The In Profile Daily has gathered that Nimba County District #3 Representative, Samuel G. Z. Woleh, is seriously ill, and is expected to be flown to foreign country for medical attention. The situation, according to sources, may create a sad mood among the lawmakers at their ‘after agriculturl break’ opening ceremony today at the Capitol Building.
Representative Woleh, according to the sources, was sick long time before the agriculture break, but his condition has deteriorated despite the intensive medical care by family members. “Representative Samuel Woleh is seriously sick; in fact, he is paralyzed and family members are advising that he be taken to Ghana for treatment,” hinted a staffer at the Capitol Building who preferred not to be named, saying, and “I am not the spokesperson for the lawmaker.”
When contacted, House Spokesman, Isaac Redd, could not confirm nor deny. Redd advised this paper to contact the lawmaker’s relatives, because, according to him, illness is a private matter.
It can be recalled recently that an official of the House of Representatives told this paper that a member of the House was ill, but failed to name the person. The official indicated that said a lawmaker may not attend today’s opening due to serious illness.
“There are 73 representatives; but we are not too clear on one who is not well and arrangements are being made to air lift him to a foreign country for medication,” the Capitol Building official said.
The staff said they had decided that the ailing lawmaker’s name remain undisclosed until the level of illness is determined.
Whether or not it was Representative Woleh this anonymous staff had referred to, is not clear, but the staff’s statement came amidst claims by some residents of Montserrado County District #14 that their Representative, A. VamoyanConneh, had gone missing.
However, the staff was quick to clarify that it was not Representative Corneh, because his (Corneh) office said he was in the United States of America holding meetings with business partners.
For his part, Nimba County Legislative Caucus Secretary, Representative WorleaSaywahDunah, admitted confirmed Representative Woleh’s illness on Sunday but said his condition was not as serious as being rumored. Representative Dunah said his ailing colleague (Rep. Woleh) has been discharged by medical doctors and is currently resting at his residence in Monrovia.
Asked whether the Representative will attend today’s opening at the Capitol Building, the Nimba Legislative Caucus Secretary said he was not sure because medical doctors have advised that he (Rep. Woleh) rests while under intensive medical care.
