His unwavering quest to see the rights of all Liberians protected under the laws of the country landed him in trouble more than twice. He was also jailed by the House of Representatives for exposing alleged bribery among some Members of that august body. He remained steadfast notwithstanding.
Again, in 2010, Mr. Dillon was “unlawfully suspended” for three months without pay by the leadership of the Liberian Senate at the time for exposing alleged acts of corruption in the Senate, particular in the Office of former Maryland County Senator John Ballout.
These strides have however not gone unnoticed as the Youth Are Partners for Empowerment International (YAPE) in collaboration with its US-based Partner, Shirley Ann Sullivan Educational Foundation with support from Universal Giving and other local and International Partners presented Mr. Dillon with a “Human Rights Advocate” award on February 14, 2016 at a program marking the 2016 Exhibition & Awards Night of the "One Billion Women & Girls Campaign" in Monrovia.
Other Award Recipients were: Hon Saah H. Joseph in appreciation and recognition of his heroic fight against EBOLA, Sen. Jewel Howard-Taylor in recognition of role and fight for women and girls empowerment, Child Nobel Laureate Amb Abraham Keita as "CHILD RIGHTS ADVOCATE" and Augustine S. M. Tamba, President of the Federation of Liberian Youth (FLY), amongst others.
In remarks, Mr. Dillon reminded President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf about a commitment she made during her 2015 Annual Message to provide financial subsidies to every girl child enrolled in academic school in Liberia, and called upon her to make good said commitment.
The Liberty Party strongman said the Award has strengthened his resolve to continue in the fight for social justice, human rights protection and freedoms for all.
