‘Inflation In Exchange Rate is Global Issue’
-Says MRTUL Chair
By Anthony Selmah
The National Chairman of the Manor River Transport Union of Liberia (MRTUL), Mr. Augustine Jaryeneh Nagbe has attributed the inflation in the exchange rate in the Country as a serious global issue rather than people blaming the National Government on such issue.Speaking to this paper in an exclusive interview at his residence in Central Monrovia over the week, the MRTUL National Chairman added that other nearby Countries around Liberia are facing the same situation that Liberia is currently going through.
The MRTUL National Chairman Nagbe is however of the view that as a businessman, the solution or way forward is for all Liberians, including them as members of the business community to come together as one, and engage the government constructively on a way that the situation will come under control.
He suggested that in a situation at such where the exchange rate keeps inflating on a daily basis, it does not augur well for people to be seating in the background criticizing the government.
According to him, negative criticisms will in no way help Liberia, as a country waiting to be on par with other countries in the areas of better development.
He reminded Liberians that this is the time for them to rally around the CDC led government headed by President George Manneh Weah to make sure that they can move the development agenda of the country forward.
The National Chairman of the Manor River Transport Union of Liberia further stated that it is too early for people to begin to criticize the government of President Weah.
Chairman Nagbe asserted that the government is still in her embryonic stage, adding that citizens going about criticizing her will in no way help us move this Country forward.
He noted that President Weah who has taken over the country, is a true son of the land and all Liberians need to give their fullest support to his administration, and promote his government’s Pro-Poor agenda.
