Govt. Will Not Accept Lame Duck Concept’- Pres. Sirleaf
By Prince S. Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, July 3 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has said her government will not accept the lame duck concept from senior officials as her administration sails to the finish line.

The Liberian leader noted that members of her cabinet should not sit back and relax, but rather do all they can, push harder like they have always done in the past 11 years to ensure that the government reaches the finish line, accomplishing as much as they can within the capabilities and resources that are available to them.

Making the comment when she commissioned Justice Minister Fredrick D. Cherue and Deputy Justice Minister for Economic Affairs Harrietta Badio at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia recently, President Sirleaf urged them to work with their colleagues to achieve these objectives.

“You are taking on grave responsibilities in the best times and the worst times; best in that your leadership combined with your colleagues will be guarding the process that leads the country to the finish line by keeping peace in the land and doing it with primary responsibility as UNMIL handover of security will place you
in that position,” President Sirleaf said.

The Liberian leader noted that the two Justice Ministry officials are taking up their tasks in the worst times because as her administration comes to an end, there are and will always be lots of challenges that they will always be called upon to help address to ensure Liberia remains peaceful and stable.

In response, Justice Minister Cherue pledged his sincere commitment and unflinching loyalty to the President Sirleaf, the nation and the people of Liberia, and promised to justify the confidence reposed in him.

Cherue said his appointment as Justice Minister and Attorney General is not just an honor but also a challenge, because he is going to chair the country’s security sector as UNMIL leaves, adding, “I am taking oath on the eve of the UNMIL complete drawdown which poses a serious challenge to me and my colleagues at the ministry as well as those from the other security apparatuses.
