-CDC Chairman Tells Suspended Commerce Minister
By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The Chairman of the Ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah Morlu has warned suspended Deputy Commerce Minister for Small Businesses, Jemama Wolokollie to detour and regain her consciousness.
“I was surprised when I read on social media that Hon. Wolokollie was making another statement after being cautioned by the President to wait small, in my view that is unacceptable. She has not gone very far yet, she detours and regain her consciousness,” CDC chairman voiced.
Mulbah Morlu made the assertion at the headquarters of the CDC in Congo Town outside Monrovia when a long time but backslid partisan of the CDC reaffirmed his membership back to the party.
Morlu said every official of government serve at the will and pleasure of the President of Liberia and as such; their actions must be constant with the President agenda for change and not on the contrary, something he thinks the Minister failed to do.
“There must be coherence and discipline in leaders of this government, so when party members irrespective of status try to deviate from this agenda, you must be brought to check,” Morlu stressed.
The CDC chairman disclosed that from the onset of the situation, he and other party officials held a meeting with the two ministers and in said meeting, Minister Wolokollie apologized to her boss, Prof. Wilson and vowed not to go the other way around.
He stated that according to his own internal investigation, there was no basis for the acrimony at the Ministry of Commerce, thus, it is his duty as party official to intervene when there is a need to do so.
Morlu asserted that if any partisan of the CDC cannot respect George Weah, then he wonders who they are going to respect in their lives, adding that the party is not going to accept any act of disrespect on the part of any government official, particularly members and partisans of the CDC.
Morlu indicated that he advised the suspended minister to take steps that are according to him corrective and apologize where she has gone wrong and refrain from making further comments that are reprehensible.
“It is never too late, but for you to be seen as disrespecting the highest authority of the land as a partisan of the CDC will not be supported by this party,” the CDC chairman cautioned suspended Minister Wolokollie.
Recently, President George Weah suspended Deputy Commerce Minister for Small Business, Jemamah Wololokollie for gross disrespect to her boss, Minister Wilson Tarpeh
It can be recalled that deputy Minister Wolokollie took the air waves accusing Minister Wilson Tarpeh of undermining Liberian businesses in the country and overlapping her functions at the Ministry of Commerce.
Meanwhile, following her suspension by the President over the weekend, Minister Wolokollie took to her social media page saying that God will be the judge and she stands by her actions at the ministry.
