Capitol Hill, Monrovia – Representative Ivar K. Jones (CDC, Disrict #2, Margibi County) has sharply reacted to allegations that he and other stalwarts of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) are behind the dismissal of several public officials assigned in Margibi for not supporting him in the December 8 Special Senatorial Elections. Rep. Jones contested on the ticket of the CDC and came second in the polls that saw former House Speaker James Emmanuel Nuquay returning to the Legislature as Senator of Margibi County. Following the elections, several public officials in the county have been dismissed, and their sackings have been linked to the ruling party’s stalwarts from the county. FrontPage Africa was not successful in getting comments from these officials as calls placed to them via mobile phones did not go through. Meanwhile, Rep.

EDITORIAL: Raising Taxes At The Expense Of The Poor – The Audacity of APM Terminals in LiberiaTHE ONGOING DEBATE over the APM Terminals offers a perfect opportunity for those in the corridors of power to correct the flawed concession now causing headaches for Liberians. WE ARE APPALLED at the audacity of APM Terminal’s flimsy explanation that the increment was in line with its concession agreement with the government of Liberia which allows a 2021 tariff adjustment using predefined formula. FROM ALL INDICATION, the concession with APM terminals was bad from the start. THE BOTTOM LINE is that APM Terminals can no longer continue to increase tariff on struggling businesses and ordinary Liberians. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD not stand by and allow APM Terminals to repeatedly raise taxes at will to the detriment of its own people.

The House’s latest move came as a result of APM Terminals’ latest increment of all current charges of its services at the Free Port of Monrovia. The port operator said the increment was in line with its concession agreement with the government of Liberia which allows a 2021 tariff adjustment using predefined formula. He said there was an urgent need to review the agreement signed between the APM Terminals and the Government to correct some of the flaws that the company is dwelling to exploit the Liberian citizens. I think APM Terminals’ operations in Liberia need to be revisited to address some of the clauses that continue to harm our people and economy. As part of its investigation, members of the committee travelled to Ghana in 2020 to get firsthand information on APM terminals’ operation in Ghana, as compared to its activities in Liberia.
