Boakai made the call over the weekend in Tubmanburg, Bomi County during a program organized by partisans of the former ruling Unity Party.
He made reference especially to the Secretariat of the party that is charged with the responsibility of formulating programs and running the day-to-day activities of the party.
The former Liberian Vice President believes partisans of the most recent past former ruling party must begin to engage in the development of programs that will keep the touch of the party burning.
Boakai served Liberia and Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as Vice President of the country and lost to former football legend, George M. Weah, in the 2017 presidential and representative elections in Liberia.
He has however accepted to live a private and peaceful life in his home county of Lofa in North-western Liberia where he is said to be engaged in agricultural activities.
It is also widely reported that the Liberian diplomat is paused to shortly launch a foundation aimed at helping the development of the country even in his private life.
When launched, the foundation according to sources closed to the former Vice President, is expected to empower current and future generations and help reduce unemployment rate in Liberia.
The 2008 National Housing and Population Census report from the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS) captured high unemployment as one of the challenges facing the country.
In 2017, the former Liberian Vice President launched a book titled “From Foya to Capitol Building” in which he detailed his humble up bringing from that remote part of the country.
