Researcher Julius Kullie Kanubah says, he foresees a ‘land ownership fight’ in Liberia, if proper measures are not taken by state actors.
Kanubah emphasized that land is one of the key factors of citizenship, as such government must exercise serious regulations over land ownership.
The Worlds of Journalism Study Researcher sounded the caution Wednesday, 28 April when he guest lectured the ‘Political Journalism Class’ of the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism-PQSJ in Congo Town, Monrovia.
According to a release, Mr. Kanubah believes land acquisition is becoming a contentious issue in Liberia, so proper governance of the sector is needed.
At the same time, the Worlds of Journalism Study Researcher has cautioned against ‘imperial presidency’, which he thinks has taken over the country’s governance.
He said dictatorial tendencies put aside basic human rights and civil liberties of a country.
On the issue of the proposed dual citizenship and globalization, Kanubah named power, resources and land as major issues that are tied to citizenship.
According to him, the time is not feasible for Liberia to endorse ‘dual citizenship’.
Meanwhile, Kanubah is challenging Liberian Journalists to be critical and analytical of the governance process.
He warned that Journalists are not praise singers or public relations officers of the status quo.
