Bitter House Speaker Alex Tyler has been badmouthing Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf led government months after he divorced himself from the ruling establishment saying, the Unity Party Led-administration has poorly performed since its ascendancy in 2006.
Tyler who last week officially announced joining the Liberian People’s Democratic Party or LPDP, which he helped formed said despite opportunities afforded the leadership of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf from the International Community and partners, there is nothing substantially visible for Liberians to boast of.
Tyler fired these salvos at the Ellen regime when he spoke to journalists over the weekend in the central Liberian town of Gbarnga Bong County after hoisting his party flag at the local office. He described the Sirleaf administration as a complete failure to the Country and international community, wondering as to why a government in power for more than ten years would choose to downplay the well-being of its citizens through adequate infrastructure only at last.
Tyler also claimed that only of recent the Sirleaf administration was implementing services because of its quest of maintaining a government. According to the Speaker, the dismal performance of the UP over the years speaks to the fact that the presidential ambition of its Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai is a joke to the practice of democracy.
Tyler was accompanied by the National Chairman of the Liberian People Democratic Party, Representative Moses Kollie of Lofa County. Chairman Kollie also told journalists that Lofa County do not belong to Vice President Boikai as it is being speculated across the country.
He said the Vice President is yet to help with the development of Lofa. He claimed that the road from Gbarnga to Lofa should have been paved after ten years in office, saying he felt sad for Liberians who were qualified, but have no job opportunities.
According to him, if an LPDP government is elected, they would ensure the creation of jobs to reduce the hardship faced by many Liberians.
