In a remarkable display of leadership and commitment to accountability, Liberian President Joseph Boakai has voluntarily reduced his salary by 40%.

This move is aimed at setting a precedent for responsible governance and nation-building, as well as demonstrating solidarity with the Liberian people amidst economic challenges.

The President’s decision comes on the heels of a creative protest by lawmakers, who arrived at parliament in tricycles (known locally as “Keke”) to express their frustration over the Finance Ministry’s refusal to disburse funds for vehicle acquisition. By taking a pay cut, President Boakai is not only showing empathy but also paving the way for a more financially responsible and accountable government.

Moreover, the President has pledged to strengthen the Civil Service Agency (CSA) to ensure that public servants’ salaries are fair and commensurate with the current economic conditions. This move is expected to foster a culture of fairness and accountability within the government, promoting a more efficient and effective public service.

By leading by example, President Boakai is sending a strong message that the government is committed to financial responsibility and accountability, and that collective efforts are necessary to overcome the economic challenges facing Liberia.
