MONROVIA: The Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), Jerolinmek Matthew Piah, has told reporters in Monrovia that 285 earth-moving equipment will be brought into the country lawfully.

Minister Piah, addressing a news conference yesterday on Capitol Hill in Monrovia clarified that the pronouncement of the 285 machines coming to Liberia was a “conversation” at the just-ended cabinet retreat.

According to Minister Piah, he sees it unnecessary for supporters and non-supporters of the government to spark controversial reactions on what the GOL should do when it comes to lawful proceedings, especially when the GOL is dealing with its flagship national development agenda, styled: ARREST that highlights Agriculture, Roads, Rule of Law, Education, Sanitation and Tourism.

Minister Piah further indicated that the Government of Liberia has not officially concluded on bringing any Earth Moving Equipment to the country, as such, it did not make any formal pronouncements to the effect.

According to Minister Piah, the Government will secure those road machines but in line with the Laws of Liberia.

He stressed that the equipment will be available but their importation will be done properly and in accordance to the laws of the country.

According to the Information Minister, “There are many options that can be used in securing them.”

“Government did not decide and has not made a decision on the earth-moving equipment. There was only a video that came out unveiling the vehicles that the government is looking at but has not decided to have yellow machines, and once it is concluded, that will be announced,” he said.

He said that the presentation was showcasing what the government intends to do but has not reached that decision.

He emphasized that all lawful procedures will be met before a decision can be reached.
