VP Boakai Urges African Solution To African Problem

MONROVIA, September 22 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has said the role of the African Union Support to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa (ASEOWA) is a clear demonstration that Africans must look within the continent for solution to the continent’s problems.

He said peace, stability and health can come to the continent when Africans look within the continent for the resolution of problems and called on African Leaders to hold together determined to find answers to issues of conflict on the continent.

Vice President Boakai was speaking Tuesday on Capitol Hill when a delegation of ASEOWA paid him a farewell courtesy visit, according to a release from the Office of the Vice President.

Vice President Boakai said Liberia was grateful to the African Union for the demonstration of leadership in the fight against the Ebola virus that hit the Mano River Union countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, claiming thousands of lives.

Earlier, the Special Representative of the chairperson of the AU Commission to Liberia, Ambassador H. Oluwatoyin Solaja, said they were grateful to the Liberian Government for the level of cooperation received while here, including the provision of an office space in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to carry out their functions.

He said ASEOWA operated a hundred-bed hospital and trained over seven thousand personnel for the treatment of Ebola and capacity-building, the release said.

The delegation included Dr. Benjamin Djoudalbaye, Head of Mission, ASEOWA; Dr. Joshua Obasanja, Deputy Head of Mission; Mr. Abiodun Adeyemo, Head of Finance, Peace and Security Department of ASEOWA based in Addis Ababa, Mr. David Sunday Oyekleke, Communications Officer and Madam Elizabeth, Deputy Head of Mission of ASEOWA in Sierra Leone.

The ASEOWA came into existence as a result of the decision of the Peace and Security Council of the AU to establish the body and send it to the three Ebola-hit West African countries.
