President George Manneh Weah is not mincing his words in assuring Liberians that during his administration, he would settle down for nothing less than transforming their standard of life.President Weah vows that Liberia would not go down the pit or become worse under his regime.
Speaking Monday, October 1, during celebration of his 52nd birth anniversary in Monrovia, the President continues that his government would exert every effort necessary to explore and make use of all available means capable of creating a conducive environment for national development.
He maintains that his administration has the potential and willpower to ensure the achievement of national development and economic growth.President Weah however adds that the country would not achieve its potential in development in the absence of sustained peace, reconciliation and unity amongst Liberians.
“Let bygone be bygone,” President Weah entreats Liberians, and reiterates, “Let us reconcile among ourselves and together we can build a Liberia in which our people will prosper.” The President notes that he carries a heart of deep love for Liberia and would do nothing wrong that will negatively affect or dissatisfy Liberians for whom he took risk to join politics.
“I love my country and I love you,” he says to jubilant supporters at his birthday party. “I will do nothing to tie or retard development and growth in the country. Under my leadership, Liberia will not be a worse place, as I am very committed to my country’s development.”
He expresses gratitude to Liberians for demonstrating love and support for his administration.The birthday gathering at which he made the assertions was the first since his ascendency to the Presidency. It was graced by a horde of Liberians, including partisans of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), officials of government and members of the diplomatic corps.
Meanwhile, the government discloses plan to construct 87 kilometers of roads in Montserrado, Grand Bassa and Bong Counties.Earlier in the day, President Weah broke grounds for the Dry Rice Market-Johnsonville-Mount Barclay road project to kick-start massive feeder road pavement projects in Montserrado, Bong and Grand Bassa Counties.
The groundbreaking ceremony preceded a tour of the ongoing coastal defense project in the Borough of New Kru Town, on Bushrod Island.According to President Weah, the ongoing project will help save public institutions in the community, mainly the D. Twe High School which is hard hit by erosion.
“The project is not to just block the sea but to create the facility that will equally serve as a means for economic empowerment in the community”, President Weah concludes. Press Release
