Liberian Lawyer Threatens Legal Action Against President Weah

A Liberian Lawyer, Cllr. Arthur Johnson has threatened to take legal action against President George Manneh Weah for choosing singing over doing the Liberian people’s job for which he was elected particularly in the wake of mountaineering economic hardship in the country.

According to Cllr. Johnson, President Weah was to perform a specific task of leading the Liberian people to better living conditions and not to sing when the economy is in recession and families are going to bed on empty stomach.

“The President is the father of the nation. The timing of his music is not right. It is like a father who leaves his family without food and return singing to them while they are hungry,” the Liberian lawyer said.

The Liberian lawyer stressed that if President George Weah does not stop and focus on the job for which he was elected, he will petition the Supreme Court of Liberia for a Writ of Mandamus to compel the Liberian leader to do the work he was elected to do.

He indicated that his action would be consistent with Chapter 16, Section 16.21 of the Civil Procedure Law of Liberia.

Cllr. Johnson spoke in an interview with Truth FM Judicial Reporter, Peter Nimely Toby on Tuesday, December 22, 2020.

President George Weah Tuesday released his fourth song titled: ‘Happy Birthday’ but was greeted with miss reactions from several Liberians.
