Speaking Friday at the close of a two-day Cabinet Retreat held in Buchanan Grand Bassa County, Liberian leader President George Manneh Weah has vowed to suspend or dismiss junior officials of government who discuss their bosses on radio or in public gatherings.
President Weah said that government is not run on the radio or in public gatherings, but rather at government settings, and warned those involved in such acts to desist immediately.
“It is at such meetings that we express our grievances and/or disagree with one another and not in the public; those of you involved in such unethical and unprofessional behavior will bear the consequences of your actions,” President Weah said.
“Your boss has the power to employ and not you; he is under obligation to ensure he employs the best brains to move the government’s agenda forward. Until he or she delegates such task to you to execute, he is responsible to make decisions on behalf of the entity,” the Liberian Chief Executive advised.
He is at the same time cautioning members of his cabinet, especially assistant ministers, to submit themselves to the workings of the government by respecting their bosses, noting, “Your boss is your boss.”
