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…

Better Money Management Not More Money Printing–Dr. Tipoteh Takes Issue With IMF

By Dr. Togbah-Na Tipoteh Having served as Chairman of the African Group of Governors of the World Bank (WB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), I am aware of the principal objective of these biggest global financial institutions. While the Marshall Plan focused on the rehabilitation of post World War Two Western Europe, these Bretton Woods Entities focused on providing assistance funds globally, especially for the developing countries, who constitute the majority of the membership of these Institutions, but the majority of the shareholders remains in the hands of the…

By the way, how can we be so sure that the passports in question are not far more than 4,250 pieces considering the profundity of greed, and the unparalleled quest for material wealth and opulence which have possessed the souls of the folks ruling over our homeland? The desperation for bloody overnight wealth being exhibited by George Weah and his bunch compels to none. The guys are so obsessed with material wealth that the reputation and sanctity of the country no longer matter to them. Unimpeachable sources have hinted that the passports sold out to foreign crooks are more than what has been announced to the public. That the 4,250 is a massaged number. Liberia is plunged into a serious quagmire and may require powerful intervention to save the nation from the peril of extinction. What a debauched era in our history we shall never forget. Op-ed 

The Passport Racket —How Liberia’s Image Been Ravaged By Its Own Governors

    The Editor, The phrase “SIGNIFICANT CORRUPTION” as stated by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo—illustrating and characterizing the enormity of theft and graft associated with the Liberian passport racket, now trending on global cable news, is no doubt a ‘weighty declaration’ that must never be taken lightly. Anyone taking this lightly might be under the influence of strong and harmful substances.

Moye of eating US$508,000 from the account of the Cuttington University.

Cuttington University, a private University located in Suakoko,…

And Why Is the Legislature Mute Over The Passport Saga?

  Robert Moncio Kpadeh The current passport scandal has grave national security implications. It is disgraceful, to state the least. It tarnishes our country’s already checkered image— in no small way. It is now making headline rounds on international news. It has brought the entire nation and all that it beholds to utter disrepute. It poses an existential threat to regional and international security. Trouble is afoot in the land. In the face of this national quagmire and disdain brought upon the nation by the Executive and its corrupt agents,…

Given this position of the LNBA, our presence here today is not an approval of the reason for which we were cited, for the Constitution does not require such. We are here because the failure of a lawyer to appear and perform any service required by the Court is contemptuous. Personally, I should be in a joyous mood and celebrating for the elevation of Justice Kaba, as my former student during his undergraduate studies at the University of Liberia in the 1980s. But, I cannot because another former student of mine, Justice Ja’neh was removed unconstitutionally. Officially, as president of the LNBA, I cannot celebrate because to do so will be contrary to the official position of the LNBA. Public Policy

Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe said, because the   Anti-Corruption Commission Chairperson Nbudusi Nwabudike, himself a lawyer allegedly obtained his Liberian citizenship and so, any conference organized by Nwabudike is a product of corruption, fraud, deception, and misrepresentation.

Alternative National Congress—ANC, must grow balls & call out Mouna Farhat, now!

A lot of Liberians see Mouna through the lens of ANC and we must unconditionally disassociate the party from the nonsense she wrote. I find it appalling that the post…

Altogether it cost 3.4 billion Kenyan shillings - that is, $35 million, or £26 million. At 10km long, that works out to around $3 million per kilometre. To put it in perspective, the BBC's Ferdinand Omondi in Nairobi notes that this is more than double the amount of money the Kenyan government has put aside for its strategic food reserves this year. It is also about a million dollars more than it is spending on universal healthcare, and three times the amount it has set aside for affordable housing. Story was first publish in 2019, March.
