ALP’s Political Leader Craves For Reduction In Presidency Tenure; Maintains Support For Boakai’s 2023 Presidential Quest

By: J. Peter S. Dennis
B**G , CORRESPONDENT.

GBARNGA, Liberia: All Liberian Party (ALP) Standard Bearer has called for the reduction in the tenure of the Presidency for the forward match of the Country.
Mr. Benoni Wilfred Urey said, the backwardness of Liberia is attributed to the prolong stay of the President in office.
Article 50 of the Liberian constitution provides a six (6) year office term for the presidency and vice presidency including representatives.
Each president is backed for two tenures in office.
The All Liberian Party Standard bearer craved for an amendment in the constitution.
It is not however clear what has triggered this latest call by Mr. Benoni Wilfred Urey- a strong supporter for Amb Joseph Boakai’s presidential ambitions.
Background
In December 2020, the government of Liberia had planned to bundle the eight amendments into three questions, with one question on amending article 28 (citizenship), one on amending articles 45, 47, 48, 49 and 50 on the terms of office of the President, Senate and House of Representatives, and one on amending article 83 to change the date of general elections and decrease the time the Elections Commission has to investigate complaints.
However, this was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, as article 92 requires amendments to be voted on separately.
Opposition and Urey’s earlier reactions
In December of 2020, Mr. Benoni Wilfred Urey at a meeting in the capital Monrovia said “We are not participating in a referendum because it has not met the criteria spelled out in the constitution”.
“If they go ahead with it that is their business -- we will not respect the results,” he added.
The opposition Collaborating Political Parties (former Liberty Party, Unity Party, Alternative National Congress and All Liberian Party) attempted to appeal to the Supreme Court, but were unsuccessful. Despite reports the changes would lead to George Weah’s third presidential term like in other Western African neighbors, Weah denied the move
Results
According to the an NEC 2020 data, the amendments on reducing the term of presidency and allowing dual citizenship won a majority of votes. The National Election Commission said, voters said yes to all eight questions asked on the referendum in five of fifteen counties in the country.
Final results were released on 1st April 2021, with a narrow majority in favor of all eight proposals, but none meeting the two-thirds quorum required, resulting in all proposals being rejected.

Support for Boakai
At the same time, Mr. Urey has maintained his support for former Vice President, Amb. Joseph Numah Boakai stressing that the country’s progress rests upon him.
The former Maritime Commissioner during the Charles Taylor regime believes, Hon. Joseph Boakai is the single best choice who has come to emancipate Liberians after the 2023 general elections.
He urged Liberians to elect Boakai and “save the country”.
He made the assertions during the Second National Convention of the All Liberian Party in Gbarnga, B**g County.

At least 14 die after buses collide in Ivory Coast

Source : BBC NEWS

At least 14 people died and dozens others were injured on Thursday after two buses collided on the outskirts of Ivory Coast’s capital, Yamoussoukro.

The victims who died were nine men and five women, while more than 70 were injured and were taken to hospitals.

One of the buses was carrying mourners including foreigners heading to a funeral of a woman who had died in Europe, the Ivorian press agency reported.

The exact cause of the accident has not been established.

In a statement posted on Facebook, the Ivorian transport minister expressed condolences to the families of the deceased.

The ministry also called on motorists and road users to be more vigilant to avoid such accidents.

Deadly road accidents are common in the West African country amid poorly maintained roads and vehicles. Driver errors also often contribute to the accidents.

06/01/2023

Liberian police say they have seized a huge cache of arms and ammunition at the country's main port and at a private residence outside the capital, Monrovia.

The weapons found at the port of Monrovia were in boxes stacked inside a shipping container, police Inspector General Patrick Sudue told journalists on Thursday.

“[In] the first few boxes that were searched we discovered some heavy, heavy weapons,” he said.

"We’re talking about military weapons in those boxes.”

The cache includes Omega 15 assault rifles, Rock River LAR guns, and double-barrel automatic machine guns which were displayed to journalists.

He said some of the ammunition found did not have arms to match - and suggested that the guns were either still hidden or could be on the way.

A preliminary investigation has named a Liberian national living in the US as the consignor.

A search in the suspect’s home in the outskirts of Monrovia uncovered a consignment of arms hidden in the ceiling, the police boss said.

He said the Liberian government was considering asking the US to extradite suspect.

The motive of the shipment remains unclear in a country that is still reeling from the impact of civil wars that killed an estimated 250,000 people and ended in 2003.

Liberia’s next general elections are due in 10 October.

Liberia: Rural Communities Angry with Weah Gov’t

Credit: Daily Observer Newspaper
.... While communities don’t get the funds they are owed, Liberian Legislators were recently gifted over US$3 million for legislative support projects.

Communities affected by logging concessions across Liberia have accused President George Weah's government of neglect, saying their livelihood is being affected by the government's failure to settle its debt obligation of US$1.5 million.

The money is “an outstanding balance of US$2.7 million” allocated in the 2022 budget as part-payment of an overall US$6.23 million debt owed by the government in land rental to communities affected by logging concessions.

“Our people are affected every day by these companies and the only way to give us some relief is by paying us our percentage,” the National Union of Community Forestry Development Committee (NUCFDC) said at its 5th General Assembly in Gbarnga, B**g County on January 5.

“So it is also regrettable that for the US$2.7 million allotted in the 2022 budget, the government has paid US$1.2 million with an upstanding amount of US$1.5 million within the fiscal year of 2022,” the union said.

However, the government, as per the 2022 budget expenditure report, is claiming full payment of the US$2.7 million owed to the forest community. The government in that year allocated US$746,292 and US$2,000,000 respectively as payment for community forest sharing and forestry arrears.

By law, 30 percent of land rental fees the government collects from logging companies belong to communities the concessionaires operated. The fee is calculated as the product of the total size of the concession, US$2.50 for large-scale forest management contracts, and US$1.25 for small timber sale contracts (TSCs).

But for years, the Weah government and that of his predecessor — former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf — failed to do so, violating the National Forestry Reform Law of 2006, which mandates it to transfer 30 percent of land rental fees, paid by logging companies, to communities for development purposes.

In most cases, protests have to be staged before these communities get paid and this year was no different. The US$1.2 million, which the Union claimed the government had paid, came as a result of a protest action stage three months to the end of the 2022 budget cycle.

While communities don’t get the funds they are owed, Liberian Legislators were recently gifted over US$3 million for legislative support projects, while the constituents they represent continue to live in poverty even though they are the custodians of the forests.

A report by the Volunteer Partnership Agreement (VPA) in 2021 disclosed that the government issued US$60.24 million invoiced to the seven logging companies, of which a total of US$33.8 million was paid by forestry concessions companies.

However, a remaining US$26.40 million remains unpaid.

Out of this amount collected by the Government of Liberia, the 30% share for communities amounted to US$10.15 million of which the government has paid just US$3.92 million through the National Benefit Sharing Trust Board as of October 2022; the government still is in arrear to communities a total amount of US$6.23 million.

Forestry is one of the biggest contributors to the Liberian budget, with the sector generating US$8,148,559 and US$4,023,280 of total revenue in the 2018/2019, 2020-2021 period, according to the Liberia Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (LEITI).

The outstanding amount also undermines Liberia’s commitment to the European Union, which calls for the fair sharing of timber resources. It also contravenes the community pillar of the country’s forestry reform, which ended decades in which rural areas did not benefit from forest resources and had no say in forest governance.

“Unfortunately, the draft 2023 budget does not have any amount appropriated for communities against the amount the government owes to communities in land rental fees,” the union said.

The draft 2023 budget, which is before the legislature for debate, appropriates US$746,292 only for community forest sharing and nothing for forestry arrears, for which the communities land rental fee is paid.

“It is for this reason that we are calling on our legislators, who the draft budget is before, for debate to ensure that the community remaining arrears is appropriated in the 2023 budget.”

According to the Union, lawmakers must consider the interest of the community people “as they will need their votes in the upcoming elections.”

The National Union of Community Forestry Development Committee (NUCFDCs) comprises 23 CFDC groups within 11 of the 15 Counties of Liberia.

The Director of Administration and Finance at the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Community Court of Justice has called for a high level of cultural vicariousness to be displayed among member states in the region.

Chief Dr. William Deiyaan Towah, speaking at a program marking his Coronation of a Chieftaincy title in Ibagwa Nike Kingdom Enugu State, Federal Republic of Nigeria, said Culture diversity helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups, particularly in the region among States. "It is a hallmark to effect community development programs", Dr. Towah told hundreds of citizens in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

According to him, it helps recognize and respect the many ways of coexistence that are not necessarily from a specific religion, tribe, or country but to interact with others across the region that can navigate and build bridges to trust, respect, and understand each others’ cultures.

Towah, recounting the numerous historic relationship between the Liberian and Nigerian Republic noted that “Nigeria greatly contributed to the Peace that Liberia currently enjoys”. He recorded the myriad sacrifices the Nigerian army (peacekeepers) give to Liberians under the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), which was established in September 2003 to monitor a ceasefire agreement, following the resignation of jailed Liberian President Charles Taylor and the conclusion of the second Liberian Civil War respectively.

During his address to the region, the Liberian diplomat serving the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice was presented with a surprise accolade by the Nigeria Union of Journalists Southeast Chapter for his immense services to community development programs in Africa. Dr. Towah, at the same time, was inducted by King Dr. Emmanuel O. Ogwu as a Son of the Igbo land and crowned him a Chieftaincy title ‘UGUMBA’, marking him the second Liberian stateman to receive such a prestigious honor.

The ECOWAS Diplomat further added that the title is an honor and it illustrates the bilateral ties between the two nations noting that his services to humanity and for always pushing the one Africa agenda for sustainable peace have resonated with his kingdom. King Ogwu, added that the title is the highest honor in the Kingdom and urged Africans to build a network of love and accept cultural diversity as it’s the best way to effect goodies between countries.

At the same time, the Liberian Diplomat has met with several groupings including the Business Community of Enugu Kingdom, and Key Stakeholders in the spirit of presenting the business picture of Liberia for an opportunity for investments.
Before Dr. Towah's ascendancy at ECOWAS Community Court of Justice, he served in many positions in Liberia including but not limited to Managing Director, National Housing Authority (NHA), Vice President for Operations, National Housing & Savings Bank (NHSB); Deputy Minister for Expenditure & Debt Management, Ministry of Finance, Republic of Liberia; Director General, and National Food Assistance Agency.

Deputy Minister for Administration, Ministry of Posts & Telecommunications, Monrovia, Liberia, and Deputy Minister for Administration & Acting Minister respectively, Ministry of Agriculture among others.

While in the United States of America, Dr. Towah, among other things worked as a guest lecturer, Social Economics, at the Graduate School of Business, Saint Mary’s (Catholic) University, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA; Manager, Homeward Bound Incorporated, Brooklyn Park, MN, USA and Associate, TCF Bank, Mpls, Minnesota, USA.

The challenge before all of us now is to build the non-tribal, democratic Liberia that fulfils the dreams of all Liberia says Dr. William Deiyan Towah.

My Fellow Liberians.
Christmas should be a time of joy and happiness, when families come together to celebrate the festive season.

New Year should be a time of looking forward full of hope and making resolution.
For decades now many have had no reason to celebrate, and little to look forward into the new year ahead.

This year too, brought much pain and suffering. Many lost their loved ones as a result of poverty, disease, ignorance and criminal violence that continue unabated. Millions continue to live in abject poverty due to a promised betrayed.

But now, and once more, the future holds the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
We start 2023 with renewed vigour, for it is our year of hope.

This coming November must result in the elections of a government that stands for all its people, a government that has as its priority the building of a better life for all Liberians, bringing jobs, security and above all, peace.

The challenge before all of us now is to build the non-tribal, democratic Liberia that fulfils the dreams of all Liberians.

Allow me, on behalf of my family and the Executive Committee of the Gedeh Ambassadors Inc, as well as Liberians of goodwill, to wish you all a joyous, peaceful Christmas, and a Prosperous New Year!

Dr. William Deiyan Towah is a native of Grand Gedeh County -Liberia, he holds Ph.D. in Public Policy with an emphasis in Leadership and Public Management from Walden University in the United States of America.

Prior to his ascendancy at the ECOWAS Court of Justice Dr. Towah, served in many positions in Liberia. They include the Managing Director, of the National Housing Authority (NHA), Vice President for Operations, of the National Housing & Savings Bank (NHSB); Deputy Minister for Expenditure & Debt Management, of the Ministry of Finance, Republic of Liberia; Director General, and National Food Assistance Agency. Deputy Minister for Administration, Ministry of Posts & Telecommunications, Monrovia, Liberia, and Deputy Minister for Administration & Acting Minister respectively, Ministry of Agriculture.
