Former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai says the country lacksgood leadership and for this, he is the best person to deliver Liberians from the several problems the country is faced with.
Speaking during his appearance on Sky 107.1 FM (50 50 program with T. Max Jlateh) on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 in Monrovia, former Vice President Boakai maintained that there is no Liberian politician well prepared than him to move the country forward come the 2023 elections.
The Unity Party Standard Bearer added that based on his long time experience in national leadership, he is the only well suited person to provide mature leadership to transform the nation to better stage, having served as Agriculture Minister and Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC) and that of the Liberia Produce Marketing Corporation (LPMC) before becoming Vice President of Liberia.
According to the former Vice President, leadership is not about “Yourself but stewardship and making opportunities for everyone irrespective to their parties or tribes.”
The former Vice President pointed out that, “It’s the matter of knowing our country’s problem and finding the solution to it and should be the focus of any good leader.”
Under his leadership, he vowed, “I will build the country’s economy better than ever before because I know the solution to our problems.”
Going further, the former Vice President emphasized that there have been no investors while others have shut down since the ascendancy of President George Manneh Weah.
“The country is not for youths neither old folks or party, but for everyone. After winning with a party, you form a government which should be inclusive, but President Weah is running the country on the basis of partisans, which is undermining the state of the nation’s economy day by day,” Joe Boakai said.
Meanwhile, former VP Boakai pointed to four basic areas or key priorities needed to move Liberia forward, which he boasted of having the solution to. He named them as Agriculture, Road, Tourism and Sanitation (ARTS).
