“I Made Big Mistake”… PYJ Writes Senator Karnga-Lawrence

by newsmanager

MONROVIA: Nimba County’s charismatic Senator and ‘Political Godfather,’ Prince Yormie Johnson, has formally written Grand Bassa County Senator, Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, apologizing for statements he (Senator Johnson) made against Nyonblee via Spoon-Talk, a popular radio talk show in Monrovia about a night ago.

In the letter published via his official Facebook page, Senator Johnson extended his sincere apology to Senator Karnga-Lawrence, who he said, is his “daughter and colleague.”
PYJ: “Senator Karnga-Lawrence and I are the two longest serving Senators at the Liberian Senate currently, and we shared our own bond in terms of consulting one another on national issues that have surfaced on the floor of the Liberian senate.”

“During our time of service to this nation, she has been very respectful of me and the both of us have an excellent and cordial working relationship. She normally calls me Daddy while I consider her a daughter, and so, my out outburst last night on Spoon Network should be in no way considered as an attack on her,” said Senator Johnson who is also founder of the Movement for Reconstruction and Development (MRD),” a political party established by the Nimba County Senator and former warlord.

UP’s Standard Bearer, Ambassador Joseph Nyuma Boakai, on 28, April, 2023, selected Jeremiah Kpan Koung, political leader of the Movement for Reconstruction and Development (MRD), a political party established by Senator PYJ. At the moment, PYJ plays advisory role in the MRD.
The Nimba County Senator, on his Facebook page, did not give detail of his outburst against Senator Karnga-Lawrence last night but said: “My action was missed directed. I shouldn’t have led an attack on another opposition but again, I am just a human, and it is quite important to mention here that it was triggered by another panelist on the spoon show. Howbeit, I take responsibility and have absolutely no justification for my action.”

PYJ: “Our generation including Unity Party (UP) Standard Bearer Joseph Boakai will soon be leaving the political stage, this is why I have retreated from the mainstream of politics to play a more advisory role and give the younger generation the opportunity to serve. Today I come humble as one of the biggest Elders of the land in the opposition to say sorry for my action last evening. This was a big mistake on my part, and again I’m sorry for it,” senator Johnson emphasized.
According to Senator Johnson, “apologizing isn’t enough, upon this post on my official Facebook page, I will immediately place a call to my daughter,” the Senator said on his official Facebook page.
When this paper contacted the Nimba County Senator yesterday via a mobile phone to confirm or deny the Facebook Post, and to say whether or not he has called Senator Karnga-Lawrence, the Nimba County Senator told this paper: “No question; No answer.”
It may be recalled that UP Standard Bearer, Ambassador Joseph Nyumah Boakai, on 28, April, 2023, named Nimba County Senator, Jeremiah Kpan Koung, political leader of the Movement for reconstruction and Development (MRD), a political party established by Senator PYJ.
Koung was chosen as Boakai’s running mate for the October 10, Presidential and Legislative elections.
Prior to naming Jeremiah Kpan Koung, alias, “JKK,” as running mate, the Liberian nation and social media were awash with speculations that the UP Standard Bearer was eying incumbent Grand Bassa County Senator, Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, for selection as his (Boakai’s) running mate.
Other personalities whose names were said to have been forwarded to Boakai for selection of his running mate included Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, and Henry P. Costa.
There were also popular suggestions that Boakai and the political leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander Benedict Cummings (ABC) would have made a good ticket to make incumbent President Weah one-term President.
