US-based Liberian Muslims Hail Pres. Weah
By Hawa Dorley
The Liberian Islamic community based in the United States is commending President George Manneh Weah for the able manner in which he is steering the affairs of the country since he took over the mantle of authority in January, this year.
Speaking during the commemoration of the End-of-Ramadan outdoor program in Philadelphia, the head of the community, Mr. Soko Sackor, expressed the community’s unwavering support to the Government of President Weah.This year’s Ramadan celebration brought together over 20,000 US-based Liberian Muslims from across the United States and several officials of the Liberian government.
The Muslim community also expressed gratitude to the George Weah-led government for soliciting funds intended to address Liberia’s age-old infrastructural deficit, noting that it is confident that President Weah’s leadership will seek the interest of the state and its people.
According to the community, since Liberia’s independence, no President has ever shown political will and readiness to promote religious tolerance and/or equality like President Weah.
The group is therefore calling on Liberian Muslims at home and abroad to stand with the current government in every necessary way to assist the actualization of the Pro-poor Agenda.
Meanwhile, Liberia’s Assistant Minister for Information Services used the occasion to convey greetings, on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia.
Minister Samuel Worzie said Liberia under the leadership of President Weah will remain a country of peace, development, religious tolerance and social justice.
He cautioned members of the Liberian community in the Diaspora to always think of innovative programs that would enable them to make positive contributions to Liberia’s holistic development.
