Liberia’s Minister of Defense Resigns Amidst Civil Unrest

Rtd. Gen. Prince C. Johnson, Liberia’s newly confirmed Minister of National Defense, has unexpectedly tendered his resignation. His Excellency Joseph Nyuma Boakai Sr., the President of the Republic of Liberia and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia, has accepted the resignation.


Minister Johnson stated the current political unrest and civil unrest as the basis for his departure in his letter of resignation. These disturbances are the result of protests by women who purport to be military wives. Johnson has decided to step down to protect the state’s security and tranquility in light of recent occurrences.

Wives of army officers have been demonstrating for the last two days, obstructing important routes including the nation’s sole international airport. The blockades along the Robertsfield highway prompted motorists to use motorbikes to get to the nation’s lone international airport.


President Boakai called Minister Johnson a patriot and thanked him for his priceless services to the nation. The President has also directed the army to make sure that anyone obstructing the free flow of people and cars by blocking important roads throughout the nation removes themselves right away so that the administration may address their complaints.

This evening, President Boakai is scheduled to address the country. The country is excitedly awaiting his speech in the hopes that the recent civil upheaval will be resolved peacefully.
