Days after a leaked letter signed by Police Director Chris Massaquoi requesting authorization from the Ministry of Justice to investigate Vice President Joseph Boakai in connection with the establishment of an interim government in Liberia, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf says she has given no authorization to probe the Vice President.
Presidential Press Secretary Jerolinmek Piah said the President is not aware of any decision to investigate Ambassador Boakai as being reported in the media.
Piah said the President instructed him to make the clarification that the Vice President who she referred to as her trusted partner is not under any investigation.
The Presidential Press Secretary made the disclosure Thursday via mobile phone on Truth FM breakfast Show.
President Johnson-Sirleaf is quoted as saying that she still enjoys excellent relationship with the Vice President who she has known for more than 40 years.
The Liberian leader through her spokesperson said her confidence in Ambassador Boakai is unwavering, adding that no amount of politics will dent the excellent relationship she and the Vice President enjoy.
The President said the relationship between she and her Vice President which began several decades ago would continue even after their tenure in 2018.
She said those wishing to erode the good relationship she has with Ambassador Boakai must think twice because both of them trust each other.
