In the wake of economic challenges in Liberia, the Inspector General of the Liberia National Police (LNP), Patrick Sudue demands the public particularly would-be ‘money exchangers’ to be patriotic and think about the nation and its people.
Col. Sudue asserted that Liberia’s economy is under threat, therefore, everyone must work together ensuring that they revamp the economy.
He lamented that the country is at a cross-road due to the current economic status, therefore; it requires the collective efforts of all Liberians.
The Police Inspector General claimed that ‘money exchangers’ are the driven force behind the economy condition of the rate on grounds that the rate is being ruled by market people.
According to Sudue, if Liberia thus fall apart, it is not President George Weah, but rather citizens themselves have failed noting “so let’s forget about party line and think about Liberia.”
The Police IG appealed to Liberians not to infused counterfeit banknotes into the market saying “we as Liberians we are good at tearing apart one another; this is not the time for us to tear apart one another.”
Meanwhile, Col. Sudue has warned those in the foreign exchange business to adhere to all regulations put forth by the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) as the LNP is working along with the central bank to ensure that these regulations are adhere to as he calls on the public to help protect the Liberian economy.
He however, appealed to the public and ‘money exchangers’ to inform the police whenever there is an incident of counterfeiting in any part of the country.
