The Movement for the Re-election of Gbehkugbeh (MOREG) has condemned damning posts recently directed at Mr. Bill Twehway and Representative Vincent Willie mainly by supporters of Mr. Gbezohngar M. Findley over the donations made by the two statesmen.
According to a release issued recently, MOREG said it is yet to understand why Findley supporters are so jittery over the support of Representative Willie to the re-election efforts of President Weah.
The release said MOREG is appalled by the ill-advised social media and radio commentaries against Mr. Bill Twehway and Representative Vicent Willie moments after Sunday’s donation ceremony in the port city of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
The release noted that MOREG was founded by National Port Authority Managing Director Twehway as establishments the movement is one of several efforts by supporters for the continuation of the CDC-led government beyond 2024 considering the level of transformation the country is experiencing.
It can be recalled that over the weekend in Buchanan, Representative Willie made a groundbreaking intervention by donating a jeep and five motorcycles to MOREG for the enhancement of the group’s capacity in Grand Bassa. Rep. Wlilie promised additional assistance in the coming days.
The release noted that even though Rep. Willie is not member of the CDC, he had pledged his support to the re-election bid of the Liberian leader.
The press release said most of the arguments are directed at the absence of Findley and Representative Matthew Joe arguing that both Findley and Joe weren’t invited and consulted before staging the program.
The Movement wants to state that it was ridiculously impractical to consult and invite party hierarchy before making a donation to an auxiliary body of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change, and warns those behind this propaganda to desist.
Meanwhile the release is quoted as saying that “It’s the movement’s thinking that Findley supporters would be celebrating the arrival of a major opponent and political heavyweight and at the same time lauding Mr. Twehway for bringing the lawmaker on board, instead of casting aspersions. We’re convinced Representative Willie has come to the movement with everything to drive the re-election bid of President Weah evidenced by his recent donation.”
At the same time, MOREG has called on supporters of Mr. Findley not to be apprehensive about the presence of the Grand Bassa lawmaker, but to see him as someone who shares a similar vision.
Let it be made known that the move by Representative Willie to lend support was triggered by President Weah’s request for the lawmaker to work together owing to their biological relationship.
Willie is a cousin to the president.
According to MOREG, during his recent visit to Grand Bassa district 4 in continuation of the presidential nationwide tour, President Weah promised to work with Representative Willie for the development of the district.
The release also stated that MOREG made it clear for the record that its recruitment strategy and targets are not different from that of the CDC, as the movement like the CDC is targeting mainly first time voters and non-partisans of the governing establishment across the country.
