MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberian Law Society is praising President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s recent account in regards to the urgent passage of the Land Rights Act.

According to a press release, the President made the statement when she met with the Chair of the United Nations Commission, Olof Skoog, during his recent visit to Liberia.

The Law Society also restated President Sirleaf’s commitment to the passage of the Land Rights Acts in her 2017 annual message.
The release quotes the President as re-affirming her commitment to prioritizing the issue of Land Rights Acts.

The release also quotes the Law Society as saying, the passage of the Land Rights Acts will be a landmark achievement of the Sirleaf’s Administration, and will address the issue of customary land and customary ownership, among other land related issues.

At the same time, the Law Society says it will work along with communities in four counties, including Bong, Lofa, Margibi and Nimba to undertake a citizen petition that would appeal to the various elected members of the Legislature in these counties to support efforts that would lead to the early passage of the Land Rights Act.
