Blend Unity, Vigor As Strategy To Contain Violence - Landgren

By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, May 31 (LINA) -The United Nations Secretary General Special Representative to Liberia, Karin Landgren, has urged Liberians to blend unity with the vigor of the fight against Ebola as a strategy to curb violence as UNMIL departs.

She said such national solidarity was an amicable solution to sustain an unbroken peace in the absence of UNMIL, noting that “as we approach transition of security, Liberians must take the peacekeeping operations of the country into their own hands”.

In a farewell message during a tour of the county recently, she called on the local authorities to support decentralization, the deconcentration strategy of UNMIL, the security reform policy of the Liberian Government and increase plan toward reconciliation.

Nimba is among few counties heavily affected by the 14-year civil crisis, so Landgren said that it would be good to erase the mark of such violence and dissatisfaction being carried by citizens.

By supporting reconciliation among citizens, the county could succeed in sustaining peace in the province, Landgren admonished officials.

She also extended appreciation to Nimbians for the victory over Ebola, but warned the county against complacency, reminding them that neighboring Guinea is still reporting cases of the virus.

The ceremony which was held at the Conference Hall of the Tubman Administration Building  in Sanniquellie, brought together county officials, sub-offices of ministries and agencies as well as the security, judiciary system and media.
