The Senator of Montserrado County, Abraham Darius Dillon has warned President George Weah to stay faraway from the upcoming mid-term elections. Speaking on a popular talkshow program, 50-50 with T. Max Jlateh on Monday, July 20, 2020, Sen. Dillon threatened that Weah will vacate the presidency before 2023 if he rigs the upcoming senatorial election in Montserrado County. Senator Dillon has also accused officials of George Weah for violating the code of conduct by engaging into active political canvassing for their party in Montserrado County under the watchful eyes of the President. Dillon noted that officials of government who are breaching the code of conduct are during such under the direct instruction of President Weah who doesn’t have any due regard for the law he took oath to defend, support and protect.
Dillon’s threat comes in the wave of widespread speculation that President Weah over last weekend held meeting at his Jamaican Lodge with ministers and heads of agencies of government directly instructing them to use any available government’s resources to their disposal to ensure that Dillon doesn’t enjoy re-election. Montserrado County was once the political stronghold of George Weah and his CDC during the 12 years of Ellen’s administration. However, since Dillon’s victory as Senator over the CDC exposing their numerical nudity, the reality has changed as the opposition has taken grip in Montserrado, Liberia’s most populated county that accounts for over 1.5 million of the country’s population. Nevertheless, CDC is seen struggling and galvanizing all efforts to ensure that she reclaims her stronghold from the opposition in 2020.
