Min. Jackson Labels Urey ‘Dictatorial, Intolerant’

By Derrick G. Menkarzon

MONROVIA, October 4 (LINA) – Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson has labeled All Liberian Party (ALP) political leader Benoni Urey as “dictatorial and intolerant.”

He also described Urey as someone who “will be a poor representation of the country” if elected president.

Jackson made the statement Tuesday on Prime FM 105.5 talk show, “Prime Morning Drive, in response to a statement by Urey in which he criticized the democracy of the country.

Urey said during a press conference at his party headquarters in Sinkor outside Monrovia Monday that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s administration has the worst democratic credentials of any government in the history of Liberia.

In response, Jackson indicated that Urey does not have the credibility to evaluate Liberia’s democratic credentials which, according to him, was destroyed by Urey and his political master, Charles Taylor.

He noted that the Sirleaf-led government has genuine democratic credentials compared to the Taylor-led government, adding that Urey has been notorious for colluding with former rebel leader Taylor in looting the national coffers.

Jackson indicated that Urey has “no credibility to discuss the issue of democracy and free speech” because no democratic leader will ever expel a journalist from covering a program as he (Urey) has done in the past.

He noted that the government is making good efforts in fighting corruption, adding, “People should be applauding the President for making massive efforts to develop Liberia.”
