President Joseph Nyumah Boakai has re-emphasized his government’s commitment to transparency and accountability, but clarified that commissioning comprehensive audit for past government is not witch hunt. As part of said commitment, the Liberian leader reechoed his pledge to commission a comprehensive audit of the stewardship of the previous Government. “We want to clarify that this audit is not meant to be a witch hunt rather, it is a necessary step towards understanding the extent of the challenges we face and ensuring that those responsible for any wrongdoing are held accountable,” he re-emphasized.  President Boakai pointed out that his government also acknowledges the seriousness of the economic challenges facing the nation and is determined to implement measures that will promote fiscal responsibility.  “Most importantly, we want to send a clear message to our public officials: misusing public resources will not go unpunished,” he noted.   Speaking at the graduation ceremony of the United Methodist University, President Boakai told the gathering that corruption impedes the development of any country and steals the future of generations unborn. The Chief Executive used the occasion to call for the unwavering support, understanding, and active participation of Liberians in rebuilding their Mother Land. He, at the same time, renewed his pledge to restore not only state institutions, but also the integrity and prestige of the country.  “The task ahead is monumental, but with our youth having the right perspective and a new mindset, we are confident that Liberia will rise from the ashes stronger and more prosperous,” he told the gathering.  “The road to recovery may seem daunting, but together, we will overcome and build a Liberia that stands as a beacon of integrity, progress, and prosperity, Let us work hard towards a brighter future for all, Let us never shun our resolve to always THINK LIBERIA, LOVE LIBERIA so that together we can BUILD,” he added.
