Since his inauguration on January 22, 2018 as President of Liberia, there have been numerous rumors that the United States of America that is globally considered as Liberia’s trusted ally was not in support of the administration of the former soccer legend and now president of Liberia.

Pundits and critics have repeatedly insinuated that the American people, particularly the president was not in support of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC)’s regime. America is Liberia’s longstanding traditional ally credited for some of the good things being enjoyed.
In his article, President Weah informed the world only super power that his government is drafting legislation to make ministries more effective and efficient in addressing the specific challenges they face.
