STATEMENT BY FORMER PRESIDENT ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF

Date:

Fellow citizens, as we approach another historic event in our country – the exercise of the Constitutional right of choice, I consider it a duty to join others in adding my voice.

Our nation has been blessed by God with an endowment which provides the means for development. We have made progress in the achievement of development goals, but some have, from time-to-time, undermined progress in that achievement.

But Through It All, Peace Has Been the Enabler. As is said in Vai, “Komu-moi lor nei awa mu k nyain”.

I, therefore, thank all citizens, individuals and groups, for the contribution made to National peace that has made us proud of the 20 consecutive years of peace.

I also thank the large number of continental, international and local organizations that will serve as Elections Observer ensuring that our electoral processes meet international standards.

We now have the opportunity to ensure through vote that growth and inclusive development can be sustained.

May you be guided by God and conscience, as you examine the performance record and the potential of those who seek your vote. I pray that you choose those who can and will ensure a Better Liberia and the Africa That We Want.
