Pres. Sirleaf Reverses Nomination, Kumbuyah Remains At Education

By Winnie Dixon/LINA

MONROVIA, November 29 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has reversed her latest nomination of Ramses Kumbuyah as Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports for Administration, opting to retain him as Deputy Education Minister for Administration.

The President’s decision was predicated on an appeal from Education Minister-designate Elizabeth Davis-Russell pleading for continuity of service by Kumbuyah in his current position, according to a letter President Sirleaf wrote to the Senate.

In the letter dated November 24, 2014, President Sirleaf quoted Davis-Russell as saying Kumbuyah “represents an institutional memory of the education sector.”

“I have accepted her appeal and hereby withdraw the nomination of Dr. Nancy Freeman and nominate her to the position of Deputy Minister for Administration at the Ministry of Youth and Sports," she added.

Following the reading of the communication, the senate voted to forward the letter to the Committees on Education and Youth and Sports to begin confirmation hearings for the nominees, according to the Liberia News Agency.
