The world must applaud Liberians for their resilience in dealing with financial hardship and poverty created by their government. The government failed the people despite international support. The European Union (EU) gave Liberia $300m from 2014 to 2021 for the followings:
There is no evidence in the country showing the accomplishment of any of the above expectations. In a recent meeting, the government failed to provide proof to the EU officials. It is not a surprise because the Sirleaf administration failed to address these issues. It is unlikely for the Weah administration, dominated by Sirleaf's former officials, to make satisfactory progress in solving the problems. Democracy is based on the idea that the government should fear the people and not the other way around. It is not the case in Liberia. The government must put people's interests first if it wants the people's support.
The government's failure contributes to anti-government campaigns at home and abroad. Many Liberians support different groups (talk-show hosts, opposition parties, and others) with no proven credibility because their government is doing them an injustice.
Weah administration received $40m in 2022 from World Bank to improve the investment opportunity and increase the efficiency of trade in Liberia. However, the government did not disclose any plan for creating investment opportunities in Liberia during the 2022 cabinet retreat in Ganta City, Liberia. The Weah administration received limited outside financial assistance due to credibility issues. The US government and other donors are concerned about corruption, a lack of transparency, and accountability. President Weah must pay attention if he wants to remain president of Liberia.
