Must read

The Opposition Coalition for Democratic Change has threatened it would stage a mass sit-in protest action at all agencies and ministries of government where its supporters will be harassed and dismissed from public service.

CDC Secretary General Jefferson Koijee said Saturday in Monrovia the Boakai administration has planned and is executing a systematic witch-hunt of people it views as member of the opposition. He also trashed Boakai asset recovery initiative, terming it a reckless initiative.

“We welcome the establishment of the war crimes court and the economic crimes court. You have our support on that. We will work with you in consonant. What you term as assets recovery is a reckless arrangement. Not even a chicken that is associated with the CDC will give in,” he said.

Koijee also complained that the authorities are refusing to meet former President Geoirge Weah’s security guards request. Twenty five Executive Protection Service officers is want the next president wants.

Koijee: “Don’t push us. Don’t push us for we have what it takes to make you uncomfortable. Go and do the people’s job. We won’t pretend to you. We don’t seek popularity we are action oriented characters, we will ask the citizens to join us in protecting President Weah.

“And the day we come to protect President Weah, we won’t leave again. We will protect him till the day we feel comfortable that he’s well protected.

“We openly defy you. Mr. Boakai don’t ask for something that you cannot contain so early.  Liberian people have asked you do a job. Focus on that job.

“You have too rights in this country: Boakai has the right to appoint you; we have the right to remove you. We don’t seek permission to remove you.”
