ULAA Wants Sanctioned Officials Sacked …Says They betrayed Liberians’ confidence

The Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas, (ULAA) has called on President George Manneh Weah to immediately dismiss the three officials sanctioned by the United States government.
According to the group of Linerians abroad, the growing level of developmental challenges facing the nation must compel the Weah administration to take positive steps in this heightened political landscape to mitigate and adapt to fundamental approaches to overhaul Liberia’s prevailing political and economic realities.
ULAA believes that the officials’ action undermines democracy in Liberia as stated by Liberia’s leading partner, the United States.
ULAA is vehemently demanding the immediate dismissal of Minister of State Nathaniel McGill, Solicitor General Sayma Syrenius Cephas, and Managing Director of Liberian Port Authority (NPA) Bill Twehway from their positions while they face the full weight of the law pointing out, “These government officials have betrayed the confidence of the Liberian people and cannot be trusted any longer.”
ULAA said it also hails and supports the swift decision of President Weah recently to suspend those found wanting in order for them to face investigation after being designated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) as undermining democracy in Liberia for their own personal benefit and involvement with a wide range of corrupt schemes.
“Painfully and profoundly, the corrupt activities of McGill, Cephas and Twehway must not be taken as business as usual or fall on deaf ears by the Weah Administration,” ULAA stated.
Meanwhile, ULAA said the Liberian government must also consider instituting serious measures to revamp the Liberian Society from the intrinsic evils of rampant corruption, marginalization, exploitation, lack of job creation for the poor, spiraling mob-violence against political rivals, wave of mysterious disappearances related to ritualistic killings, rape and domestic violence, lack of respect for the rule of law and human rights as well as deplorable educational and health-care systems.
However, ULAA expresses firm support and remains committed to work alongside the Liberian, United States Governments and various sectors of the society for peace, respect for the rule of law, and the institution of effective governance in Liberia against skyrocketing poverty, institutionalized corruption, mismanagement and cronyism.
