The Liberian President, Her Excellency Madame Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, has appointed Ezekiel Pajibo, TrustAfrica’s Project Director for the Liberia Civil Society Initiative, as a member of the Steering Committee of the National Vision Exercise. Mr. Pajibo, along with 18 other Liberians, are expected to guide the National Vision Exercise which seeks to solicit the views of all Liberian citizens in forming an inclusive vision for Liberia. Consultations will take place nationwide in five different regions of Liberia with President Johnson-Sirleaf gathering input on such issues as marginalization, governance, national identity, development, the land crisis, wealth creation and economy issues. The hope is to encourage all citizens to take ownership in the development and governance of their country over the next 18 years. The plan is to have the exercise completed by June 2012 and launched by July. For more information on the Liberia Civil Society Initiative, click here.
