PRESIDENT JOSEPH BOAKAI VOWS TO TACKLE CORRUPTION AND TRANSFORM LIBERIA’S FUTURE

Date:

President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, Sr., sat down for an enlightening interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), where he discussed several crucial governance issues that Liberia is currently facing. During the interview, President Boakai emphasized the urgent need for a change in the perception of government, highlighting that it should be seen as a place of service and accountability rather than a platform for self-elevation and personal enrichment.

One of the key points President Boakai stressed was his strong stance against corruption. He pledged to dismiss any government official caught engaging in acts of misusing public resources, as he firmly believes that corruption lies at the root of Liberia’s problems. President Boakai’s commitment to fighting corruption is underlined by his own track record of serving in public office for many years without any allegations of corruption.

President Boakai further expressed his firm belief that Liberia is not a poor country, contrary to popular perception. He highlighted the country’s abundant natural resources and emphasized the importance of individuals understanding their responsibility to the state and its people in order to change the narrative about Liberia being a poor and corrupt nation.

Agriculture was another critical topic discussed during the interview. President Boakai reiterated his conviction that Liberia has the potential to become a major contributor to global food security if its agricultural resources are effectively managed. He specifically mentioned Liberia’s fertile soil and land, which are well-suited for rice production, the country’s staple crop. President Boakai’s comments served as a reminder that addressing corruption is essential for harnessing Liberia’s agricultural potential and achieving food security.

Regarding the issue of a war crimes court, President Boakai expressed his belief that those who bear the greatest responsibility for crimes committed during Liberia’s civil war must be held accountable for their actions. He stressed the importance of admitting wrongdoing as a means of promoting reconciliation and ending impunity.

President Joseph Boakai’s interview with the BBC shed light on his firm commitment to fighting corruption, promoting accountability, and harnessing Liberia’s potential for development. His vision for a better Liberia resonates with the need for change and a collective effort to address key challenges facing the nation.
