(, 2015)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has congratulated the Government and people of Namibia in commemoration of the 25th Independence Anniversary of that country.

She promised her government’s commitment to strengthening Liberia-Namibia relations.

President Sirleaf said the bond of friendship subsisting between Liberia and Namibia will continue to grow stronger for the mutual benefits of their respective governments.

She said:  Liberia will work closely with Namibia for the realization of the ideas and aspirations of their respective peoples.

President Sirleaf assured Government’s commitment to strengthening Liberia-Namibia relations in the years ahead.

The Liberian Leader’s assurance was contained in her congratulatory message to Namibian President, Hifikepubye Pohamba in commemoration of that country’s 25th Independence Anniversary.

In the message to her President Pohamba, President Sirleaf extended warmest congratulations to the Government and people of Namibia as they observe their National Day.

A Foreign Ministry statement quotes the Liberian Leader as saying: “The occasion coincides with the recognition of President Pohamba’s extraordinary leadership.”

“It is also in recognition of his achievement in winning the World’s most valuable Individual Award, the MO Ibrahim Prize for Africa,” she said.

The statement says official celebration of Namibia’s 25th Independence takes place this Saturday.
Namibia was one of the countries in Sub-Saharan Africa that suffered suppression under the Apartheid Regime of South Africa.

Following intense political struggle, and consistent with the Charter of the then Organization of African Unity (O. A.U.) now the African Union (AU), Namibia got her independence in 1993 from South Africa.
