The suspended Bong County Superintendent also revealed that in a tense atmosphere at President Weah’s Jamacia Resort in Monrovia, she was told by the two Ministers that VP Taylor had masterminded the given of the Dakpaana traditional Sande and Poro societies title by the County to the Liberian Vice President which should have been given to the President.
But barely four months since Superintendent Walker was suspended, she has now joined hundreds of rural women headed by the Bong County Village saving loan association to appeal to the President for reinstatement.
The appeal which was done through Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf, will see the reinstatement of the suspended Bong County Superintendent if President George Manneh Weah agrees.
A member of the Village saving loan Association Fatu Baynay said they regret the situation but President Weah should see reasons to reinstate Madam Walker.
She said to the Internal Affairs Minister that President Weah is not just a President but a Father for all Liberians maintaining that the Liberian Leader should have pity on the suspended superintendent.
According to her, Madam Walker has over the past immensely worked for the People of the County and letting her step aside will not be fine.
Even though the Muslim community was not invited, but it was represented by some officials who joined their voices to appeal to the President.
Aleu Abu Siakor a member of the Community said President Weah did not make a mistake to appoint Madam Walker because she serves with impartiality.
At the same time, Suspended Superintendent Walker expressed serious regret and promise not to ever have such situation repeated.
Madam Walker pledged her commitment to always working for the People of the County when reinstated which will promote the government’s pro-poor agenda for prosperity and development.
For his part, Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf promised to extend the message to President Weah and told the women that he strongly believes that the President will accept the appeals.
According to him, they as government officials just have to accept the appeals of Madam Walker because she has shown a high level of commitment of her willingness to support the current government.
