MONROVIA, June 18 (LINA) - The Executive Mansion press office has dismissed the “Open Letter” of former NOCAL president Christopher Neyor, describing it as a “low diatribe” which is politically motivated.
Deputy Presidential Press Secretary Christopher Sellee in an exclusive interview with the Liberian News Agency at his Executive Mansion Office Tuesday said: “At this crucial time in the development of our country, for anyone to imagine that the Liberian President would be “plotting” to destroy them because they have perceived political differences with the administration is trapped in time.”
He said Mr. Neyor is “sadly unaware of the growing space for political participation and inclusion; and is yet to come to grips with the ongoing political transition, democratic consolidation and economic transformation of the country which, he noted, are cherished legacies of President Johnson Sirleaf.
Mr. Sellee explained that as Liberians expect, President Sirleaf continues to be busy working to improve the lives of the people and the image of the country focusing, as always, on ongoing challenges to the country’s recovering economy, improving the infrastructure and resolving threats of a renewed outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, among many others, rather than have time for political maneuvers whose ends are wholly selfish.
He added that Mr. Neyor’s outburst is intended to undermine the progress of the country, noting that it would not contribute to resolving any of the challenges with which the country is faced.
The 2nd Deputy Presidential spokesman warned politicians and contenders for elected offices to focus on persuading potential voters about how they can contribute to improving their lives, rather than seeking to draw unnecessary attention to themselves through falsehood, subterfuge and gamesmanship.
“Our people now know better,” Mr. Sellee reminded Mr. Neyor.
