Bong county Senator Henry Willie Yallah has described two Civil Society Organization (CSO) actors as enemies of development, saying their request for government to block a County Sitting resolution would hold development hostage.
He was recently reacting to a petition filed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs by Mr. Aaron Juakollie of the Foundation for International Dignity and Jesse B. Cole of the Justice and Peace Commission.
The two CSO actors filed their petition to the government after Bong County’s controversial County Council Sitting this year.
According to them, the Budget Law of Liberia requires the election of three members of the Project Management Committee (PMC) once every three years, comprising a chairperson, a treasure and a comptroller.
But they claimed that it was not in the case of Mr. Abraham Jutomue Kollie’s ascendency to the position of comptroller.
The CSO actors described the process as a total violation of Section 9 (III) of the Budget Law of Liberia by selecting and appointing Mr. Kollie as comptroller.
They therefore requested the Ministry of Internal Affairs’ timely intervention, or they would be compelled to take the matter to court to challenge Kollie’s appointment.
But responding to the CSOs’ comments, Sen. Yallah says they are enemies of development because their petition would hold the County’s development hostage.
Sen. Yallah describes the two petitioners as wicked and awful to development of the county, evidenced by their recent action to place the county development in limbo.
He accuses Mr. Cole and Mr. Juakollie of being a constant hobbit of allegedly inciting citizens of the county to go at loggerhead with their leaders under the pretense of advocating for the common people or the voiceless.
