Liberia’s Deputy Minister for Fiscal Affairs at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP), has warned that Liberians should expose would be elections’ disruptors for a betterment of the society.
Speaking at a graduation ceremony Sunday at the Seventh Day Adventist Paynesville Community High School at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Stadium, Minister Samora Wolokolie stated all Liberians and partisans of the Unity Party must denounce the statement made by UP’s Standard Bearer Joseph Boakai.
“Uncle Joe Boakai is now seen leading the threat against the security of the republic. Where are we heading, my people? Ambassador Boakai is observed to be gradually becoming a “War Monger”! Maybe because of his close affiliation with warlords.
We must do all within our means to denounce any form of violence during these elections. Those trying to disrupt these elections must be exposed and named…
It was noticed by my uncle, Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai has joined the de facto ex General Prince Y. Johnson, to militarize the Unity Party,” he said.
In the last few days, the country has witnessed threatening remarks coming from the likes of Senator Prince Y. Johnson, Milton Blayee (General Butt Naked), and Representative Yekeh Y. Kolubah of Montserrado County Electoral District #10.
Wolokolie noted that Liberians know the violent history of these characters. Come what may, elections will come and go, Liberia will remain. He urged Liberians to protect the peace of the country and preach the message of peace.
“It is our collective responsibility as citizens to do so. Liberia will not burn. Let us denounce all forms of violence now and as we approach these elections. We want to assure you that the government of Liberia, under the leadership of President George Manneh Weah, will protect the territorial borders of this republic as the government remains the custodian of peace and security of our dear patrimony,” he concluded.
