LIBERIA: AMARA KONNEH BASHES FINANCE MINISTER SAMUEL TWEAH

Date:

MONROVIA – In a scathing Facebook post, addressed to Finance Minister Samuel Tweah, former Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Amara Konneh, pulled no punches in criticizing Tweah’s tenure and his handling of the country’s economy.

Konneh began by referring to the “HPX mess,” a clear reference to the controversial Hydrocarbon Production Sharing Contract (HPX) signed by the government, which has faced intense public scrutiny. The agreement, according to Konneh, exhibits all the hallmarks of bad fiscal and economic governance.

He accused Tweah of attempting to divert attention from the core issues at hand by engaging in deceptive tactics and peddling lies on social media platforms like Facebook. Calling Tweah a “desperado,” Konneh highlighted his alleged manipulation of the truth to sway public opinion in his favor.

Furthermore, Konneh accused Tweah of deceiving the Liberian people into voting against their interests. He claimed that Tweah had exploited the trust placed in him by deliberately misleading the electorate during political campaigns, leading them to vote for policies and leaders that would ultimately harm them.

Konneh did not hold back in his assessment of Tweah’s capabilities. He questioned the minister’s integrity and competence, suggesting that his leadership was inadequate for the crucial role he held at the Ministry of Finance. Konneh’s post underscored the need for strong and capable individuals to take charge of the country’s financial affairs to prevent further economic deterioration.

The former finance minister concluded post by emphasizing the urgent need for Tweah’s resignation. He believed that such a move would be necessary to salvage the country’s economy and restore public trust. Konneh’s post serves as a stark reminder of the deep-rooted challenges that confront Liberia in its pursuit of sound fiscal and economic governance.

As the public awaits a response from Minister Tweah, concerns over Liberia’s economic stability and the government’s commitment to transparency and accountability remain at the forefront. The outcome of this dispute will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for the country’s future.
