“Govt. Will Continue To Offer Hope To The People,” Pres Sirleaf
By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, January 26 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson has said that government will continue to endeavor to make significant strides to deliver during the last two years of her tenure.

She said the government in 2006 was given the mandate to change the nation, knowing that it will also require time to change the people as well, adding, “We welcomed the opportunity to lay new foundations and set new targets in pursuit of a better society.”

Delivering the State of the Nation address at the Capitol Building in Monrovia on Monday, the Liberian leader stressed that “progress inspires hope, hope enlivens people, and a hopeful people can pursue their aspirations and overcome their challenges.”

She noted that she will offer no apology to government critics as they themselves are direct beneficiaries of the progress that the nation has made over the years.


“Those critics often think that their political bearing is being undermined, especially when the government continues to recount the collective progress of the nation,” she added.

In accordance with the mandate to transform the nation, President Sirleaf noted that the government collectively formulated a national vision - “Liberia Rising: Vision 2030, including the five-year slice called the Agenda for Transformation.

President Sirleaf noted that amidst the myriads of challenges in resource, human and institutional capacities, the government continues to make progress on the pillars of the national vision.

She named Infrastructure, Agriculture, Education, Health and Governance as the five pillars of the national vision on which government will continue to make deliverables to the people.
