(mylbsonline/Liberia)-The African Union (AU), formerly known as the Organization of African Unity (OAU), begins the celebration of its Golden Jubilee, May 25, 2013.

Foreign Minister, Augustine Ngafuan, says activities marking the observance of the AU’s Golden Jubilee will be launched at the ministry.

Minister Ngafuan said: “The official date is May 25, 2013 and will be a full year of events, with lecture series, debates and sport events.”

“Liberia’s role as an astute member of the AU will be highlighted by the creation of Liberia Corner to contain the country’s historical role, speeches of former Presidents, and contributions over the years,” he also noted.

The Dean of the Cabinet, however, told Liberians: “The country has regained its place among the comity of nations and ensure effective representation at all times.”
