New, Incumbent appointees Struggle for Power in Bassa

first_imgThe appointment of new local leaders in the various districts of Grand Bassa County has resulted in a power struggle between the newly appointed and the incumbents, who are refusing to relinquish their respective offices/positions. Those replaced included Diaplae Statutory District #1 Superintendent Samuel Karmenjay, who was replaced by Worr Administrative District Commissioner, Samuel Moore; Edward L. Beyan replaces Commissioner Oretha Taya of Hoe Barn Township in District #2; Peter Naleh replaces CommissionerJeremiah Gardee of Gorblee Administrative District #3 ‘A’; and James Kannan, who replaces Commissioner James Taylue of Blezee Administrative District #3 ‘B’.Ozinga Gborhwie replaces Commissioner Mathew Gibson of Dogbarn Glaydor Administrative District #4, while Daniel Dayougar, replaces Commissioner David Gborgar of Vambo Township in District #2 ‘A’; Othello Russell replaces Commissioner Agnes Artis of Lloydsville Township in District #1, but a former District #1 lawmaker, Austin Spiller, replaces former Edina City Mayor Etweda Cooper and former Grand Bassa County superintendent. In separate interviews with this newspaper, the incumbents said that they will not give up their offices to the incoming officials because the office of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has not informed them of their replacement.“The central government has not informed us via any genuine communication as to whether we have been relieved of our respective posts,” the replaced officials claimed.Therefore, they vowed to remain in their various offices “until the President can officially write us and state the reasons for our dismissal or replacement.”However, when contacted for verification, Grand Bassa County Information Officer Eddie Williams told this newspaper that the replacement of the local leaders was done by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf through a recent communication.He said Superintendent J. Levi Demman only implemented the President’s pronouncement, which was not his own, as it has been widely speculated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
