…-Over Failure To Meet Demand
MONROVIA-Senator Prince Y. Johnson says in November 2017, an agreement was entered into with the Congress for Democratic Change to give his party its political support, but with the prevailing conditions, something the CDC headed by President George Weah had since failed to honor.
Although a copy of the agreement was not disclosed nor was it stated if it had been a written document, however, in the special press statement released of late, Senator Johnson named top Ministerial posts including Managing Directors and some ambassadorial positions to be given to sons and daughters from Nimba County to occupy these top positions through his recommendations.
This alleged agreement is yet to take effect since the CDC-led- government came to power in 2018, Johnson added.
He says, “The citizens of Nimba have for the past five years been knocking at my door for the President to appoint them, and we have used all diplomatic means and have consistently engaged this CDC led- government, but nothing is working in order to get redress and make our people who struggled during the campaign period happy.”
Johnson in a statement released, inform partisans and supporters in and out of the country that the agreement entered into with the CDC has come to an end over the failure of the regime to live up to the agreement.
“So for and on behalf of the great people of Nimba and all partisans of the MDR Political Party, we are now constrained to make this pronouncement that we are “HALTING OUR POLITICAL SUPPORT” to the Coalition.”
Johnson mentioned, “As a former general in the army, we believe in agreement and don’t like to betray what we have agreed upon, so we ask you to remain calm until we can later inform you about where to go.”
