MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberian Government says the on-going demolition of the unfinished Defense Ministry building is in no way intended to erase former President, Samuel Kanyon Doe’s Legacy.

The National Defense Ministry building is located in Congo Town, suburb of the Liberian Capital, Monrovia.

Information Minister, Eugene Nagbe, said: “The Government has no interest in destroying past leaders’ legacies as being perceived by detractors.”

“The unfinished Defense Ministry building is being demolished, because of the faulty posture of building,” Minister Nagbe said.

He also refuted speculations that the Government is spending US$4 million to demolish the building.

The Liberian Information Ministry Boss further clarified: “At no time did the Government spend money amounting to US$60 million for the construction of the Ministerial Complex.”

Minister Nagbe made the statement Tuesday, October 25, 2016 when he appeared on ELBC's "Super Morning Show"

At the same time, the Liberian Information Minister disclosed that the Greenville Port in Sinoe County will be opened next month (November).

“The reopening of the Greenville Port is to boost the economy of Liberia’s South Eastern Region,” he added.
