On Sunday December 16, 2012 at about 23:58 hours, just minutes after I concluded the part one of “The unmasking of Kofi Woods”, FPA released what is now appearing as one of the most criticized annual grade point ever in it publishing history. The release entitled “who made it, who flunked”, caught my attention. I repositioned my laptop and began carefully perusing the report card. As I went deep down the report, I began to see the level of biasness and subjective reporting. On Saturday December 15, 2012, just day before the report was released, reliable sources from the ministry of public works saw Rodney Sieh dinning with minister Woods. Further investigation into the alleged meeting revealed that Minster Woods and Mr. Sieh’s meeting decided who gets what in the so-called bias report card that has receive more than 80% negative comments since the publication on December 16, 2012. The December 15 meeting was mainly intended to focus on several ministers who minister Woods sees as possible contenders in the 2017 presidential elections that President Johnson-Sirleaf will not be taking part in. Labor minister Varbah Gayflor is not one of the focus persons for the 2017 project but she received one of the worst grades as a result of minister woods interest at the labor ministry.
Investigation into Minister Gayflor’s “D” average revealed that one of the deputy ministers (name with held for now until minister woods challenge this report) at the labor ministry is minister woods very special interest and have been at logger head with minister Gayflor since she took over as minister of Labor. Internal memo obtained from the labor ministry showed that minister Gayflor once ordered the suspension of the deputy minister concern but minister Woods intervention help to halt the situation. Minster Woods allegedly influenced FPA’s Rodney Sieh to give “D” average to minister Gayflor with the intention to make minister Gayflor unpopular with president Johnson-Sirleaf.
Minister Woods targets are; Finance Minister Amara Konneh, Defense Minister Browine Samukai, and Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan. He intend to use Rodney to do the dirty work by using the media to make the above cabinet ministers unpopular ahead of the 2017 presidential elections. Rodney Sieh gave Kofi Woods “A” on grounds that the ministry of public works is about to pave the major streets in Voinjama, Lofa County. How can grade be awarded even before work begins? Is this not a clear indication that something happen behind the scenes that the reading public is yet to know about?
In 2012, the road between Ganta and Voinjama is inaccessible. The old executive mansion on Broad street is leaking profusely, the Belle Yalla road which receive millions of tax payers’ money is abandoned, the Gardnersville-Paynesville red lights or Somalia drive is one of the worsts in the world, Jamaica road is not different from diamond mine, and Rodney is blindly busy giving Kofi Woods “A”
At the ministry of public works, Woods unofficial brother-in-law serves as assistant minister for planning at the same time serving as SES Consultant for M&E thereby defrauding the ministry and Government of money.
Minister Woods have had complex media connection over the years thus giving him enough time to politically market himself over his cabinet colleagues. During the last cabinet meeting, minister Woods was overtly heard criticizing his fellow cabinet ministers about not doing enough to stamp out corruption from Government. Minister Woods continue to remain silent about his handling of the abandoned Belle Yalla road project that Government has spent millions of tax payer’s money on. How could Rodney Sieh not see all of those blunders?
