Liberia's President Weah Cuts His Own Salary By 25%

Liberia's newly sworn-in President George Weah pledged to cut his own salary by a quarter on Monday, in a nationwide address in which he warned of tough times ahead for a "broke" country.




The state of the economy that my administration inherited leaves a lot to do and to be decided," the former international soccer star said in an address apparently aimed at lowering high expectations following his election victory at the end of last year to replace Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.


Our economy is broken; our government is broke. Our currency is in free fall; inflation is rising. Unemployment is at an unprecedented high and our foreign reserves are at an all-time low".


In view of the very rapidly deteriorating situation of the economy, I am informing you today, with immediate effect, that I will reduce my salary and benefits by 25 percent," Weah said, pledging the savings to a development fund for Liberia.

    2. "Salary and benefits" in naija context "allowances"

      Naija politicians will never allow a fly perch close to their allowance.

  2. I always knew that Sirleaf Johnson was a disaster. She practically ran the country off the cliff. Still can't understand why Rochas has her statue in Imo state. She was a complete failure just like our desert demon Buhari.
