A Promise Betrayed – “The Light” is in Free Fall 

  By Martin K. N. Kollie   When Abraham Darius Dillon chose to ride a US$40,000 car as a public official, “The Light” got dimmed. When ADD admitted that he took money from corrupt Albert Chie to finance his senatorial campaign, “The Light” got dimmer. When he sacrilegiously defended Musa Bility’s loot, “The Light” got blurred. When ADD lied about not flying business class, “The Light” became more blurred. The receipt of 30k, without any remorse for competing national priorities and public interest amid COVID-19 pandemic, has placed “The Light”…

Liberty Senator Dillon’s Diminishing Integrity, Dwindling Morale, As He is Caught Pants Down!

    By Ekena Wesley Nearly 19 months ago when we sought to equate Senator Abraham Darius Dillon to some of the finest advocates in the pursuit of social justice the world over, our commentary was greeted with outright mixed feelings. We went neck-to-neck with a childhood friend and comrade who had vehemently disagreed with our candid perspectives. In was an exchange not necessarily aimed at defending Darius Dillon, but one which had pigeon-holed the Montserrado Senator in a sphere never heard of in the history of the Liberian Senate,…

Light and Darkness cannot Cohabitate – Ten Contradictions and why Sen. Abe Darius Dillon should return his 15k 

  By Martin K. N. Kollie  Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon and pro-ADD apologists are asking, “Why should ADD return his 15k?” It is a form of mockery for ADD to even post on his Facebook page “Return it Vs. Don’t return it”. Since a few of you are asking “Why should ADD return it”, here are reasons:  Senator Dillon said he was only going to accept a salary in full sum of only US$5,000. This was what he said in August 2019, “Any amount over $5,000 will be…

Abraham Dillion Understanding of Liberian History Is Shallowed!

Hassan Bility & Andrew Jaye To think that social eruption can be manufactured for political capital is the very height of ignorance to demonstrate. The social eruption of April 14, 1979, has been propagandized by the right-wing and the remnants of the True Wing party to terrify our people, a dangerous game into which Abraham Darius dillion is playing. Hence Mathews and others could not have called the people on the streets if their objective conditions (poverty, exclusion, hunger, and so forth) were not visible and practical. But it is…

For a little over a month since being elected and installed Senator of Montserrado County, critics of Dillon have chastised him for failing to live up to a campaign promise he made to make his salary and benefits public. Until Tuesday, September 24, Sen. Dillon had always claimed of not being informed about his entitlements as Senator. Op-ed 

To Senator Abraham Dillion of Montserrado County: Our people are not ignorant!

  By Andrew Jaye Jr   Dillion, Regarding your half-baked analysis to Mr. Samuel Jackson on the historical accuracy of the Rice Uprising, which you dupped as “Rice Riot” to smartly dent the character of the Progressive forces, is far–fetched from the truism of April 14, 1979. But more brazenly, and disappointing is the fact: that it is men like you to whom history must be explained. Mr. Dillon were you to muster the courage and discipline yourself by reading thoroughly the Liberian scholarships on April 14, 1979, you would…

CoP also referred to the intervention of Liberia’s international partners at this 11th hour as “an intrusion” into the internal affairs of the state. “We do not object to intervention or intrusion, as much as we feel they are getting too much involved in our domestic affairs — that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But we hope that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to the US$25 million [infusion]; that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to other bread-and-butter issues like the L$16 billion; that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to the attacks on Honorable Yekeh Kolubah, Senator Dillon, or Henry Costa or Mo Ali…” Op-ed 

My TAKE on Liberty Party, CPP and CoP integrity saga: Hypocrisy at the highest level!

By Abraham Doedeh Even though Senator Abraham Dillon has apologized, let me state again for the record, Mr. Dillon’s statement of using biblical scriptures to [justify corruption] is untimely and ill-thought but whatever way you put or justify it, it is FLAT out wrong to defend a bad character and actor like Musa Bility, who has a consistent history of criminal record nationally and internationally. Here’s my problem with the Dillon power play; prior to the convention Mr. Dillon had the singular most sacred responsibility to bring Kla Edward Toomey…

Liberia: Dual Citizenship Debate – a Moral and Ethical Dilemma

    By Rev. Dr. Samuel E. Vansiea Liberia was founded as a Dual Citizenship nation. In the early 1800s almost all of Africa was colonized except the land now called Liberia. The natives traded with Europeans but did not allow them to own land. They, however, agreed to share land with Negro settlers from the United States of America in the spirit of Negro solidarity. It was through the political genius of the settlers that Liberia became a sovereign state in 1847. According to The American Journal of International…
