Africa-Press – Liberia. Amid controversies rocking the early stage of President Joseph Nyumah Boakai’s leadership here, a key opposition Senator, Nathaniel Falo McGill, cautions President Boakai not to be misled.

Sen. McGill, who chairs the CDC Legislative Caucus, notes that the President is giving too much attention to his advisors rather than looking at the bigger picture.

Margibi County Senator Nathaniel Falo McGill is cautioning President Joseph Nyumah Boakai not to allow officials of his government especially, in the Executive Mansion to undermine his administration.

Speaking in a live press conference on Wednesday, February 28, Senator McGill said, “We should do everything for the sake of peace. I want to appeal to the President, my Uncle. Please, don’t allow those people in the Mansion to undermine your administration. You fought to be President for this country. Liberian people gave it to you. Your concern now should be how to keep the country peaceful.”

He said the President should not listen to those calling themselves legal advisors, seeking attention, popularity and wanting to exercise power.

The Senate Committee Chair on Education wonders how the government could deny people of employment just because they wore party T-shirts without going through the legal system.

According to the senator, his understanding is that Boakai won the Presidency with about a margin of 17,000 votes, which he notes is too small to start chasing after people, if he wants peace and stability in the country.

McGill who also chairs the CDC Legislative Caucus, said some of the officials have not even spent about 30 days in office to understand government, but they are making statements he describes as funny, warning them to behave.

He once served as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs under the administration of former President Weah, but was sanctioned by the United States Treasury along with several former officials for significant public corruption.

He was one of the officials of the Weah administration that was highly criticized for wrongly running the affairs of the former government.

But the table has turned and McGill now a senator, is expressing disappointment in the new administration.
