( 11, 2015)-Togo’s President, Faure Gnassingbe,  and Ghana's Foreign Minister, H.E. Hannah S. Tetteh have arrived in Liberia as guests of the Liberian Government and people to mark the Ebola free Celebration being heard.

President Gnassingbe  and his  Ghanaian counterpart arrived in the Liberian Capital, Monrovia, Monday morning, May 11, 2015 to grace the National Thanksgiving Service, commemorating Liberia’s milestone victory over the Ebola virus.

Other foreign dignitaries already in the country for the occasion  includes the President of the ECOWAS Commission, Kadre Ouedraogo, and Nigeria’s Health Minister, Khaliru Alhassan, among several other high profile dignitaries from Africa and other parts of the world, are also expected to attend the historic gathering.

The thanksgiving service follows the World Health Organization’s declaration that Liberia is now Ebola free.

The service, to begin at 10’Oclock AM, will be held at the Centennial Memorial Pavilion in Monrovia, where the Liberian Leader will formerly receive the Ebola free declaration from the WHO.

It comes in the wake of Liberia’s successful meeting of the 42-consecutive- day no new case benchmark required for a country to be declared Ebola free.

The release said: “The ceremony will provide citizens the opportunity to take deep reflections on the just past difficult chapter in the nation’s existence and to thank God for ensuring the country’s victory over Ebola.
