Prior to the coming into office of president George Weah government, the UN had over 10,000 men in the  country to maintain peace. The troops left after it said the country was ready to take charge of its own security.

“Security is always important. We need to do that because Liberia is taking charge of its own security. We had UNMIL here. Now that they have gone, we need to increase the security. This is something   the government is looking into. We will make sure we train more people in the security,” he said without giving the figures.

He said, the government has a military program, the military has asked for a training program. The Americans and UN have made some proposal. Obviously when the training comes, they will go through  the regular program. The army  wants to train people because they said they are losing manpower.  The police will increase,” he said.

“Security is always important.   That is something that we need to do,” he said.
