Former NLA Boss, Martin Sele Kollie Clarifies His Removal From Tenure Position

The former Managing Director of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) Martin Sele Kollie has clarified that although the Supreme Court ruled in his favor when he contested his removal from a tenure position by former President George Weah, the CDC government still forced him out of office in 2018.

Speaking to a pro- media group, Media Alliance for Democratic Governance (MADE) from London, England over the weekend, Mr. Kollie claimed that aside from forcibly removing him from office, the CDC government did not pay him salaries for the four remaining years of his tenure.

Mr.Kollie acknowledged that while people are now using the Supreme Court Opinion in his case as legal reliance, it was worth noting that the CDC government vehemently refused to abide by the Supreme Court opinion and sailed away with impunity.

The former Lottery boss cautioned the current Unity Party led government not to follow the negative action of the CDC government but to rather be a respecter of the law by not removing people currently serving tenure positions.

According to him, statutes enacted by the legislation are part of the laws of Liberia which President Joseph Boakai took oath to defend and protect saying, nothing should deter him from remaining committed to such vow.

Mr. Kollie at the same quoted information that the UP-led government is planning to pay off people currently occupying tenure positions.

He however stressed that if the scheme is fulfilled, he will also request payment from the government for his uncompleted four years tenure at the National Lottery Authority.

This organization (MADE) contacted former Comptroller and Accounting General Janga Kowo on his phone number 0770810011 for respond, but his phone rang endlessly without respond.
