LIBERIA – Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine, the daughter of deceased Liberian politician Charles W. Brumskine, has called on Liberians to desist from politicizing the issue of rice and its scarcity on the Liberian market, noting that the issue of Liberia’s staple diet is a very sensitive matter to all Liberians.
Cllr. Brumskine added that the issue should be treated as a matter of urgency to mechanized farming and promote local agricultural products on the various markets in the country.
According to her, there are many policies and political steps that need to be taken to make sure that the nation does not experience a shortage of rice again.
She made the statement to journalists recently in Monrovia when she encouraged those in authority to disseminate proper and timely information so as to avoid mixed feelings from the public.
Ms. Brumskine asserted that with the proper information, the people will be truly aware of what is unfolding and that information will further guide them.
At the same time, Cllr. Brumskine emphasized her position on the current chaos within the Liberty Party, citing that the party is bigger than any fraction or subdivision.
She reaffirmed her support for the party in general, noting that she stands with the party.
Cllr. Brumskine explained that the Liberty Party comprises many Liberians who believe in the ideology of her late father, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine and therefore she stands with the people.
The Liberian lawyer didn’t hide her feelings about what she thinks about the ongoing crisis in the Liberty Party by stating that she’s hurt by the crisis terming the chaos in the party as slow destruction of one of the greatest political parties in Liberia.
“It upsets me to think that we have brought down the life and sacrifices of Brumskine. The sacrifices of the founding members of LP to two groups of people, who are fighting,” Cllr. Brumskine said, (LINA).
