THERE IS NEW horizon of hope and excitement amongst Liberians since Ambassador George Manneh Weah was declared winner of the long-winding electoral process, the first Liberia witnessed since its foundation, necessitated by the legal challenge initiated by few of the participating parties. Unmatched in the history of election victory, the celebrations accorded Weah’s victory signaled an overwhelming agreement that he is consensus candidate for Liberians. 

AS A PROOF, on the daythe final results were announced, people of all ages, voting or non-voting ages took to the streets in fervent mood, singing and dancing and chanting slogans of all sorts. “Our troubles are over; our children will have free education, there will be free medical services, our dreams are realized,” some of the jubilating crowds echoed, while some crisscrossed moving vehicles. For some, “He is our messiah, the savior.”  With all things put aside, these hilariously convivial celebrations clearly uncapped the weightiness, the enormity of the task President-elect Weah carries, an unexplainable expectations that he will shoulder, very ably, the elephantine burdens of a country so lagged in spite of vast natural endowments of resources.

EQUALLY SO, WE are aware the President-elect has been demonstrating preparedness to pilot this country in an atmosphere of quietude, peace, reconciliation and oneness, while addressing the salient problems of development, job creation and lifting Liberians out of the depth of poverty. He has been committing himself to making Liberia “great again” by ensuring the equitable application of its resources, ensuring corruption is subdued. In a statement last week at the Headquarters of the National Elections Commission (NEC), President-Elect Weah assured Liberians, “I will not fail you.”

WITH MUCH YET still expected from him, “I will not fail you” calculatedly serves as the pinnacle of the wishes of all Liberians, as it is his determination to better the conditions of Liberians and Liberia. From the moment he uttered these words, the throne of history has been shaken as Liberians began to take note and watch, henceforth, where he and his team will take the country. “I will not fail you” can only be equated to President Johnson Sirleaf’s anti-corruption pledge in 2006, which she failed to uphold and has partly hunted her negatively. Hereafter, Liberians will remind the President-elect of this pledge, and will eventually love or hate him as he works toward it.  No Liberian, in the slightest of imagination, will think of ‘magic wine’ solution to existing problems, but no Liberian will also harbor the slightest of drawback on the part of the president-elect concerning his pledge.

IT IS NO gainsay that the President-elect stands on the bad or good side of history, only if he does or fails to do what is expected of him, evidenced by his massive endorsements at the polls. As normal of Liberians, we imagine how opposition political groupings, those he defeated at the polls, will wish his failure, his downfall, to back their acquirements that he was unprepared to lead. But, he is a just the head of government and the task ahead requires the sacrifice of all Liberians, working together with him, and not undermining and deriding him. Mr. President-elect, Liberians hold you by your words “I will not fail you.” CONGRATULATIONS!
