Liberia: VP Boakai Renews Call for Peaceful Co-Existence

Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has renewed call for Liberians to peacefully co-exist irrespective of their political, religious and ethnic diversities.

VP Boakai said, when Liberians remain together as one people, God will in turn bless the nation and its people.

The VP was speaking Sunday, April 17, 2016 at the climax of the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention (LBMEC).

The 102nd LBMEC was held at the Grace Baptist Church in Greenville, Sinoe County under the theme: "More than we can imagine."

"In as much we meet at these occasions and embrace each other, God will bless us. Liberia is bigger than all of us and this is why we should first seek the country's interest," he stated.

He lauded the leadership of LBMEC for decentralizing its activities.

"Liberia is greater than Monrovia and so we want to thank you for bringing your convention to this part of the country," VP Boakai noted.

The Liberian Vice President, who is also a Deacon in the Effort Baptist Church, then pledged 500 bags of cement, 600 cartoons of tuna fish, 25 cartons of soft drinks, amongst others towards the project of the church.

For his part, the re-elected President of LBMEC commended all Baptists, including VP Boakai for attending the convention.

He, however, disclosed that it was the first time since 1970 for the convention to be hosted in Sinoe County.
