MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), George Manneh Weah, is assuring the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) of his administration’s commitment to building a modern military hospital.

He said the hospital will cater for soldiers, their families, other security personnel and the immediate communities, and will be manned by highly professional medical staff to provide quality medical services.

Commander-in-Chief Weah is also assuring the AFL that his administration will build additional housing and other facilities for the army.

President Weah gave the assurance Monday, February 12, 2018, during programs marking the 61st Anniversary of the Armed Forces of Liberia held at the Barclay Training Center (BTC) in Monrovia.

The Liberian Leader regretted the prolonged lack of health facilities at military barracks to handle three servicemen, thereby leaving them to attend private clinics and other medical facilities where they are not well catered for.

The AFL Commander-in-Chief then stressed the need for army personnel to be duly accommodated, and instructed the Minister of National Defense, Daniel Ziankhan, to do an assessment of housing facilities at all military installations in the country and report to him.

The President further said he will seek funding to improve the welfare of the army.

CIC Weah promised to provide adequate modernized logistics and other facilities for the AFL and assured of highly trained, educated and cared-for military organizations under his regime.

The Liberian Leader also spoke of the need to intensify the Reserved Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) courses in Liberian schools and vowed that the Liberian army will embrace all careers.

He said:” The AFL must stand ready to defend the democratic gains the country has made over the years, and I pledged my fullest support to the army in such endeavor as the country grows in its governance process.”

The AFL Commander-in-Chief thanked bilateral partners in helping to build the post-war Liberian army and pledged to work with them continually to further strengthen and build the capacity of the national army.
