President To Deliver Address At Capitol, says Minister Brown

By Prince Nagbe

MONROVIA, Jan 16 (LINA) - Information Minister Lewis Brown says the President’s State of the Nation Address will be delivered at the Capitol Building on the fourth working Monday in January as is traditional.

Minister Brown was reacting to a local daily publication Thursday saying that the address would have been delivered on Planet Pluto.

The paper made the assertion in a story captioned: “The President State of the Nation Address will be delivered on Planet Pluto, if nothing is done to reopen the University of Liberia.”

Addressing the Ministry of Information regular Thursday press briefing at the Ministry of Information, Minister Brown said: “The speech will be delivered at the Capitol Building where it should be; not on Pluto and nobody will stop it, neither today nor tomorrow.”

He said those who are against the President making the address will be the ones who will go to Pluto and not the President, because the President’s Speech will be delivered at the Legislature on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

He said Liberians should now learn to express and channel their grievances through the proper means, instead of using inciting statements which threaten the peace and security of the country, saying “enough is enough.”

Minister Brown challenged those claiming that the President will deliver her speech on Pluto to go to the Capitol Building on the Fourth working Monday in this month, to witness the President deliver the State of the Nation Address to the Honorable Legislature and the Liberian people, as required by law, and not Planet Pluto.

He said the Government has refused to take sides in the UL saga and will continue to do so as it is in the best interest of the country, adding, “no amount of threats can and will change the Government’s decision.”

He said the only side the Government will take is the side which follows the rule of law to the letter and not the path of violence.
