President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has made it crystal clear that she has no intention to quit power before the end of her tenure. The President said she would remain in power until the election of a new government.
Speaking during an interview with the host of a popular radio talk show, Mamadee Diakate, Madam Sirleaf said she will not resign ahead of the election as being speculated.
"I will end my job; in fact, I will end it with Liberia being better," Madam Sirleaf said confidently.
Currently, her government faces a serious budget shortfall amid economic hardship intersperse with hunger, poverty and a huge unemployment rate, predominantly affecting young people.
She said there were too many negative assertions about the country, most of which, she said were mere manufactured. She called on Liberians to be positive about their country and avoid portraying Liberia in a negative sense.
Madam Sirleaf's comment about ending her tenure ends speculations that the President would have resigned by mid 2015 or 2016. Sources in government had confided in this paper that the President's health could impede her ability to end her tenure.
There were also speculations that a transitional team would be named if the head of state is sure of stepping aside.
