Change the Way You Do Business

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has emphasized the need for economically viable nations of the world and international organizations to assist Liberia and Africa to develop their infrastructures as a way of improving other aspects of the continent’s development.

She said if the people have infrastructure such as roads and basic social services such as electricity and water, this will give rise to the quality of life on the African continent and eventually improve other services like education, quality healthcare programs, and boost the agriculture sector of each country.

‘Access to Justice for Women Remains Limited’

Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai has declared that access to justice for women remains limited due to the difficult court processes, the negative attitudes of law enforcers, inadequate capacity to process caseloads as well as inadequate staffing both in law enforcement and adjudication.

The Vice President made the statement last Friday when he officially launched the ‘He for She’ program, a solidarity movement for gender equality developed by UN Women to engage men and boys as advocates and agents of change for the achievement of gender equality.
