President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulations to the Government and People of the Republic of Guinea on the observance of the 57th Independence Anniversary of that country.
In her message to her Guinean counterpart, H. E. Mr. Alpha Condé, President Sirleaf stated, “It is my distinguished pleasure to extend warmest felicitation and best wishes to you on behalf of the Government and People of the Republic of Liberia, and through your Excellency, to the Government and the resilience People of the Republic of Guinea.”
According to a Foreign Ministry release, President Johnson Sirleaf added that this milestone coincides with the historic groundbreaking of the Hydroelectric Dam, which 240 megawatt electricity will further stimulate the growth and development of the Republic of Guinea.
The Liberian Leader also prayed that as the Liberian People join their Guinean counterparts in commemorating the West African nation’s 57th historic independence occasion, the Almighty God will continue to endow President Condé with abundant wisdom to lead his people to nobler heights.
President Sirleaf also assured her Guinean counterpart of Liberia’s continued commitment to supporting the fight to eradicate the Ebola virus disease (EVD) from the Mano River Union Basin.
The President then expressed hope that the bonds of friendship so happily subsisting between Liberia and Guinea in the spirit of the principles of the Mano River Union (MRU), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN), in furtherance of international peace and economic development will continue to be further strengthened for the mutual benefits of their respective peoples.
