-Suspends All Preparatory Activities
Information Minister Eugene Lenn Nagbe has announced the immediate dissolution of the Miss Liberia 2019 Organizing Committee. Minister Nagbe has also suspended all preparatory activities leading up to the hosting of the event.
The annual affair which is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Information Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) was due to be hosted later this year.
However, the Minister has said that would-be contestants who incurred expenses as a result of their engagement with the committee – and other stakeholders who made contributions – will be reimbursed.
Minister Nagbe calls on the general public to totally disregard all publication of promotional materials, particularly those bearing the photograph of the President of Liberia, George M. Weah, which he said, “were neither authorized or approved by MICAT”.
