Two Day Cabinet Retreat


Pres. Sirleaf Urges Cabinet To Collaborate, Communicate

MONROVIA, April 3 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has urged the Cabinet to ensure collaboration, effective communication and unhindered cooperation, if the government must achieve its 150 days of actionable progress.

The 150 days of actionable progress is part of government's last mile of 290 days.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader was speaking at the weekend during a two-day Cabinet Retreat in Julijuah, Bomi County.

She challenged her Cabinet to see the need to explore innovative ways to fund and take achievable action with a view to leave the next administration a solid foundation from where it would build upon.

“Keeping our promise to Liberians; nice things do not happen, unless you make them happen,” President Sirleaf noted.

As part of the 150 days Action Plan, the administration is committed to providing the next government a solid foundation to continue the peace and to achieve the change that Liberia needs.

Cabinet mandated a National Transition Plan, Ministries, Agencies and Commissions Transition; Civil Service Transition; Assets Transition; and Security and Rule of Law Transition.

In the execution plan for the 150 days, 37 actions were captured under agriculture, education, health, energy, ICT, roads, water, ports, commerce and public buildings.

This would allow the President Delivery Unit (PDU) to oversee the timely delivery of the 150 days plan, while Cabinet will provide support to focus on success plan through dedicated Cabinet meetings for regular updates.

Cabinet has further mandated that the Democratic Transition prioritizes and ensures the first transition from one democratically elected government to another in this lifetime is fully realized.

In order for government ministries, agencies and commissions to leave the next administration accurate and comprehensive information on assets, ideas, and plans, the Cabinet’s Secretariat in concert with the Office of the President will set a time for compliance.

The two-day Cabinet Retreat ended with a commitment for renewal, re-dedication and determination to remain strong on the last mile in furtherance of achieving the achievable.
