UNITY PARTY RAISES CONCERNS ABOUT ALLEGED THREAT OF ASSASSINATION BY WEAH GOV’T… 

Date:

MONROVIA – The former ruling Unity Party says it is deeply troubled and concerned about the alleged threat of assassination by the George Weah government on the lives of opposition leaders and the top leadership of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR), Senator Prince Y. Johnson.

Unity Party in a press statement issued today urges the Weah government to speak clearly about the veracity of this grave allegation and launch a prompt investigation to ascertain the facts and circumstances that gave rise to such a troubling accusation.

The UP notes that threats on the lives of leaders of the opposition bloc are becoming increasingly concerning as these threats create the stage for electoral violence and voter apathy.

In less than 9 months to October 10, 2023, Legislative and Presidential elections, Liberians cannot afford to witness any reversion of our already deteriorating security situation, the press statement indicated.

“The UP, therefore, calls on the United Nations, European Union, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and Foreign Embassies to make appropriate diplomatic interventions as the allegation from the MDR seem very grave and could undermine the peace and stability of our nation”.

“On the claim from the CDC government that it met a broken economy and empty cover, we reiterate that the Unity Party left 157 million in the National reserve at the Central Bank of Liberia.”

“To this end, The Unity Party calls on the George Weah government to heed to the challenge of Senator Prince Johnson to Publish the turnover note the Unity Part government presented when Weah assumed the helm of the Liberian Presidency,” the statement concluded.
