Liberia’s Maritime Commissioner, Lenn Eugene Nagbe, has admitted to purchasing a vehicle that costs over US$59,000 amid growing economic challenges currently besetting Liberians.
Making the disclosure Tuesday when he appeared on OK FM Morning Rush, Commissioner Eugene Nagbe said the Chevrolet Tahoe he purchased was the cheapest option among vehicles intended to be bought for him by the commission.
Mr. Nagbe said the vehicle is one of the cheapest vehicles many top officials of the Weah led government are driving, but wonders why he is the only person being criticized.
He also hailed members of the Congress for Democratic Change Youth League for expressing dissatisfaction in him and other government officials, but reminded them to also gratify government officials who are adequately performing.
The Maritime boss then blasted some members of the opposition community including Byron Brown Jr. and others for propagating information that he termed as false.
Meanwhile, when contacted by Byron Brown, he asserted that he is going to remain focused on his advocacy that aims to expose all corrupt government officials.
The CPP Intellectual Brigade Chairman said Commissioner Nagbe should join him to call for an audit of the legislature if he truly believes his father stole and was corrupt during his tenure as representative.
