LMC Head Wants Liberians Put Country First
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, February 6 (LINA) – The head of the Liberia for Change Movement (LMC), John Brownell, has asserted that now is the time for Liberians to put the interest of their country first, rather than personal gain.

He said to ensure that the country’s interest is protected every eligible Liberian must participate in the ongoing voter registration exercise which he described as the mechanism that will lead to the election of a leader that will put the interest of their motherland first.

“We need to emphasize here that every well-meaning Liberian, including political actors, need to put aside their personal ambitions and put the general interest of Liberia above all other things,” he emphasized.

Addressing journalists in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor Monday, Brownell challenged the National Elections Commission to continue to ensure that Immigration and Police officers are present at all registration centers to ensure that only Liberians get registered.

He also wants members of all grassroots organizations to, on a voluntary basis, work along with the assigned officers to ensure that only citizens are registered.

Meanwhile, the head of the Liberia-based non-profit movement has alarmed that in the midst of abundant resources, a high per cent of citizens are practically beggars, a situation which he wants changed.

He described as totally unacceptable the allotment of nearly 80 percent of the National Budget to administrative cost, while major aspects of development remain unimplemented.

Established on July 15, 2016 in West Point, the movement has spoken on several national issues, including “Why has Liberia not been able to break its resource curse"," the Liberian dream"; "Are we safe as a nation", and "Stop killing the Liberian nest egg before it has been hatched", among others.
