The former Executive Director of the National Investment Commission (NIC) Mr. George Wisner says opposition political parties will hold government’s feet to fire to pressure it to do the right thing that will benefit the citizens.
Mr. Wisner made the statement Monday, 23 July on OK FM.“We want this government to do what is right, no one is against this government, but the living condition of our people is what matters to us,” Mr. Wisner says.
He tells government that the opposition will engage government to put the interest of the people first.“We as opposition institution we acknowledge the government when they do the right thing, but we will not praise sign them for wrongdoing,” he adds.
The former ruling Unity Party (UP) executive says it is time that the government puts into place some measures to ease the hard economic situation in the country.
He complains that people are being displaced by floods here, claiming that nothing is being done to respond to their needs.
Mr. Wisner is not alone criticizing the government on its activities.The People Action Network (PAN) has been critical on government officials on issues of asset declaration.
The group claims that the failure of the president and his officials to declare their assets is a recipe for corruption.PAN Executive Director Rufus Neufville said President George Manneh Weah and all of his officials have allegedly deliberately refused to declare their assets.
