Nothing is wrong with an indigenous person aspiring for and achieving the highest office in the land. That is exactly why the quest for an indigenous President should not be tinged with vengeance exclusion or xenophobia. The fight between tribalism and tolerance in Liberia - the resulting behavioral fallout that puts Congau and Country Liberians at loggerheads should come to an end. If a country person is going to win the presidency, let them win it on merit. We should not plant seeds of doubts in minds of global players about the capacity of an indigenous President to govern without prejudice.
As an evident, this has been the case of several political parties such as the TWP, NPP, UPP, LUP, LAP and NDPL. But one might ask, is divisive politics the answer to our daunting problems in Liberi? In recent time divisive politics have taken an upward trend, as certain politician and lawmakers have been angels and prophets of advocating tribal, sectional and regional divisive politics. Going further, Adjunct Professor Gray’s publication narrates the contributions of several Liberian women. At once a conflict region like Liberia, women were violated, harassed, beaten, raped maimed, abused and stripped of their prides.

With allusion to the just ended Controversial Primary won by Rep. Youngblood the integrity of the CDC is at stake!

Dishonesty and amateurism are interpreted and understood as integrity and professionalism. This is Ellen’s Kingdom––the zone where dishonesty and amateurism mean integrity and professionalism, a territory where officials of government are treated like foster and adopted children. Dr. Kollie went further by saying that: “This was not an audit, but a witch-hunt.” Really? Is this what Dr. Kollie, his associate and supporters as well as President Sirleaf will consider a witch-hunt? Dr. Kollie and his associates’ argument about how an audit supposed to go is not wrong; the problem is, it is a mere theory.

Liberia and a Chinese company signed Friday the first ever steel manufacturing agreement in the West African country in more than 169 years, heralding the end to the exportation of its rich unprocessed iron ores. The $200 million agreement was signed between Tidfore Investment Company and the Liberian government that was represented by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Finance and Lands and Mines ministers and other senior government officials. “This is the first boost to our economy,” and “the first time our own local raw materials will reach the finish point and exported to other countries”, Johnson Sirleaf said. “This investment will bring so much relief in the economy sector of Liberia,” he added. Liberia is Africa’s third largest iron ore exporter after South Africa and Mauritania, and ranks 22 in the world.

Mrs. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia, left behind a trail of surprise, disappointment and even anger in the minds of many Nigerians. It also left heavy question marks on the future of ECOWAS, because of the receptive consideration given to the Morocco’s request for membership of the Community by the Heads of State in Monrovia. ECOWAS has since its establishment been central to Nigeria’s foreign policy, because of the importance of the sub-region in Africa and the world. Since then ECOWAS has gone through thick and thin, and today it is the most active Regional Economic Community (REC) in Africa. If any country should take credit for this achievement, it is no doubt, Nigeria.

Hints of the pick have been in the air for months with many of the VP aides and supporters trumpeting and insisting on an ethnic ticket. Downside: The Boakai camp has been toying for a while with the idea of Findley as a VP to the vice President.

ODDS: 10-1Boakai’s predicamentSwirling around a sea of speculations, Boakai has for weeks now faced mounting pressure to name a running mate.

By: Nicholas KristofRIVERCESS COUNTY, Liberia — He’s a 2-year-old boy named Sunday Dahn, lying in a coma in a rural health center with cerebral malaria. In Washington, we’ll see debates about President Trump’s proposal to slash humanitarian aid, and politicians will emerge as winners or losers depending on the outcome. Yet he will profoundly shape their lives, and deaths, for American health assistance benefits half the Liberian population. It’s not, of course, that Trump is responsible for Sunday’s coma. And our Liberia journey underscores that saving lives is often complicated, and harder than we think.
