Monrovia, Liberia- President Weah is not happy with the current state-of-affairs of the country, and wants to make some radical changes, according to reports.
Sources close to the President say, the many negative reports about the Liberian economy, coupled with local and international media reports about happenings in the country are some reasons why the President is unhappy and is being pushed to act.
“He didn’t want to offend his top guys and his base at first, but the way things are going, he is afraid that even his base might start being disenchanted without radical measures,” a source with knowledge of the President’s decision told The Liberian Billboard.
There are also reports that the President is expected to initiate some major austerity measures, something that was recommended by the World Bank and IMF during the just ended spring meeting in Washington D.C.
According to the report, President Weah is expected to act on the IMF and World Bank recommendations by reducing government wage bill and expenses, as well as conduct a major shakeup at Ministries and agencies which have direct oversight or association with the economy.
Sources say, the President should have made changes since January but was still observing the turn of events in the country.
“The way things have turned, I think he knows it is getting out of hand. He is even angry that many officials are hardly taking their jobs seriously. He is definitely not happy,” another source closed to the President said.
Whether the President’s action will be taken at the mass meeting called at the CDC headquarter for today is not clear, however, there are suggestions that the President will talk tough or even announce his upcoming decisions from the posture of many top partisans.
