President George Mannah Weah has reiterated called for Liberians to think and act positively in the development of the country.
President Weah said Liberians will move forward with peace and progress if the citizens embrace one another as people with a common destiny and sincerely work together in the best interest of the nation.
The Liberian leader made these remarks on Sunday, July 22, 2018, at a thanksgiving service held at the Dominion Christian Fellowship International Church in Congo Town, outside Monrovia.
The service, organized as part of the celebration of Liberia’s 171st Independence Anniversary was attended by hundreds of citizens and residents including local and foreign dignitaries.
Liberia became a Free and Independent State on July 26, 1847.
President Weah told the congregation that “Liberia will rise again if we all, as citizens, put hands around each other.”
“What you are doing today, you may overlook it, but at the end, you will get your reward,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, the Archbishop of the Dominion Christian Fellowship International Church, Isaac Winker, called on Liberians to be law-abiding and to invest more in educational and infrastructural development.
Archbishop Winker pointed out that the progress of the Liberian nation lies in the educational empowerment of its citizenry.
He encouraged President Weah and his government to focus on infrastructural development and educational empowerment of the citizenry, particularly the youth who constitute the vast majority of the country’s population.
