  • ‘I Was Fired Because I Didn’t Allow Dishonesty’

    first_imgThe recently dismissed Nimba County Assistant Superintendent for Development, Teeko Toezoy Yorlay, has attributed his removal to what he described as his refusal to accept dishonesty and being used to facilitate the pillaging of the county’s resources.Mr. Yorlay was few weeks ago dismissed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf based on a recommendation from Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly, days after the House of Representatives declared a ‘vote of no confidence’ in the leadership of the county.The Plenary decision relative to the ‘vote of no confidence’ was taken when Mr. Yorlay and his former boss, Superintendent Fong Gamaie Zuagele appeared before that body to respond to allegations contained in a letter from Nimba Electoral District #9 Representative Richard Matenokay Tingben.Rep. Tingben alleged that the county local leadership is “disrespectful and arrogant and was undermining development.”During the hearing into the allegation, which was attended by Minister Dukuly, members of the Nimba Legislative Caucus stated that Mr. Yorlay had publicly referred to them (Representatives) as ‘cockroaches’ that are bent on prowling the county’s resources.But Yorlay, in a statement released recently, brushed aside the charges of ‘disrespect’ leveled against him and said, “I was fired because I did not allow dishonesty, corruption, as the norm to go on in Nimba County as part of the system.”Teeko: “I have now accepted the fact that I am not in the Nimba County Administration to stop people’s whatever operations, because I could not accept to be used, misused and abused as an instrument to facilitate pillaging of the already limited county resources.”Yorlay indicated that he is glad that the County Legislative Caucus did not accuse him of any wrong doing, “but said I was dismissed for not stealing from the Nimba people.”“I was dismissed because of boldface and inflated lies. I had problem with some of our lawmakers when I felt that as Assistant Superintendent for Development, and not Assistant Superintendent for Underdevelopment, when acts of transferring County Development Fund (CDF) into Pocket Development Fund (PDF), were being exhibited.  This was an act that I could not countenance or tolerate,” Mr. Yorlay maintained.He noted that it was good for him to say this, “but when I kept the feet of contractors to the fire with consistency and persistency to complete projects for which they had been paid money, I was celebrated by many Nimbaians, including some lawmakers. When my own office staffers had to be incarcerated on my orders to ensure that projects they had received money for before I took office needed to have been completed by them, I was again celebrated by many Nimbaians, including our some of the lawmakers.”He reemphasized that all of the time, he was being celebrated that the funds involved were below US$100,000, but when an officer of the county used on a single day allotting US$300,000 to buy over 68,000 gallons of fuel, which that person could not report even 1,000 gallons, and used US$59,000 for spare parts just to report that the parts were dropping on the way to Nimba, and “we chose to take serious administrative action.  That is when I was declared disrespectful and satanic.”“But this too is Nimba—a county where the lawmakers feel that speaking against graft, waste and abuse can only be rewarded with lies leading to dismissal. This is the new strategy of how Nimba will be built. The tactics is to weed out people who detest graft, waste and abuse while pillaging of the recourses is given a green card to burgeon and Nimba will thereafter grow,” former Development Superintendent Yorlay wrote.Regarding allegations that he referred to lawmakers as cockroaches, he explained that as antecedent to the appearance of his former boss, Supt. Zuagele, and me at the Plenary of the House of Representatives, I was asked by a journalist at Radio Saclepea as to whether we will be freed from the seven-count allegations levied against us by the Nimba Legislative Caucus. I responded this way: “If our Lawmakers complained us to their fellow lawmakers and they and their colleagues will serve as complainants, jurors and the judges on this particular case, I doubt seriously as to whether we will be freed as it is said that cockroaches can never be found innocent in the midst of the fools”. This is how I used the word ‘cockroaches’ but not to intentionally insult the county’s elected officials.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Five Incumbents Lose House Seats in Bong County

    first_imgFive incumbent lawmakers, including Rep. George Mulbah are poised to be unseated in Bong CountyPreliminary results coming in from polling centers across Bong County show that five incumbent lawmakers will lose their seats.Out of the seven incumbent lawmakers, only two are retaining their seats.The two are electoral District #2 lawmaker Prince Moye of Unity Party (UP) and District # 5 lawmaker Edward Karfiah of the People’s Unification Party (PUP).Rep. Moye has led overwhelmingly at almost 95 percent of the polling centers in the district while Rep. Karfiah is freewheeling to victory after 90 percent of the results from polling centers in his district ahead of his closest contender, human rights activist and Independent candidate Silas Siakor.A factor that is proving decisive is first-time voters, who constituted the vast majority of young voters and who did not follow the old history of politics in the county while turning out in their numbers to vote.In electoral District #1, the People’s Unification Party candidate Tokpa Mulbah is struggling behind businessman and All Liberian Party candidate Albert Hills, Jr.From tallied votes so far, Hills is leading his closest contender, Independent candidate E. Richard Dillon, by 500 votes.In District #3, the incumbent, Rep. George Sylvester Mulbah, who is seeking his third term, is losing to former Gbarnga City Mayor Josiah Marvin Cole of the Coalition for Democratic Change.Rep. Mulbah could not repeat the overwhelming votes he secured in 2011, when he earned 89.2 percent of the votes.He was one of three lawmakers from Bong County attempting to return to the Capitol for a third term.One factor that is responsible for Rep. Mulbah’s defeat is his alleged involvement in the sacking of former Gbarnga City Mayor Josiah Marvin Cole. Rep. Mulbah has repeatedly denied his involvement and has told the citizens that he did not know anything about Cole’s dismissal, but his denial did not sit well with voters, who petitioned Cole to contest against Mulbah.Cole was dismissed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for what the President called “unlawful” demolition of structures in Gbarnga. “Mulbah and Moye were not involved in the dismissal of Marvin Cole; the President took the decision because Cole violated international law. Forced eviction is prohibited under international law,”said one of the contestants in electoral District # 3, Mr. Edward Emmanuel Gboe.The United Nations Declaration on Forced Eviction fact sheet No. 25 in 2014 defined forced eviction as “The permanent or temporary removal against the will of individuals, families and/or communities from the homes or land which they occupy without the provision of, and access to, appropriate forms of legal or other protection,” he said.Next to Cole is the former executive secretary general of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), Edward Gboe.Gboe put up a strong fight, mainly in the rural areas of the district, but fell short of the votes in Gbarnga when compared to the number Cole accumulated.Another incumbent who might not return to the Capitol Building is District #4 Rep. Lester Paye of the Alternative National Congress (ANC).District #4 is divided into two administrative districts, Panta and Zota. The incumbent hails from Panta District, where he overwhelmingly won but performed poorly in Zota District, where his failure to provide an ambulance for the district threatened his re-election.The race in District # 4 was seen as a political fight between the two administrative districts; and Robert Womba, chairman of Unity Party in Bong County, became the consensus candidate to citizens of Zota District.Out of the 11,400 registered voters in the district, Womba won 75 percent of the votes and put up a strong challenge in some parts of Panta District.In District #6, the incumbent, Adam Bill Corneh, could be heading out after his gloomy showing from the results so far. It was a tight race between former Bong County superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy of the Coalition of Liberia’s Progress and Independent candidate Moima Briggs-Mensah. Provisional results are putting Briggs-Mensah ahead of Polson-Mappy.In District #7, there is an incredibly narrow 64-vote margin between the Liberty Party candidate Papa Kolleh and Coalition of Liberia’s Progress candidate, former Deputy Minister of Information, Andrew Tehmeh. Kolleh leads with who leads with 3791 (17.5%), while Temeh trails close behind with 3727, of the (17.2%). Regardless, the total votes tallied so far show that the incumbent lawmaker, Corpu Barclay of the Unity Party, has been given the boot by citizens of the district.The poor performance of incumbent lawmakers from Bong County reaped decisive blow to themselves at the ballot and serves as a warning for other incumbents.The October 10 polling results could serve as a huge lesson to incoming lawmakers. A similar situation occurred during the 2014 special senatorial election where only two out of 15 senators nationwide were re-elected.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Delays, flight cancellations rock CJIA

On Monday evening, Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson, who is responsible for transport, when contacted stated that flights continue to depart the CJIA, but at a “slow pace” as authorities were forced to do manual check-in, which has been leading to delays.Meanwhile, GTT in a statement said the cable consortium has been working tirelessly to restore service, the company has redundant infrastructure and is working with the airline reservation management system, SITA, to migrate to redundant routes.“GTT would like to reassure customers that the Internet infrastructure is working well via the redundant paths,” the statement read.Captain Gerry Gouveia confirmed that Dynamic Airways cancelled one of its flights early Monday because of the disruption. He stated that the airline’s passengers were informed of the cancellation early and were told to check-in today.He also explained that InselAir cancelled its flight because the crew time expired.

  • HEARTBREAK FOR COLEMAN AS CONTROVERSIAL GOAL ENDS WEMBLEY DREAM

    first_imgThere was heartbreak for Seamus Coleman tonight as a controversial goal turned the tide for Manchester City in their league cup semi-final clash at the Etihad Stadium.Everton went into the game leading 2-1 from their first-leg win at Goodison Park, a fortnight ago. Ross Barkley’s stunning goal after eighteen minutes of the second-leg tonight stunned City – which put Everton 1-0 up on the night, and 3-1 on aggregate.City hit back five minutes later through Fernandinho – but Everton looked dangerous on the counter-attack.This game was turned on its head on seventy minutes Raheem Sterling crossed for Kevin De Bruyne to level.However, replays clearly showed that the ball was out of play when Sterling crossed and the goal should never have stood. To make matters worse Sergio Aguero scored a stunning third for City which ultimately sent them through to the final at Wembley next month.Everton were quite rightly furious at the final whistle and an angry Coleman remonstrated with officials at the final whistle. HEARTBREAK FOR COLEMAN AS CONTROVERSIAL GOAL ENDS WEMBLEY DREAM was last modified: January 27th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:evertonMan Cityseamus colemansoccerlast_img read more
