National Investment Commission chief Richard Tolbert has followed Foreign Minister Olubanke King Akelere in bowing out of the government following the president’s cabinet dismantling. Media reports have long hinted that Mr. Tolbert was targeted to be sacked, but that the president has been searching for his replacement.
So far, only these are the 2 ministers that have resigned. Others are waiting to see who will be retained and who packs up. Mr. Tolbert’s, nephew of assassinated President William R. Tolbert, resignation comes on the heels of the resignation of Foreign minister Olubanke King-Akerele who also confirmed he resignation on Tuesday to The Associated Press.
