‘I Have not Resigned’

first_imgFormer Justice Minister Christiana P. TahJustice Minister Christiana P. Tah has broken her silence over reports that she resigned her post as Minister of Justice of the Republic of Liberia and subsequently left the country.A lot of speculation has been made in Monrovia, with some saying that Cllr. Tah, who is banned from practicing law in the Republic for six months, “fled” Liberia following her resignation.However, Minister Tah, speaking with the Daily Observer  Tuesday, April 22, stated that she has heard all of the weird stories coming from Monrovia and that she has not resigned her post as Minister of Justice; even though she is still undergoing the suspension placed on her by Justices of the Supreme Court of Liberia. The suspension ends July 2014.Minister Tah said: “It is customary that before any minister leaves the country, that person has to get the President’s approval. I wrote the President asking her to allow me to seek medical attention in the United States. The President granted my request; so I left.”The letter from the President’s Office, with reference, MOS-RL/EBM-COS/0257/2014 and addressed to Minister Tah states: “This acknowledges receipt of your February 25, 2014 letter to the President requesting approval to travel to the United States of America after mid-March in order to undergo procedural dental treatment.”“The President herein approves said request, and wishes you a successful medical trip and a safe return home thereafter,” the letter concluded.The letter was signed by Dr. Edward B. McClain, Jr., Minister of State for Presidential Affairs.Minister Tah assured Liberians that after her medical treatment in the US — from whence she phoned in — she would return home to Liberia.The full letter from the President’s Office addressed to Justice Minister Christiana P. Tah is published on page 5 of today’s edition.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Neymar grabbed a brilliant equaliser in a fiery encounter at Marseille Sunday before his side went down 2-1 with ten minutes to go.Leading the chase for another equaliser, Neymar appeared to lose his cool, picking up two yellows in quick succession for retaliation.His teammate Edinson Cavani levelled with a dramatic injury-time free-kick to save a point for the Ligue 1 leaders.PSG coach Unai Emery has told his 25-year-old star to wise up to provocation tactics.“He is intelligent.

Exclusive – Sullivan: West Ham will replace injured Carroll with new striker

first_imgWest Ham co-owner David Sullivan has told talkSPORT they will look to bring in another striker after club-record signing Andy Carroll was ruled out for four months.The Hammers’ star striker tore the ligaments in his ankle during training on a pre-season tour of New Zealand and is now unlikely to return until November.Carroll, 25, has suffered a nightmare spell at Upton Park since joining permanently in a £15million deal from Liverpool last summer – he has only made 16 appearances for the east London club.West Ham have already signed Mauro Zarate and Enner Valencia this summer but Sullivan admitted they will now be forced to bring in another striker.“We have to bring in another striker and we’re working on it now to buy one, or loan one, or both,” the Hammers chief told the Sports Bar.“You can never have enough strikers and really with Andy gone we haven’t got enough.”Last season Carroll did not make his first appearance for Hammers until January and Sullivan confessed the club had erred in investing everything in the striker.“It was desperate last year… We probably made a mistake by putting all our eggs in one basket,” the co-owner added.“Had we known what we know now we wouldn’t have signed the player. But it’s easy to be wise after the event. We were assured by our physio – who has since left the club – that the player would be available for the start of the season.“He wasn’t available until January or February. A mistake was made and we were given the wrong information. We based our decision and our purchase of the player on what the medical department told us.“We’ve changed everything in that department as a result of that. At the same time on his day he is a devastating and fantastic player, we’ve just got to get him back to his best.“But at the same time we can’t start the season with the strikeforce we’ve got. I don’t think it’s good enough, there’s not enough height in it and if we get another injury, in terms of quantity, it’s insufficient, so we have to sign at least one more player.”last_img read more
