UP Partisan Defends Weah’s Administration
-Takes Issue With Sen. Johnson
A zealous partisan of former ruling Unity Party (UP) Whroway Bryant, has sharply reacted to Bomi County Senator, Sando D. Johnson over comments attributed to the senator.
Addressing a press conference Saturday in Monrovia, Bryant said “it’s saddening and bewildered with extreme concern about the recent allegation attributed to Hon. Sando Johnson, Senator of Bomi County; alleging that the Executive Branch headed by the President George M. Weah stole the alleged missing 16 billion”. Although Bryant’s partisans are amongst those who have accused the Weah administration of reportedly stealing the alleged L$16 billion, he described as “act of reckless outburst” on the part of the senator.
According to Bryant, the Bomi County Lawmaker blindly accused the Minister of Finance Samuel D. Tweh;State for Presidential Affairs Minister, Nathaniel F. Mcgill and the Mayor of Monrovia, Jefferson T. Koijee that they were the “Vampires looting our state coffers”.
“The sham in Sando Johnson also alleged that the three aforementioned government officials along with the President of Liberia are “using the stolen 16 billion to build properties for themselves”.
Bryant asserted that the Sen. Johnson is well known for making unsubstantiated claim against prominent individuals in society. “We as conscious thinkers and patriots detest such reckless misuse of the freedom of speech and wish to use this medium to call to order this loud mouth lawmaker, Sando Johnson.”
“It’s frustrating, least to mention our disappointment that people like Hon Sando Johnson will trade into baseless accusation without facts thus, injuring and inciting the public against the presidency and his cabinet ministers. As a country and people, we can’t afford to reverse neither the developmental trajectory nor the gains made thus far under the leadership of President Weah.”
“As a youth Leader and sitting Vice-chair of the Unity Party Youth Congress, I want to call on the Government of Liberia through the House of Senate to quickly intervene in bringing one of their colleagues who is bringing that honorable body to public disrepute to check in order to save the sanity of that honorable house. We admonish the leadership of the Senate to cite Hon. Johnson to provide evidence to his callous allegation against the Executive Branch of Government and the office of the Presidency.”
