Information Minister Ledgerhood Rennie has expressed frustration over what he called insults from opposition leaders against the presidency.
Addressing a Ministry of Information Cultural Affairs and Tourism regular Press Briefing Thursday, Minister Rennie said it is regretful for Leaders who should serve as role models to young people in the body politic of our Country, will be using invectives as a new way of politicking.
The Liberian Information Minister comments follow days after Former Vice President Joseph Boakai made demeaning statements against President George Weah when he took over the Chairmanship of the Collaborating Political Parties.
According to Minister Rennie, the former Vice President’s recent comment against President Weah is unnecessary despite the political differences.
Meanwhile, Minister Rennie further noted that the peace and stability of Liberia rest on the shoulder of every Liberian, as such there is no need for people who call themselves political leaders to get involved in rendering insults at each other.
In another development, Minister Rennie has blasted the Political Leader of the People’s Liberation Party for calling on his supporters to protest over the alleged refusal of the Government to provide him a landing permit for his aircraft.
Recently, the Political Leader of the People’s Liberation Party Dr. Daniel Cassel, and his supporters vowed to protest if the government through the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority does not grant permits for the landing of the party’s Helicopter at the Roberts International Airport.
But, responding to the statement of the PLP Political Leader Thursday, at the Ministry of Information Cultural Affairs &Tourism regular briefing, Minister Rennie described Dr. Daniel Cassel’s statement as trash.
He warned Dr. Cassel and his supporters to desist from making threatening statements of protestation, adding that anyone who gets into the streets to protest without a permit from the government will be arrested.
