Number fourteen on a list of so-called “non-members” of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC), some supporters of President George Manneh Weah want out of his government, now making the rounds on the social media Facebook and Whazzap is Gregory Coleman. The former Inspector General of the Liberian National Police is one of a few holdovers from the former administration of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
This week, Coleman, currently the head of the National Bureau of Concessions, was at the center of a major storm which escalated into a physical altercation with two of his deputies, who are said to be die-hard members of the ruling party.
The NBC boss had to be smuggled out of his office through the backdoor by way of a rarely-used gate of the compound of the Bureau as the main entrance and exit had been blocked to avoid the attack from his two deputies — Daddy Gibson, Deputy Director General for Administration (DDGA) and Nathaniel Bracewell, Deputy Director General for Concession (DDGC) on the bureau’s 19th street office.

On Friday, President Weah, facing criticisms that he sanctioned the assault on Coleman took a decision to suspend the pair from the NBC.
NBC Pair Suspended Indefinitely
In a statement Friday, the Executive Mansion announced that the President has suspended with immediate effect two deputies at the National Bureau of Concession (NBC) for time indefinite. “Daddy Gibson, DeputyDirector General for Administration and Nathaniel Bracewell, Deputy Director General for Concession at the National Bureau of Concession are suspended for Administrative misconduct.”
Their suspension was announced early Friday. Critics are however concerned that the President’s action falling short of a dismissal could trigger more of such actions against others named on a purported blacklist making the rounds on Facebook, Whazzap and in inboxes amongst Liberians both at home and abroad.
