The Minister of State Wesseh Blamoh has threatened to expose government officials that he suspects are awarding contracts in Nimba County outside of policy prescribed by Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC) of Liberia.
Minister Blamo disclosed that government awarded an electricity project to a Nimba lawmaker without following the PPCC process.
He did not name the lawmaker involved but notes that the individual has turned against President Weah and his CDC-led government.
“I Will expose the document toward such decision, I don’t want to explain more things here because I came for different program”, he said.
The former Grand Kru Representative now Minister of State also expressed disappointment in more Liberians, including the people of Nimba, who he notes, are ungrateful to President Weah despite the fact that he continues to do more for Liberia compared to the former ruling Unity Party government that spent 12 years in power, but was unable to do so much in six years.
“This boy was sent by God to help Liberia to be developed, so don’t fight him; you who are going against President George Weah will not feed your home; you have not been able to feed your wife in the home”, he continues.
At the same time, Mr. Blamoh calls on Liberians, including the people of Nimba to give President George Weah a 12-year leadership as was done to former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
This paper has obtained a text message sent to Pastors and Imams, including religious leaders in Ganta, inviting them to gather and pray for peaceful elections come October, but the forum was changed to a political gathering, where Minister Blamoh instead, called on Liberians including Nimbaisns to give President Weah a second term.
Some of the Pastors left the scene detesting that the gathering was headed in a completely different direction, saying “We are God-fearing people and should not be taking a side.”
The forum constrained several Muslim leaders, who were present to miss their prayer hours for the day.
However, regarding education and health, including roads the Minster bragged that government has done so much that is helping to impact Liberians.
Speaking further, Minister Blamoh alleged that government has constructed a modern hospital in Sanniquellie, Nimba County, but citizens quickly denied it, clarifying that instead, government is expected to construct a hospital that may cost US$3.2 million in Sanniquellie.
Notwithstanding, some Pastors at the ceremony pledged their support for President Weah’s second term bid. Editing by Jonathan Browne
