Liberia: Koijee Enters Dillon’s Closets of Nepotism & Tricks

Must read

Senator Abraham Darius Dillon apparent hocus pocus approach to politics and handling of national policies and activities appears to hit boiling point as the Secretary General of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change is not letting things go unanswered.

The self-proclaimed champion of transparency and anti-corruption, has been exposed as a walking contradiction, betraying the very principles he once so ardently championed, Jefferson Koijee said in a critique published in several newspapers.

He accuses Dillon of using his influence to place over two dozens of friends and family members into various strategic positions within the Liberian government.

Publish it just as you see it, the Senator told the Oracle News Daily when contacted for comment in relation to Koijee’s accusations.

Dillon, the senator representing Montserrado County, has long positioned himself as a moral crusader, criticizing government’s handling of public resources and vowing to uphold the highest standards of ethics.

However, a closer examination of his actions paints a far different picture, one of blatant disregard for the very laws he claims to uphold, the former Monrovia Mayor alleges.

The senator’s hypocrisy is glaring when it comes to the implementation of the Code of Conduct for government officials and employees. While he once vehemently criticized the nepotistic practices of the previous administration, Dillon has now been caught red-handed violating the same code he so ardently defended.

According to the Code of Conduct, public officials are prohibited from engaging in political activities, using government resources for partisan purposes, or serving on the campaign team of any political party. Yet, Dillon has been seen actively participating in the appointment and confirmation of his allies to various government positions, effectively undermining the very laws he claims to uphold.

The list of Dillon’s contradictions is lengthy and damning as compiled by the National Secretary General of the main opposition CDC.

  1. Mr. Dillon lied about apportioning half of his salary to the people of Montserrado County. How can a man grow extreme fascination in deception at the expense of the People of Montserrado county? In fact, where is the pay cut of US$5,000 per month that he promised?
  2. Under President Weah, Dillon who raised alarm of government wasteful spending on vehicles for high-profile government officials, is now ridding US$180,000 latest Mitsubishi and calls it legitimate money. Isn’t this an utter fakery?
  3. In 2021, Mr. Dillon lied about his flight to the USA that he did not travel via a business class but subsequently informed the public that he shamed his mother and now he travels regularly with business class unannounced. He seems to be unbothered, he is a frequent business class traveler spending over US$5-6 thousands per fight. The fact that Dillon can’t account for over US$240,000 he owes the people of Montserrado-he still shames his innocent mother and the people of Montserrado. Sorry mom, your son is a burden of deception in our body politics.
  4. Criminally, Dillon has been hooked into a financial scandal and intentional violation of the code of conduct for knowingly declaring fake assets. With respect to the Code of Conduct 10.3 which states that , “Every Public Official and Employee of Government shall declare and affirm that his or her declaration is accurate to the best of his or her knowledge”.  It continues “Any statement in such declaration is known  to be false upon verification shall lead to summary dismissal and other measures provided by law.”

Is Dillon not a violator of this very code of conduct?

  1. A Dillon who contested President Weah’s appointment of young people calling them “unfit” for the job, is known for forwarding the name of his camera boy to serve the Liberian National Fire service. What competence and operational discipline does his staff have and he is yet to tell the public the competence and credential his staff brings to such a high-profile job.
  2. What would Charles Brumskine  say if he were alive watching his darling boy confounding in the misery of deep-pocket lies and influencing the unfit and inexperienced recruitments of government officials in the Boakai led regime and selling out the Liberty party?
  3. A Dillon who deleted his campaign messages ( manifesto)  on social media and verbally attacked concerned citizens of Montserrado county over his criminal behavior for doing so.
  4. Is this not the misogynistic Dillon who in 2021 physically assaulted Mary Williams for simply accusing him of having extramarital affairs with officials in government (mostly females). Where is the moral?
  5. Dillon who should be running the affairs of the people of Montserado county is now a degenerate and product of the ghettos with hundreds of cartel under his control as a so called Senator.
  6. The dangerously corrupt criminal-in-chief currently does not see it wrong for a newly elected President to fly private jet using tax payers money.

Yesterday, President Weah was wrong flying a jet but today Dillon believes that Mr. Boakai is right for using the poor masses resources.

  1. Is Dillon still signing at the Liberian senate at the early morning hours or it was only meant to wrongly impressed his voters or the Liberian People?
  2. Where is Dillon in a period when our economy is ruthlessly bastardized by an eighty-years -old Joseph Boakai?
  3. What a Dillon is even saying about a trip that Mr. Boakai took over thirty government officials to the US misusing over half a million United States Dollars  of the tax payers money.
  4. Under Mr. Boakai, our democracy has become an utter floodgate of incompetence where unfit criminal indictees who were engaged into electoral violence, unfit men and women are smuggled into strategic positions and even ushering a promiscuous and women abuser in a Senegalese national into governance. Was it not Dillon who bitterly chased Mr. Nwabukie as chairman of the National Elections Commission on citizenship! Where is the moral of Dillon?
  5. It is not strange that lying Dillon has a fundamental and historic narrative of conspiring against Samuel  Saye Dokey on December 4, 1997  when he served as special assistant to Cllr. T.C. Gould
  6. A Dillon who received 9,833 USD for a Constituency visit after initially saying in 2019 that, “ Any amount over 5,000 USD will be placed in an escrow account of the county for social development “
  7. A lying Dillon who castigated Hon. Acarous Gray and other lawmakers in 2013 for appropriating unrealistic benefits and allowance to themselves had received the sum of US$15,000 in 2021.
  8. He promised that he will not receive a dime for sitting fees but he received 633,600 LRD for legislative sitting fees at a Farmington retreat. He voted into law a national fiscal budget in 2024 that increase legislative benefits while civil servants salaries are still harmonized. Today, Dillon also received US$10,000 as sitting fees under Mr. Boakai regime for special sitting. something he refused to do during President Weah term.
  9. Senator Dillon promised that he will expose every secret meeting of the Liberian senate given that he was elected by the public, but Dillon is now the quiet and dangerous man ever to grace the senate.
  10. Where is the Asset Recovery today when it is even hooked by corruption leading to the resignation of members of the recovery team—is Dillon not recognizing the fact that the Asset Recovery is a gateway of mass looters and incompetent leaders under the regime of Mr. Boakai?
  11. The last day that the learned counselor, Charles Walker Brumskine was on the face of the earth, he revealed to closed associates around him a lying Dillon and his co-conspirator, Senator Nyounblee were at the verge of plotting to have him ousted from his political party. Today Charles Walker Brumskine  goes to his grave with these harsh memories of lying Dillon.  In the wake of Cllr. Brumskine’s demise, Dillon and Sen. Lawrence have executed criminal scheme against his daughter and sold out the moral and philosophical value of Mr. BRUMSKINE.  Additionally, Dillon is known for insulting Cllr. Brumskine by labelling him as “arrogant” and “selfish,”. Where is Dillon’s Moral?
  12. Part of Dillon’s sheer hypocrisy is that he massively used bikes for his campaign but today he’s celebrating the inhumane treatment of bike riders.
  13. In the heat of COVID 2020 when we decided to give Waterside a facelift, Lying Dillon completely disagreed and threatened me with summon saying “No level of development should stop the people from surging,” but today before watchful eyes marketers are being brutalized and subjected to various treatments while Dillon walks with thousands.
  14. Lying Dillon we are reliably informed has pushed the employment of twenty seven individuals: families, concubines friends and associates of his when several cadres of the UP have got zero opportunities, languishing in the wilderness.
