Sinoe County Electoral District #2 lawmaker, J. Nagbe Sloh is urging the Liberian leader, President George M. Weah to appoint one of the three listed candidates for the post of Chair at the National Elections Commission-NEC.
According to him, Cllr.
Tiawan S. Gongloe, Cllr.
Negbalee Warner and Cllr. Lamin Lighe are the best choices that President Weah could select from. He expressed frustration over the nomination of what he called a Nigerian, Nwabudusi Nwabuduki to head the National Elections Commission-NEC as Chairman.
Speaking at his Capitol Building office on Friday, Representative Sloh said, the nomination of the Nigerian who bears three (30) birthdays, 1964, 1965 as well as 1962 was a complete disgrace to the government and people of Liberia and that there was a need to prosecute him for perjury.
He further stated that it was actually prudent for the Liberian leader to have sought advice from some of those who are abreast with information of the country rather than for him to rely on those he referred to as sycophants, (his confidants) who, all they do is to clap for him.
“I am surprised about those sycophants, those who sing praises to the Liberian leader. Look, I was the only Representative amongst 73 of my colleagues who disagreed with the Liberian leader when he nominated the Nigerian, (Nwabudike),” he stated.
“No one has the face to stand before President Weah to tell him the truth; after my disagreement with President Weah, several persons took to social media and other places to lash at me, but these were the same Liberians who hailed the President when he recalled the nomination of the Nigerian,” he stated.
“The only thing the President can do now is to package this Nigerian and send him back home, or prosecute him, or else, we may run into more trouble,” he averred.
On the issue of his election at the 54th National Legislature, Rep. Sloh said, although he won on the ticket of the Unity Party, but still remained a member of the ruling party and challenged anyone who will claim to support his election.
“I am a CDCian, but I didn’t receive a dime from any political party to come here; I challenge anyone who will say they paid for my campaign,” he stated.
Rep. Sloh is challenging those who want to contest the seat of District #2 to back off as even Jesus can’t help them. “The way I won in my District, anyone who may want to contest should stand tall because you will spend double of what was spent for last elections; this election will be expensive, and with my District, it is easy for anyone to win there, but you must have money and everything, because even Jesus can’t even help you,” he stated.
He also warned those close to the President to continue to deny him access as he vows to use the media to get to the Liberian leader, because according to him, he had attempted seeing the President several times, but to no avail.
“There are two big guys who believe they can’t allow me to see the President. If they continue to do so, I will continue to be in the media to tell the President how I feel. This is sheer embarrassment. Like business as usual, it was the Party Chairman, who prepared listing of persons he thinks need jobs. We accepted that simply because we taught that was the new thing and that they were to learn, but as we speak, there are two big guys who still believe that they are the only ones to meet the President with listing of names in their hands,” he stated with fury.
“The President is a good man, but we who can move can see things, so let them be able to advice the President on most of these things,” he urged.
Meanwhile, Rep. Nagbe Sloh is nominating Cllr. Negbalee Warner, Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe and Cllr. Lamin Lighe for the post of Chairman at the National Elections Commission-NEC. According to him, the appointment of any of the three names could help erase the negative image the nomination of Nwabudike caused to the CDC led Government.
