MONROVIA-Over repeated calls from Liberians and others concerned over the ‘ineffective and inefficient’ public service of some officials of the Liberian Government, President George Weah has disclosed that the period of ‘errors’ is over.
Addressing Liberians on Monday January 25, 2021 during his State of the Nation Address (SONA), the Liberian leader said his government will focus on the ‘bread and butter’ issues of the Liberian people going forward.
According to him, there is ‘no room for error for all ministers’ urging them to take note.
|The Liberian leader added “We understand some of the personal and collective challenges you face in your lives. We feel the pain you feel on a day-to-day basis as you seek to put bread on your table.I too have felt the pain of hunger and poverty.”
“I have mandated the entire machinery of my administration to recalibrate and enhance the focus on finding lasting solutions to the bread and better issues facing our people. Therefore, there will be no room for error, no room for laxity. All ministers and officials; take note,” he warned.
The Liberian Chief Executive further assured Liberians and development partners that his administration’s commitment remains unwavering when it comes to the transformational development of Liberia within the framework of an accountable and functional democracy.
“This is not only my ambition, this is my determination. In order to do so, however, it will require that you rally to the cause, and make your own personal commitment to national development. This is our country,” he added.
President Weah also said “Just as it belongs to all of us; it will require the collective effort of all of us to improve it. No one person can do it for us, and we must not expect any one from outside to do it for us.”
“As I have often said, I have my vision, and I will fulfill my mission. That vision is fully set out and captured in the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development, and my mission is to fulfill that vision through the development of this country and the betterment of the lives of the Liberian people,” he concluded.
