...Speaker's Office Refutes Sen. Johnson's Assertion
The office of House Speaker Jenakai Alexander Tyler has described as a “complete absurdity and devilish” assertion made by Bomi County Senator, Sando Johnson, alleging that the Speaker is “mobilizing political forces” to remove President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf from office.
In a press statement, the Speaker's office denied the allegation and said Mr. Tyler has never, and will never contemplate on such a devilish and wishful thinking of Mr. Johnson.
It added that everything ever said by Mr. Johnson about Speaker Tyler is false, misleading and enviously malicious.
The Speaker's office observed that the concept of free speech in Liberia has paved the way for political surrogates, stooges and lowly paid agents to cast aspersion on his person.
“These political puppets often go to unreasonable lengths to shamelessly assassinate the impeccable and unenviable characters of other citizens,” the release stated.
The Speaker's office called on Senator Johnson to desist from the attitude of seeking the downfall of Mr. Tyler.
The release indicated that it was the same Sando Johnson, who attempted to undermine the election of Mr. Tyler during the 2011 presidential and legislative election.
The clarification from the Speaker's office followed recent reports that the Executive Branch was plotting the removal of Mr. Tyler. However, the Executive Mansion denied the report and said it has no plan to remove Speaker Tyler as speculated.
