–if elected president

By Emmanuel Wise Jipoh 

Liberian presidential hopeful Dr. Clarence Moniba has promised a corruption-free Liberia if he is elected president this year.

”In our first 100 days, we will rapidly tackle corruption, and we will ensure that before you take office as appointees of government, you must first declare your assets,” Dr. Moniba said Tuesday, 7 February 2023

The 43-year-old joins several politicians seeking the presidency in the 10 October 2023 presidential and legislative elections.

They will be battling incumbent President George Manneh Weah who is seeking a second six-year term.

Dr. Moniba is expected to run for the presidency as the political leader of the Liberian National Union (LINU) party.

Dr. Moniba told a local radio station in Monrovia that he will rapidly tackle corruption, insecurity, the economy, and agriculture.

He also vowed to tackle education, and healthcare as part of his first 100 days of deliverables to the Liberian people.

Dr. Moniba is the son of former Liberian Vice President Dr. Harry F. Moniba who served in the late President Samuel Kanyon Doe’s regime.

In former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s regime, Dr. Clarence Moniba served as Liberia’s Minister of State Without Portfolio, and Board Chair of Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC).

To aid the anti-corruption fight, Dr. Moniba elaborated that his administration will ensure that every single government will declare assets, and their bank account before being appointed.

On education, Dr. Moniba said his government will enforce an Executive Order that will allow all secondary students to acquire vocational and technical education before graduating from high school.

“What we will do in our First 100 days clearly defines exactly what we have in our agenda for the Liberian people that will benefit them,” said Dr. Moniba.

“We will secure the funding and ensure an executive order that will be instituted in every high school, that students have at least two years of technical and vocational knowledge before graduating,” Dr. Moniba said.

For agriculture, the presidential hopeful said he will ensure that every county contributes to the development and food security of Liberia.

To achieve this, he said every county will immediately start studies to know what it can grow and harvest.

He believes that this will enable every county to contribute to food security as a pathway to ending starvation among Liberians.

Commenting on the healthcare sector of the country, Dr. Moniba promised to revamp the John F. Kennedy Medical Hospital in Monrovia and the Tapeta Hospital in Nimba County.

To achieve this goal, he promised to seek US$150 million from international partners that will be spent to properly renovate the two hospitals.

He said staff will be trained, and he will ensure that the two hospitals become the best in the West African region.
