Senator Jallah Urges Robust Reconciliation Program
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe & Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, June 26 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Internal Affairs, Reconciliation and Good Governance, Armah Jallah, has underscored the need for robust programs to forge reconciliation in the country.

Jallah said such programs must reach out to all sectors and elements of the society to ensure that the entire country is reconciled to adequately sustain the peace being enjoyed by Liberians and foreign nationals.

He told the Liberia News Agency Thursday that although the Government of Liberia is making some efforts to reconcile Liberians by establishing the Reconciliation Commission, more needs to be done to heal the wounds created as a result of the 14-year civil unrest.

Jallah stressed that the Executive Mansion should ensure that those who have the credentials, will-power and experience to help deepen the nation’s reconciliation program are appointed in order to succeed.

He maintained that there are some people who feel left out in the process of reconciliation, saying, “Opportunity should be given to everybody to contribute their quota instead of one group of people dominating the process”.

Jallah believes that the recent reconciliation meeting arranged between the people of Nimba and Grand Gedeh counties did not achieve the desired result because all of those whose views and opinions are important to the meeting were not considered for participation .

Lawmaker Jallah emphasized that access to social services across the country is another means through which reconciliation can be actualized in Liberia, adding that reconciliation will be meaningless to people who walk for hours to get to a health center and cannot be treated due to the lack of essential drugs.
