LIBERIA– Former Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has opposed strong dissatisfaction over the auction in which her successors, the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC) are dragging her administration to muddy waters on the ongoing missing LD 16 billion missing container controversy.
Speaking exclusively, President Sirleaf suggested a sinister play was in place to destroy her legacy and her administration.
She said: “I have been reliably informed that the Central Bank of Liberia has undertaken an internal investigation and in directive from the Minister of Justice and has provided a full report to the police.
“The CBL has prepared a release that gives full evidence and clarification that refutes the statement of Minister Nagbe. This had been held for two days because the CBL Governor and the Minister of Justice have refused to approve the release. It is most unfortunate that the GOL would give false information that wickedly impugns the reputation of past officials and by extension the country itself.”
In the last 24 hours, two key officials of the George Weah-led government have gone on the record to suggest that the previous government is responsible for the missing containers.
Justice Minister, Frank Musah Dean, in a statement on Monday, suggested that the previous administration of President Sirleaf was responsible for the missing container.
