‘PRESIDENT-ELECT BOAKAI CONSIDERING APPOINTING COMMERCE MINISTER MAWINE G. DIGGS IN A DEAL WITH GEORGE WEAH’

Date:

MONROVIA – In a recent development, sources have reported that President Weah and President-elect Joseph Boakai have come to an arrangement regarding the appointment of officials in the upcoming Boakai-led administration.

Among the notable individuals suggested for potential appointment is Commerce Minister Mawine G. Diggs.

The controversial Mawine G. Diggs, who is causing the demise of the Ministry of Commerce, is highly recommended for either retaining her current position or being appointed to a lucrative role within the new administration.

However, it is important to note that since assuming the position of Commerce Minister, the Ministry has faced certain challenges, specifically, there have been concerns regarding a decline in its effectiveness and the subsequent negative impact on the overall value of the institution.

While further details regarding the specific arrangements and potential appointments are yet to be disclosed, this particular development involving Mawine G. Diggs and the Commerce Ministry highlights the significance of ongoing discussions and negotiations within the government.

As the transition of power approaches, it remains essential to closely monitor the decisions being made and their potential implications for the future functioning of key institutions.

In the meantime, a top Boakai source has said any attempt to implement such a deal will damage the anti-corruption standing of the incoming regime.

The source, who preferred not to be named said, he hopes such news is incorrect, adding that “If true, will be the beginning of falling of the [Boakai-led] Government.”
