Deputy Presidential Press Secretary Smith Toby has attributed the dismissal of Agriculture Minister Mogana Flomo to his failure to promote the CDC- led government’s pro-poor agenda in the agriculture sector.
Deputy Presidential Press Secretary Smith Toby said, since his appointment more than one year ago, Minister Flomo has not been able to move the sector from one stage to another.
The deputy Presidential Press secretary described the Agriculture sector as one of pillars through which the pro-poor agenda can be achieved.
Toby said, President Weah had anticipated that the Ministry of Agriculture in the second year of his administration would have significantly improved under Minister Flomo, but the sector remains the same despite support from partners.
Commenting on the meeting between President Weah and the President of the International Criminal Court Judge Eboe-Osuji on the margins of the Summit in Abuja, Mr. Toby said the discussion focused on the role of the ICC in promoting peace and security in the world.
Toby said Judge Osuji briefed President Weah on the role of the ICC in promoting better relations with ECOWAS Member States about the work of the ICC.
He said the ICC President praised the Liberian leader for his current development initiatives and extended him an invitation to visit the Court at his earliest convenience.
