Elie E. Saleeby, Governor of CBL and Chairman of CBL Board
A source close to Bryant said there was no reason given for Mr. Sealeeby’s resignation. Our source who spoke on conditions of anonymity added: “Pressure has been mounting for months calling for his dismissal and many people, including the legislature and other stakeholders raised questions about his retention. This man was known as Mr. Taylor’s financier and keeping him on was not politically wise.” Mr. Charles Greene, a member of the Board of Directors and former governor of the National Bank was appointed to replace Mr. Sealeeby. Members of the Board of Director of the bank include: Mr. Willie Belleh, Dr. Charles A. Clarke, Mr. Charles A. Greene and Mr. Nathaniel Barnes (Nathaniel Barnes replaced Hillary A. Dennis who was paid US$45,000 as severance pay after he decided to step down from the Board.) It is believed that Mr. Saleeby will be paid thousands of dollars based on CBL Board’s severance pay package.
Another issue of great magnitude facing the Chairman concerns the Minister of Finance. The faction that nominated him is now asking for the removal of Mr. Losenee Kamara and his replacement with Mr. Soko Sacko, Director of the Cabinet. LURD leaders, including Sekou Damateh and Speaker George Dweh are said to be putting pressure on the Minister to resign.
If LURD were to succeed in removing the Minister, other factions may
be tempted to do the same with officials they nominated to positions
in the government.
