MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Rift has reportedly ensued between the Director of Human Resource at the Ministry of Justice, Irwin Nimely, and Acting County Attorney of Montserrado, Alhaji Swailho Sasay, over his reported refusal to quit the position.
In a communication to Cllr. Sasay, the Human Resource Director requested him to refrain from making presentations on behalf of the Justice Ministry.
In his letter dated February 8, 2024, Mr. Nimely Nimely also instructed Cllr. Sasay is to turn over all assets of the Government of Liberia to the Office of Human Resources until his re-appointment to the position of Acting County Attorney.
