Individuals and opposition politicians that are condemning policy actions of the ruling Coalition For Democratic Change-led government that has been in office for less than five months are “blind critics” who have refused to be sincere in their assessment of the administration performance, party Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu said Wednesday in Monrovia.
He said President George Weah and his cabinet will continue to focus on the achievement of the administration’s flagship ‘Pro=poor’ socio-economic development agenda, which will lift the country’s masses from poverty.
No amount of criticism, the ruling party Chairman said will distract the government in its efforts to rebuild the economy and implement infrastructure projects that has targeted.
He made the statements when he addressed hundreds of partisans at the CDC’s Headquarters Wednesday following his return from United States of America.
“We are not here to be distracted by criticism. CDCians that are given jobs, do your work. Do not be distracted from the focus of the pro poor agenda implementation process. They are blind critics,” he said.
“There will always be criticism, no matter how much you achieve.”
“The incremental progress of this presidency in short period will go down in history as the greatest President of the Republic of Liberia forever.”
Chairman Morlu: “In 100 days we saw feasibility studies been done for the construction of new Monrovia City. In 100days, we saw the ground breaking ceremony for construction of the Military Hospital. In 100 days, we saw a meeting with rice importers and stakeholders to decrease the price of Liberia’s staple food (rice). In 100 days , we saw WAEC fees been paid for senior high school students by Mr. President. In 100 days we are seeing operations clean Liberia that was launched by the President himself. In 100 days, we saw the reduction of government’s officials salaries. In 100 days, we saw the President reducing his salary and benefits by 25%.”
He dismissed allegation that Presidential Affairs Minister Nathaniel McGill has acquired US$200,000 to purchase his dream house government.
“No facts in McGill’s allegation. If you want to castigate this government, or any minister of government, we will help you to criticize but bring facts to the table,” he said.
