Bassa Supt Wants Liberians Embrace Open Government

By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, April 30 (LINA) – Grand Bassa County Superintendent Etweda Cooper has urged Liberians to see themselves as partners in ensuring that the country has an open government that is committed to transparency and good governance.

Cooper said Liberians must see the Open Government Partnership (OGP) as an initiative that will enable Liberia to become more transparent in its undertakings not just in government, but for the entire population.  

Delivering the welcome statement at the start of the Open Government Partnership Regional Consultation at a local hotel in Monrovia on Thursday, Cooper urged participants to concentrate on making meaningful inputs that will help make Liberia a better nation.

 “This is a very important meeting because it talks about an open government partnership between the government of Liberia, the governments of the region, the people of Liberia and the peoples of the region,” Cooper said.

OGP is an international organization promoting multilateral initiatives and seeking stronger commitments from participating government institutions to promote transparency, increase civic participation, fight corruption, and encourage new technologies.

It is intended to make governance more open, effective and accountable with the vision of making governments transparent and able to relate to their own citizens as well as improve the quality of services that citizens receive.
