At the opening of his government’s third cabinet retreat which formally got underway on Monday, July 11, 2022, in Ganta, Nimba County, the President of the Republic of Liberia, Dr George Manneh Weah challenged his officials to redouble their efforts toward the realization of the government’s development objectives which is enshrined in the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).

In a special statement marking the official opening of the retreat, President Weah hailed the Cabinet for the able and effective execution of their respective functions during the last period under review, but equally queried them to reshape their focus because more remains to be done.

The President acknowledged the tremendous progress of the last four years in the implementation of development projects across the country, which status he said is imperative to review, to ensure that they are aligned with the government’s goals and intentions to take our country to its desired destination.

Consistent with the theme for the Retreat, “Pushing Forward for A Better Liberia,” The President encouraged members of his government to team themselves as to the things they must do “to ensure that Liberia is better than what it was before its inception.”

According to the Liberian Leader, finding answers to such unanswered questions “must be the primary focus of the Cabinet throughout this Retreat.”

President Weah said he expects that participants will actively engage in the Retreat, which comes ahead of what he termed as a crucial period for his Administration.’

The President called for the cabinet’s active participation in the Performance Management and Compliance System, which, according to him, requires all Ministries, Agencies, and Commissions to develop a comprehensive, critical, and analytical report for policies and programs, particularly on those instituted during the government’s stewardship.

He said in October 2023, just 16 months from now, “the Liberian people will have the constitutional opportunity to reward us for the results we are achieving. It is therefore imperative that all hands are on deck with a full commitment to ensure that we get a resounding victory.”

President Weah used the occasion to debrief on recent unfolding developments in the sub-region, specifically ECOWAS; the President mentioned the election of a new chairperson of the Bloc, the appointment of a new President of the ECOWAS Commission, and many other areas.
