focus on fixing the healthcare system which has been crippled under the watch of President Weah, instead of releasing politically charged statements that are completely erroneous and misleading,” the release signed by its National Chairperson, Telia Urey mentioned.
The JNB team noted, “Should the Government want to help citizens with health conditions, we admonish them to concentrate on helping the driver and security guard who were involved in an accident with Minister Samuel Tweah and were left in Liberia to languish at a hospital without access to good healthcare, while Finance Minister Tweah and his wife were taken out of the country to a Turkish hospital for advanced medical treatment.”
They stated that the Standard Bearer of the Unity Party, former Vice President Boakai will not be tricked into any form of propaganda war with this unserious government that lacks priorities and focus.
The team expressed, “This is another clear sign that our government is being reduced to a circus, as opposed to carrying out serious government duties that are essential to the well-being of Liberians, whose lives the government has disappointingly jeopardized through rampant corruption, misrule, and irresponsible and poor leadership.”
The Tact Team thanked all its supporters for their genuine concern, prayers, and thoughts.
