Gbarnga-Bong County -MT- Electoral District #3 Representative J. Marvin Cole has assured citizens in the County that he will call on President George M. Weah to dismiss the Internal Affairs Minister Varney A. Sirleaf for allegedly lobbying to undermine the administration of the Weah led government by colluding Superintendent Esther Walker to squander or abuse public funds in the County.
On August 10, 2021 members of the 54th National Legislature decided to place a moratorium on the account of Bong County and further requested for an audit to be done on the account of the County.
The placement of the moratorium means there will be no withdrawals from the county’s account until the ban is lifted.
The decision was reached following a letter from Bong County District #3 Representative J. Marvin Cole to invite Internal Affairs Minister Varney A. Sirleaf, the County’s Superintend Esther Walker, and the Project Management Committee chair, Stephen J. Mulbah to appear before Plenary and explain the alleged mismanagement of over USD 86,000 from the County’s coffers.
During the appearance of Minister Sirleaf, Superintendent Walker and PMC chair Mulbah denied financial malpractice and said they have been working in line with the law.
But speaking at the Gbarnga Intellectual Center recently in the County, Rep. Cole alleged that Minister Sirleaf has been hugely involved in the mismanagement of finance from the Bong County account.
The lone CDC Representative further assured citizens of his constituent that he will make sure to prosecute any individual who will be found guilty after the pending audit in the County.
“I don’t care who feels Marvin Cole should not be elected in the 2023 general and Presidential elections. Look, I want to die with a holy conscience knowing that I fought for the people who trusted me with state power in the 2017 general and Presidential elections in the country,” he noted.
The tough-talking CDC Lawmaker revealed that he will not surrender to any leaders who want to do wrong or used their power to exploit the people who elected them in Bong County.
“We will be good friends when they do the right thing and we will be bad friends when they do the wrong thing,” Rep. Cole added.
