Mansion’s Renovation Not Priority

Liberia’s Finance Minister Augustine Ngafuan says that the renovation of the Executive Mansion is not a priority now.

Talking to journalists over the week-end, the head of Liberia’s finance house said, “there are more priority issues then spending gigantic money on the just a building renovation.”

According to Min. Nagfuan, US$40M is needed to renovate Israeli constructed Executive Mansion. For him, the amount is so huge that government cannot generate it.

“There are more strategic sectors that need special attention then renovating the Executive Mansion.” He added.

He named education, health, infrastructure and securities amongst others as having priority over the Executive Mansion. Fire gutted the Executive Mansion gutted during the 2007 Independence Day Celebration and has since then be laying in ruin. 

The Liberian young finance minister advanced that it will be better to renovate the home of the President and that government is working on modalities to generate funds to do just that.
