By: Washington Tumay Watson –email@example.com
MONROVIA – This paper is based on a MONROVIA -Fresh report. It speaks about the declining health of Professor Jones Dopoe, a Liberian folktale singer.
Mr. Dopoe, a man famous for his song, ‘Cassava Leave’ is said to be currently living in a very appalling condition at his Duport Road residence in Paynesville, near the country’s capital, Monrovia.
According to the report, the former Liberian professor can barely have a daily meal as he ages beyond God’s approved grace period of the professed three scores and ten or seventy years.
Concerned Liberians who phoned into a local radio station early Monday (Jan.23, 2023) near Monrovia called on Liberians, in general, to go to the aid of the resourceful Liberian who is said to be losing grips with man’s greatest and unseen enemy, death as a result of worsening conditions both health wise and financially.
Liberians calling in on the Truth Breakfast Show (TBS), said that it was about time that Liberians, both at home as well as abroad, care for the sick Liberian folklore and a professor to restore his dignity.
They reminded Liberians, humanitarians, and well-wishers to see the reason in paying the well-known musician goodwill by quickly intervening in his circumstances.
It is reported that the Liberian educator is ill and his family wants to take him home to Nimba County. However, they cannot afford the transportation cost as he has difficulty getting food.
The concerned Liberians are also asking for the maintenance of the Nimba County hitman because history and society are not being fair to his wealth-wise.
According to the information through a local radio station Truth FM , Professor Dopoe is aging and not economically potent to upkeep him in Montserrado County where he has been residing for so many years contributing greatly to the educational sector of the country.
Concern Liberians on Monday, January 23, 2023 called on the media and the government of Liberia to take the lead in rescuing the human resource contributor to the government over the years at the University of Liberia and other higher institutions of learning.
They also urged the Administration of the University of Liberia and lovers of his music to initiate the raising of some funding for the upkeep of such a great statesman who according to them gave his life for the young people of Liberia.
According to the information the professor’s deplorable living situation has led him and his family to now decide to return home in Nimba County. He needs financial aid.
The Family of Professor Dopoe is seeking needy support from humanitarian organizations, the student community, the religious community, the youths, the musician union, and lovers of his songs to come to assistance that will be able to take him to Nimba his place of birth.
If the government and those humanitarians do go to the call by the aging professor for support, he will be taken to Nimba County to be there for the rest of his life.
Information about the current condition of professor Dopoe revealed that his economic situation is seriously compromised, and that insecurity in his home is one of the contributing factors to the SOS call.
