...Chief Of Office Staff Discloses
Amidst reports that Vice President Joseph N. Boakai is being considered for investigation by the Liberia National Police, the Chief of Staff in the Office of the Vice President Sam Stevquoah has disclosed that Police Director Chris Massaquoi held a meeting with his boss.
However, Stevquoah clarified that the Vice President was not investigated during the meeting with Director Massaquoi.
He said the Police Director only briefed the Vice President about “happenings on the national level” including the alleged formation of an interim government.
Mr. Stevquoah said it is a normal practice by the Police Director to always brief the Vice President on national security issues, emphasizing that it was not an investigation as being insinuated in some quarters.
The Vice President Chief of Office Staff said during the meeting with Ambassador Boakai, other issues including public safety were discussed.
He said the Vice President went beyond his conversation with the Police Director and also held discussions with Justice Minister Christina Tah, which he said, was not bordered on any investigation.
Mr. Stevquoah said the Vice President, as per his position, is entitled to national security information.
He said at no time the Vice President has been written or invited to any investigation.
Stevquoah said the Vice President continues to enjoy excellent relationship with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
He said Ambassador Boakai and the President have phone communication.
Stevquoah further said the Vice President on a weekly basis attends meeting with the President.
“Those who want to plant bad seed between the President and the Vice President will not succeed because they were two friends before they came to the national theater,” he added.
