June 7 Protest Loses Support In Bong -As Motorcyclists Distanced Themselves From Protest
Ahead of the pending June 7 protest, Executives and members of the Bong County motorcyclists Union have distanced themselves from the premeditated “Save The State” protest.
Addressing journalist in Gbarnga at Press conference, three officials of the motorcyclists of Bong County stated that they will not form part of anything called save the state protest.
According to John Vah, Aaron Gartay and Johnson Suah they as motorcyclists of the county over the past have been referred to as trouble makers in the country a libel they want to deny.
The Bong County motorcyclists promised not to take part in any demonstration that will create chaos in the country.
The three officials said by going into the street and protest will not be the solution to Liberia’s problem.
The officials said motorcyclists of Bong County will not ply the street of Gbarnga on June 7.
The motorcyclists through their officials said dialogue is the way forward instead of citizens protesting.
The three officials used the medium to call on motorcyclists and citizens of the County to stay away from a protest that will not benefit them.
They said during the April 14, 1979 rice riot in the country lives of people were destroyed and properties vandalized thereby scaring foreign investors away.
The Bong County Motorcyclists officials have revealed that they will not rant their motorcycles on the day of the June 7 protest in the County.
