Bishop Sees ‘Virus Of Embarrassment’ In Findley’s Deserters
By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent
BUCHANAN, March 31 (LINA) – A prelate has said those who benefitted from ex-Senator Gbehzohngar Findley and later deserted him must strive to overcome the “virus of embarrassment” by openly recognizing his invaluable services to both the county and country.
“You have the virus in you that has no medical cure, I want to let you know that your conscience is now clear, you can now feel free to be with Gbehzohngar as before, because I know most of you had lived with embarrassment,” he told a pro-Findley gathering at the weekend.
Bishop Matthew Gueh of the Evangelic Church of Liberia made the comments in Buchanan when he served as guest preacher at a program in honor of the former senator organized by citizens of the county.
Findley, believed to be a popular choice, lost his seat in the December 20 mid-term election and along with it his post as President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate.
From his sermon theme: “Where Are The Others”, Gueh asked: “Where are the others who benefitted from Findley when he was senator, where are the marketers, where are the students, where are the elders, where are the chiefs, where are you?”
He challenged the people of Grand Bassa County, who benefitted immensely from former Senator Findley to come out as those who organized the honoring program to cure themselves of the “virus” that had eaten them up since the end of the mid-term election.
Bishop Gueh then urged Findley to forget about what happened during the election and embrace his people with open arms.
