MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President Joseph Boakai has reaffirmed his commitment to fighting public corruption and waste.

President Boakai said:” My corruption fight is focused on my officials who are always reminded that they do not only serve at my will and pleasure but for the Liberian people.”

In an interview with the BBC Africa Daily Program, the Liberian Leader said:” The backwardness of the Country is largely due to public corruption.”

President Boakai said while he is meticulous about the appointment of individuals in Government, those already appointed are constantly warned of the consequences of their actions.

According to him, the Liberian Government will endeavor to use the Country’s resources wisely and inspire Liberians to work hard to improve their lives.

At the same time, President Joseph Boakai has nominated additional officials to positions in the Liberian Government affecting the Ministry of Health.

Those appointed are Martha Morris, Deputy Minister for Administration, Malayah Tamba Cheiyo, Deputy Minister for Planning and Policy, Dr. Teyah Sackie Moore, Assistant Minister for Curative Services and Dr. Caullau Howe, Assistant Minister for Prevention Services.

Others are George Jacobs, Assistant Minister for Planning and Policy, Dr. Anthony Fortune, Assistant Minister of Vital Statistics, and Richard Kollie, Assistant Minister for Administration.

The Executive Mansion said the latest appointments supersede any previously published in similar agencies and positions.

The nomination is subject to confirmation by the Liberian Senate where applicable.
