MONROVIA – In a recent interview on the popular talk show ‘Spoon Talk,’ last night, former CDC chairman George Solo made startling allegations regarding the present chair of the National Election Commission (NEC), Davidetta Brown-Lassanah. Solo claimed that Brown-Lassanah was once President George Weah’s girlfriend and questioned her ability to make independent decisions.
Speaking candidly on the show, Solo stated, “I can establish that Weah and her had a relationship. We lived in the same house, we lived together, we ate together. I know her proximity to the President.” He emphasized that he was sharing his personal knowledge and not quoting anyone else.
Solo further suggested that Brown-Lassanah’s past relationship with President Weah could potentially influence her decisions, especially in the context of the upcoming elections. Expressing doubts about her impartiality, he stated, “With such relations, it is possible she could do Weah the favor to give him a second term. So, I don’t really trust she can deliver any independent decision.”
These claims by the former CDC Chairman have sparked intrigue and raised questions about the neutrality of the NEC chair, as well as the potential impact on the upcoming elections. As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how these allegations will be addressed and what impact they may have on public perception.
Brown-Lassanah was nominated to the NEC during Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s administration as CDC representatives on the board of commissioners, before he appointed her as chairperson of the Commission when he became President of the country.
Smart News Liberia’s efforts to contact the Chairperson through the Communications Director, Mr. Henry Flomo for comment on the allegations prove fruitless.
