Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! News

    After weeks of declaration of intent for senator in one of the most “underrepresented and developed” counties, Gbarpolu, citizens of this part of Liberia have started celebrating the desire of Dr. Alaric Topka to context for the position.

Disclosing to the public the disbursement of funds at the Liberian Senate, declaring his assets, subject himself to double pay cut, influencing fellow Senators in debates and votes on critical national issues at the Liberian Senate such as the rejection of NEC Chairman nominee Nwabudike, interventions in distressing conditions of poor people are only a few examples of his leadership, faithfulness, and vision. I urge all well-meaning Liberians as well as CDCians to reject the negative propaganda scheme launched against Senator Dillon by the corrupt Weah CDC government and their surrogates. Public Policy

A petition Expel Senator Albert Chie from the Liberian Senate

  The Editor, Upon the induction of Senator Abraham Darius Dillon who later pledged to take home at most 5,000 USD as salary and send any excess toward other social development purposes as well as declaring his assets, Senator Albert Chie responded with very disturbing threats. Historically, Senator Dillon’s actions are unprecedented in contemporary Liberian Politics. Here are Albert Chie’s exact comments; “This is a political house. Here we do politics. You were elected by the people of Montserrado but from today’s date, you belong to the Liberian Senate. The…

By James Nan Larsah, Jr. I am a longstanding member of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), one of means, standing, and record, and I have a clear understanding of the propaganda scheme orchestrated against Senator Abe Darius Dillon by mainly elements of the corrupt ruling establishment in Liberia over the Senator’s exposure of funds disbursement at the Liberian Senate. While I remain a member of the CDC, I refuse, reject, and vehemently denounce any notion of a CDCian as one whose loyalty to the party and party leaders is…

Liberian Senate Wants Forensic Audit For Collapsed Nocal

Monrovia (AFP) – Liberia’s Senate ordered Wednesday a “forensic” audit of the bankrupt state oil company and vowed to punish anyone found to have negligently handled its finances. The National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) laid off its entire staff — including the board — in August as falling oil prices hitting the sector hard. NOCAL said it could no longer afford the “administrative and operational bills” for managers and low-level workers alike, and would later rehire for a downsized operation. Some 200 people lost their jobs, a source at…

Senator George Weah what will you do on Capitol Hill?

The Editor, No one is surprised that Senator elect, George Weah won massively in Monrovia and especially Montserrado County: With huge youthful populations in Soniewehn, PHP, West Point, Claratown, New Krutown and the densely populated Bushrod Island, his election was a shoe in! See National Election [NEC] results for 2005, 2011, 2014, in which the CDC took Montserrado! The last I checked, these were the same folks who elected puny officeholders like Reps Edwin Snowe, Edward Forh and Alomiza Ennos, and MANY of our underachieving legislators. But the questions is:…
