-Deputy Speaker Distances Himself From Missing Billions
As the rigmarole over the mysterious disappearance of LRD16 billions intensifies, prominent politicians are now distancing themselves from such damaging issue in the country.
Since the news of the alleged disappearance of the money came out, many individuals have been allegedly pointing accusing fingers at high ranking former and present government officials.
But speaking recently as part of distancing himself from such insinuations, Deputy House Speaker Prince Moye described as “erroneous” amid speculation that he knows something about the missing LRD16 billion Liberian Dollars.
According to GNN Liberia, some citizens and residents in Bong county, the home of the Deputy Speaker have been calling on him to recuse himself amid speculation that his name was specified in one of the editions of the Hot Pepper Newspaper as one of the suspects of the money saga.
The online news outlet said Deputy Speaker Moye said those accusing him about the missing dollars are detractors, adding “that their fight can never bring me down.”
Representative Moye alleged that those calling for his recusal from the Deputy Speakership are pay agents that want to spoil his character to the Liberian people.
He stated that he has over the past built his character and in no way that his name will be mentioned in such scandal.
According to him, he is currently thinking about a strategic plan that will better improve the living conditions of Bong County citizens and Liberians; noting that he does not know anything about the missing money.
Even though the government has requested the assistance of the United States Treasury Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the International Monetary Fund to help probe the inflow of money into the country in 2016, but the Bong County District two Representative has urged the government to invite Jesus Christ, something he believes will make the team of Investigators to Clearly understand the facts about the missing money.
“Only Jesus Christ we need to call to look in to this matter now because nothing we can do especially when we have been accused by paid agents to spoil our Characters,” Moye adds.
