Credible information gathered by this paper revealed that a cabinet reshuffle is in the offing, though it was not disclosed when that will come into effect, affecting several ministries including Finance Ministry, Foreign Ministry, Information Ministry, and Commerce.
According to sources who confided in this paper, Finance Minister Amara Konneh is likely to return to the Ministry Planning and Economic Affairs pending the appointment of a minister proper while Dr. Jame S. Kollie who happens to be Deputy Finance Minister for Revenue may step in his shoes as Finance Minister.
If the sources worth iota of believability, then Information Minister Lewis Brown is on his way to the Foreign Ministry as Minister proper and will be replaced with Mr. J. Milton Teahjay, current Superintendent of Sinoe County while current Foreign Minister Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan is to go the African Development Bank (ADB) as Liberia's Representative.
In the same vein, the sources also hinted that Commerce Minister Miatta Beyslow is on the verge of being retired but there is no information on her possible replacement, and that Public Works Minister Kofi Woods as reportedly tendered in his resignation but was allegedly asked by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to hold on while she fetches for his replacement.
The reported resignation of Mr. Woods, according to sources, is hinged on his desire to contest the 2017 general and presidential elections.
The thrust behind the cabinet reshuffle is linked to the president's dissatisfaction with the performances of the would-be affected ministers under the period under review.

Wesley Washington who was reached via mobile phone could not comment either but rather referred this paper to Mr. Piah whom he said is clothed with the authority to comment "on those kind of issues."
