Famous Baptist Prelate Rev. Samuel Reeves has described the Sabu Unit security squad of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government of President George Manneh Weah as a ‘terrorist group’.
Rev. Reeves, the Senior Pastor of the historic Providence Baptist Church located on Ashmun Street in Monrovia, spoke Sunday when he delivered his sermon.
The Providence Baptist Church is regarded as the place where the Declaration of Independence of Liberia was signed on July 26, 1847.
According to Rev. Reeves, members of the Sabu Unit are in the constant habit of terrorizing citizens in the communities.
The clergyman maintained that the group continues to make things worse for citizens in Liberia, instead of helping to improve the country’s security sector. Speaking on the theme, “God has a plan” with text taken from the books of Esther 6:1-14; and Romans 8:28-29, Rev. Reeves maintained that even the groups calling itself the Council of Patriots (COP), and the Independent Council of Patriots (ICOP) cannot solve the numerous problems confronting Liberians.
“I stopped by to let you that the COP nor the ICOP can’t solve our problem; listen to me, the INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY/THE IMF – they are trying – they gave us US$23M- that allow the banks to remain open and some people got some pay during the Christmas season – but, they will not solve our problem,” he stated.
Rev. Reeves maintained: “The Sabu Unit is a terrorist group. They are going from community to community terrorizing our people. They are only making things worse and they cannot solve the problems that we find ourselves in”.
The Sabu Unit came surfaced following the inception of the CDC government. Rev. Reeves renewed calls for the dismissal of Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweah in the wake of a declining economy.
According to him, most of those currently serving in government, including Minister Tweah need to be substituted by President Weah.
He maintained that this New Year, the Liberian Chief Executive must strategically and tactically ensure that non-performing or misplaced officials are either dismissed or replaced to help solve some of the mountainous challenges facing Liberia and vast majority of its citizens.
Rev. Reeves added: “The team is simply not winning and you as head coach need to act both tactically and strategically. Today, I am calling on the team to resign and give the coach a chance to start all over. Give the coach the space to find new players for the team for the good of the nation – I stopped by to let you know that this year, we will see the remarkable providence of God in the midst of our mess – I stopped by to let you know that God Has A Plan”.
Rev. Reeves informed his congregation that despite the economic woes and others challenges they are encountering; they should always have in mind that God has a plan for their respective lives.
