MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Government of Liberia says its clampdown on corruption in the country remains unabated.

Information Minister, Eugene Nagbe, said: “Government’s stance on corruption has triggered the prosecution of several public officials linked to corrupt practices without fear, or favor.”

“Despite public perceptions on government’s approach to corruption, much has been done to curb the practice, especially in Government,” Minister Nagbe also said.

The Information Minister made the clarification Tuesday, October 4, 2016 in an interview with the BBC. He told the BBC: “President Sirleaf has no intention to perpetuate herself in power as claimed by detractors.”

“The Liberian Leader is committed to a smooth democratic transition in 2017 in keeping with the Liberian Constitution,” the Information Ministry Boss further clarified.

At the same time, Minister Nagbe has dismissed, as untrue, the involvement of President Sirleaf in Representative Alex Tyler’s removal as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Further commenting on the internal wrangling that led to the Speaker’s removal, he emphasized that the Liberian Leader remains committed to ensuring that unity prevails in and among the three branches of government.
