Liberia’s President Launches “Pro-Poor Agenda

Monrovia, 27 Oct 2018: “Bible for Prosperity” in Liberia is how president George Weah Saturday duped his government’s five-year national development blueprint–pro-poor agenda for prosperity and development.
Adopted nine months into the Weah’s administration, the national development agenda promises attention to all major areas including roads and communication, health. education, agriculture, peace and security, human rights, good governance, accountability and transparency. It also proposes adherence to the rule of law as well as zero tolerance against corruption.

At a gatherings of government officials and  development partners, President Weah launched the development blueprint, also called PADP and spanning January 2019-January 2023.
The Liberian Leader President Weah called for the involvement of “all Liberians and development partners in the implementation of every line in this book”, which the president passionately said he cherishes as ” Bible for prosperity ” in Liberia.
It is unclear if opposition political parties were invited to have a stake in implementation of the pro poor agenda since it also impacts their partisans and supporters.
