Disbanded Soldiers Reject Prince Johnson Proposal

Disbanded AFL Soldiers Leader, Woloh Nagbe

Senator Prince Johnson’s recent pronouncement of settling the payment of the disbanded soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) salaries if he is voted to the country’s presidency, the head of the ex-soldiers say his group has no intention to support any presidential candidates in these elections.

Speaking on a local radio station today, Col. Woloh Nagbe said the request by the Nimba County Senator, who is also an ex-general of the defunct Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL) for them to vote for him come October 10, 2017 will not be possible, noting that no member of his group will get involved in politics.

He said Senator Johnson’s request of calling on his group to vote for in the October elections will not be considered, but rather to request the UP-let Government to quickly settle their long-standing salaries arear.

The disbanded soldiers over the past months have been threatening the pending elections that if their salaries remain unpaid, the holding of elections will not be held, a statement seems to be creating fears in most Liberians.
