-Lahai Lansana In Limbo
Reportedly dismissed Coordinator on Disputes and Concession Affairs seems to have his fate hanging in limbo following reports that he is no longer a holder of the prestigious position, an indication that he has fallen from grace to grass.

The former Bomi County Senator Lahai Lansanah is contesting report that he is being dismissed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on grounds that he not received an official communication to that effect.
A local media recently reported that Lansana had been dismissed by the Liberian leader, but the ex-lawmaker said he was not aware of his dismissal as claimed by Truth FM.
He told this paper when contacted on his alleged dismissal by the President that as far he was concerned, such information was unattainable as he has not received any letter regarding his dismissal.
He claimed to still be enjoying his benefits and other entitlements pertaining the position.
“I am disappointed over this because I have not received any communication that I have been dismissed,” he told this paper.
“This is the vehicle that I am using. I have the opportunity that she and I come from Bomi; if there is anything I will reach her on her farm. I have not received any communication that I should surrender any government properties to Madam X or Mr. X”.
His preferment by the President as Coordinator on Disputes and Concession Affairs on July 26, 2016, a new position for that matter, has not gone down well with some political pundits including his kinsman Sando Johnson, who think the president only tried to accommodate the former Senator.
Senator Johnson, current chairman of the Senate Committee on Concession has since vowed not to work with Mr. Lansanah while occupying such position.
“You have the minister of internal affairs, National Bureau of Concession, National Investment Commission, legislative arms that are responsible to do oversight on those institutions. He is a unity partisan and the president is a member, so it is a political accommodation,” Johnson spewed in defiance of the president’s action.
The former Chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules, Order and Administration has since returned to the Unity Party in fulfillment of the 2011 merger involving the Liberia Action Party (LAP), of which he was a member, the Liberia Unification Party (LUP) and UP, adding that “besides, things and those who became hurdles to my association with UP are no longer around…it’s time I go back home.”
But his reported dismissal is insinuated to base on his supports to Representative Edwin Snowe who is now contesting the Bomi District two representative seat currently occupied by Representative Samuel Gayah Karmo.
