Capitol Hill Rejects Reports of Presidential Convoy’s Crash, As President Weah Attends ECOWAS Ordinary Session

by D. Bashiel Kolleh

The Executive Mansion has rejected reports of the the Presidential convoy being involved in an early morning accident along the Monrovia-Robertsfield Highway, while departing the country to attend the 59th Ordinary Summit of Authority of Heads of States of ECOWAS in Accra, Ghana.

According to a midday dispatch by Press Secretary Issac Solo Kelgbeh, the Chief Executive and his entourage have arrived safely in the Ghanian Capital. President Weah is accompanied by a host of senior government officials, including the Minsters of Foreign Affairs, Defense and Information.

While President Weah is away, the Minister of Finance and Development Planning Honorable Samuel D. Tweah Jr. will Chair the Cabinet in consultation with the Vice President and via telephone with the President.

Meanwhile, the Press Secretary of the President said in his statement that, reports making rounds on social and some mainstream media about the involvement of the President’s convoy in an accident on the Robertsfield Highway are completely false and misleading.

The Executive Mansion statement further said, the Presidential Convoy did come across an accident that had already occurred before the arrival of the motorcade on the scene. The collision was between a regular Police Patrol Vehicle, that is not assigned to the Presidential Detail, and a Tricycle – locally referred to as Kehkeh.

“Because of the concerning nature of the accident, the Medical Team assigned to the Presidential Convoy stopped to render assistance to the injured passengers of the Kehkeh.

It is diaboical on the part of some wicked elements to spread lies alleging that the President’s Convoy was involved in the accident.

The Executive Protective Service wants to make it absolutely clear that it takes seriously the security of road users coming in contact with the presidential convoy, and that its chauffeurs are highly trained.
