Unity Party Standard Bearer Joseph Boakai has condemned the acts of extracting resources from Liberia with no regards to the development of communities from which these resources are taken.
He said even the roads leading to these mines are impassable while citizens of these areas continue to live in abject poverty.
The main opposition leader was speaking in Electoral District Two of Montserrado County during a campaign rally Saturday.
He spoke of government officials who have become millionaires overnight depriving the Nation and its people the needed resources to improve their livelihood.
He wondered how all of the resources including diamonds and gold are exploited to satisfy a few individuals while majority of the population continue to live in destitution.
He assured Liberians that the nation will be rescued and redeemed from the claws of corruption and kleptomania.
He pointed out to the young people of Liberia that their hope in this rescue mission is solid and that development cannot take place in the current environment of people who only care for themselves.
He noted that every major city in Liberia will be laid out with major public services including television stations built to ease the hardship confronting the rural and urban population in a country that is nearly two centuries old.
