“Now, someone would throw the argument of JNB spending a lot on Celebrations Commemorations, and State Vist as opposed to what Weah spent in 2023. This is the justification; the Boakai government is a newly inaugurated leadership that is poised to make many diplomatic outreaches in the sub-region- the ECOWAS States( like the recent one in Ivory Coast), the continent, and the international communities( UN, IMF, World Bank, EU, etc) all geared at fostering progressive bilateral and multilateral relations/ pacts that will attract massive support/ investments that spur significant possibilities for economic development, security, and peace- the socio-economic transformation of the country. This is peculiar to every new government; especially one like the UP-led administration that comes with unwavering determinism and fervent commitment to better the country and its people.” The UP Government says.
