Rep. Chambers Urges Stern Action Against Profiteers

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, August 8 (LINA) - Maryland County Representative Bhofal Chambers has stressed the need for government to halt the arbitrary hike in the prices of basic commodities by

unscrupulous business entities amidst the Ebola virus outbreak in the country. Representative Chambers said he has observed that some business

entities and individuals are using the situation of the Ebola outbreak to arbitrarily increase prices to the detriment of the Liberian people. In an interview with

the Liberia News Agency Thursday, Chambers emphasized that in this sad chapter of the nation’s history, there was no need for the business community to

exploit the people with impunity. He stressed that it was time for the business community to exhibit a high degree of nationalism and patriotism and reduce

prices even without the intervention of the government. Chambers noted that it would be in the interest of Liberians were the government to take prompt and

concrete steps to arrest the situation, especially under the State of Emergency. The lawmaker argued that the Liberian people did not create the prevailing

health situation, and as such there was no need for the business community to make life unbearable for them by hiking prices. He added that government

needs to act now to rescue the people from the hands of those who are bent on making things difficult for them by taking action against profiteers.
