Pres. Weah Delivers First State of the Nation Address Today

President George M. Weah

President George Weah will today deliver his first State of the Nation Address to members of the 54th Legislature in a Joint Session. The ceremony starts at 2:00 p.m., but the President will begin his address at 4:00 p.m.

The President’s address to the legislature is in consonance with Article 58 of the 1986 Constitution, which mandates the President of Liberia to report to the legislature on the state of the nation once a year and to present his or her legislative programs for the year. The report covers the economy, health, education, and other facets of the nation.

Article 58 states that the “President shall, on the fourth working Monday in January of each year, present the administration’s Legislative Program, and shall once a year, report to the Legislature on the State of the Republic. In presenting the economic condition, the report shall cover expenditure as well as income.”

The ceremony will take place in the William Richard Tolbert Joint Chambers of the Capitol Building, beginning at 2:00 p.m. with the ushering in of invited guests, according to Mildred Sayon, chief clerk of the House of Representatives.

The Joint Session of the 54th Legislature will be presided over by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bhofal Chambers.

It may be recalled that during his inaugural address on Monday, January 22 at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex, the President promised strong cooperation with lawmakers to impact the living standard of the people of Liberia through the enactment of necessary legislation.

    • You are the imbecile stupid fool! Who the hell do you think you are fool? You know shit about him so don’t talk shit here asshole 😂 you are the stupid unread imbecile!

  1. The president, Mr. Weah, speaks to the nation today. A broad range of topics are expected to be outlined. It is hoped that the fans of the president will conduct themselves professionally. Mr. Weah’s US counterpart, Mr. Trump, delivers his State of the Union speech tomorrow, January 30, at 8pm.

    There some Liberians in the diaspora who hope that the Weah-Taylor team will do all that’s possible to disassociate itself from the practices of the former president, Johnson-Sirleaf’s government. For instance, it should be mandated that all public school students (irrespective of where a public school is located) must have their full set of textbooks. The same concept of “full set” of textbooks for students should apply to teachers. That’s to say that teachers must be given their full set of teacher edition textbooks. Example, if a 5th grade teacher is assigned to teach 5 subjects, that 5th grade teacher must be given 5 textbooks that are labeled “teacher edition textbooks”.

    May God bless Liberia.

  2. I want to be thankful to pres. George M. Weah for his first annual state address. It is my adent hope that those wide range of topics addressed will meet its intended purposes for tg’e benefits of the country and its citizens.

  3. Comment: O GOD of the universe, pls guide my president each day of his life & show him the right way to go in your name I pray Amen.
