Bong Supt. Hails Pres. Weah for Reinstatement

Bong County Superintendent Esther Nyamah Walker has hailed President Dr. George Manneh Weah for the confidence reposed in her that led to her reinstatement, D. Patrick Tokpah

Superintended Walker was suspended by President Weah a day after a leaked audio went viral on the social media and on some radio stations in Liberia.

In the leaked recording, Superintendent Walker, a close associate of Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor was heard revealing to unknown individuals that she was confronted by the Minster of State for Presidential Affairs Nathaniel McGill and Finance Minister Samuel Tweh that VP Taylor and Bong County District #3 Representative Marvin Cole were out to assassinate President Weah.

Prior to the reinstatement by the Liberian leader, several women groupings in Gbarnga including the Muslim and Christian Communities joined Superintendent Walker to appeal to President Weah for her reinstatement through Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf.

A member of the Village Saving Loan Association, Fatu Baynay at that ceremony said, they regretted the situation but President Weah should see reason to reinstate Madam Walker.

According to her, Madam Walker over the past immensely worked for the people of the County and letting her to step aside will not be fine.

Even though the Muslim community was not invited, but it was represented by some officials who joined their voices to appeal to the President.

Aleu Abu Siakor, a member of the Community said President Weah did not make a misstate to appoint Madam Walker because she serves with impartiality.

For his part, Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf during the occasion, promised to extend the message to President Weah and told the women that he strongly believes that the President will accept the appeals.

According to him, they, as government officials, just have to accept the appeals of Madam Walker because she has shown high level of commitment of her willingness to support the current government.

Madam Walker, speaking in an interview with this Paper recently after her thanksgiving mass at the Holy Spirit Cathedral in Gbarnga, said she sees her reinstatement as a recall to serve the people of Bong County.

She at the same time said her return to the county as chief administrator, the need to redouble her efforts in serving the citizens under the pro-poor government is a must.

Madam Walker also described her suspension as a way of getting new inspiration and strength to properly serve her people and state.

She said the president deserves all rights to penalize his appointees whenever they go wrong.

Madam Walker also used the occasion to call on members of the opposition block to discontinue insulting government officials especially the president and always have dialogue when the need arises.

She further used the medium to reaffirm her commitment to always work for the people of the County as reinstated which will promote the government’s pro poor agenda for prosperity and development.
