MONROVIA: The City Mayor of Monrovia, Jefferson Tamba Koijee has labeled members of the opposition community as “hate-positions” and call on them to change the thought pattern towards the governing process of their country.
According to Koijee, what is being exhibited in Liberia by members of the opposition community by threatening to evade the country’s peace process does not represent a true democratic opposition but a group of people full of hate and deceit against those in power.
He claimed, members of the opposition bloc are still suffering from post-electoral trauma and as such, it is about time that they put the past behind them and work as a true opposition community in making the country better.
The Lord Mayor of Monrovia cautioned members of the opposition to foster tolerance and cultivate civility in their discussions and refrain from issuing threats and using invectives against the presidency and other top officials of government.
He said members of the opposition should not see the government continues support towards freedom of speech and expression as a whipping-rod to make unsubstantiated statements that do not mean well for the growth and development of the country.
The youthful lord mayor made these statements Thursday, February 14, 2019 when he served as Guest Speaker and Induction Officer of the student council government of the Sekou I. Sheriff Senior High School in the J.J. Y. Community along the Somalia Drive in Monrovia.
“Not because the government is quiet then people will continue to insult the presidency every day. We have come to the realization that these people who claimed to be opposition are not opposition they are hate-position. These people always feel they should be in these positions we find ourselves in today. They pretend to love this country; they pretend to have all the remedies to the country’s problem. Don’t be fooled, they do not love you. They are hate-positions,” he averred.
He further called on the young students to cultivate a positive mindset for their country and develop a nationalist spirit in all their doings
