Auto-pilot? Liberians, led by the opposition, launch a mock-search of their President, George Weah, who they accuse of overstaying abroad, wasting Liberia's public resources

Liberians, led by the opposition, launch a mock-search of their President, George Weah, who they accuse of overstaying abroad, wasting Liberia's public resources.

George Weah who left the West African country in October 2022 is yet to be seen back in Liberia.

In late October, President Weah departed the country for Morocco and Egypt, to attend the MEDays Forum and COP27 respectively.

On November 9, he departed Egypt and arrived in Paris, France to attend the 5th Edition of the Paris Peace Forum.

He later flew to Qatar to witness his son Timothy Weah play for USA's national team at the ongoing World Cup championship.

A dispatch from Doha, Qatar, where the president is among the Guests of Honor of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, noted that President Weah will not be returning to Liberia until 18 December.

A Senator in the Liberian Parliament; Abraham Darius Dillon, says Weah's prolonged trip is costing Liberians millions of dollars of taxpayer's money, causing a public uproar.

“As it is now, the President has not demonstrated to us that his extension or stay to watch FIFA football games could yield any benefit to this country. And so, I’m asking the Liberian Senate to launch a legislative probe into the information provided by the President because, our information gathered, with evidence attached, shows that the President misled the Liberian people through the Liberian Senate for an extension," the Senator says.

Liberians are now claiming that President Weah has left the country on auto-pilot, in a nation where a huge population is struggling with soaring prices of basic commodities and poor infrastructure.

George Weah, a football legend and the only African winner of the prestigious Ballon d'Or award, came to power in 2017 on a pledge to fight poverty and corruption in Liberia.

He has been given a green light by his party to seek re-election in 2023, but critics say he has failed to honor his commitments.
