MONROVIA-The Ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Secretary General, Jefferson Koijee has proclaimed that the Party has instituted surveillance on presidential government officials who were appointed by President George M. Weah in line with the constitutional provision that gives him the right to appoint.
Mr. Koijee said the party is not against President Weah giving Liberians the opportunity to serve in various capacities of the government, but the party will not condone any official who will betray the social contract with the CDC and that of the Liberian People.
Speaking over the weekend during a press conference in Congo Town, the new Coalition for Democratic Change Secretary General, said it is unfortunate that some government officials will be in the system and at sometimes engaged in acts that have the proclivity to undermine the government’s programs.
“We are not saying that everything is okay to our government appointees, especially presidential appointees when things go wrong, some of you will be nowhere around here, they will be asking party’s leaders and we will not sit and wait for you, and say you will go and collapse before we guide you, “he said.
According to Mr. Koijee , the CDC leadership does not need the permeation from those government officials to ensure that they are on the right path in leading the activities of the government at their respective Ministries and Agencies as well as commissions.
“To our friends, when the President gives you an opportunity, we do not question the President’s decision, it is the fundamental right of the President; it is the Liberian People who give him that right to help Liberians, we are not saying to be a cdcian or none cdcian where ever you are when you are given an opportunity, we have one moral responsibility and that is to act in accordance with the aspiration of the Congress for Democratic Change”, he said.
Koijee said the people of Liberia voted for the CDC on its agenda of Pro-Poor for Development and Prosperity stressing that the partisans of CDC have given them the mandate to ensure that all government officials will be monitored to represent the best interest of the Liberian People under the guidance of the CDC.
He said those of CDC partisans who the people of Liberia have been entrusted with the country’s leadership will no longer be spectators but will be monitored to ensure that they do their work among others.
Koijee said the CDC will resist anyone who will undermine the workings of President George M. Weah-led government.
