MONROVIA-The National Chairman of the Movement for Economic Empowerment, (MOVEE), Robert Sammie, has refuted claims made by some critics in the Country that the Party joined the Coalition for Democratic Change, (CDC) to acquire jobs from President George M. Weah.
Recently, MOVEE was among the six political parties that joined the CDC to support the re-election of President Weah in the October 10, Presidential and Legislative Elections.
Speaking recently in Monrovia, Sammie stressed that the Party joined the CDC to help transform the country instead of job seeking as being widely speculated by these critics.
He noted that the days are over when politicians used the acquisition of jobs as reasons to join ruling parties.
MOVEE Chairman indicated that public service is meant for the good of society and not selfish interest.
He mentioned that Public Officials have daunting tasks to formulate policies that will improve the lives of Liberians.
Sammie indicated that individuals coming in Government should not focus on wealth accumulation.
“MOVEE is concerned about the Agriculture Sector. We are recommending to the government take the subsidy on the importation of rice and invest it into the sector to produce more food. “The government can open farms in the various regions of the country with the needed equipment to proficiently and effectively address food security.
“MOVEE will criticize the Government indoors and not publicly as other opposition political parties are doing presently.
“Our concern is for the government’s positive impacts that will improve the lives of Liberians” he added.
