… Kamara Says
Finance & Development Planning Minister, Boima Kamara, has assured ECOWAS States of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s full adherence to the protocols.
Minister Kamara said President Sirleaf who is the chairperson of the ECOWAS heads of states remained committed to the four major pillars she mentioned during her address to her regional West Africans counterparts and encouraged countries in the region to continue to observe these norms.
The Liberia’s Finance and Development Planning Minister made the statement in Bo Waterside, Grand Cape Mount County when he deputized for President Sirleaf at the ECOWAS Sensitization & Awareness conference which brought together over 800 participants from the ECOWAS states including students, members of the Liberian joint security, local chiefs and security apparatus from neighboring Sierra Leone.
Speakers at the occasion, called for a peaceful co-existence among the ECOWAS States and should continue to have dialogue among them in handling issues emanating among these West African countries.
The Speakers also stressed the need for the free movement of ECOWAS citizens, goods and services without molestation but cautioned against the illegal movement of fire arms under the name of free movement.
In remarks, Representative Edwin Snowe who is a member of the ECOWAS parliament, pledged his continuous support to the West African body and said, more of these programs need to be held to better educate the Liberian children on the good things the south-regional body is doing.
The program in Bo was the second in the series of the sensitization and awareness on the ECOWAS Protocols in Liberia, the first was held in Ganta City, Nimba County a month ago and second activities took place on March 10, 2017 and it commenced with a parade from Adolescents Girls Compound to the Alexander Ketter School Campus in Bo Waterside where an indoor program was held.
