Monrovia, Liberia – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has expressed serious displeasure at the news of the vandalism and looting of properties at Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL) in Butaw, Sinoe County on Tuesday, May 26, 2015. “As a government, we cannot allow a few people to undermine the interest of this country; to run investors away and to make sure that we do not attract what we need to achieve our development goals,” the Liberian leader pointed out. According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader said government will respond to this in a very effective way. President Sirleaf was addressing journalists at the Roberts International Airport upon arrival from Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire where she participated in the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the African Development Bank. She indicated that her government cannot continue to go out and attract investment to create jobs, and others engage in violence that scare away investors.
