CDC Rep. Aspirant Takes Issue with Sen. Teahjay

first_imgThe newly chosen representative aspirant of Montserrado County District # 16 for the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Dixon Wlawlee Seboe, has reacted to Sinoe County Senator J. Milton Teahjay’s statement that the “CDC of Sen. George Weah will not win the Borough of New Kru Town,” and that if it happens, “it would be over my dead body.”Mr. Seboe said Senator Teahjay is gambling his life for the Unity Party (UP) in what he called “an unrealistic statement.”The CDC representative aspirant told the Daily Observer on Sunday that the Senator’s remarks “are completely out of order because the CDC will definitely win the Borough of New Kru Town in the October 10 elections, just as in past elections.”It may be recalled that during an evening radio show on the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), the UP executive member stated that the ruling Unity Party will win the Borough of New Kru Town in the ensuing elections. He said the CDC, that won the borough in the past three elections, would not succeed as long as he is alive.Some political commentators indicated that the Sinoe County Senator is known for his frivolous political remarks, and cited what he said in 2005 that, “Hair should grow in my palm if Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of the UP wins the elections.” Madam Sirleaf won the elections and Sen. Teahjay, without a strand of hair in his palm, dismissed the matter as “mere political talk”. Last Friday, June 16, delegates from Montserrado County District # 16 voted for Dixon W. Seboe to replace Rep. Dr. Edward Forh, who sought what was described as a hat-trick (3rd term) in the CDC legislative primaries.Mr. Seboe graduated from the University of Liberia (UL) (Cum Laude) in Mathematics, earned an MBA from the Colorado State University in the United States, and another MBA in Finance from the Cuttington University. He also holds a Graduate Certificate in Project Appraisal and Risk Management from Duke University, USA.He currently works as the Senior Manager for Compliance for MTN Liberia and MTN Guinea Bissau. He previously served as Customs Commissioner at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).“Our focus will be on education and health because by educating the young people and giving them the necessary skills, we will empower them. We believe that education can transform this country and there’s a need to educate our people, especially those who have the energy and are ready to learn,” Seboe said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – CDC Representative Aspirant Dixon W.

Virat Kohli on Anil Kumble’s contract: BCCI is following due process

first_imgIndia captain Virat Kohli said that BCCI is only following a due process by inviting fresh application for chief coach’s post with Anil Kumble’s contract expiring at the end of ICC Champions Trophy.Under Kumble, India have won 12 out of the 17 Test matches last season and the timing of BCCI’s move is being perceived by many as a reminder to former India captain that he won’t get automatic extension.”The process has been followed every single time the similar way and for the past so many years is what I know. Even the last time, the post was up for a change, the same procedure was applied. And the term being one year, obviously the procedure is being followed in the same manner,” Kohli said when asked about Kumble’s contract.”So I don’t see anything very different from what has happened in the past. And that’s something that the board has obviously recognized. And they want to follow the same patterns.”So, yeah, I literally don’t have any more information on it because there is a committee that takes those decisions, and they’re following the same pattern that’s been followed in the past as well,” the skipper remained guarded in his response.However asked specifically about Anil Kumble’s contribution, Kohli said that when a team does well, it is due to the equal contribution from all and sundry.”Obviously, when you have results come your way, the contribution is from every part of the team. It’s not from a single source, to say the least. Everyone works hard equally, if not more than the other person,” the skipper said.advertisementlast_img read more
