Nagbe Distances UP From Korkoya's Saga

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, April 18 (LINA) -The Secretary General of the ruling Unity Party (UP), Eugene Lenn Nagbe, has denounced media reports and public speculations that the UP is part of those calling for the resignation of  National Elections Commission (NEC) Chairman, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya.

The NEC boss has in recent times become the center for attention, having been accused of being an American citizen, an accusation which when proven will contravene Section 2.3 of the Election Laws of Liberia.

Section 2.3 of the Elections Law states that "Every Commissioner (of NEC) shall be a Liberian."

A release issued by the NEC recently quoted Korkoya as affirming that he is a Liberian citizen and denying bearing two passports, then in an interview with the VOA, "Day Break Africa" on Monday, he challenged those accusing him of being a citizen of the United States of America to go to court.

Nagbe, who is also Minister of Information, told state broadcaster ELBC that the reference to UP as being part of those calling for the resignation of Korkoya "is untrue," and that the UP will rather make such demand in an official manner rather than being speculative.

Nagbe said, the UP does not make hidden statements, particularly on matters that have the propensity to bring the party (UP) to public disrepute.
