Weah & cabinet brainstorm in Buchanan

–Ahead of crucial election

By Emmanuel wise Jipoh

President George Manneh Weah and his cabinet ministers will on Monday, 24 April 2023 to Wednesday 26 April 2023, brainstorm in what is expected to be a major cabinet retreat, ahead of the 10 October presidential and legislative elections.

Mr. Weah will play host to ministers, directors, as well as executive directors, among other high-ranking officials of his administration in their three-day stay in that part of Liberia.

Accordingly, heads of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), autonomous agencies, and commissions, ministries, agencies and commissions (MACs), are expected to form part of the high-level meeting.

They are expected to report on progress in the performance targets set aside by the highest office, which comes at the backdrop of the last Cabinet Retreat held at the Peace- Empire- Hotel, in Gompa City, Nimba County last July.

It is likely to be more interactive than the previous retreat in Ganta City. It features discussions and presentations on the implementation status of the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD), zooming specifically on the National Economy, Revenue Generation, Aid Management and Coordination, and the President’s 2022 Legislative Agenda.

While placing specific emphasis on accountability and transparency issues in government, this year’s retreat comes at time when Liberia heads to the crucial Presidential and Legislative elections.

The Weah-led administration has been accused of alleged corruption, economic problems, ritualistic killings, high cost of living, among others, which the opposition has used as a campaign against the administration.

Mr. Weah, this time is expected to come hard on his cabinet ministers, while encouraging all hands-on desks, ahead of the crucial election.

President Weah has told the gathering of cabinet ministers that there would be no room for mistakes.

Not only the Buchanan meeting will take stock of gains made since that mid-2022 Retreat but will also highlight and specifically focus on President Weah’s strategic governance strides in the next 173 days.

The cabinet will focus on affordability and the economy, job creation, youth empowerment, and health care, as they aim at convincing the electorate ahead of the crucial period.
