-Rep Saah Joseph Clarifies Issues Surrounding Ebola Fight
By Reuben Sei Waylaun
At long last, Montserrado County electoral district#13 Representative and now Montserrado County senatorial aspirant, Saah Joseph said he didn’t receive pay from government or anyone to fight Ebola in the country.
Responding to allegation from his contender for the Montserrado County senatorial seat, former Montserrado County electoral district#1 Representative Josephine Francis, Saah Jospeh said he didn’t receive pay from the Liberian Government or anyone for his contribution in eradicating the deadly Ebola virus from the country.
According to the Montserrado County electoral district#13 lawmaker, his work was not for glorification, but to aid his country in eradicating the disease from the country.
“The issue about me being paid during the Ebola crisis; The information is false. I was never paid. I challenge anybody to bring document, even the government to give me any document that they gave me money. To ship those ambulances to Liberia, I took loan from the bank and I was asked to pay taxes at the port. Amara Konneh, the then Finance Minister few time apologized to me for that. I used my personal money and benefits to make sure the country is free,” he said.
Earlier Josephine Francis alleged that whosoever that helped in the fight against Ebola was paid to do so and no one should be hailed for that, something that constrained Representative Saah Joseph to call on Okay FM 99.5 on Friday to make clarification.
