Journalist Gaye Applauds President Weah Over Medical Intervention  

A Liberian journalist, Jerry Gaye, has applauded  President George Manneh Weah for providing him the opportunity to seek medical treatment at the Polyclinic International Sainte-Anne Marie (PISAM) Hospital in neighboring Ivory Coast.

On Sunday, February 10, 2019, journalist Gaye, an Executive Mansion reporter of Prime FM, sustained major fracture in his leg and waist when the official vehicle ferrying journalists assigned at the Executive Mansion collided with another vehicle which intruded into the presidential convoy along the Monrovia-Gbarnga highway.
 
Earlier, while undergoing medical attention at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, Gaye said on a local radio talk show in Monrovia on Tuesday that President Weah visited him at the hospital and assured that he and his colleague, Gabriel Mills, who was also involved in the accident would be taken care of by the Government.
 
Gaye said President Weah did extremely well to have them taken to PISAM which is one of the most professional and expensive Ivorian hospitals, adding that because of the name “George Weah” they were given due respect at the hospital.
 
Gaye indicated that his operation was done on February 21  and was given a recovery period of two years, citing that he has gone eleven months since the operations and is making great improvement.
 
 He said the President is like a father with a heart, believing that he would have either been crippled or dead if serious medical attention was not accorded him.
 
Gaye also commended the Ivorian nurses and health system at PISAM, noting that nurses at the hospital are “very passionate and show great care and love” especially during the first three months when he was bedridden.
 
He, however, thanked the president of the Press Union of Liberia, and his colleagues from the media for the assistants they rendered while he was away. 
 
President Weah and his entourage were returning from Gbarnga, Bong County following a Methodist Church conference when the intruding vehicle collided with the Executive Mansion Press Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep in the presidential convoy, killing two persons instantly and seriously injuring the driver and others.
