Dismissed Deputy Police Director for Operations, Abraham Kromah, says he welcomes President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s decision that relieved him of his post.
Mr. Kromah, popularly known by his assigned code “102,” was dismissed by President Sirleaf on Friday along with three other high profile LNP officers.
Following his dismissal, Mr. Kromah has been both glorified and vilified by the public.
Speaking on a local radio station in Monrovia, AB Kromah via mobile phone on Monday said that it is the President’s will to hire and fire any government official.
“I’m a qualified citizen and was (fortunate) to work as Deputy Police Director for Operations for two and a half years, during which time, I served my people, and I am very pleased to see others coming in to serve our country.”
Mr. Kromah thanked President Sirleaf for giving him the opportunity to serve his country, saying, she made the best decision at the time by appointing him to work in the interest of Liberians.
Responding to his critics, Kromah said he was not moved by what they are saying about him because he is a qualified Liberian who was doing a job for the government and country.
According to him, the President’s decision to relieve him of his duties did not mean that he won’t continue to serve his country.
“I am just who I am, a citizen, and am not regretting my dismissal. I accept the decision Madam President took with all my heart and I look forward to what the future will bring,” he said.
The former “101” maintained that he was pleased to turn over the position to whoever has been appointed by the President.
Meanwhile, his successor, Inspector Prince B. Mulbah, took over yesterday as Acting Police Deputy Director for Operations during a colorful ceremony held at the LNP headquarters in Monrovia.
