Korkoya, vis-à-vis the National Elections Commission, is hell bent and knowingly wants to cause chaos a la the elections of 1985 presided over by Emmett Harmon.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was created from the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA), signed in 2003 in Accra, Ghana. Winston Tubman, did not support the idea of a truth and reconciliation commission. Like Senator Johnson, Paramount Chief Barowor accused the Commission of “rejuvenating and reactivating” another war in Liberia. Rather, it parodied the Independent Human Rights Commission for lack of visibility, urging the Commission to decentralize its activities. Just as truth hurts a person and development comes with pains for many so does reconciliation come with justice.

These deadbeat fathers not only categorically refused to support their child or children, they denied them a roadmap to a better future. African countries, and Liberia, need to incorporate child support provisions in court orders and they must enforce those obligations. This can be done easily in Africa, and in Liberia, especially against deadbeat dad who abandoned their child / children when they travel to western countries. Lastly, when we have a child support court in Liberia, the country, government, and the children of those deadbeat dads will all benefit. The government can charge a “court collection fee” for every child support payment collected from a father who refuses to take responsibility voluntarily.

He wants a vice President who has the credentials as you know; the vice President is only a heartbeat from the presidency, so I think he is nearing that decision now. “Today the people of Grand Bassa County have spoken in no uncertain terms and have spoken very loudly. So, you told us, nobody should lay claim on Grand Bassa, Grand Bassa is for all, it’s for all Liberians. So, the Vice President from what we are seeing is going to get unanimity of support but that is the message we want to carry because that empowers him for governance. He wants a vice President who has the credentials as you know; the Vice President is only a heartbeat from the presidency, so I think he is nearing that decision now.

The Netherlands Court of Appeal convicted and sentenced to 19 years a Dutch businessman, Guus Kouwenhoven, for complicity in war crimes that were perpetrated in Liberia a little less than two decades ago. He was charged with breaking UN arms sanctions imposed on Liberia during the civil war. The logic of his conviction was that the arms he supplied were used in committing war crimes. This was the first time that the term “Accomplice liability” came into play in a war crimes tribunal. Will those who broke the UN arms embargo imposed on Rwanda at the height of the Genocide ever atone for their crimes?

But emphasize the need for her to continue the fight against corruption at her entity. He said another way of reducing poverty in his native land is to expend the National Social Security scheme to every Liberian especially those within the workforce, and believes that all Liberian deserves social security benefits. He continue; we boast of our government being a replica of that of the United States of America and had not adopted a single policy to empower our senior citizens through social security benefits and other programs. He said majority of them end up in a corruption scam and fly back to the west to evade justice.
