Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has praised the citizens of Nimba County for their contribution to the development of their county and the country at large.
Speaking at the thanksgiving service held at the United Liberia Inland Church upon his arrival on a four-day visit to Nimba County yesterday, Boakai said “Nimba has demonstrated so much when it comes to development in the last few years.”
He said the county ranks first in every aspect of development, including education, agriculture, and infrastructure.
VP Boakai and his entourage were warmly received by the citizens of Nimba County, where he is spending several days during which he will dedicate projects and hold consultative discussions with citizens.
The partisans of the ruling Unity Party and its auxiliaries, as well as ordinary citizens, turned out in huge numbers under the rain to welcome the Vice President and his entourage.
Upon his arrival, he was led to the United Liberia Inland Church for a brief thanksgiving service organized in his honor by the Christian community.
Dr. N. James Kiamu praised VP Boakai for putting God first and added: “when you praise God, it opens the way for our petitions to God.
VP Boakai later extended his trip to Yekepa and other northern towns of Nimba County. Tomorrow, he is expected to dedicate a bridge in Yarpea Administrative District, from where he will continue to Karnplay, Bahn, and Saclepea, before heading back to Ganta, where an endorsement ceremony is expected to take place by the weekend.
