We believe with will and courage that, the current committee set up by Mr George Weah to probe causes of the gasoline shortage, which has submerged the country into a blistering crisis--crippling every aspect of livelihood for citizens totally lacks the quantum of integrity and moral rectitude required to independently probe this matter to any logical and forthright conclusion. Therefore, it must be unconditionally squashed and decommissioned to make way for a  rather sound and independent committee. Op-ed 

One People Revolutionary Movement to speak on national issues

  Press Release (13, Feb. 2020)– Fellow-citizens, we extend revolutionary greetings and solidarity during this unbearable, unwarranted and unjustified gasoline crisis painstakingly encumbering livelihood in our homeland.

Henceforth, we would like to plainly state for the record that given the revealing, striking and scaring…

Why are a monopoly, corruption, and undue government interference and control, and regulation always a subculture in Liberia and amongst Liberian officials at all levels?  Why do those who are frequently entrusted with state power in Liberia lack natural patriotism to their own people and country?  These questions are serious, especially so when Liberia faces a nexus of problems that manifest themselves as slow economic growth, high unemployment, social strife, and excruciating marginal poverty.

This year’s 2020 midterm looks promising for us because we are sure we will win the seat.” The aspirant said he frowned on the exorbitant paychecks of Liberian legislators, especially with a population fewer than 5million inhabitants, adding “it beats my imagination to discover that lawmakers are earning so much money in the country when, we do not have the economic muscles to shoulder the cost, and when poverty is so widespread. This is why I am willing to settle for a pay cut of $3,000 as a Senator for Grand Bassa County. That would be 4000 dollars less than what current lawmakers are taking home. After harmonizing their salaries, the Liberian senator makes about 8000 united states dollars. My quest to be a Senator is not to enrich myself. What is counted is my service to my country.” News

Liberians must brace themselves for the future. With Sirleaf protection still in play[ellen Sirleaf demanded protection for she and her cronies and family before she left power, it is rumored she paid off Weah and thus her PROTECTON], Morlu's remarks that if the CDC loses POWER it's partisans and Mr. Weah won't be protected, is also a cause for concerns. The Controversial CDC Chairman made those remarks during the bring back our money campaign. His utterances say even if Weah left power today he might seek protection or Sirleaf post-transition or Presidency arrangements, that now sees her absolved of all crimes or prosecution for PROTECTION. What we have on our hands, is a party---THE CONGRESS FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE, that may not want to leave POWER volunteeringly---and is refusing all attempts to reform the election Commission for an even playing field.

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
