Leave Or Else… -Speaker Chambers warns Officials of Gov’t
Representative Bhofal Chambers, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has warned individuals who came in to prominence through the administration of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government and are doing nothing to benefit the country and its people to now begin to think a decision of leaving government instead of tinting its image.
Speaking via mobile phone from the United States of America (USA) on the state-owned Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), Speaker Chambers asserted that officials of government must be supportive of the President’s initiatives to ensure that the government is qualitative.
“I also want to encourage those people in the country that are working in government to help. As I said some people have come up on the wings of President Weah; many persons have come up on his shoulder – they have been given recognition and the validation as eminent and prominent citizens of Liberia and by that, their actions must be supportive of the President’s initiative to ensure that we have a government that is qualitative,” said the House Speaker.
“They must help, they must act. The President will never be everywhere. People who are put in charge of government must be able to represent him [President] fully to the best, and those who are not prepared I don’t think they should be in the mix to tint this government. If you are not prepared to serve this government, it is better you step aside and wait for the time you think you will be able to serve the people,” he furthered.
“But don’t be in government and be an auto intoxicator, don’t play those kinds of role; it’s vicious,” he added.
Speaker Chambers’ warning is in relation to the ensuing elections, of which thinks all officials of government must properly play their role to impact society so as to give the government a positive image for re-election.
Eligible Liberian voters are getting set to go to the poll on October 10, 2023 in consonance of Article 77(b) of the Liberian Constitution.
