Pres. Boakai Makes Initial Nominations in Gov.

by Edward Tamba

MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President Joseph Boakai has made initial nominations in government, affecting the Ministries of Finance and Development Planning, State for Presidential Affairs, and National Security.

Those appointed are Boima Kamara, Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Sylvester Grigsby, Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, and Samuel Kofi Woods, National Security Advisor.

Others are Gregory Coleman, Inspector General of the Liberia National Police, and Sam Gaye, Director of the Executive Mansion Protection Service (EPS).

The Executive Mansion said the nominations are pending a confirmation hearing by the Liberian Senate.

Both Mr. Boima Kamara and Gregory Coleman previously served the positions under the administration of Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

Meanwhile, President Boakai has pledged his commitment to working along with the National Legislature and Judicial Branches of the Government of Liberia to improve the lives of Liberians.

He said:” The Executive will coordinate efforts with the National Legislature to enact good laws that will directly impact the people of Liberia.”

President Boakai then attributed his election and inauguration to the exceptional determination of the Liberian people for real change, adding that amid political differences, he is now the Leader for all Liberians at home and abroad.

At the same time, the Liberian Leader has vowed not to make what he termed as ’false assurances’ to Liberians but to be sincere in a genuine pursuit of his “Rescue Mission.”

President Boakai said:” I am aware of the hard times citizens are faced with, the culture of impunity and corruption in both and high places, and I can assure you that it is similar conditions that my Government has come to power to rescue.”

Delivering his Inaugural Address on Monday, January 22, 2024, at the Capitol, President Boakai, however, added that the Government’s plan to fix ills inherited must go together with realistic expectations.

The Liberian Leader then promised to act within the first one hundred days of his administration, and then diligently pursue his “Rescue Mission.”
