“Ask Them for Tangible Plans For Roads” -Team Cummings Says Well-defined Plans Ready, Not Theory

MONROVIA – The road to the 2023 presidential and legislative elections seems to be getting slipperier by the day as political institutions are in a tailspin battle to gain the voters’ attention especially when it comes to who is best positioned to deliver tangible results on promises made before elections. In what is now being considered by his critics as a spur of the moment politico-speak when he appeared on a local talk show recently and told the Liberian people that within the first 100 days of his administration upon winning the presidency, no one would ride on muddy roads in the country, former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai is being asked by Team Cummings to show his juice, because, as for them, Cummings has a well-defined blueprint to tackle Liberia’s perennial bad roads situation. “Don’t let them theorize to you about some 100 days; ask them for tangible plans.   

These elections will be about the ‘what ‘and ‘how’,” Muniru Nyei, a Team Cummings policy technocrat stated over the weekend in reaction to Ambassador Boakai’s assertion.

Taking to social media in a rambunctious fashion, Mr. Nyei wondered whether Liberians are aware that Presidential hopeful Alexander Cummings is far ahead of plans on how to immediately tackle the poor condition of our rural roads.

“Under Project Liberia36, rural roads are captured and detailed under the pillar called Special Projects-Rural Roads. In our ‘Problem Analysis Report’, with the aid of closed-loop GIS mapping and ground data, we have identified and documented major black spots that required urgent interventions. Just to name a few, the section between Zleh and Zai towns approaching Zwedru from Nimba, the stretch approaching Putuken between Grand Gedeh and River Gee, etc.

“Watch out soon as we introduce to the Liberian people the Alexander B. Cummings ambitious infrastructure plan dubbed “Liberia36”, which aims to get Liberia’s basic and critical infrastructures fully functional by 2036,” Mr. Nyei averred.

The statement from Mr. Muniru Nyei, pundits opine, seems to echo the sentiments of another public policy wonk, Dr. Ibraham Nyei, who on April 30, 2021 wondered how a political neophyte like Mr. Cummings would so suddenly ascend to the pinnacle of the opposition leadership even after lowly performing in the 2017 presidential and general elections.

“Alexander Cummings is effectively the leader of the opposition in Liberia. How a fifth-place candidate and political novice transformed himself as the leader of the opposition in the same space with a second-place candidate with many years of experience has left us pundits wondering,” Dr. Nyei had stated at the time.

    Nyei is a joker and a clown to rant such rubbish that ““Alexander Cummings is effectively the leader of the opposition in Liberia.” when there is no collaboration of opposition political parties , and that Cummings ANC is the only party that remained in the dead and cremated CPP.

    So, Nyei according to you Nyei, “the opposition” is that batch of “43” notoriously corrupt and jobless leftover opportunists and stooges??? You must have attained your doctorate in comedy. You want to spin, and you have no idea about propaganda or rhetoric, hence you have disgraced yourself as A LIAR AND A JOKER.

    If the false impression the clown Nyei wants to make about Cummings made any sense, then why did Cummings and his gang invite Boakai to Accra to bribe Boakai with six million US Dollars to have the Unity Party return to the dead CPP and step aside for the neophyte Cummings?

    What sort of “leader of a given opposition” is that who cannot even boast of a single district, county, or region as a stronghold?

    Or according to Nyei the joker, “the opposition” is that batch of “43” notoriously corrupt and jobless leftover opportunists and stooges comprising UNCONSEQUENTIAL POLITICAL TROLLOPS AND POLITICAL PROSTITUTES AS TOGAR MACKINTOSH LEWIS BROWN, DANIEL CHEA, MUSA BILITY, ETC.???
