Jackson Warns Liberians “Not To Be Used By Politicians”

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA November 8 (LINA) - Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson has called on Liberians to resist politicians who want to use them for personal and selfish political gains.

Jackson’s statement comes in the wake of reports that some politicians are using paid agents to disrupt programs of other politicians or peaceful citizens that are rendering assistance to communities through donations.

The Minister made the statement at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press conference in Monrovia on Friday.

Jackson said it is prudent for politicians to state their disagreement in a manner that would not necessitate or fuel conflict, adding, “To use other Liberians to jeer at others and behave in a disorderly fashion is wrong.”

He observed that such act does not only create an unpleasant atmosphere in the country, but also leads to unnecessary confusion which will not be tolerated by government and the people of Liberia.

“We want Liberia to remain a peaceful nation and as such, every Liberian should join efforts to make sure such unwholesome conduct is abolished,” Jackson stressed.
