Pres. Sirleaf Off To Nigeria, Chad

MONROVIA, Feb 26 (LINA) -President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf left the country Wednesday for official visits to Nigeria and Chad.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader’s visit to Abuja is in response to an invitation from Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to attend that country’s Centenary on its amalgamation, scheduled to take place in Abuja on February 27.

Following his visit to Nigeria, President Sirleaf will proceed to N’Djamena, Chad, to chair the Heads of State Committee of the African Union Authority on the African Common Position of the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

It may be recalled that last year the Liberian leader was selected by the United Nations Secretary-General to co-chair a development agenda that would succeed the Millennium Development Goals.

Upon the completion of that task, in May 2013, at the Assembly of Heads of State of the African Union, she was again selected to the chair a Committee that would draw up a Common African Position to be adopted into the final Post-2015 Development Agenda.

While President Sirleaf is away from the country, the Minister of Internal Affairs Morris Dukuly, will serve as Chairman of the Cabinet in consultation with the Vice President Dr. Joseph N. Boakai, Sr.

She is expected back at the weekend.
