The Assistant Secretary for Press and Publicity of the former ruling Unity Party Mohammed Ali sharply reacts to the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Chairman Molubah Morlu’s recent claim of an opposition plot to assassinate President George Weah, dismissing it as total nonsense.
Appearing on OK FM’s live talk show in Monrovia Wednesday, February 12, he says such allegation sends out a very bad signal to foreign investors that the country is not stable.
“No matter how unhappy the opposition community is, they will not attempt to assassinate the President; instead, he will be unseated democratically through the ballot box comes 2023.”He asserts that it is unfortunate that CDCians, including Chairman Morlu would resort to scare tactics.
“Liberians are now far away by-standers to their economy, contrary to President Weah’s inaugural address that Liberians will not be spectators to their [own]economy”, Ali notes.
Meanwhile, the UP Assistant scribe says his recent resignation from the Ministry of Finance has nothing to do with his transfer to Grand Kru County, southeast Liberia.
According to him, he had worked almost throughout the entire country, so an assignment to Grand Kru was not a challenge to him.
Ali explains he was transferred to Grand Kru by the Ministry of Finance as Regional Director without a Terms of Reference (ToR) and after exercising patience for a certain period, he was not awarded said document, which deprived him from knowing his responsibility.
“I believe that I could survive out of government, so I had to resign since I was just there without carrying out any function.”
