The Special Presidential Taskforce setup by the Liberian Government to collect all official vehicles in the possession of former officials last Friday strengthened its authority by seizing the senior Aide de Camp to the former Liberian leader, ex-president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf assigned vehicle (Nissan Patrol Jeep) while comfortably taken his ride.

Major General Jeremiah Hinneh wile ridding around the city encountered members of the Taskforce who demanded that he get down from his vehicle, noting that his assigned vehicle was an official vehicle and therefore it was needed to be impounded.

This move by the Taskforce even though a directive by the Liberian leader, President George Weah drew the attention of dozens of onlookers as the General politely handover the keys of the vehicle to members of the taskforce.

Early this year, the Liberian leader, President George Manneh Weah constituted a Special Presidential Task Force to retrieve all government-owned vehicles still in the possession of former government officials.

President Weah has mandated the former officials to submit within two weeks the vehicles to the Special Presidential Task Force, an Executive Mansion release said late last night.

Those named to the Task Force are Benedict E.E. Reeves, Chair, with other members including Patrick Sudue, Inspector General of Police, Sam Worzie, Garmondeh Glaydor, Isaiah T. Harris, Fleet Specialist and Robena L. Brown.

According to the release, President Weah has also directed that all former officials who had purportedly purchased vehicles from the General Services Agency (GSA) to submit these vehicles to the Special Task Force for verification.

President Weah further directed that the vehicles should be submitted to the Special Presidential Task Force on the Executive Mansion grounds.
