Time for Presidential Press Secretary to be sent away

The Holy Bible says there is a time for every purpose under the Sun. The Bible also advises Christians to be humble as much as possible especially when one is serving a powerful Master. It was amusing to see Shekito, the Presidential Press Secretary turned into a Full Page news item yesterday. That alone is enough sign that it is time to send the fellow on leave as he is now the news and not his Boss. Add to that, his questionable loyalty to APC & Ernest Koroma...

Still on the need to send this errant man on leave is his contempt for Judiciary procedures. Regardless of how low the Judiciary might have sunk over the last few decades, the fact is that a Democracy can be considered totally dead if the independence of the Judiciary is not seen as sacrosanct at all times. For Koromas Press Secretary to not only comment on a matter that is sub-judice but to speculate upon the outcome of such matter that the State took against Dr. Sylvia Blyden is most unacceptable! Shekito did so yesterday in Torchlight newspaper! He did same thing earlier this year when he wrote about closed-door President-Judiciary discussions which preceded that infamous Le100million Bail...!

The Bible says there is a time for every purpose and it is time for President Koroma to send his Press Secretary away from State House or else Mr. President should blame no one for the fall-outs that will surely come from his very silly & immature Press Secretary picking fights with people who do not mind the controversy of such fights. LONTA!
