The Congress for Democratic Change lauds the President of the Republic of Liberia, H.E. George M. Weah’s timely dismissal of former Deputy Information Minister for Press and Public Affairs, Eugene L. Fahngon.
The party’s National Executive Committee believes the dismissal action, which is a step in the right direction, demonstrates the President’s unflinching commitment to a serious and depoliticized campaign against the spread of covid-19.
The leadership of the Congress for Democratic Change admonishes officials entrusted with public trust to avoid the ill-judged and baseless assertions of the former Minister, which is mutually incompatible to government’s healthcare delivery agenda to keep people and country save from the devastating impacts of covid-19.
At the same time, the party renews calls for all members of the CDC to take the lead in adhering to the President’s recent proclamation, which provides the best mechanism through which we will collectively curtail and #Beatcovid out of Liberia.
Fahngon was dismissed Wednesday by what the Executive Mansion called ‘Spreading false information regarding the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging the country.’
He was earlier Thursday, 24th June replaced by Jallawah Tonpo, Director of Press, Liberian Senate with immediate effect.
