Cabinet Ends Retreat
By Prince S. Nagbe, LINA

JULIJUAH, February 28 (LINA) – Cabinet Ministers and President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf  have held a two-day retreat to conclude discussions on key development issues the government intends to address in the next 20 months.

The Cabinet Retreat started on Thursday in Julijuah, the hometown of President Sirleaf, with the Liberian leader calling on the ministers to be honest in their presentations so that the government can have an idea of where the obstacles are to resolve them adequately.

“We are here to look at what we attempt to achieve in the next 20 months and as such, we want you to be focused so that we can be able to identify the results we want to achieve in this time frame,” the President told her Ministers.

She called on them to see themselves as a team so that the objectives agreed upon at the Cabinet retreat can be collectively achieved.

The Liberian leader, however, cautioned the Ministers not to use the meeting for power grab, noting that the meeting is geared towards accomplishing something that they all can take credit for when it is achieved.

Briefing journalists following the meeting, Information Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe said the meeting was comprehensive and interactive.

Minister Nagbe named some of those who made presentations as Lands, Mines and Energy Minister, Patrick Sendolo; Public Works Minister Gyude Moore, and Health Minister Bernice Dahn.

He told the journalists that Minister Sendolo talked about progress being made in the energy sector, including the coming on line of the 18 Megawatts Heavy Fuel Oil plant that will help connect additional homes and businesses, while Moore talked about progress being made in the pavement and rehabilitation of roads across the country.

The Information Minister also told journalists that plans are underway to remove the Redemption Hospital from its present location to Caldwell following the completion of its modern facility, as was disclosed by Minister Dahn at the meeting.

Friday’s session began with the Minister of Finance and Development Planning Amara Konneh being the first presenter.
