-UP Spokesman Tells CDC Chairman, Rep. Gray
By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The chief spokesperson of the opposition Unity Party (UP), Mohammed Ali alias “Mo Ali” has told the Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah Morlu, Montserrado County district eight lawmaker, Moses Acarous Gray and others to “go to hell” over their alleged threats against him.
The chairman of the CDC, Mulbah Morlu recently alleged that Mo Ali and others are working in the government, but continue to ‘bad-mouth’ the government which they are member of; saying “one cannot hold cannon and at the same time hold unto the shore, thus, one must be willing to let go of one for the other.”
“You cannot be an employee of the very same government you protest against or speak negative of the government,”
Morlu further added “people in government that are supposed to be in their offices doing their work that they are being paid by tax payers’ money were protesting against the very government they work for and not just protesting, but lying against the government,” Morlu stressed.
Meanwhile, when contacted through a mobile phone, Mo Ali told our reporter that no amount of threats or intimidations from the two and their likes would make him a coward to the CDC led government, adding “it is my right to protest as a Liberian citizen.”
“Let Mulbah Morlu, Acarous Gray and their likes go to hell. It is my right as a Liberian to protest and no amount of their intimidations will coward me under this regime,” Ali stressed.
Mo Ali further said he wonders whether or not the CDC led government is being run at the level of the party, noting that the CDC chairman is not a member of the government, but always seen interfering with government’s matter.
Ali recounted that during the UP led government, several partisans of the CDC were gainfully employed and were allowed freely to exercise their rights without any form of intimidation against them.
He named Finance and Development Planning Minister, Samuel Tweah and Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Nathaniel McGill as some of the many partisans of the CDC that worked under the UP led administration.
Ali accused the two of calling on the Minister of Finance to take action against him for forming part of the just ended #BringBackOurMoney Campaign held on Monday, September 24, 2018.
“They have called the Finance Minister to reduce my salary, transfer me and in fact send me out of town, particularly Grand Kru, but they can do whatever they want or like, I’m not going to remain quiet on critical national issues affecting our country,” Ali told our reporter via mobile phone.
The UP-chief spokesman and an employee of the Liberian Government at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) comments come days after he form part of the just end #BringBackOurMoney# Protest organized by some civil society groups and opposition political parties in the country demanding answers from government over the alleged missing container of over 15billion Liberian dollars.
