Republication: Liberia’s 1986 Constitution Supports Dual Citizenship, but How an Entire Country Got it Wrong?.

“Today as the result of the challenges of the dual citizenship complication, the United States has abandoned any effort aimed at wrestling dual citizenship and now in plain terms on the State Department’s traveler advisory website acknowledging that the United States recognizes dual citizenship.

If the United States which is so powerful, rich, and sophisticated cannot get their hands around the complexity and complications of dual citizenship and called it hands-off, how can Liberia get its hands around it?”

Social Media Group, Liberian Electorial Colllege (LEC) Desribes Legislature’s Action, Overreach

“Our total disagreement and concern is with the overreach of this bill which in effect disenfranchises these individuals from exercising their political choice. It would seem by doing so would be penalizing them for having rendered invaluable services to the country. We are all aware of the role played by the bank in the negotiations and the arduous work done by it toward meeting the benchmarks that were required by the IMF and World Bank for external debt relief. We are also aware of the bank’s continuing astute management over the financial system of Liberia in adopting sound policies for the growth and expansion of the economy. We are cognizant of the low savings rate and depth of non-performing loans which have been some of the major challenges facing the banking system. The bank’s role in channeling loanable funds to underserved segments of the population should be embraced and further harnessed”.

Pres Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is a Dual Citizen President: Why the Superficial Dual Citizenship Debate?

“But in the midst of this superficial debate, with antagonists preying on nationalism, sentiments, biases, and outright insinuations steeped in personal opinions and on the other hand, proponents gowned in innocent na├»vety, trying to solve a problem which does not exist with a self-manufactured problem. Consequently, both sides are blind-sided with the reality that the current President, Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Africa’s first democratically elected female President is herself a dual citizen with both Liberian and German citizenships. With a dual citizen President in the Executive Mansion on Capitol Hill, why the superficial debate dual citizenship is all about and efforts to deny other Liberians who have acquired citizenships of other countries their native Liberian citizenship?”

A Republication: The Liberia 1986 Constitution Supports Dual Citizenship, but How an Entire Country Got it Wrong?

“Today as the result of the challenges of the dual citizenship complication, the United States has abandoned any effort aimed at wrestling dual citizenship and now in plain terms on the State Department’s traveler advisory website acknowledging that the United States recognizes dual citizenship.

If the United States which is so powerful, rich, and sophisticated cannot get their hands around the complexity and complications of dual citizenship and called it hands-off, how can Liberia get its hands around it?

Ghana, Benin, Burkina Faso, Togo, Nigeria, Namibia, among others, all have a dual citizenship provision in their constitutions as Liberia does but what is different is these countries re-enforce theirs and do not use it as a wedge against their own people for selfish ends.
