President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

A Response to political Message of this nature, of agreement/disagreement, a message on/or regarding local, national and international matters, requires detailed analysis of the issues covered by the message, in terms of law, relevance, philosophy, policy planning & development, implementation, etc., etc.

The facts of Liberian History tell us that Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the current, retiring President of Liberia and presenter of the Final Message, began her political career as an “Ideological Under-study & Foot-Soldier” of the True Whig Party (TWP) of our founding Fathers, the African-American settlers.

History, also, tell us that TWP founded and ruled a Single-party State (Liberia) with an iron, dictatorial hand; proposed and passed the-now famous, or infamous, unitary-structured law of government; and withheld recognition as citizens of the over-whelming majority of the nation’s population until 1904, 57 years after political independence. The Party arrogated all political and economic powers and control to the settlers, including the Political Economy of the Nation for 133 years (and continuing to this day) leading to the military event of April 12, 1980, on the theme of “Abuse of Power and Rampant Corruption”, that awaked the conscious and anger of the Liberian People, for the first time in real terms.

Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf rose to political prominence in the hierarchy of the TWP during the administration of the late President, Dr. William R. Tolbert, as Minister of Finance, a public agency of government which was, as now, known as the “guru” or epicenter of “get-rich-quick schemes” – public dishonesty or corruption - graft, greed and thievery.

The highlight of this position was that Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf presided over the expenditure of the more than US $25 million for the July 15, 1979 hosting of the OAU Conference – the “floating hotel” and construction of the OAU Village which included Hotel Africa, several high-profiled Villas and the Unity Conference Center in Virginia, Liberia. This adventure was characterized by reported, massive miss-management and dishonesty (www. Washingtonpost.com/oau/meeting/Liberia). Today, the “OAU Village” is a historic disaster of public funds spent on Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s so-called “sustainable development”, but a colossal waste of public resources into private pockets.

After the military coup d’état of April 1980, Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf fled to the United States of America and there, with several other Liberians, conceived, planned, proposed and organized the Association for Constitutional Democracy in Liberia (ACDL), the premier organization for the removal of the government of Liberia by force of arms, an illegal, political action.

As Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ACDL, Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf recruited the late AFL Commanding General, Thomas Quiwonkpa, to lead and carry out, and he did lead and carried out the first, but failed coup d’état attempt of November 12, 1985, during which an estimated thousands of innocent lives were lost, including the General’s (Tom Woewiyu, Open Letter to Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, www.theliberiandialogue.org, August 30, 2005).

Disappointed with the Quiwonkpa failed attempt, but determined, Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf convinced her American friends and prominent US government officials that “Mr. Charles Taylor (who was being held in a maximum security prison in the State of Massachusetts, USA, on extradition request for trial in Liberia for alleged theft of several millions of US dollars) will not get a fair trial in Liberia”. She influenced the American officials to release Mr. Taylor from the prison and she, under the banner of the ACDL, recruited Mr. Taylor to undertake the armed coup d’état against the government of Liberia. The rest is history (Tom Woewiyu’s Open Letter to Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (www.theliberandialogue.org,August 30, 2005 and HotpepperLiberia.com/ January 4, 2016).

This conclusion follows from research information, detailed reports and analysis by individuals who should know and knew, based on their close association with Mrs.  Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

Now, in addition to the world-validated Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf War Machine of looting, plunder & destruction (of personal properties and the nation’s meager economic infrastructure),  refugees, human suffering and the death of an estimated quarter of a million Liberians, Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, as President of Liberia, admits today that “we have not met the Anti-Corruption Pledge made in 2006”. This admission tells it all.

Although there were and are several other pledges unmet, but the problem of the “unmet anti-corruption pledge” and the unprecedented, inevitable increased/increasing level of lies, deceit, public dishonesty, official thievery or corruption, in Liberia, do have critical, crucial and negative impact on hunger, disease, healthcare delivery, poverty, education, agriculture, national transport/communication (the premier multiplier effect in economic development), efficient/effective public-service delivery, etc., etc.

This is that which Politics is all about. But Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has reached the end of her road – retirement.

One may ask, what or where does this condition lead us and say of and about 2017?

Nothing new, substantively, because all declared candidates for President of Liberia premised on assumptions of 1847, the Unitary structure of government utilized during these 170 years, the operations of their governments, if elected, come 2017.  They promised to continue the obsolete, failed policy to “stay the course” in support of the con men & women –  rascals, rebels, dishonest, liars, thieves, bandits, killers – some in government and parading the nation and international community as “honorables”.

But the major problem of Liberia’s under-development is S T R U C T U R A L.  Is it not reasonable, then, that any trained, experienced, patriotic and reasonable political leader-politician responsible to the citizens would seek change/replacement of the unitary structure for reforms and transformation of the Nation’s political enterprise, especially,  in the light  of doing the same thing for more than a century with disastrous results of a failed state?

We think so. But these “politicians”, including the emerged/emerging political class of all ethnic/tribal persuasions, the so-called “new breed”, stocked their guns in the decadent past.

Taking into account Ellen´s conduct below as exposed by Chris Neyor, it is fair to say Hon. Gbala is correct and saying the truth! And the choice of photograph of Ellen is just in place.


"I brought to your attention that $2 million had been offered to me in bribe with a request that I do not take certain executive action against an oil company. I quoted to you portion of my remarks when I took over NOCAL few months earlier that no amount of money would be big enough to make me betray you and our people.

What I got out of that was your ridicule of me before the Petroleum Technical Committee in the Cabinet Room at your office that I was parading myself as the most perfect man in the government boasting that I could not take bribe.

Justice Minister Christina Tah and your Legal Advisor Cllr Seward Cooper (now NOCAL Board Chairman) were among those at that meeting. They can bear witness. Most of those at that meeting told me later how shock they were with your characterization of me." Chris Neyor Ellen´s first term Energy Adviser.

Quite amazing how Mr. Bai Gbala has become so vociferous in recent years as this champion and advocate of democracy, good governance, press freedom and especially the rule of law in Liberia. One wish this man were alive and in Liberia to forestall the unbridled brutality and tyranny of the Doe regime, which excesses no doubt stoked the enmity undergirding the internecine war and carnage that engulfed our country for nearly two decades. As I have unfailingly reminded other such self-righteous sermonizers of his breed in that regard, his just happens to be 250,000 lives too late. An epiphany too, per chance? Let the ghosts of our fallen be the judge. Lord, hear our prayers. ...Carpe diem!

One wish this man were alive and in Liberia, and exhibiting these same level of brazen heroics in order to have forestalled the unbridled brutality and tyranny of the Doe regime, which excesses no doubt stoked the enmity undergirding the internecine war and carnage that engulfed our country for nearly two decades. As I have unfailingly reminded other such self-righteous sermonizers of his breed in that regard, his just happens to be 250,000 lives too late. An epiphany, per chance? Let the ghosts of our fallen loved ones be the judge. Lord, hear our prayers. ...Carpe diem!
