The Liberian Vice President made the statement in Voinjama,

Lofa County over the week-end when he spoke with reporters at the end of his 10-day Post Ebola and home coming visit to the county.
VP Boakai had gone to Lofa County to thank the citizens for the unity exhibited during the Ebola crisis. He promised to visit other counties to thank the citizens in those areas for their contributions to Liberia’s victory over Ebola.

The Vice President emphasized the need to thank the citizens of the other counties, because the deadly virus equally affected them.

Following cautious analysis, he accepted the citizens’ petition.
