by Varflay Kamara

MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President George Weah has expressed profound appreciation to all those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes, to ensure the success of his County Tour.

President Weah reference First Lady Clar Weah, Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor, the National Legislature, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the entire National Security Apparatus, for ensuring the tour of the County ended successfully.

The Liberian Leader was speaking on Sunday, August 21, 2022, at the Monrovia Open Bible Standard Church, during Thanksgiving Service that climaxed the nationwide tour.

He said:” The tour was a memorable opportunity to engage citizens on issues that confront them on a daily basis.”

He then reiterated his call for citizens to continue living in peace and show love for one another, despite the increasing political tension.

According to him, it is only through peace development can be achieved.

The Liberian Leader declared that never again will the Country return to its ‘dark days’, saying that Government will do all it can to preserve the peace.

President George Weah particularly urged young people to take education seriously, as it is the preparatory stage to become better citizens.

Delivering his Thanksgiving Sermon, the Senior Pastor of the church, Rev. Philip Chea, said:” The sustenance of peace and victory over diseases are enough reasons for Liberians to remain grateful to God.”

Rev. Chea said many Liberians were gripped with fear when the UN Peacekeepers were pulling out of Liberia, without realizing that God is the chief protector of peace.

He told the Liberian Leader that the success of the tour is based on God’s approval, for which the Government must remain grateful.

He urged President Weah to continue his developmental initiatives and focus on steering the affairs of the State in God’s love, and stressed the urgent need for Liberians to join in the rebuilding process of the Country, despite political and social differences.

The Liberian Chief Executive began his nationwide tour in February last year, holding eighty-eight town hall meetings in all fifteen counties, and climaxed the tour visiting all seventeen districts in Montserrado County.

During those meetings, President Weah received over eight-hundred development requests, including electricity, construction of town halls, administrative markets, recreational facilities, youth and women empowerment, which topped the agenda.

The Liberian Leader assured that concerns raised will be categorized and acted upon both in the medium and long terms.

President Weah said the tour has given him a clearer understanding of citizens’ plight and level of impact his Government has made over the last four and half years.
