-Pensioners And Students Say
Several Liberians, especially at the state run university and the African Methodist University as well as some pensioners have said that the head of NASCORP Dewett vonBamoos is competent and enjoys the confidence of the people whom he serves. More over, they have described him as a person who is development oriented.
Speaking to this paper on Thursday, the head of the group, Aaron P. Samspon said, “we are constrained to come out and speak in support of the corporation and its director general. This man has brought level of massive development to the institution and Liberia at large.”
“See the huge housing units under the leadership of Dewitt. Such project is not going to his personal use. But it benefits the country and helps to ease housing burden on the government,” he said.
From the AMEU campus, several students who read on social media that a group was seeking for the removal of Nascorp boss expressed anger and displeasure.
“The boss Dewett vonBamoos has been up for development. I sometimes think about some Liberians who are only there to seek about their personal interest. But see since this man took over, he has initiated huge developments in the country,” Sylvester Johnson said.
He added, “see the huge structure at ELWA junction and the clinic to the same place as well. What else do you want for him to do? Some of these people, if you put them there, they will only steal and try to amass wealth for themselves. But the team at NASSCORP is focus and determined to improve the system,” he added
Others said , he has been transparent in his activities. “See the new NASCORP headquarters on 24th street. This is bigh development in real time.”
“Some pensioners who spoke to this paper around their offices expressed anger. “Those people talking do not know what they are saying. If they love this country and love Liberians, they will just shut up and sit down. This man has brought new level of innovation at Social security. We are calling on the president not to listen to them. Those who are calling for your removal are bunch of jokers and non patriotic citizens,” one old lady only identified as Ma Annie said.
Another pensioner, David Kollie said, “my son, president Weah, do not listen to those people yah. This director is developing the country and doing just what we expect. My son, you do not know the intent of those people. They just want to come and grab and go. So, we support our director. He is here for development. Look at the National Pension Scheme (NPS).
“In fact, where is this group calling itself ‘The Consortium of Anti-Corruption Advocates (CACA)’ coming from? Trust me, those are some little greedy and hungry boys running around here and there like chicken without head. The go so and take money money and jump here and take money. But god is looking at them. We the old people know that this director is doing well for us,” Oldman Sumo said. He added, “I do not think this NASCORP administration is afraid of audit”.
The group, CACA is calling for the removal of the boss and at the same time calling for audit.
