LLA Boss Calls for Conformity Efforts in Land Governance -To mitigate Land Conflicts

Liberia Land Authority (LLA) Chairperson Atty. J. Adams Manobah has called on government line Ministries and Agencies for conformity efforts in order to minimize the issue of land squabbling, and for good land governance in Liberia

Atty. Manobah said the issue of land conflict in Liberia is unbecoming on a daily basis, adding that the Ministry of Lane and Mines, Environmental Protection Agency, Liberia Revenue Authority, Forestry Development Authority, and LLA should unite and act in concert to have a good land governance system.

 “The work is too much that one entity cannot do it, everyday there are different cases of land conflicts and to regulate these problems we all need to come together with one understanding and set up a good system in Liberia,” Atty. Manobah noted.

The LLA Boss made the disclosure on Monday April 18, 2022, at the launching ceremony of LLA Radio program on Land Matters, under the theme “Ensuring Land Rights for All Liberians” at the LLA Headquarters in Monrovia.

Manobah said he is of the conviction that the radio program will help to educate Liberians on land matters, noting that Liberia Land Authority will take the program to the people in the communities through outside broadcast starting with Montserrado County.

“This is in continuation of what the law requires of us. It is embedded in the law that LLA carries out sufficient awareness on land matters that every community, every Liberian should hear the good news, but besides the good news, you have a responsibility attached, that is the area of sensitization.”

“Because to exercise your rights you also need procedures in place and you need to be informed about your rights, that is the area of awareness and for us that is the best we can do,” Manobah asserted.

Meanwhile the project Manager for Lantmateriet-inclusive Land Administration and Management Project (ILAMP) Christopher Byren through a zoom conversation has assured the government of Liberia through the LLA the support of the Swedish government to help ratify land issue in Liberia.

He noted that it is significant that the citizens of Liberia have information on land rights, adding that the ILAMP will work with the government of Liberia both financially and technically for good land governance.

The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) was established by an Act of the National Legislature on October 6, 2016 as an autonomous agency of government with operational Independence subsumes land function in Liberia.
