Senator Johnson went on by saying, ” the man he wants to replace (Justice Nagbe), who is currently undergoing treatment in Ghana, has been sick for pretty close to a year, and should have been replaced a long time ago by President Weah”.

The longest serving Nimba Senator among many other things accused President Weah and his CDC government of making several employments in all sectors of the government since the transition was set up by the ruling CDC government and the incoming government of the Unity Party (UP).

Senator Johnson said the CDC government is stockpiling the government payroll so as to over-burden the incoming government. He said, “thousands of people have been added to the government payroll, so when the new government comes in and decides to have a reduction on the government payroll, then they will say that’s witch-hunting”.
