GANTA, NIMBA COUNTY, LIBERIA-President George Weah has dispelled speculations that the proposition on tenure of the presidency is intended to open a third term bid for the post.
Speaking Wednesday, December 2, 2020, in Gompa City, Nimba County, President Weah clarified that the proposition to reduce the tenure of the presidency is in good faith and void of any perceived third term bid.
