The political leader of the Vision for Liberia Transformation Party or VOLT, Dr. Jeremiah Z. Whapoe, has launched a stinking attack against the standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE) Dr. Mills Jones, calling on the MOVEE boss to keep his mouth shut on the Code of Conduct because the law is the law and nothing or no one can change it.
Speaking in an interview recently, Dr. Whapoe reminded that Liberia is at a crossroads and nobody or nothing should create another problem as the country moves to democratic elections.
According to him, Dr. Jones should have resigned his post two or three years ago if he had intention to contest for the presidency, but he never did, and he alone cannot stop the elections from being held.
Dr. Whapoe continues that the Code of Conduct was announced three years ago, and those, who work in the Executive Branch of Government like Dr. Jones did, should have resigned accordingly rather than creating unnecessary panic among the population.
Speaking at the headquarters of VOLT, he said Liberia belongs to all Liberians and no one person should threaten the stability of the state, especially on the road to elections.
He added that similarly, the standard bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) Alexander B. Cummings was also in the know of the Code of Conduct and should have known that accepting an appointment from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as member of the Board of the Booker Washington Institute, would have raise some controversy when he decides to contest for Presidency.
The Supreme Court of Liberia has upheld the Code of Conduct as constitutional, and the National Elections Commission has vowed to enforce all aspects of the document, Dr. has maintained that come what may, he will be on the ballot box as a presidential candidate on polling day.
