Following media report last week that  the Chief Executive Officer of Liberia, President  Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has vowed to carry out a major reshuffle in her government, many of those holding cabinet positions are said to be in worry wondering as to whether they will targeted by the pending action on the part of their boss.

A local daily quoting sources closed to the office of the Liberian leader also reported that the President  is expected to make some major changes in the security sector, Ministries of Transport, Public Works, Lands, Mines and Energy  to get ongoing projects completed as her regime nears end

According to the FPA some of these changes will affect security sector involving the Liberian National Police and the Ministry of Transport. Changes are also said to be contemplated at Public Works and the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy.

However, heads and their deputies of those areas to be affected are reportedly doing all in their powders to do their last chopping at their respective institutions; a situation which not properly checked will lead some of those institutions to imminent bankruptcy.

A source at one of the Ministries which is expected to be affected by the pending presidential reshuffle hinted our staff by saying, “My boss is doing his last chopping, can you imagine he has just transferred huge sum of money to his wife and children in the United States,” the source who preferred not to be named told our staff following media report of the President’s reshuffle in her Government.

Some ordinary Liberians who spoke to our staff expressed danger in the pending reshuffle  (Even though not confirm) that those who will be caught in the President’s stance to reshuffle her cabinet should face the General Auditing Commission (GAC) in order to clear themselves of any wrong doing while serving their respective positions.

According to sources, some of those institutions that are expected to be affected by the would be President Ellen Johnson Sirlea’s reshuffle exercise have over the years been having some financial and administrative pitfalls, a situation which, according to our sources has created serious concern in the executive.

“You know each time such news of reshuffle in Government leak to the public, the President will always change her gear by not carry out such. I hope this time she will do it,” our source from one of the Ministries expected to be affected of this would changes said.
