The Executive Mansion

This is the Executive Mansion aka the official residence, workplace of the president, and the People’s House. The Country built it in 1964 during the administration of William VS Tubman, the 19th President. Fire destroyed the People’s House in 2006 during the administration of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the 23rd President of Liberia. The Executive Mansion is under renovation.

 

The Presidency of Liberia: Past & Present

Joseph Jenkins Roberts (1809-1876)

1st President.
Dates in Office: 1848-1856.
Party: Independent.
Age in Office: 39
Birth-Death: 1809-1876
Location Born: Norfolk, Virginia
Office: Governor and Governor.
Religion:
Major Public Policy: To define the country’s territorial boundary, form a united population, establish a stable, sovereign government, asking mostly European countries to recognize Liberia as a sovereign nation capable of interacting with other countries as co-equals. The president was also engrossed in making the case, against the prevailing view at the time, that black people were capable of self-government, seeking peace with the indigenous tribes, and signing treaties with them. The president also focused on resolving inter-tribal and intragroup conflicts.

Positive Impact: Great Britain, Spain, and others recognized Liberia’s sovereignty and independence. He acquired additional territory and integrated some indigenous tribes. He was able to bring peace between little and Grand Bassa headed by Kings Dour-wee and Zio, respectively.

Negative Impact: The First Constitution didn’t extend citizenship to the indigenous people of Liberia. American immigrants received better treatment over the indigenous tribes. The relationship between the settlers and the indigenous was not peaceful. The right to vote and participate in elections were extended to Liberia’s indigenous peoples in 1946. Attempt to resolve conflicts between chiefs of the Vai and Gola tribes didn’t work.

Steven Allen Benson (1816-1865)

2nd President.
Dates in Office: 1856-1864
Party : Independent.
Age in Office: 40
Birth-Death: 1816-1865
Location Born:

Major Public Policy: Like Joseph Jenkins Roberts, Allen Benson continued to define the country’s territorial boundary, form a united population, establish a stable, sovereign government capable of interacting with other countries as co-equals. He purchased additional land via treaties with the natives expanding Liberian territory about 600-mile (1000 km) coastline. In 1864, President Benson imposed the Ports of Entry Law restriction, outlawing illegal foreign trade on Liberia borders.

Positive Impact: Additional countries including the United States recognized Liberia’s sovereignty and independence. President Benson was able to make some progress in uniting the natives and the settlers and restricting illegal trade. The Republic of Maryland colonists joined Liberia.

Negative Impact: The relationship between the settlers and the indigenous remained low. The trade restriction widely affected indigenous trade relations with business partners outside the territory that the Liberia Government controlled, decreased Liberia revenue, and increased tribal revolts. Financial problems caused by increasing warfare and economic decline, wane the administration efforts to do more to bring the country together.

Daniel B. Warner (1815-1880)

3rd President.
Dates in Office: 1864-1868
Party: Republican Party
Age in Office: 49
Birth-Death: 1815-1880

Religion:
Major Public Policy: To integrate the indigenous population and the settlers and restrict foreign vessels from doing business across Liberian territory outside Robertsport, Monrovia, Marshall, Grand Bassa, Greenville, Sinoe, and Cape Palmas ports.  Finding an additional source of revenue to support new immigrants from the West Indies temporarily was also a major concern to the Warner Administration.

Positive Impact:  He traveled to the hinterland and signed treaties with local tribes to end the bellicose stalemate between them.

Negative Impact: The central government had limited control over the interior population. The Ports of Entry Law enacted in 1865 reduced revenue and increased tribal or indigenous conflicts.

Positive Impact: He ended the slave trade, stopped the Cape Palmas war including the Gallinas disturbances, sought to expand trade, and encouraged Denmark to recognize Liberia sovereignty and independence.

Negative Impact:  Prices of Liberia exports-coffee, rice, palm oil, sugarcane, and timber sagged. ACS curtailed its financial supports to the settlers thus worsening the country precarious financial situation.

Positive Impact: He renegotiated the Blyden-Havelock Treaty that finally ended the vague and puny borderline dispute between the British Colony in Sierra Leone and the Liberian Government. The Gallinas’ territory located between the Sewa River and the Mano River became part of Sierra Leone and the Mono River legally became the boundary between Liberia and Sierra Leone. The treaty also ordered the English to reimburse Liberia for the 4,750 pounds that the country paid to purchase the territory earlier from local chiefs. The French seizure of the land west of the Cavalla River, was also resolved. Trade and revenue increased.
Negative Impact:  Liberia succumbed to the British encroachment and annexed Gallinas’ territory for a sum. The price and volume of export crops such as coffee, rice, palm oil, sugarcane, and timber felt. The administration did little to integrate rural and Monrovia.

Positive Impact: The United States granted Liberia a 40-year loan of $1.7 million.
Negative Impact:  The terms of the $500,000 English loan provided that British agents takeover the collection from head or hut taxes imposed on the indigenous people.  The USA loan also required Liberia to allow American, British, French and German to take over the receivership of the Government revenue until 1926.

Daniel Howard (1861-1935)

Charles DB King (1875-1961)

17th President.
Party : True Whig Party.
Dates in Office: 1920-1930

Location Born: Monrovia, Liberia
Religion:
Office: Foreign Minister.
Major Public Policy: To negotiate and sign the Firestone Rubber Company, negotiate loan agreement with the United States.
Positive Impact: The $5 million loan from Firestone Corporation of America improved the economy. Firestone employed most Liberians. The loans consolidated some of the bond debts the government-owned. The loan also funded public load improvements.
Negative Impact: The government forcibly recruited the natives to work on the rubber plantation. It also was accused of rigging the 1977 presidential elections between King and Thomas J. R. Faulkner.

Edwin Barclay (1882-1955)

18th President.
Party: True Whig Party.
Dates in Office: 1930-1944
Age in Office: 48
Birth-Death: 1882-1955
Location Born: Liberia
Religion:
Office: Secretary of state of Liberia
Major Public Policy: To repeal the Port of Entry Law of 1864 that restricted the economic activities of foreigners in Liberia.

Positive Impact: The removal of trade restrictions increased concession agreements between Liberia and the Dutch, Danish, German, and Polish investors. Liberia adopted the United States Dollars as a sole legal tender in Liberia. Liberia’s strategic location and its natural rubber products encouraged the US to sign a Defense Pact with Liberia to build Robertsfield Airport capable of receiving and refueling warheads and of using bases in Liberia to store military supplies.
Negative Impact: The Forced Labor Scandal of the previous president continued to cast dark clouds on Liberia as a sovereign nation capable of self-government. Tribal insurrections also continued to threaten the country’s survival.

William VS Tubman (1895-1971)

19th President.
Party: True Whig Party.
Dates in Office: 1944-1971
Age in Office: 49

Location Born: Harper, Liberia
Religion: Methodist
Office: Supreme Court Justice.
Major Public Policy: National Unification and Economic Open Door.
Positive Impact: Liberia became a prosperous nation and envy to the world including African countries especially between 1960 and 1950.  Tubman encouraged and signed concession contracts with investors from a wide range of countries, including Sweden, the United States and Germany. The government-built roads and railroads were connecting cities and towns and improving relationships between the hinterland and the coaster dwellers.  The foreign companies created numerous employment opportunities for Liberians.
Negative Impact: The astronomical increase in Liberian economic outputs was, however, unevenly distributed. It had little effects on human capital, level of education, social inclusion, healthcare, and equality under the law. The settlers-the Congo families- benefited the most, at the disadvantage of the indigenous people. Moreover, under the True Whig Party, the only party that could function in the country, government officials frequently abused powers and unfairly or brutally crushed any opposition perceived to pose any political threat to the president or officials of the government. Besides, without the right to form a union, common Liberians could not bargain for fair wages; their right to do so was trampled upon and denied them by their government. In order words, although direct foreign investment tremendously improved the country vertically. Liberia, was however, without good governance; social development, including investing in people and removing barriers so that all citizens, without discrimination, can reach their full potential, was not distributed horizontally.

William R. Tolbert Jr. (1913-1980)

20th President.
Party : True Whig Party.

Age in Office: 58

Positive Impact:  For the first time in 125 years, the government reformed the single-party rule and allowed multiple party systems including the registration of the Progressive Alliance of Liberia, stopped the one month annual salary payment that each working citizen and resident used to pay to the True Whig Party. He also increased the appointed to positions of responsibility ingenious educated Liberians, promoted youth causes and improved the educational systems. He initiated and improved relations with countries of Africa, the Middle East, North America, South America, Asia, East and Western Europe. Moreover, Liberia hosted the Organization of African Unity summit, and resolved numerous fratricidal African conflicts. President Tolbert was also the bellwether of the formation of the Mano River Union and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). 
Negative Impact: His opponents and foes criticized the Tolbert government for not doing enough to reduce the inequality between the Congo people and the indigenous people.

Age in Office: 49
Birth-Death: 1948-present
Location Born: Arthington, Liberia
Religion:
Office: Warlord. He also served as Minister of General Services Agency
Major Public Policy: Tylor ascension to the presidency was the beginning of dissident or insurgent activities that he created. The fear from opposition set the agenda for his administration until the Civil War consumed the country. He exploited diamond mining operations in Sierra Leone to defense, arm, and strengthen his Administration against his enemies.
Positive Impact: His bellicose disposition and venue acquired from the diamond in Sierra Leone and timbers in Liberia supported his bloody insurrection and Civil conflict. A conservative estimate of those who died in the Civil War was 200,000 excluding the million Liberians and residents that got internally displaced or escaped to other countries as refugees.
Negative Impact: The United Nations accused him of committing atrocities everywhere including Sierra Leone. He was forced to resign. He exiled to Nigeria.

Positive Impact: The Government secured millions of dollars of foreign investment and pledged to eradicate corruption. She fought to reduce ethnic tensions.
Negative Impact:  The critics accused her government of nepotism and corruption. She appointed most of her family members to positions of trust. Moreover, the Ebola virus outbreak in 2014 killed about 4,800 persons. It set her administration progress backward; it crippled most of the economic developments including training, education and employment.

George Weah (1966-)

25th president
Party: Congress for Democratic Change.
