Harper, Maryland: President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has been honored by the women of Maryland County drawn from Harper, Pleebo Sodoken and Barrobo-Karluway Districts for her outstanding leadership.

The women spokesperson, Ms. Annie Slewion, described President Sirleaf as: “Mother, Liberia’s first female President, and Africa’s Architect of Peace and Unity.”

According to an Executive Mansion release, the women made the statement at a dinner held in honor of the Liberian leader on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at the Harper City Hall in Maryland County.

Presenting a statement on behalf of the women, Ms. Annie Slewion said the women of Maryland solidly resolute to give President Sirleaf her flowers while she is alive.
She said under the leadership of President Sirleaf, Maryland County experienced transformation, including the enactment of the William V.S. Tubman College to a full-fledged University, the commencement of pavement of roads, the construction of a referral hospital, the restoration of electricity, construction of schools, among others.

She said that President Sirleaf will forever be remembered and thanked the President for steering the leadership of the Country alongside with Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.

Responding, President Sirleaf extolled the Women of Maryland for the honor bestowed on her saying: “Thank you for the honor this evening, I appreciate what you have done.”

She then appealed to all Marylanders to keep working harder. She said: “We can still do a lot in these last few months.”
She told the gathering that her government has designed a theme “Strong to The Last Mile” towards the completion of the administration, and cautioned the people to keep the peace and move forward in making Liberia a better place for all. 

Speaking at an interactive Town Hall Meeting in Barraken, Maryland County, President Sirleaf promised to uphold the constitution of Liberia and stressed that she is a strong believer in democracy. She said when the time comes to quit constitutionally, she will do so without any hesitation.
She however expressed regret over the absence of Maryland County Legislative Caucus saying: “They should have been here, except for one member of the Caucus who is bereaved.”

President Sirleaf then praised the citizens and residents of Maryland for their support and reminded Marylanders that there is still work to be done whether in the private or public sector, and that all must continue to work to lift Liberia.
