Fomer VP Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

Former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has condemned the violence in Ganta, Nimba County, and called for calm in the wake of a resurgence of land disputes that resulted in the destruction of properties.

The Former Vice President pointed out that the settlement of land disputes through the court is the best alternative and those aggrieved should take advantage of the process and refrain from making utterances that undermine peace and stability in the county, a statement from His office said.

Ambassador Boakai stressed that no dispute or misunderstanding should be allowed to stand in the way of the hard-earned peace in Liberia.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the Former Vice President also expressed concern over series of unexplained deaths in the Country and restated his earlier call on the Government to find the perpetrators and bring them before the law. He said, it is the constitutional right of citizens to live in peace. The Former Vice President has always spoken against unresolved crimes, it provides safe haven for criminals.

The statement further quotes the Former Vice President as calling on the Government to take steps in restoring confidence in the banking sector, noting that the printing of new bank notes remains an unrealistic exercise if the money will end up in private vaults for fear of lack of confidence in the banks.

In another development, the Former Vice President expressed concern over the closure of the Curran Hospital in Zorzor, Lofa County and called on the Government to ensure that the major teaching and referral facility in Lofa remains opened.

He expressed dismay that the health care delivery system in northern Liberia is seriously undermined by the closure of the Curran Hospital in Zorzor.
