Several women groupings in Gbarnga including the Muslim and Christian Communities have joined suspended Bong County Superintendent Esther Nyamah Walker to appeal to President George Manneh Weah to reinstate Madam Walker.
Superintendent Walker was suspended by President Weah a day after a leaked audio went viral on social media and on some radio stations here in which the official was heard talking lengthily about how Finance Minister Samuel Tweah, Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee and Minister of State Nathaneil McGill were allegedly running President Weah’s government.
She joined hundreds of rural women headed by the Bong County Village Saving Loan Association to appeal to the president for her reinstatement as superintendent, barely four months after she faced President Weah’s wrath.
In a leaked recording, Superintendent Walker, a close associate of Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor, was also heard revealing to unknown individuals that she was confronted by McGill and Tweh that Madam Taylor and Bong County District #3 Rep. Marvin Cole were out to overthrow President Weah.
The appeal was done through Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf.
A member of the Village Saving Loan Association FatuBaynay says they regret the situation, pleading with President Weah to see reason to reinstate Madam Walker.
She reminds Minister Sirleaf that President Weah is not just a president but also a father for all Liberians and must have mercy on the suspended superintendent.
According to her, Madam Walker has over the past time worked immensely for the people of Bong County, lamenting that it will not be fine to sack her.
The Muslim Community represented by some officials, also joined in begging the president for Madam Walker’s reinstatement.
Alieu Abu Siakor, a member of the Community says President Weah did not make a misstate to appoint Madam Walker because she serves impartiality.
Meanwhile Suspended Superintendent Walker expresses serious regret and promises not to ever have such situation repeated.
Madam Walker pledges her commitment to always working for the people of the County when reinstated to government’s Pro – Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.
For his part, Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf promises to extend the message to President Weah, telling the women that he strongly believes that the President will accept the appeals.
According to him, government officials just have to accept the appeals of Madam Walker because she has shown high level of commitment of her willingness to support the current government.By Joseph Titus Yekeryan in Bong–Edited by Winston W. Parley
