As part of the Christmas activities, the local money changers at the Ganta Border on Monday, December 24, 2018 identified with the security apparatus assigned on the both sides of the Liberia-Guinea border at Ganta, with some assorted items for Christmas.
Making the presentation to the security forces, the head of the group Jerry Mulbah praised them for their services rendered in protecting the lives of the business people and ordinary citizens as they trade across the borderline daily.
“We are very grateful to you all for the protection you provided us in this borderline daily,” he said.
“With the numerous contributions to our security, as money exchangers along this border, we are pleased to extend a little token of appreciation and urge you all to remain loyal to your calling and duty as state security,” he added.
On the Liberian side, both Nathan Kpakar of ECOWAS Brown Cards and Col. Robert Gibson of the Liberia Immigration Service thanked the money exchangers for the token of appreciation extended to them as Christmas gifts.
They urged the money exchangers to always remain law abiding, as they carry on their business activities along the border, adding, “we will continue providing the needed security you need so you can move freely in doing business and supporting the government.”
On the Guinea side, the lead commander of the first gate, Capt. Keita, also extended his gratitude to the money exchangers for being the first group of young business people to give them presents for their services.
“We are very happy of your token and the concern in general. We will do all our best to ensure that you receive the needed security, but we want you do away with criminal activities and learn to respect one another, regardless of being a Guinean or Liberian,” he said.
The gifts, which are worth several thousand Liberian Dollars, includes assorted soap, both laundry and bath soaps. The parcels of gifts were presented to every department at the border, both Liberian and Guinean sides.
