“I’m Not a Security Threat to President Weah”

-Senator Dillon Clarifies

MONROVIA-Montserrado County Senator, Abraham Darius Dillon says he is not a security threat to President George M. Weah.

The Montserrado County senator’s statement was clarity and response to an allegation made by Police Inspector General Col. Patrick Sudue.

The Police appearing before the Senate’s Committee on Defense, Security, and Veteran Affairs told members of the body that Senator Dillion puts a security threat to the Liberian leader.

But in response to the accusation, the tough-talking Montserrado senator said his presence does not in any way put a security threat to the Liberian Presidency as alleged by the Police Boss.

“In my head and by my conduct, I do not put a security threat to the President; in my head, the only threat I put to President Weah is the reality that we will do everything possible to remove President Weah in the Mansion in 2023 democratically,” Senator Dillon told reporters in Monrovia.

The Montserrado lawmaker said EPS and other security officers wearing party T-Shirts behind the President of Liberia should not see him as one who puts a security threat to the Liberians but should rather think twice.

“The people said, EPS officers wearing Party T-Shirts did not understand the Standard Operation Procedure (SOP); but the question is, where did the EPS officers wear the T-Shirts, was it on 11th Street, on the highway or at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium; and if it was so, didn’t the President see them. In fact, who can put the President in his car, and who can open the car doors for him to come out?” Senator Dillon teased journalists during the interview.

The wearing of party T-Shirts by EPS officers during the publicized 1Million Citizens Rally held on February 4, 2023, raised eye bras in the opposition community with some condemning the acts, but supporters of the ruling establishment saw no wrong at first.

The government of Liberia only condemned the acts when she received condemnation from the international community a day after the rally.
