Presidential Press Secretary Rejects Naymote’s Reports
…Says it lacks sufficient information on Weah’s Deliverables
MONROVIA-Barely a few days after the release of Naymote Partners for Democratic Development’s report indicating that President George M. Weah performed below the belt in terms of fulfilling his over two hundred promises, the Presidential Press Secretary, Isaac Solo Kelgbeh, is not pleased with the report.
The Democratic Institution mentioned that the Liberian Leader only achieved 8% of the promises made.
Kelgbeh mentioned that the report is inaccurate and untrue and it lacks the basic information reflecting the reality of President Weah’s deliverables since his ascendancy to the presidency.
Serving as a guest on State of the Nation on Truth FM, 96.1, the Presidential Press Secretary disclosed that the Liberian Leader undertook tangible developments that were not captured in the Naymote Report.
He indicated that Naymote did not carry out any check to ascertain the facts before the publication of its report.
Mr. Kelgbeh has embraced the initiative instituted by the democratic institution to checkmate the President’s promises.
He however urged Naymote to engage in the act of due diligence before any publication.
The Press Secretary noted that the Liberian Leader is not against any institution checkmating his performances but the such initiative should be associated with facts.
“Civil Society Organizations should always contact his office for information relative to the president, whenever they prepare their reports so that they can reflect on the actual facts concerning the president’s developments or promises to the Liberian People” he added.
But the Head of Naymote Partners for Democratic Development Eddie Jarwolo backed his report stressing the credibility of information within the report.
According to him, most of the promises made by President Weah were gathered from the Town Hall Meeting including the Party’s Manifesto.
According to him, President Weah makes 167 promises during the county tour at is yet to be actualized.
He said before they develop the program, they wrote the president concerning their reports that which they have been doing over the years.
