UP vows robust reconciliation campaign

By Lincoln G. Peters 

The Unity Party (UP) of President-elect Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai has vowed to undertake a robust national reconciliation campaign to ensure that Liberians are united above the party line.

UP chairman Rev. Luther Tarpeh told state broadcaster ELBC that the incoming UP administration takes national reconciliation very seriously.

According to him, Amb. Boakai believes that there can be no true development and progress in the absence of unity and reconciliation.

“We are going to do everything possible to unite Liberia. The country is fiercely divided beyond political line right in the middle,” chairman Tarpeh said recently.

“You can see it because we defeated the CDC [Coalition for Democratic Change] with just [a] slim margin and so that shows that we have work to unite this country and its people,” he continued.

The UP chair explained that Amb. Boakai is concerned about reconciliation and unity, thereby instituting a Transitional Team that is inclusive. 

He said since outgoing President Amb. George Manneh Weah conceded defeat, Amb. Boakai in his first address to the nation informed Liberians that there is nothing called green and blue Liberians, but Liberians are one.

“We will rule on the mantra of unity and reconciliation because there can be no development in the absence of unity,” said Chairman Tarpeh. 

“We will ensure that Liberians are united beyond every line including social-economic, and political and religious lines,” he noted. 

Meanwhile, chairman Tarpeh has disclosed that Amb. Boakai and his vice president-elect Sen. Jeremiah Koung will be certificated on 27 December 2023. 

The UP asked the National Elections Commission to plan Boakai and Koung’s certification to a new date due to their absence when winners of the 2023 presidential and legislative elections were scheduled to receive their certificates on 8 December.

Chairman Tarpeh said the President-elect is currently in the United States cementing relationships and recalibrating Liberia’s relationship to restore development and process.
