‘Imposition Of Sanction Will Not Intimidate Us’… Mayor Koijee Picks Bone With  U.S.

Monrovia City Mayor, Jefferson Koijee

Amid the alleged continuous imposition of sanction on officials of the Liberian Government for multiple offenses including corruption by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)  for involvement in ongoing public corruption in Liberia, the Mayor of the City of Monrovia, Jefferson Tamba Koijee has taken exception on the ongoing sanctions being designated for Liberian Government officials.

Speaking to journalists recently in Monrovia bragged that the Coalition for Democratic Change-led government will not be intimidated by the United States and other country under the name of imposition of sanctions by the U.S. Treasury Department.

Koijee in a social media post which went viral, boastfully said, “We respect our friends, the Americans, and the British people but you have to respect us too because we have no record of violence, for making President Weah is our only crime, but we want to thank the President for taking the right decision and don’t think because you have sanctioned a few government officials we will get intimidated”.

Political analysts who spoke to the GNN regarding the utterances of the Monrovia City Mayor by throwing jabs to the Americans will be the beginning of his designation to be placed on similar stage, noting that such un desirable statement from another senior official of the Liberian Government is worrisome, cautioning him to be careful.
