Few months to the end of the one-year performance contract cabinet ministers signed, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has threatened to effect mass dismissals and reshuffle in her government.
The Press Secretary Jerolinmek M. Piah who made the disclosure Monday at the Cecil Dennis Auditorium in the
Foreign Ministry did not say how soon the president's action will be effected but he repeatedly said "soon".
"A number of presidential actions, ranging from transfers and reshuffles to dismissals, will be effected soon," Mr. Piah told journalists.
He said the action would be done to "enhance effectiveness, efficiency and productivity as the President endeavors to live up to her promises of delivering to the Liberian people."
The press Secretary added that the pending action would not deter the president from loosing track of her responsibility to govern and deliver her promises to the people.
He said this would make the president to be even "more resolved to remain focused and continuously promote the tenets of good governance as well as the maintenance of peace, security, reconciliation and national development for the people."
The President has often warned her officials to either work in the interest of the state or resign their posts - making way for others to assist in Liberia's postwar recovery programs.
"In this second term, merit, performance, hard work, reward and integrity must all go hand-in-hand to foster the agenda for change we envision for the people. Those who will not measure up to the task will have to give way for others," President Sirleaf warned her ministers while commissioning them recently.
