It has been widely circulated on the social media, specifically facebook that Coleman had resigned his post as Director-General following reported attacks on him by his two deputies.
Coleman, also a former Director-General of the Liberia National Police (LNP), told FrontPageAfrica that he still remains at the helm of the institution.
“I want to use this opportunity to clarify the letter that has been circulated about my resignation as Director General of the National Bureau of Concessions,” Coleman told the paper.
“I remain the Director General in charge of the National Bureau of Concessions and I am grateful for the confidence His Excellency President George M. Weah has reposed in me,” he added.
It can be recalled that the NBC Boss on Thursday, August 1, 2019 reported being physically and felonious restrained by his two deputies.
He asserted that his two deputies aggressively entered his office and physically attacked him.
The former LNP Chief pointed out that his two deputies pointed fingers in his face, insulted and violently banged on his desk.
“The DDGA stood in the visitors’ chair, while the DDGC took comfort in sitting on my desk continuing the banging and insulting me and my generation. They both made phone calls for vanguard forces from the CDC headquarters to back them up in their pursuit, including an allege call to Col. Patrick Suddue, requesting for si ERU officers to come and drag me out of my office. All of this was done in the presence of the HR, Legal Director, Office Assistant and security,” reported Coleman.
He stated that in order to avoid the uncontrollable provocation, he decided to leave his office, but the pair restrained him from leaving his office.
“The both deputies did not stop there, they used their vehicles and deployed DDGC office assistant, thugs who arrived in response to their call, to block the entrance and exit of the Bureau, preventing me from leaving the compound. Thanks to the securities who managed to break the lock on the other unused gate to let me out,” he explained.
“As Chief Executive Officer of the National Bureau of Concession, I cannot guarantee the safety of employees under these conditions, as such, employees are advised to remain on the premises based on their personal comfort levels, as there will be no administrative action taken against anyone who feels unsafe due to the prevailing situation. Meanwhile, I am working with the President and the Ministry of Justice to restore order and sanity as soon as possible. I sincerely apologize for the situation, with commitment to the earliest possible resolution of this crisis,” he added.
Consequently, President George Manneh Weah has suspended two the deputies at the National Bureau of Concessions (NBC) for time indefinite for “Administrative misconduct.”
According to an Executive Mansion statement, the suspension of Mr. Daddy Gibson; Deputy Director General for Administration (DDGA) and Mr. Nathaniel Bracewell; Deputy Director General for Concession (DDGC), takes immediate effect.
