MONROVIA, Sept.18 (LINA) – Defense Minister Rtd. Major General Daniel Dee Ziankahn, has assured Liberians that statements coming from some politicians are mere posturing that does not represent any major security threat to the country.

According to Minister Ziankahn, he doesn’t see the coming December 8 Senatorial Election as the biggest test to the democracy of Liberia as perceived by others, stating that the biggest test was the 2017 General and Presidential Elections. Read more...

CPP endorses Edith Goongloe-Weh

Describing the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) primary in the northern Liberian City of Sanniquellie as bad example for Liberian politics, the chairman of the CPP and political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander B. Cummings says the parties would push Madam Edith Gongloe-Weh as their candidate for the pending December 8 senatorial election in that county.

Currency that never gains gets lifeline from Ghana central bank

The Bank of Ghana sells US dollars to stabilise the cedi and closely monitors foreign-exchange trading.

Ghana's cedi has weakened every year since at least 1994. Now the central bank appears to have drawn a line in the sand, ready to intervene should the currency slip out of the tight range it's held since May.

The Bank of Ghana has sold dollars in the spot and forward markets to stabilize the cedi, and closely monitors foreign-exchange trading to keep speculation to a minimum, according to traders and analysts who spoke to Bloomberg.

The central bank is well-armed with foreign-exchange reserves after a $3 billion Eurobond sale in February. Read more...

Open Letter to Prince Yormie Johnson

To: Prince Yormie Johnson
From: Rufus S. Berry II, MBA

Dear Mr. Johnson,

I don’t expect you to read this right away. In fact, I would suggest that you wait and allow this letter to sit idle for few days until you are ready to hear what I have to say, perhaps on Sunday after church.

I should clarify; I truly and sincerely dislike you for the brutal murder of my brother Emmanuel N. Berry and his three sons, but I don’t harbor ill intent toward you, nor do I desire vengeance or retaliation. My intention in writing this letter is healing — plain and simple.

Mr. Johnson, I’m not sure if you’re even capable of finding yourself emotionally compromised. Nevertheless, I anticipate that this letter will undoubtedly elicit feelings of deep guilt and immobilizing shame, especially as a “pastor”.

Dedication Ceremony; Newly Renovated Restrooms; Wm. V.S. Tubman Bldg. Ricks Institute


In a ceremony held on Monday, August 24, 2020 at Ricks Institute, the Ricks Institute Alumni Association-USA, Inc. (RIAA-USA, Inc.), in collaboration with Ricks Institute Alumni Association-Liberia (RIAAL), turned over the keys of six newly renovated restrooms to the Administration of Ricks Institute. Housed in the William V. S. Tubman Building, the main complex for all classes, these restrooms will service more than 500 students and staff members at the school.

The need for the renovation of the restrooms was observed when RIAA-USA National Chairman, Mr. John E. Scott, II, visited Ricks in 2019. Returning to the United States, he brought this need to the attention of the RIAA-USA Board, and in the spirit of the Ricks mantra “Not for Self but for Others”, this Twenty Thousand US Dollars (US$20,000) Restroom Renovation Project was approved and subsequently launched in March 2020.
