The campaign manager for Montserrado County District #12 representative – elect Mr. Wisdom P. Oghogho has dismissed the death news of his boss Dr. George Beyan Samah.
Speaking on Tuesday, 12 December to the NewDawn via mobile phone, Mr. Oghogho said Dr. Samah is okay and nothing is wronged with the representative – elect.
Mr. Oghogho calls the news of his bosses’ alleged death “fake and unbelievable.” His reaction comes after the alleged death news of Dr. Samah was spread in the district on Sunday, 10 December. The alleged death news left some residents in tears and in a sorrowful mood.
Dr. Samah’s campaign manager says some bad people are in the habit of spreading fake news about good people, adding that Dr. Samah is healthy and moving very strong. Mr. Oghogho claims that Dr. Samah’s opposition are allegedly spreading his death news, but he fails to say who are the oppositions.
He argues that the same Sunday on which rumors were circulating that Dr. Samah had died, he (Oghogho) and the Rep. – Elect were together after service. He calls on those spreading such fake news to stop and think on something else to do.
“People came to the home of Dr. Samah crying, only to find him sitting with some members of the Friends of Samah”, he adds. He says on Monday, 11 December, Dr. Samah was taken to some parts of the district for residence to see him. According to Mr. Oghogho, residents greeted Dr. Samah with joy, touching him to know whether he was not a ghost.
Dr. Samah was seen dancing as he passed through the Kesselley Boulevard Community and others communities. Some of his supporters were seen thanking God for their political leader’s life.
“They are now shame, he is alive, no bye- election”, Dr. Samah’s supporters chanted in celebrations. When this paper asked some residence about the death news of Dr. Samah, some say they are surprised, while some point fingers to some opposition for the alleged death news.
