Success Minor Calls on Liberians to Embrace Sanctions in Good Faith

by Francis Pelenah Jr,

Monrovia Liberia, December 12, 2023 – The President of ALJA’s Midwest Chapter, Success Minor is calling on Liberians to embrace the series of sanctions imposed on some officials of the Liberian Government by the United States.

Minor believes these sanction regimes will serve as eye-opener for Liberians to hold public officials accountable for their stewardship.

The Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas official believes the action by the US government will give special attention to the fight against corruption in Liberia.

Success Minor thanked the United States Government for taking those giant steps aimed at tackling corruption and human rights in poor countries such as Liberia.

His reaction comes a day after the United States government announced designation of three additional Liberian government officials for sanctions over involvement in ‘significant corruption and human rights abuses’.

They are Finance Minister Samuel Tweah, Margibi County Senator Emmanuel Nuquay and Grand Kru County Senator Albert Chie.

“I know it will be sickening to the stomach but I personally believe this is the best way forward. I wish this process would’ve started sooner rather than later, but it’s never too late to make a change” the former Montserrado County District 13 Representative Aspirant added.

Success Minor noted that the move will remind public officials that they must serve their country and people without stealing from them.

According to him, these global anti-corruption and human rights efforts, spearheaded by the United States, will go a long way in preventing abuse of state resources and saving the country millions of dollars needed to build the Liberia that all Liberians envisaged.
