President George Manneh Weah says his government is focused on its responsibility of giving to citizens what they need, disclosing that he has a good news which when presented to the public, those doubting his government will not have time to criticize again.
Dedicating the King Gray Market at the ELWA Community in Paynesville Friday, 13 July, Mr. Weah said his government is working to change and make Liberia a better place to live, but expressed concern that this is a country where politics wants to supersede good governance.
“There is a good news in the making for Liberians; when that good news is presented to the public, those who are doubting the performance of [my] government will not have the time to criticize the workings of the government again,” he is quoted to have said later in New Kru Town on Bushrod Island in an Executive Mansion release.
“We are working to change and make Liberia a better place to live,” President Weah said, adding: “This is the country where politics want to supersede good governance. But we won’t let that happen.”
Launching a Coastal Defense Project on Friday, 13 July to prevent continued sea erosion in the Borough of New Kru Town, President Weah assured Liberians that he will not let them down.
New Kru Town, a densely populated slum community on Bushrod Island has suffered years of sea erosions which has damaged properties, and past efforts to stop further erosions there have not brought the situation under control.
But Mr. Weah says his government is committed to working with international partners especially the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in helping the people of New Kru Town to prevent the problems of sea erosion.
“Just right there is the D. Tweh High School. That school has made and continues to make numerous contributions in impacting and building the capacity of Liberians, many of whom are making significant and positive contributions to the Liberian society,” he said of a public school in New Kru Town.
He says government and its partners will do their best to save the school and the community. President Weah assures that his government must do its best to succeed because its vision and major concern are to help lift Liberians out of poverty.
According to him, the people’s vision and needs are the concerns of his government, but not to compromise their interest, adding that government is working on its Pro-Poor Agenda to benefit Liberians.
“Our life is not to boast, but as a government our responsibility is to perform, give to you what you need and not to give you those things that you do not need,” President Weah concludes. –Press release
