Monrovia – President George Weah has withdrawn the nomination of Mr. Alex Tyler from the Board of ArcelorMittal Operating Company with immediate effect.
According to an Executive Mansion press release, a replacement nomination would be announced shortly.
Pres. Weah’s decision comes a day after a FrontPageAfrica news analysis and editorial questioning the President’s decision to appoint Mr. Tyler who is yet to be cleared from a series of high-profile of corruption cases when he served as Speaker of the 53rd Legislature.
Tyler is currently on trial for allegedly soliciting and receiving bribes in the Sable Mining saga that was exposed by Global Witness’ ‘The Deceivers’ Report.
The Sable Mining corruption scandal was the largest corrupt syndicate in Ex-President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s regime which involved several high-profile officials of her government.
