The president of the Commercial Motorcyclists Union of Liberia, Abraham Nyumah Tumbey, said cyclists are not enemies of the state and should therefore be treated as people who are capable of transforming the country.
Mr. Tumbey spoke at the Union’s office in Paynesville yesterday where he assured the LNP’s Deputy Director Abe Kromah that motorcyclists are prepared to work in good faith for the forward movement of the country.
“As we appreciate your reappointment to the LNP, we seek your collaboration in the best interest of our country,” Tumbey told Director Kromah.
Mr. Tumbey continued: “Motorcyclists of today are far different from those of yesterday as they now understand the consequences of bad actions on the nation and on their lives.”
He assured the LNP of his leadership’s commitment to support the efforts of government and every stakeholder in maintaining the peace.
“Our Union, which is not a Monrovia union, is engaging all motorcyclists across the country not only get membership, but to be a part of programs that will help them improve their understanding of safety and obeying the rule of law,” Tumbey added.
In response, Director Kromah promised to peacefully work with motorcyclists if the Senate confirms him.
Kromah, who at one time served in the same position of Police Deputy Director for Operations, was recently reappointed to the same post by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. He promised to among other things, infuse a new spirit, of peaceful coexistence, in his day to day interactions with the public.
