Kanio Gbala Resigns from LACC -To focus on Weah’s Re-election bid

MONROVIA: For finding it incompatible to serve in his official capacity at the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and at the same time actively involved in campaigning for the re-election bid of President George Manneh Weah, Mr. Bai Kanio Gbala has tendered in his letter of resignation from LACC where he currently serves as the Vice Chairman effective July 31, 2023.

In his letter of resignation communicated to President Weah dated July 1, 2023, Gbala said he has the desire to play a more active and meaningful role in campaigning for the President and saw his position as a hindrance to the process.

“Based on my abiding faith in your ability to lead the Liberian nation down a path of prosperity and my deepest interest to play a more active and meaningful role in your 2023 re-election efforts, I am herewith resigning from the post of Vice Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission.

“I am resigning because my desire to serve as a chief campaigner for your 2023 Presidential bid proves incompatible with my duties as a commissioner at the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission”, Gbala said.

Mr. Gbala, who is also a legal practitioner and lecturer at the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law, University of Liberia has for a long time been a known face among committed members of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and has been visible in the current campaign to give the President his desire for a second term in the pending 2023 general election where he is expected to face stiff opposition from some leading candidates in the race.
