There have been a variety of responses to a statement made by Frank Saah Foko, district nine of Montserrado County.
Foko participated (32 mins:18 seconds) in the Montserrado County District #9 primary of the CDC.
After he was announced (32 mins:18 seconds) winner of the process, he made remarks appreciating the support he received from delegates.
After the statement of appreciation, a social media blog posted, “CDC Lawmaker Frank Saah Foko has confirmed that President Weah will be a one-term president.
Speaking to his supporters, he openly said that he would form a strategic Team to ensure President Weah becomes a one-term President. Fellow Liberian, what do you say about this comment from the CDC Lawmaker?”
TSM conducted a careful analysis of the audio and video recordings to determine what was said. We also contacted Representative Foko via WhatsApp to establish what he said.
Foko said he intended to say, “I will make sure that President Weah is not a one-term President.” He questioned why someone would just collect a segment of what he said.
FrontPage Africa also screamed live (32 mins:18 seconds) the event.
Conclusion: CDC Lawmaker Foko indeed said those words; but in a telephone conversation; the lawmaker said he intended to say, “I will make sure that President Weah is not a one-term President.”
