MONROVIA: The Senior Political Advisor to President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, Madam MacDella Cooper, has assured that “lost trust” in Liberia will be restored under the presidency of Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

Madam Cooper stressed that President Boakai is resolved and firmly committed to achieving this goal within the International Community including the African Union (AU).

The Senior Presidential Advisor made the statements in an exclusive interview with this Paper over the weekend at her Congo Town residence.

According to her, good governance infrastructures instituted by previous governments before the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government assumed state power in 2018 were totally broken in the last six-year before the inauguration of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai on 22nd of January 2024.

She further narrated that the immediate past government of ex-President George Manneh Weah failed provide responsible leadership to Liberians who had been yearning for justice and accountability in the country.

She stressed that such situation continues to strangulate national healing and reconciliation.

She backed the Government’s effort towards the establishment of war and economic crimes court for Liberia, saying these are signs of restoring hope to victims of war crimes and economic crimes against the state and its people.

Recently, 42 out of 73 members of the House of signed a resolution for the establishment of War and Economic crimes Court in Liberia.

The Resolution calls on President Joseph Boakai to work with the United Nations, international partners, institutions, and civil society organizations for assistance in establishing the Extraordinary Criminal Court in Liberia in a manner that allows the trial of international crimes in accordance with international standards and best practices.

The bill has subsequently been forwarded to the Senate for its concurrence.
However, Cooper said these unfolding are signs of restoring hope to victims of war crimes and economic crimes against the state and its people.

“We promised Liberians to ensure that the rule of law is respected and those who had committed war and economic crimes against our people are held accountable for their actions against our people who have cries for many years, for which they ensured the Rescue mission was given state power,” she stressed.

Madam Cooper: “We meant a big hole in coffer of the country: Nothing was there for the government to start with as government is continuity, but those perpetrators who looted state resources over the years will account for their actions individually for sanctity to be restored. I want to drive from here my county River Gee and even in Maryland counties but because of bad leadership, we are unable to have easy access to these roads in our country. However, under the Leadership of President Joseph Boakai, those roads will be reconditioned to give access to our people.”
