  1. Good news and welcoming, if this happens Liberia will change in different ways such infrastructure development, economic growth,etc. For example, a man like me with total of 9 family members have not taken salary for 6 now.you see

  2. This is good news I am happy that the USG has woken up to start taking responsibility for better governance in Liberia. Liberia is backward today because of bad governance and USG fialure to ‘colonize’, I mean put governance systems in place in this colony of theirs.
