"Liberians Hold You in High Esteem," VP Boakai Tells Peace Corps

MONROVIA, June 15 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has hailed the return of Peace Corps Volunteers to Liberia, reiterating the words of President Sirleaf that ‘the Work of Peace corps volunteers in Liberia is a potent reminder that the agency’s mission is still in high demand after 51 years.”

Vice President Boakai told the Peace Corps Volunteers that they could not have returned at a better time, noting that the Government and people of Liberia are “highly grateful” to them for their caring and bold decision to resume activities in the country's education sector.

A beneficiary of the Peace Corps program himself, Vice President Boakai said he still feels honored to have been a part of programs marking the Golden Jubilee of the Peace Corps held in Arlington, Virginia, the United States of America in September 2011.

Vice President Boakai made the commendation Friday in special remarks at the swearing-in ceremony of five Peace Corps Volunteers who have returned to Liberia after Liberia's declaration by the World Health Organization as Ebola-free.

During the program, the Vice President received a special honor and a certificate from the Peace Corps on behalf of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The words on the Certificate read: “Peace Corps Liberia expresses its sincere appreciation for your support, partnership and dedicated host Country contributions since 1962,”a release from the Office of the Vice President said.
