The apparent honeymoon between the present government and ex-officials of the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf led regime seems to be taking another twist for the worst.
This appears to be so as the Weah regime now seeks appointment letters and certificates of commissioning from officials who are currently serving their tenures under the Weah administration.
On Tuesday February 6, a directive issued by President George Manneh Weah ordered all officials of Government occupying tenured positions to submit to the Office of the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs their letters of appointment and Certificate of commissioning on or before Friday, February 9, 2018.
The directive was issued in an official circular dated February 5, 2018 and signed by the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Chief of Staff to the President, Nathaniel F. McGill.
It is not clear what the Weah – led administration intends to do with these documents demanded, but it could be that the lack of the letters of appointment and certificates of commissioning could have impact on the job of those who may still be holding onto offices if they were not certificated by the Sirleaf – led administration after their appointment.
