The Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia (PATEL) says it has voted out its acting national chairman for gross violation, and failure to avail himself for conference.
PATEL says in a release issued Thursday, 19 October under the signature of Secretary General and approve by its national chairman Dominic Nimely that the executive members of the group wish to inform the public that Mr. Presley Tehweh is no longer chairman of the organization as of August 11, 2017.
According to PATEL, the action to vote out their acting chairman was agreed upon by a majority vote in a board meeting of the incorporator,
executive and county coordinator of the organization, and it was based on some reasons.
The group is alleging dictatorial, negative behavior, creating irreparable rift that cause disenfranchisement to several incorporators, and executive members of the organization.
PATEL says another reason for the chairman’s dismissal was the lack of ability to properly structure the organization to systematically and adequately function as an entity, and spending the organization’s
funds without any approval from members of the organization.
The group says every time it makes effort to discuss issue relating to the growth of the organization; Mr. Presley Tehweh will not want to sit and listen. Due to his alleged action, PATEL says majority members of the organization during its recent meeting decided to vote out its former chairman.
The group also adds that out of the many allegations made against the former chairman, he allegedly refused to adhere to [demands] of the board and executives of the organization.
Meanwhile, PATEL narrates that given the nature of the situation that unfolded, the former chairman has resolved to accuse some members of the organization for forgery as well as taking a lawsuit to place an injunction on the activities of the organization, and its executive members.
But PATEL clarifies here that the information reported in few local dailies including the New Republic, Concord Times, and the Daily Observer newspapers that one of its members Mr. Caesar Morris was jail is false.
The group says those stories reported about Mr. Morris were baseless, as well as misleading, and at the same time PATEL requests that those media institutions grant the organization a platform where they can give out the proper information concerning the matter.–Press release
