Failed Promises of George Weah’s Government

George Weah was elected president of Liberia in 2017 on a platform of change. He promised to create jobs, fight corruption, and improve the lives of ordinary Liberians. However, many of these promises have not been fulfilled.

One of Weah’s most notable failed promises was to establish a national airline, Lone Star Air. This promise was made in response to the high cost of airfare in Liberia, which made it difficult for people to travel within the country and to other parts of the world. However, Lone Star Air has not yet been launched, and there is no indication that it will be anytime soon.

Another failed promise was to create one million jobs. The unemployment rate in Liberia is still high, and many young people are struggling to find work. Weah has made some progress in this area, but he has not yet met his goal of creating one million jobs.

Weah also promised to construct a coastal highway. This project would have helped to improve transportation and trade in Liberia. However, the coastal highway has not yet been built, and it is unclear when it will be completed.

In addition to these major promises, Weah has also failed to fulfill many smaller promises. For example, he promised to build seven new soccer stadiums, but only one has been completed. He also promised to build a twin city on Bhali Island, but this project has not yet started.

The failure to fulfill these promises has led to frustration and disappointment among many Liberians. They feel that Weah has not delivered on his promises, and they are questioning his ability to lead the country.

There are a number of reasons why Weah has failed to fulfill his promises. One reason is that he inherited a difficult situation. Liberia is a poor country with a history of conflict. The economy is weak, and there is a lot of corruption. It will take time for Weah to make a significant difference in the lives of Liberians.

Another reason for Weah’s failures is that he has been distracted by other issues. He has been involved in a number of controversies, including allegations of corruption. This has taken up a lot of his time and energy, and it has made it difficult for him to focus on fulfilling his promises.

Finally, Weah may have simply made promises that he knew he could not keep. He may have been trying to win votes by promising things that he knew he would not be able to deliver. This is a common tactic in politics, but it is ultimately unfair to the people who believe these promises.

The failure of Weah to fulfill his promises is a major disappointment for many Liberians. It is important to hold him accountable for his promises, and to demand that he make progress on the issues that matter to the people of Liberia.
