Mr. Robert Allen Sirleaf, a son of former Liberian President Ellen Johnson- Sirleaf, contested the 2014 Special Senatorial Election, but was defeated by current Liberian President George Manneh Weah at the polls.
Gay is a term that primarily refers to homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual. The term was originally used to mean “carefree”, or “bright and showy”.
Like the previous, who then answered in the negative when quizzed by journalists whether he was a gay, the Montserrado County Senator also said he is not a gay, rubbishing incessant claims that he is a gay.
Appearing on the OK FM Morning Ride in Monrovia on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, Senator Dillon asserted that those who have spread and continued with such “propagandas” against him have no issue to discuss.
The controversial Montserrado County lawmaker further asserted that while he is not a perfect being, he believes in what the Bible teaches. “I have heard people calling me like that several times, but I think it is so because they don’t have any tangible issue against me,” he averred.
“They don’t have issue against me so they say I am a gay. Because they don’t have issue so they place a big building from Nigeria on facebook and say I am building a big house in Johnsonville. Because they don’t have issue so they talk about my tied-tongue. They don’t have issue so they talk about my dry-legs. Absolutely no issue,” he intoned.
Despite what he termed as negative propagandas, the opposition Liberty Party (LP) Vice Chairman for Political Affairs bragged that he stands the best chance of recapturing the county come 2020 Special Senatorial Election slated for December this year.
However, he was quick to point out that,: “The things we do will determine whether the people want us to remain in office or not.” Dillon, who has been overly vocal on the workings of the Legislature and had been threatened with series of suspensions and expulsions, once again, hit out at the Legislature, claiming that the both Houses are spineless.
Dillon, also a strong critic of President Weah and his Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC)-led Government maintained that the Legislature is spineless to a point that it cannot stand against what he described as a “dry-face” State of Emergency(SOE) to revoke it.
“The leadership lacks the spine to boldly write the President to tell him that we did not reach the two/thirds majority required by law for both Houses for the approval so it is revoked by law. The leaderships of both the Liberian Senate and House of Representatives are spineless, the House is even worse,” he, among other things, added.
