Liberia: CDC Disappointed With Ellen's Gov't

The lead opposition political party- Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) through its deputy chairman, Mr. Mulbah Morlu, has asserted that the party is disappointed with the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf led administration as it relates to the governance process of the country.

The CDC vice chairman stated that his party will not shy away from making its disappointment clear about what he calls the trend that the governance process of the nation was taking under the Johnson-Sirleaf leadership, adding that:

"People are suffering, the economic situation is worsening, and Liberians can no longer afford to feed their homes because of the worsening economic constraints on the country."

He averred that the CDC is not happy over the handling of the country's affairs by the Government of Liberia (GoL), citing what he refers to as the "unaffordable" high petroleum price on the Liberian market as an example.

He intoned that under the Johnson-Sirleaf's administration, unemployment is skyrocketing, transportation cost is unbearable, the cost of doing business in Liberia is difficult and taxation is high.

He then challenged the GoL about the veracity of its pronouncement of creating 20,000 jobs in 2012, indicating that in the face of heightening massive unemployment in the country, the CDC believes that for the Government to claim to have created such amount of jobs in one year is a myth.

He made these assertions on Monday, 7 January 2012, when he appeared as guest on the Truth Breakfast Show(TBS) on Truth FM.
