Former Montserrado County District # 8 Representative, Rufus Neufville has taken serious issues with current Montserrado County District #8 Representative, Moses Acarous Gray of not doing much for the people of the district since his ascendency to the national legislature.
Addressing a team of reporters recently in Monrovia, Amb. Neufville among many things alleged that since Rep. Gray got in office, several residents of the district are said to be living in abject poverty while the lawmaker is amassing wealth at the detriment of his constituents.
According to him, Rep. Gray is no longer seeking the interest of the ordinary people who voted for him overwhelmingly during the 2017 Representative election but instead, building and buying mansions outside of his district, something he said is an affront to citizens of the district.
Amb. Neufville who is also the Chairman of the Independent Council of Patriots added, “For the past three years, Gray has not called for any district sitting including community meetings intended for the development and forward march of the district.”
“It is so frustrating to see a lawmaker who was voted to serve his country to be living an extravagant life in one of his mansions along the Roberts Field Highway at the expense of the suffering masses that have been neglected and abandoned by him in the district,” he lamented.
Amb. Neufville’s statements came days the Mont. lawmaker took serious issues with some key government officials of not doing much to help actualize the government’s developmental agenda and the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).
In an exclusive interview with some local media, Rep. Gray stressed the need for some financial experts to assist Finance Minister, Samuel D. Tweah and his team in handling the Liberian Economy.
He added that the country’s Finance Minister lacks the ability to reach out to his international partners for help, stressing that his alleged refusal to seek help in handling the Liberian Economy is creating serious problem for the administration of President George Weah.
The District #8 lawmaker also accused the Ministry of Agriculture Minister, Jeannie Cooper for not doing much to revamp the country’s agricultural sector since she took over as Minister. He also stressed the need for the Minister of Justice Minister, Frank M. Dean to define his path as to where his loyalty belongs.
