VP’s Office Slams Integrity Watch Story As “Criminal”

MONROVIA, August 17 (LINA) - The Office of the Vice President has categorically condemned Wednesday’s edition of the Integrity Watch newspaper, calling its banner story “malicious and criminal.”

In its Wednesday edition, the Publisher of Integrity Watch, Mr. Charles B. Yates, said Vice President Joseph N. Boakai was forming a proposed cabinet ahead of 2017 and that the Vice President was leaving out President Sirleaf’s confidantes.

The Vice President’s Office in a press release said the publication is “false and misleading and only intended to sow seeds of discord in Government.”

A Vice Presidential Spokesman said the publication demonstrates “a high degree of ignorance, recklessness and immaturity on the side of Mr. Charles B. Yates and his supporters to insinuate that the Vice President is forming a cabinet ahead of 2017 elections.”

According to the release, the Vice President is a law abiding personality who has and continues to demonstrate a high degree of statesmanship.

Meanwhile, Vice President Boakai will this weekend leave the country for Abuja, Nigeria where he is expected to deliver the keynote address at the Nelson Mandela International Roundtable on Political Developments in Africa under the theme: Presidential Constitutional Term Limits and the Failure of African Democracy.
