LIBERIA: Chief Cyril Allen Expresses Concern Over Gov’t Excessive Spending

Chief Cyril Allen.

An executive of the Governing Council of the Coalition for Democratic Change, Chief Cyril Allen, has stressed the need for government to reduce extensive spending.

Chairman Allen said: “With the size of government and the income, it is prudent to cut down on extraordinary expenses and redirect savings to initiatives that will impact the livelihood of majority of the people”.

Speaking to ELBC Friday, April 19, 2019 noted that such cuts should begin with the Legislature and extend to other branches and functionaries of government.

Chief Allen said: “It is incumbent upon government to reduce widespread spending of public funds as previous governments were also criticized for huge expenditure”.

The top CDC Official reminded the opposition community that despite the current economic situation in the country, government has five years to make things right.

He also urged the organizers of the June 7, 2019 planned protest to be peaceful as a means of putting government on track.
