Nimba County Senator and leader of the Movement for Reconstruction and Democracy (MRD), Prince Y. Johnson, has predicted that “God is no longer on the side” of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
He said his assumption is based on the manner and form the ruling party performed in recent midterm elections nationwide where the opposition bloc won majority seats, especially in big counties.
Johnson made these comments on Sunday, December 13, during the morning worship service. He also accused President George Weah of running the government based on “sectionalism, tribalism, corruption and friendship” level, as all of the cabinet members hail from the southeast.
He is therefore calling for the restructuring of the regime so as to reflect balances if not, power will gradually slip from the hands of the administration to the opposition bloc.
“God spoke to the Liberian people to elect us into various offices to fight corruption, sectionalism, nepotism or tribalism but that is not the case at the moment. Because God is not on CDC side,” Johnson predicted.
He stated further that being that God is not in favor of what is happening where other counties are been excluded from key or senior government positions including the cabinet; things will not continue to go well.
“There are too many wolves in sheep clothing. In the night, they are with the opposition but in the day they claim of being with the regime playing those double games seeking the downfall of the very government they are serving,” Johnson emotionally stated.
