MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President George Manneh Weah has renewed his Government’s commitment to upholding the tenets of press freedom and the protection of Liberian journalists.

He told media executives that he harbors no hate for them and their work, contrary to insinuations about his commitment to a press media environment.

The Liberian leader said his relationship with the media spanned over the years and assured Liberians and the media that he remains an ardent supporter of free speech, and freedom of the press.

President Weah spoke Wednesday, April 11, 2018, during an interactive engagement with executives of the Liberian media at his Foreign Ministry Office.

He said:” No member of the Government will attack anyone or group of citizens for criticizing him and the Government on issues they think the Government is wrongly proceeding with.”

He encouraged the media to criticize the government but urged them to mention the good things being done in the country.

President Weah reminded the media of their responsibility to the development of Liberia.

Responding to the issue involving journalist Jonathan Paye-layLeh, President Weah said he has nothing against the BBC Reporter.
