Executive Mansion Releases First ‘Diary’ On Pres. Weah
By Justice R. Clarke
The Executive Mansion through the office of the Press Secretary has officially released its first ‘Presidential Diary’, a video documentary which highlights the achievements and national engagements of President George Weah since he took office three months ago.
The January to March 2018 Issue was posted on the Executive Mansion official website, “www.emansion.gov.lr” and its Facebook page.The Diary features presidential activities ranging from the day President Weah was sworn into office on January 22 to the day he inspected the Balli Island at the Mesurado River for the construction of a mini-Monrovia City.
The video also includes the historic move by the President to construct the “14” Military Hospital, the payment of examination fees for high school students nationwide, the securing of millions of dollars in grants and aids from the World Bank Group and friendly nations, and the employment of measures that seek to stabilize the “broke” economy and revamp the broken health system.
The Diary also showcases the President’s intervention for the reduction in the price of rice, the holding of consultations with business executives and medical practitioners, the inauguration of a
court house in Bomi County, and the launching of the “Weah for Clean City” campaign in Monrovia along with First Lady Clar and Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee.
The Liberian leader is also spotted in the documentary kindling reconciliation among Bong County politicians while he was in the provincial capital, Gbarnga, to launch the ongoing National County Sports Tournament.
It can be recalled that in his inaugural address, President Weah promised to ‘talk less and do more’ and that his presidency should not be judged by the eloquence of his speeches but by the quality of the decisions he will make to develop Liberia and to improve the lives of the citizenry..
So far, the young Government, which already enjoys enormous popularity, appears to be receiving good ratings by the vast majority of Liberians both at home and in the diaspora probably owing to the rather practical nature in which the Weah-led Administration moves to
achieve tangible results by sincerely delivering on his campaign promises.
Of late, news about the building of a Coastal Highway to the Southeastern counties; the construction of an overhead bridge from Sinkor to Gardnersville, coupled with the recent approval of funds to jumpstart the construction of the 200-bedroom military teaching
hospital appear to be quite amazing to the ears of many citizens’.
