Suspended Nimba CEO Refuses Reinstatement; Fears for His Life

GANTA, Nimba – Wleh T. Selah, the previously suspended County Education Officer of Nimba, has refused to be reinstated after the Education Minister reappointed him.

Selah had been previously suspended for having a “poor working relationship” with his subordinates after he was cleared of allegations of placing ghost names on the ministry’s payroll.

George Wuo, the regional education officer for Lofa, Bong, and Nimba, told Presley Boosan of Radio Kergheamahn that after Minister George Werner reinstated him, “[Acting County Education Officer Moses] Dologbay was told to turn over the office and all the access, including the car to [Selah].”

However, according to Wuo, Selah refused because he says he fears that his life would be in danger if he took the job.

Wuo, who was apparently mandated by the Ministry of Education to oversee the transition, said he came to Sanniquellie to perform the ceremony, but was disappointed as Selah did not show up.

“Mr. Selah did not show up for the turning over ceremony. And so, the turning over ceremony never took place,” he said.

Upon receiving the information that Selah did not attend the transitioning ceremony, the ministry reached a decision not to reinstate Selah as CEO of Nimba.

Meanwhile, Moses Dologbay, the former District Education Officer for the Saclepea-Mahn education district, will continue to act as CEO of Nimba, until a replacement is named.

Dologbay has been acting in the position since Selah’s suspension in November 2015.

A resident of Ganta, Nimba County, Arrington has a background working with credit unions and other organizations dedicated to rural finance.
