Monrovia, Liberia - The Minister of Finance and Development Planning Hon Samuel D. Tweah, Jr., has expressed government commitment to ensuring that land-owners and squatters have legal titles to their land.

He says that the land issue is a critical challenge in Liberia and remains a major concern for the government.

He made the disclosure at the official launch of the Digitization of Government processes systematic land Titling project on Friday, January 15, 2021, at the Clara Town Football field on the Bushrod Island. .

‘’ The government of Liberia is here to ensure you are protected legally to have your land. We are not here to take your land from you, nobody is taking your land’’ He added.

Government, he said, is bringing solutions to people who own land by recognizing and giving them legal titles to their properties.

However, he explained that the digitization of government processes and systematic land titling is a pilot project to digitize land registration for Liberians.

He challenged the Land Authority to use the project to begin the formal titling and deeding of properties owned by Liberians who are considered “squatters”. Government he indicated should give titles to squatters and the pilot project can be a way of achieving that.

Medici Land Governance was introduced to the Liberia Land Authority, following a successful engagement held in Washington DC, by Minister Tweah.
