Liberians Challenge President Weah To Fight Corruption
Some Liberians have urged their new president to honour his promise of holding government officials accountable to the people.
Speaking in Monrovia, one Saah Clinton, a retired soldier, advised President George Weah to show courage and do the right thing in the interest of Liberians.
“Although, I am confident in the president’s ability to crack down on corruption as promised in his inaugural speech, it takes a lot of political will and courage to do that.
“The president should carry the masses along in whatever decision he takes against powerful government officials, and the people will stand by him,” he said.
Weah, in his inaugural address, renewed his promise to tackle endemic corruption especially in the public service, vowing to prosecute corrupt government officials “to the full extent of the law’’.
“As officials of government, it is time to put the interest of our people above our own selfish interests. It is time to be honest with our people
“For those who do not refrain from enriching themselves at the expense of the people, the law will take its course,” the president said.
