The People Of Liberia have welcomed the New Year (2015) with sanguinity and resilience as the country continues to face a health issue that is still striding in border towns and communities as the population strives on thread of optimism.

 

Last Year Left a horrible memory as Ebola annihilated more than 2,000 Liberian citizens, leaving the entire nation at the mercy of GOD. Thankfully, the international community and partners, led by the United States, came to the rescue of Liberia. Initially, it didn't seem likely that Liberians would have survived and hopes had faded because the capacity of government to contain the virus had weakened immensely. Notwithstanding, we're not out of the woods yet, however, at this point, GOD has played his part and it is left with Liberia to fulfill their part of the responsibility.

In Her New Year statement, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is calling on all Liberians to reconcile, discard old habits, grievances and differences and begin afresh. “As we start this New Year, let us begin anew, putting old habits, old grievances and old difference behind us. Let us carry the torch of reconciliation and compromise,” she urged all Liberians.

According To An Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the assertion in a nationwide address on the occasion of the beginning of the New Year, wishing all compatriots a happy and healthy 2015.

As We Begin the New Year, the tasks ahead of us as a nation and people are immense, and it becomes the responsibility of all Liberians to reconcile their differences and compromise where they disagreed during the past year. It is important as a people and government that we reconcile because too much is at stake.

However, President Johnson-Sirleaf must lead the way to reconciliation. She must reconcile her differences with her party, which is obviously in disarray, and then reconcile with certain officials and personalities such as Cllr. Varney Sherman, the Unity Party's chairman, businessman turned politician Benoini Urey, and others considered as her political nemesis whom she may have had problems with or are not on speaking terms.

The Year 2014 was not only dominated by the Ebola Virus Disease, but there were rancor amongst Liberians, most of whom were and are still disillusioned over the way and manner in which this government is shoddily handling the resources of the country, especially the oil blocks. President Johnson-Sirleaf must understand that the few years left in her tenure are crucial and she has the opportunity now to reconcile her people and transform the human suffering by ensuring that Liberians benefit from the country's resources.

This Year, We hope President Sirleaf takes a particular action on corruption and several issues; ensure that the resentment of the people is not translated into political unrest. Remember Madam President, you still have the opportunity to do better and leave a legacy or go down as one of Liberia's worst leaders in history. The choice is yours!
