Sunday, 27 January 2013 21:21(JollofNews) – Reference to the above captioned story published in our yesterday's edition, Pa Malick Faye has issued the following clarification.
"Chief Manneh was not present that night, when I came across the article. We decided to drop it but it was already printed by the printers up to 2000 copies. According to the printer, if it is to be cancelled then he needs two additional reams of newsprint and a plate.
Then Lamin Kujabi, the then storekeeper was contacted and he said if he should supply the material, he would need to prove it to the MD as he has to authorise it for he is accounted on daily basis.
Lamin Kujabi is currently in the Gambia and he is there to attest to it. I cannot say it was Chief Manneh who did it as I was not present when the article was being laid. I have never mentioned Chief Manneh's name to Dr Taal prior to his alleged disappearance and after.
Secondly the portion that reads I left the observer on a strong financial footing should have read- by the time I was leaving, we owe no bank and had a healthy fixed deposit account with Trust Bank.
Thirdly: On the relationship with Modou Sanyang: I had no relationship at all with the late Sanyang before I become acting MD and subsequently MD. It was JT Kujabi who played a central role in getting me confirmed as MD of Observer.
Modou Sanyang called me while I was around Banjulnding together with Alagie Jobe and Momodou Camara to come to his office. I went there and met him sitting with Kebba Dibba and he handed me my letter confirming me as MD of Observer."
