GNN has gathered that recent suspension of two deputies at the National Bureau of Concession (NBC) for ‘time indefinite’  for their administrative misconduct at the entity has been extoled by dozens of Liberians who spoke to our reporter, but further urged him to do more if his government is to regain its ‘lost image’.

According to the Executive Mansion website last week Friday, August 2, 2019, the Liberian leader suspended Daddy Gibson, Deputy Director General for Administration and Nathaniel Bracewell, Deputy Director General for Concession at the National Bureau of Concession are suspended for Administrative misconduct.

The Director General of the NBC, Mr. Gregory O.W. Coleman was at the center of a major storm which escalated into a physical altercation with two of his deputies, who are said to be die-hard members of the ruling party, as a result of this attack, the NBC boss had to be smuggled out of his office through the backdoor by way of a rarely-used gate of the compound of the Bureau as the main entrance and exit had been blocked to avoid the attack from his two deputies.

Speaking on the issue, John Q. Freeman, a resident of Monrovia said the decision taken by the Liberian leader was in the right direction; this will avoid people who claiming to be die-hard partisans of the ruling CDC to stop intimidating  who are not, by threatening their lives and doing other harmful things to them. This President needs to go beyond,” Freeman told the GNN in an exclusive interview.

For Conform Sampson Davies of New Kru Town, Bushrod Island, also lauded President Weah for his recent move, adding, “His decision has made me proud, he stood like a leader who believes that he is President for all and not only for the CDC partisans.”

However, the Ministry of Justice in a statement last week disclosed it has received a complaint of threats, physical attack and felonious restraint file by the Director General of the National Bureau of Concessions, Hon. Gregory O.W. Coleman, and further directed the Liberia National Police to investigate the incident and report its findings the soonest.

This directive by the Justice Ministry has also been lauded by many who spoke to the GNN, noting that the police will be proactive in its investigation to bring to book those who will be liable of such.
