Liberia: Coalition Gives Rep. George 72 Hours to Apologize

The Coalition of Youth and Students to enhance peace and democracy in Liberia have given District # 7 Representative, Solomon George, 72 hours to apologize to City Mayor Mary Broh and the women of Liberia for his vulgar comments directed at womanhood.

The group stated further that if Representative George fails to retract his statement, they will actually waste no time but to rally support for the impeachment proceeding process against him.

They described Representative George's statement as reckless, unprofessional, unethical, unspeakable, and does not reflect a good image of an elected official of government, especially a man who represents groups of people in the National Legislature.

Meanwhile, the Coalition of Youth and Students to enhance Democracy in Liberia are calling on all Civil Society Organizations, women, students and Youth groups to condemn Representative George, because his discourteous attitude has undoubtedly brought shame to District #7, Montserrado County.

The Coalition has meanwhile called on Madam Broh to remain resolute and continue to do the job of the Liberian people.

According to the Coalition, over the years, Mayor Broh has demonstrated good stewardship from her position as Passport Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Deputy Managing Director for Administration at the National Port Authority and currently at the Monrovia City Corporation. "Such dedicated person like the Monrovia City Mayor, Mary Broh should be highly commended for contributing to the growth and development of the nation and she should therefore be treated with utmost courtesy," the group intimated.
