President Weah, VP Taylor At Loggerheads
…Jewel Admits Beef And Apologized
Following series of mounting rumors and ‘Hear Say’ of ‘bad blood’ between President George Manneh Weah and his Vice President, Jewel Howard-Taylor, the Liberian Vice President has finally admitted to a rough relationship between both of them and she has rendered an apology to the President.
Speaking live on a local radio station, the Truth FM recently, disclosed that her constant travels without informing the President contributed to some misunderstanding between her and her boss, but said the situation has been resolved.
She, however, said, as Vice President, she’s the face of women on the continent, especially since Madam Ellen Johnson -Sirleaf left power and would therefore; have to make representations on their behalf.
VP Taylor’s National Patriotic Party (NPP) joined the Liberia Peoples Democratic Party (LPDP) to form a coalition with Weah’s Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) in 2016 for the purpose of winning the 2017 presidential elections.
Since their ascendancy to power, members of the NPP have complained of marginalization by the coalition government, saying they are not being prioritized in appointments into government.
