A stalwart of the opposition Unity Party has warned of serious financial consequence if some partisans fail to turn over the party’s assets in their possession.
Rep. Hanson Kiazolu
Representative Hanson Kiazolu expressed fear that if the assets are not turned over, the former ruling party could experience huge financial breakdown especially ahead of the impending senatorial bi-election.
Addressing a news conference at his capitol building office, Representative Kiazolu named mainly vehicles used for the 2017 elections as key assets in the possession of some officials of the Unity party.
According to the Montserrado district seventeen lawmaker, the party does not have extra funding for the purchase of new vehicles.
He said if the vehicles are returned, the party could save funding to address rental and other financial obligations.
Representative Kiazolu said the retrieval of the party’s assets will help it recover especially ahead of the impending bi-election election for which it will need vehicles for campaign purposes.
He put the cost of the party’s vehicles still out with some members at more one million United States dollars, said amount he noted is substantial to help the institution effectively function.
Kiazolu wants UP partisans to demonstrate sincerity to the party by turning over assets in their possession.
The lawmaker at the same time appealed to officials having issues with the party to seek amicable way of resolving them instead of using other approaches that could bring the party down. Source: Eldred Thomas
