The ruling Coalition for Democratic Change accuses two opposition parties here, Liberty Party and the former governing Unity Party of having knowledge of the mission 16 Billion Liberian banknotes.
Coalition Chairman Mulbah Morlu claims the opposition Liberty Party bought 30 brand new vehicles for campaign purposes during the 2017 elections, wondering where the money came from.
According to Chairman Morlu the LP acquired those pickups just at about the time the new banknotes were printed.He explains the money was printed when President George Weah had not won the presidency.
He calls on the special presidential investigative team probing the missing moneys allegation to invite the Liberty Party for questioning to establish sources of income which enable the LP to have bought fleet of brand new vehicles for the campaign.
Morlu further claims the Liberty Party brought the vehicles into the country just at about the same time the missing 16 billions were printed and brought to Liberia.
The CDC Chairman made the allegation when 300 citizens of Nimba County, including Superintendent Dorr Cooper declared membership for the ruling party.
Political observers from the county say those cross over to the CDC are doing so mainly to secure their jobs.Some of them, including chiefs led by the Head of the Nimba County Traditional Council Peter Barloun say they joined the CDC to prevail on the ruling party to maintain the peace process in the country.
