Margibi County Senator Oscar Cooper has announced his support for the June 7 mass protest in Liberia.
Speaking to the media recently, Senator Cooper stressed that it is the rights of every Liberian to protest if they are convinced that the government cannot meet their needs and he is therefore joining the protest to express his grievances on the current state of Liberia.
According to Senator, the rule of law is not being followed by all three branches of government in Liberia and therefore the need to protest to get the government attention. He said there is poor leadership at the legislative branch of government, making reference to Senate Pro Tempt Albert Chea and speaker Bhofal Chambers, something he believes led to the unconstitutional removal of former Justice Je’neh.
Senator Cooper disagrees with Liberians who are of the conviction that it is still early to keep the Weah-led government feet to the fire.
He said President Weah, like others politicians during promise the Liberia People to change or stop every ills that former President Sirleaf had in her government.
“Let them stop shifting blames when indeed they told us that they wanted to change things around, but like I said I haven’t seen the road map this government has to change this economy of our country around.”
Senator Cooper is at the same time calling on the government to stop blaming former President Sirleaf for its woes and work to mitigate issues impeding the economy of the country.
