Executive Mansion Not Conducive For Boakai To Start Work? By: Julius Konton


Presidential Press Secretary Kula Fofana has disclosed that the Executive Mansion, the office of the President of Liberia is not conducive, neither for President Joseph Nyuma Boakai to begin work. “Some of the floors and ceilings are not in good condition, more work still needs to be done before President Boakai can commence work from the Executive Mansion, ” she further emphasized. Addressing Executive Mansion reporters on Friday, February 2, 2024, Madam Fofana stated that the Liberian leader is excited to go at the Executive Mansion to do the Liberian people’s work but at the same time, the facility needs to be a representation of the Presidency. According to  her,  President Boakai will this February begin work at the Mansion as current renovation works are still ongoing. It can be recalled that the past administration headed by former President George Weah did a renovation work at the Executive Mansion. Moreover, official work before the expiration of President Weah’s tenure was done at the Executive Mansion as disclosed to the media even though Madam Fofana did inform the press that the Executive Mansion is still not conducive and not in readiness for active work of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.  Meanwhile, the Executive Mansion has confirmed the reassigned of security officers who were on duty when President Joseph Boakai was partially attached by an unknown men during the graduation ceremony of the United Methodist University.  As full investigation into the matter continues, Madam Fofana told reporters that the Liberian leader is safe and that the unknown man had no evil motives. “He just wanted to meet the President and felt that the occasion was the best place but it was actually unfortunate for him and the timing  was wrong, he himself personally reported himself to the Liberia National Police,” she  noted. According to her, the office of the President takes seriously the security of the Liberian leader and will do all in their power legally to protect the Chief Executive. “We will get the final report following the end of the investigation and we will again brief you all,” she assured.
