An Open Letter to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

first_imgDear Madam Sirleaf,Kindly accept our sincere greetings. We write to say many thanks and appreciation to you for the invaluable maximum contributions you have been making over the years to the total growth, development and progress of the government and people of Liberia since you assumed power to date – such a sound, democratic leadership is highly commendable indeed.However, Madam President, we are actually constrained and disappointed to bring to your official attention the management of the Cocopa Rubber Plantation Company’s deliberate refusal and denial to give our fair entitled financial benefits to date. Therefore, Your Excellency, we the voiceless and marginalized are at this point in time humbly appealing to you to please intervene in order that we receive our long delayed financial benefits we labored for prior to the war years.It can be recalled that on February 25, 2014, we the former workers of Cocopa Company addressed a letter to you to that effect.By and large, Madam President, the management of the abovementioned company is about to pay her present workforce, and is not even thinking about us at all.Therefore, from the look of things, Madam President, we want to logically deduce and conclude that the management is up to chaos and confusion.Whatever the case, Madam President, we are looking up to you for an amicable final solution at your earliest Executive convenience.With kindest regards and sentiments of our highest esteem.Respectfully yours,Signed: ———————————————————Moses W.

The Premier League players who could feature at Africa Cup of Nations in January

first_img 1. Liverpool could lose Sadio Mane in January, as the forward is a Senegal international – scroll through the gallery to see other players who could play a part in the Africa Cup of Nations – A number of Premier League clubs are likely to lose players if their national teams come calling ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations. Mane, who scored three goals in Senegal’s qualification campaign, is likely to be among them. 15 6. Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny plays for Egypt – Elneny was part of the Egypt side that finished top of Group G. 5. Stoke and Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony – Bony only joined Stoke on loan in the summer, but they will probably have to let him go when January comes around. 15 14. Leicester forward Islam Slimani also scores goals for Algeria – Leicester’s record signing Slimani (£30m) scored four times en route to Gabon. 9. Sunderland’s Wahbi Khazri is a Tunisia international – As well as Khazri, Sunderland could also be without Gabon international and record signing Didier Ndong who hasn’t exactly been spectacular. Senegal’s Papy Djilobodji is also there. 15 15 10. West Ham’s Cheikou Kouyate represents Senegal – West Ham could really do with keeping Kouyate, but he is Senegal’s captain. Not sure they’d miss Sofiane Feghouli if Algeria add him to their squad, though. 2. Watford’s Nordin Amrabat also plays for Morocco – Watford are likely to feel Amrabat’s absence if Morocco call on him, while Adlene Guedioura is an Algeria international. As teams await the Africa Cup of Nations draw, talkSPORT looks at the Premier League players who could be representing their countries in Gabon on 14 January.West Ham’s Andre Ayew is not due back until December, while Liverpool defender Joel Matip said he cannot see himself playing for Cameroon as he is concentrating on his club.“It is a long time until January so you never know, but that is the idea,” he said.At Southampton, Sofiane Boufal has struggled with injury since his £13m arrival from Lille, so will be aiming to get into Southampton’s first team before considering Morocco duty.Nigeria didn’t make it, so the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi. In addition, Victor Wanyama’s Kenya team-mates failed to make it to Gabon. 15 15 7. Max Gradel: Bournemouth man is an Ivory Coast international – Gradel is a regular in Ivory Coast’s team having earned 45 caps for his country. 15 8. Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye is a Senegal international – Gueye is a popular player at Everton and will be missed when he heads to Gabon with Senegal, who eased to qualification with six wins from six and a goal difference of +11. 15 13. Leicester and Ghana ace Jeffrey Schlupp – Another hard working Leicester player who may get the nod is Schlupp. He was born in Germany to Ghanaian parents and has won 13 Ghana caps, while Daniel Amartey has won 10. 11. Leicester will probably have to do without Riyad Mahrez if Algeria come calling – Leicester are likely to be hit pretty hard by the Africa Cup of Nations if Mahrez is called up. 15 15 15 15 4. Crystal Palace and Mali midfielder Bakary Sako – Pape Souare needed surgery after a horrific car accident, which will keep him out of the Senegal squad, while Sako will surely have to play more to be ready to represent Mali. 15 3. Everton summer signing Yannick Bolasie represents DR Congo – The Democratic Republic of Congo topped their group and that means Everton manager Ronald Koeman could be without the tricky Bolasie. 15 12. West Brom and Cameroon defender Allan Nyom – West Brom’s full-back swapped Watford for West Brom in the summer and has 14 Cameroon caps to his name. 15 15. Man United defender Eric Bailly has been capped by Ivory Coast – Man United spent £30m on him in the summer, but Jose Mourinho may have to do without his young defender as Ivory Coast made it to Gabon after scraping past Sudan and Sierra Leone.last_img read more
