LMTU Official Urges Motorcyclists To Uphold The Rule of Law

By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, May 1 (LINA) - The President of the Liberia Motorcyclists Transport Union (LMTU) Nimba Chapter is calling on motorcyclists across the country to uphold the rule of law, especially during this electioneering period.

Addressing journalists in Ganta over the weekend, Mr. Aloysious Seakel observed that it is the responsibility of every Liberian to work towards preserving the peace and sanity of the nation.

According to Mr. Seakel, motorbike riders are the ones most wicked-minded politicians use to instigate chaos, noting that this has made motorcyclists to be considered by the public as 'troublemakers' and a 'misguided' group of people.

Seakel argued that motorcyclists are as important as any group of Liberians, and challenged them to get involved in things that will make them regain the trust and confidence of society.

The LMTU boss asserted that motorcyclists can do this by shunning violence, seeking the rule of law to address their plights, respecting authorities and not allowing themselves to be used by wicked individuals to cause trouble and confusion.

"You can regain the confidence of the communities by respecting authorities, not getting involved with violence and other unlawful acts," Seakel stressed.

He called on motorcyclists to see themselves as agents of positive change and not as agents of the devil and wicked individuals, and challenged them to always be law-abiding and work with other Liberians to maintain the peace and security of the country.

“As the country gears up for the holding of its third successive presidential and legislative elections following the end of more than a decade of civil conflict, it is everybody’s responsibility to ensure a successful outcome,” Seakel observed.
