-Former Lawmaker Brown Says More Noise To Follow; As Weah Believes To Run A Party & Not A Country That Requires Inclusiveness; While Neuville Views Govt’s Utterance As Turning Deprived Into “Suicide Bombers”

Former Grand Bassa County’s Lawmaker Baron Brown is expressing that there is more noise to be made as long as President George M. Weah believes that he is still running a political party and not a nation.

Brown also emphasizes that a dangerous virus that is rapidly destroying the fabrics of the country through the regime known as marginalization which continues to spread, ranging from if you are not members of the Congress for Democracy Change (CDC), there is no space for you; if you are not a stewards, there is no time for you to earn a job in the current government and moreover if you are not in the photo, forget about being included in the system.

A local radio station in Monrovia recently quoted the former Lawmaker that this type of leadership style is totally inimical to the process of inclusive governance which is a troubling omen, adding that this country belongs to all Liberians, an all those who are qualified, it is incumbent on the leadership to ensure jobs for such citizens irrespective of being a partisan.

Brown noted that all don’t have to be CDC’s partisans to obtain a job in the government instead one a person is qualified, dedicated and committed to taking the country to another advance level, the opportunity should be afforded such citizen to contribute his or her quota and not denied for not being a partisan or a southeastern.

Also advancing his concern about edging of citizens, the head of a human right entity, Mr. Rufus Neuville noted that the government’s failure to unite the people upon winning, and being the biggest elephant in the roomis turning the outcasts into what he referred to ‘suicide bombers’ who could be set to bring the government to full attention regarding their national responsibility.

Neuville told a local radio station in Monrovia recently that upon capturing the highest seat in the country it becomes the sole responsibility of the government to reconcile the people in one accord for the common good of the country rather than unleashing utterance of divide and rule concept no in the supreme interest of harmony, peace, unity, security and national stability.

Neuville, a former CDC member and a former lawmaker cited a scenario herein the winner and now the President, Dr. George M. Weah declaring that a specific family-the Ureys will never become president or win any elections in the country as long as he is President as gar from achieving peace, unity and reconciliation in the country, but will continue to breed tension, suspicion, non-compliance and stiff resistance as long as the quest to freely exercise political participation is stalled by the power of the day.

He also blamed the leader and some top partisans of the CDC for such statements which are bent on sowing the seeds of discord and dissatisfaction and hampering collective unity.

It can be recalled a staunch Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) Partisan and Representative of River Gee, Mr. Francis Young has noted that President George M. Weah’s failure to manage and keep the southeast together through meetings could lead to the collapse of his administration.

Rep. Young observes that in the era of late President Samuel K. Doe, he (Doe) as leader, kept the southeast together and intact through series of meetings, pathetically.  Weah who hails from the southeast has not undertaken such praiseworthy venture despite the Senate Pro-Temp, Speaker including many other lawmakers originating from the southeast; and as his (Weah’s) leadership seems not to be listening to the many cries of the people; and if he does not know where he (Weah) is coming from, then it is troubling, adding that the people of River Gee told him to get their message across.

A local radio station in Monrovia reported on October 22, 2019 that Rep. Young also noted that River Gee will not be used as a political pawn and a vote digging mine that voted immensely for the CDC in the 2017 presidential election.  Unlike Doe, Weah is too far from cohesively identifying with the southeast.

At the same time, the River Gee’s lawmaker touched on the payroll issue in the county and stressed that the party will come and party will go, and if the President does not resolve the ongoing salary obstacle, then the people of River Gee will understand.

According to him, he will ensure that Minister of Internal Affairs, Mr. Varney Sirleaf be summoned to appear before the Legislature to comment on the fate or reasons behind the payroll saga.

However, many callers on several radio stations’ talk shows in Monrovia in constant support and defense of the Weah’s leadership have time after time emphasized that one of the important credits Weah has  is being a listening President which no one  can challenged or de   denied. TNR
