Following the National Election Commission announcement of results for the just ended results of the November 14, 2023, runoff election, various local government offices in Nimba County are being massively looted.
State properties that were assigned to various government Ministries and Agencies in the county are being swept away into neighboring Guinea.
The looting is being executed by outgoing officials after hearing results from the runoff election, which the ruling CDC lost to the opposition UP.
The NEW DAWN gathers that assets being looted include vehicles, motorbikes, office furniture, generators and computers, among others.
The act is being carried out at the Administrative Building in Sanniquellie and offices of various district commissioners from the 19 administrative districts in the county.
They are being joined by all six mayoral offices alongside with various government agencies.
Some office staffers, who asked for anonymity, said the action by their bosses is based on apprehension that they may not get re-appointed by the incoming UP-led government.
Prior to their victory, Unity Party vice running mate, Senator Jeremiah Koung told journalists during the heat of campaign that if elected President of Liberia, Ambassador Joseph Boakai will work with all Liberians across the country regardless of party affiliation, because his government’s goal is to help build a better country.
A tour of some public offices in the county by this paper saw district commissioners, city mayors, including Superintendent Nelson Korquoi, and County Inspector Mack Gblinwon conspicuously absent from work on Monday, the first working day of the week.
They refused to speak to reporters when contacted on the issue that is set to portray the outgoing administration negatively. Editing by Jonathan Browne
