0 15

The Minister of Transport (MOT) has sharply reacted to what it termed as ‘unfounded rumors and misinformation’ circulating about its involvement into the processing of Insurance Documents for commercial motorbikes. It can be recalled that on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, scores of motorcyclists stormed the premises of the Minister in demand of their money, on grounds that they were issued fake Insurance Documents by the Ministry. But responding to their allegation over the weekend in Monrovia, Transport Minister, Sirleaf Tyler asserted that the Ministry is not, and has never been in the business of processing insurance documents for commercial motorbikes or any other vehicles, stressing that those baseless allegations undermine the integrity and purpose of the institution.  “Let me be unequivocally clear, the Ministry of Transport does not and will not facilitate insurance processes; this remains the domain of licensed insurance companies,” he said. According to him, they have issued a directive to all insurance companies to recall their agents from within and around the facilities of the Ministry. Accordingly, said measure is to ensure that there is no confusion about the role and responsibilities of the Ministry. Minister Tyler indicated that their primary goal is to ensure the safety, reliability and transparency of all transport services in its jurisdiction.   “In light of these rumors, we are currently conducting a thorough investigation into the alleged involvement of certain employees’ illegal activities related to the fake insurance documents,” he noted. He noted that if any of the Ministry employee is found guilty of such misconduct, they will face the full consequences as per the laws that govern the Civil Servants Standing Order. Minister Tyler emphasized that they are committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and accountability within the Ministry. “We understand the public’s concern and we are working diligently to resolve this matter. We ask for your patience and support as we navigate this challenging situation,” he said. Macpherson C. Marbiah writes/0886442881-0777250370
