Commerce Minister Amin Modad accused of unilaterally increasing rice prices without President Boakai’s approval


The recent controversy surrounding the price of rice in Liberia has brought to light accusations against Commerce Minister Amin Modad. It is alleged that Minister Modad unilaterally increased the price of rice without the approval of President Boakai, raising questions about his loyalty to the government and the well-being of the people.

Calls from citizens for further measures to be taken against Minister Modad have intensified, with accusations of constitutional violations and prioritizing business profits over the welfare of the people.

The situation remains tense as the government navigates through this controversy, with many watching closely to see how it will be addressed. Stay tuned for further updates on this developing story.
