MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Media Coordination Committee of the Joint Presidential Transitional Team is convening a major media engagement forum later today in Monrovia.

A statement quotes the Chair of the Committee, Jonathan Paye-Layleh, as saying the gathering will take place at the Ministry of Information.

According to the statement, media managers, Managing Editors, and Editors from both Electronic and Print are expected to discuss and finalize the accreditation process for journalists ahead of the inauguration.

Mr. Paye-Layleh said: “Accreditation for international journalists and media institutions will take place after Monday’s media engagement in the coming days.”

Media pundits say the forum leading to accreditation is crucial to smooth and effective media coverage for the ensuing inaugural ceremonies to avoid the recurrence of a stand-off between state security and media practitioners.

Meanwhile, The Inaugural Committee Chair of the Joint Presidential Transitional Team has announced significant progress at designated venues for the successful hosting of inaugural ceremonies for President-elect, Joseph Boakai on January 22.

The Inaugural Committee Chair, Madam Miatta Fahnbulleh, said:” Preparations have intensified at the Capitol Building, Centennial Pavilion, Antoinette Tubman Stadium, and the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia and Paynesville City, respectively.”

Madam Fahnbulleh said the Official Inaugural Program will be held at the Capitol Building, on Monday, January 22.

Other activities befitting the inaugural ceremonies will include cultural activities, the Kukatunum Peace Festival, and the Agricultural Fair.

They are scheduled to be held at the Centennial Pavilion, Antoinette Tubman Sports Stadium, and Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex on January 18, 19, and 20, respectively.

In a related development, a member of the Transitional Team, Culture Ambassador, Juli Endee, said the team is erecting a structure on Providence Island as part of activities marking the inauguration of President-elect, Joseph Boakai.

Ambassador Endee noted that the Island serves as an attraction point for Liberia’s history and rich cultural heritage and is being given a face-lift ahead of the inauguration.

She disclosed that it is an initiative of the Information Ministry, Crusaders for Peace, in collaboration with the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders.

Ambassador Endee said:” There will be traditional welcoming for guests at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) and the visitation of Liberian historic sites.”

The Liberian Cultural Ambassador noted that the Heritage Square on Ashmund Street will be used as one of the iconic centers for sightseeing.
