“Director Garwo unilaterally took unto himself the authority to stall movement of several peaceful citizens when he parked his vehicle behind theirs, switched off his phone and walked away unruly, hindering movement for several hours. These citizens had to make several phone calls and engagements to no avail as he was nowhere to be found after carrying out his action, on grounds he had disagreements with someone in that vicinity,” Mayor Koijee.
Mayor Koijee further apologized to the affected citizens whose activities were halted by Garwo’s disorderly action and misuse of power.

Everyone must be accorded due respect no matter who they are, stand for or status; this is the Liberia we have always yearned for”, Mayor Koijee noted.
