Liberia: CDC’s Koijee Differs With President -Over Abe Kromah’s Suspension

Must read

Jefferson Koijee, Secretary General of the main opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), has expressed disagreement with President Joseph Boakai’s decision to suspend the Director General of the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA), Abraham Kromah.

Kromah and his deputies were recently involved in violent clashes at the agency’s headquarters in Monrovia. President Boakai condemned their actions as “an unacceptable act of disorder that undermines and threatens peace.”

Koijee claims the President’s suspension of Kromah was “not well thought out.” He suggested that the decision may have been influenced by ruling party Senator Abraham Darius Dillon, who had previously commented on the matter on social media.

“President Boakai is not in charge and must take full control of his mandate to prevent the disruption of the country’s peace,” Koijee said. He accused Senator Dillon of having “peculiar interests” that are not aligned with the national interest.

Koijee also criticized the recent incidents of public disorder within President Boakai’s administration. He attributed these incidents to the President’s “indecisive nature.”

“The public disorder in Boakai’s administration between and amongst agencies and Heads and officials of government is indicative of the President’s indecisive nature,” Koijee said.

Koijee urged President Boakai to demonstrate transparency and accountability in his handling of the situation at the LDEA. He called for a thorough investigation into the incident and appropriate disciplinary measures to be taken.

“The Liberian people deserve a government that upholds the rule of law and maintains peace and order,” Koijee said.

“President Boakai must take decisive action to address this issue and restore public confidence in his administration.”
