Political Witch Hunt?
Reports reaching The Monrovia Times says the Compliance Manager position at the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company (LPRC) has been rendered nonessential to the entity.
The position which was headed by Amos Tweh, an executive of former governing Unity Party has been declared redundant for the first time since the establishment of the institution.
The Compliance Manager position which is said to be vital to the operation of the LPRC was reportedly rendered unnecessary due to administrative reasons. Amos Tweh, a staunch critic of the Weah administration just returned from studies in the United Kingdom.
Both Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor and CDC’s Chairman Mulbah are on record of opposing Non-CDCIANS from becoming a part of the Pro-Poor Government if they do not align themselves with the party.
Morlu in a gathering at the CDC headquarters said:
“Those who will not join the CDC, the party will fight you. Even if you are my brother, once you are not a member of this party, you are in the firing line; we will fight you. We will deconstruct your ability every day until you join the CDC,” he warned.
It is unclear whether the position headed by Amos Tweh was declared nonessential due to political maneuvering but Critics believe a recent social media post by Amos Tweh rallying support of UP’s partisans for the democratic removal of the CDC led government following a six-year rule must have provoked the termination of his (Tweh’s) service at the LPRC.
Tweh indicated in the post that the current administration under President Weah was failing terribly.
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Manager of the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company, William Morris has confirmed the termination of Amos Tweh’s services at the entity.
Morris in a telephone interview with The Monrovia Times termed as untrue and unfortunate, claims that Tweh was dismissed based on the non-essentiality of the entity’s Compliance Department.
According to the PR Manager, the Compliance department was degraded to a section due to administrative reasons.
He said the former employee, Amos Tweh has been directed to the Department of Human Resources for the processing of benefits if any, in line with the Civil Service Standing Order.
