LIBERIA MOURNS THE PASSING OF CHARLES SIRLEAF, LAID TO REST TODAY

Date:

Tuesday, June 18, 2024, Liberia bids farewell to Mr. Charles Sirleaf, a prominent figure in the nation’s financial sector, at his homegoing ceremony attended by President Joseph Boakai, Vice President Jeremiah K. Koung, and other dignitaries. Mr. Sirleaf, the eldest son of former Liberian President Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf passed away at the age of 68 in Ghana, leaves behind a legacy marked by his significant contributions to Liberia’s economic stability and financial reforms.

Charles Sirleaf served as Deputy Governor for Operations at the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) from 2012 to 2020. His tenure included a pivotal moment when he assumed the role of Acting Executive Governor during a transitional period. He played a crucial role in steering the CBL through economic challenges, focusing on policies that aimed to stabilize and strengthen Liberia’s financial system.

Throughout his career spanning three presidential administrations and an interim government, Mr. Sirleaf’s dedication to Liberia’s financial sector was unwavering. His leadership at the CBL was marked by efforts to implement critical reforms and policies that aimed to safeguard the country’s economic interests.

Details surrounding Mr. Charles Sirleaf’s passing in Ghana remain undisclosed. However, his contributions to the banking sector, particularly at the Central Bank of Liberia, where he served diligently, will be remembered fondly by colleagues and stakeholders. His passing is a loss not only to his family but also to Liberia’s financial community.

As Liberia mourns the loss of Charles Sirleaf, his legacy of service and commitment to the nation’s economic well-being will continue to inspire future generations in the financial sector. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
