In the post war Liberia, corruption has been seen as a MAJOR PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER (16 January, 2006). Also, It has been described as a VAMPIRE to the development (January 26, 2015). These two descriptions were given by Her Excellency Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf the President of Liberia and Nobel Prize Laureate. The former one was when she was swearing into office in 2006, while the recent one was when she was delivering her annual message to the Joint Session of the Legislature, 2015. Besides, these two negative metaphors clearly indicate dangerousness and harmfulness of the corruption to the national development especially within Liberia’s context. Moreover, this article goes further to define corruption as a cancer that eats up sound policies, agenda and transformative proposals for any given nation as Liberia has been experiencing it since 1847. The rate of our development (tangible and intangible) and living standard of our people are undisputable evidences of this theory. Also, There are lots of academic literatures supporting the corruption being one of the major obstacles to the Liberia’s development drives to be fully achieved; Hope (2010 ) ascertained that the culture of corruption in connection to the government of Liberia had/has an adverse impact on citizens, living standards, reduction of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), increasing mismanagement of public resources and undermining rule of law. Besides, if one critically peruses the standards of development in this nation since independence in 1847, he/she would certainly conclude that something is wrong with the whole system, especially the country is blessed with all sorts of natural resources which some have been extricated over the years. Of course, if proper financial mechanisms were in place with an effective implementation, Liberia would have been counted among the richest nations on earth, with high living standard. But the cancer is working.
