The students want the President to be impartial in punishing those that have been accused by the President's Special Independent Investigation Board (SSIB) of violating the Private Use Permit (PUP) regulations at the Forestry development Authority (FDA).
In an interview with the leadership of students yesterday in Monrovia, the Nimba Students said they are not against the dismissal of their kinsman, former FDA Managing Director, Mr. Moses Wogbeh, but do not want Mr. Wogbeh to be used as a sacrificial lamb amidst to cover up politicians who played major roles in the issuances of the permits.
The students therefore want President Sirleaf to implement the SIIB's recommendation in full, which among other things, advised her not to leave any stone unturned in dealing with those involved in the PUP scandal.
The students lamented that in spite of the Board's recommendation that impartial administrative measures should be taken by the President to address the forest deal, former FDA Board Chair, Agriculture Minister Florence Chenoweth, under whose tenure the deal was consummated is yet to be reprimanded.
Meanwhile, the General Chairlady of Zoe-Geh Statutory District in Nimba County, Madam Mary Larto, has expressed concerns over what she called selective justice rendered by the President in the fraudulent forest deal. She also wants the president to reprimand all those that were involved in the corrupt forestry deal.
