what is degree without self discipline and maturity,
now that he has acquired degree as he claim, that could have put him at the front seat of his party but instead betrayed his loyalist by accepting bribe from Winston Tubman,who he think is capable for job.
I don't think Weah,really acquired this knowledge of sound education if he did, he would not have sold his birth right to another man for money or he might just be an educated fool as well.
Leadership is not by how many degree one possesses, it is simply a gift from God follow by wisdom.
That is not your area,find another area.

Opong needs to revisit his life and accept himself for who he is. He should be happy that God gave him a talent for which the Liberians loved him. How can he earn a degree when he is not a proven high school graduate? Let him stop fulling our children with his unstabled mind, one day, president another day Vice. He needs to start from somewhere. Wait, and you can apply for an office assistant job provided you can write a convincing letter of application. You Greedy Emotional Man.

George Weah, you have not arrived in your proper position yet. You still have to go 5 steps behind. A president? No. A VP No, A Senator? NO. What's about Representative? No!! what are you going to tell the nation concerning the people to be represented when you don't even know the constitution and the function of the house? My Dear brother, just wait for an office assistant job like others said or else, go back on the football field. No matter what, you will never be a president because you were not willing to prepare yourself. So forget about politics and stop creating heart failure for yourself.

I am yet to understand why a university at this computer age will admitt a George Weah who is yet to obtain high school education. Can I ask the admission office of Devry university what are the requirements for entry in your university. If high school credentitials are part of the requirements than please revoke soccer legend GEORGE OPPONG MANNEH WEAH degree because he is really a mess.

Please revoke this hurry hurry degree to gain your credibility.
