By Lassana F. Donzo
The Workers Union of the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) has clarified that the Friday February 2, 2018 program held in honor of Major-designate; Jefferson Koijee recently was an act of appreciation to welcome the new MCC Boss. Speaking to a group of reporters Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at the City Hall, the Chairman of the Union, Eric S. Doe, said “We are pleased to inform you and the public that the program by the workers was intended purely as an occasion to express gratitude to the President of Liberia, Ambassador George Manneh Weah for the preferment of Jefferson Koijee, a young Liberian whose track records speak of his ability to promote and advance the pro-poor agenda of the CDC led Government, and not a formal take over ceremony as being perceived in some quarters.”
Recently, Lofa County Senator George Tengbeh alarmed over constitutional breach of presidential nominees taking offices ahead their confirmation by the Liberian Senate.
“We want to make it emphatically clear that the workers of the Monrovia City Corporation are fully cognizant of the legislative procedures of confirming officials of government appointed by the President before formally beginning duties/functions.”
Meanwhile, Doe called on all media practitioners to work in smooth collaboration with the new MCC administration in making Monrovia a clean, green and safe City.
