The Liberia Renaissance Office Incorporated (LIROI) wishes to thank Liberians at home and abroad for their warm and positive response and overwhelming interest in its principles and objectives.
LIROI was established a little over two months ago as a mass based citizens’ movement, open to all, including Liberian professionals, diplomats, academics, students, workers, and religious and civil society actors, at home and in the diaspora, with shared values and aspirations, to usher in a NEW ERA in Liberia by promoting democracy, economic transformation and sustainable development in our Country. LIROI is committed to undertaking, but not limited to the following:
‘LIROI is in the process of launching community engagement initiatives to promote greater publicawareness of its objectives, identify champions to further these objectives, and develop a network based on shared values and principles. Work is ongoing to develop web-based portal to provide regular up-dates of the movement’s activities, and to give easy access to Liberians at home and abroad who are desirous of actively participating inthe Movement’s activities and programs,’ a statement issued in Monrovia by its Coordinator Hon. George Wisner said.
Meanwhile, LIROI welcomes the effort of leaders of the Liberty Party, a constituent member of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), to resolve internal disputes and reconcile the Party. The CPP is as strong as each of its constituent members. The LIROI also congratulates the Alternative National Congress on the successful holding of its extra-ordinary Convention. It is important that all constituent parties of the CPP uphold the tenets of democracy. The CPP must set good example and present itself as a mature alternative to re-focus the country on the priority tasks of relieving the Liberian people from the current quagmire in 2023. In this light, we particularly call on the Leadership of the CPP to quickly resolve all outstanding conflicts and disputes that have the propensity to undermine the cohesiveness of the collaboration and dash the hopes and aspirations of the vast majority of Liberians that have reposed confidence in it.
The LIROI is committed to working with the opposition, particularly in the CPP, in promoting its objective of democratically unseating the CDC-led Government at the polls in 2023. However, our continued support is premised on the assumption that the CPP will embrace the consolidation of democracy and the promotion of economic transformation and sustainable development in line with our core values and objectives.
Liberia has been present at every stage of the construction of the international system from the League of Nations to the United Nations Organization, the African Union, ECOWAS, and the Mano River Union.
We can no longer tolerate people coming to office to play and have fun with power, with flagrant disregard for human rights, mysterious deaths and disappearances, rampant corruption, economic mismanagement and personalization of political power.
As we approach Liberia’s Bicentennial, we must prepare the country for a NEW ERA of inclusiveness, unity, equal opportunity and prosperity for all.
