Sometimes, I wish Liberia was the last nation in Africa, if not, the world, to declare her sovereignty. This, could, at least justify the level we are at now. Health care in Liberia is amongst the world’s least, to an extent that even our Health ministers have no faith in the health sector including our doctors. Over a century and half, our education system is in a state of carnage, that our Education ministers would never dare send their families to our high schools and universities. These are the saddened conditions and many others we must strive to change as we head to the 2017 polls.
This election is about improving our lives and increasing life expectancies. It is about building our infrastructures and strengthening our institutions. It is about eradicating child labor and providing economic opportunities for parents. It is about ending rape and making our criminal justice system fair. It is combating inequality and creating an equal society. It is about jobs-creation and unemployment reduction. Importantly, it is about continuing the peace in the face of difficulties!
