Former Deputy Minister of Information and critic of the Weah administration, Eugene Fahngon, has stated his support for Amb. Joseph Boakai presidential candidacy.
His statement comes at a time when some sectors of the country yearn for a united opposition bloc to defeat President Weah in the subsequent elections.
Fahngon, who was fired in 2021 by President Weah on charges of lying is convinced that Amb. Boakai is the most capable of meeting the expectations of the people of Liberia.
The Unity Party has confirmed the information while commending the former deputy minister for the decision.
“ Congratulations, Eugene. Welcome on board the rescue train” _UP rejoices in a statement.
While serving in government, Fahgon remained defensive of the Weah’s administration on policy issues until his dismissal in 2021 for spreading falsehood regarding the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
