“We Are Holding Ourselves Back”, President Sirleaf Tells Liberians

 By Prince S. Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, October 7 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has blamed the continuous challenges and backwardness being faced by the country on  negative and irresponsible criticisms by some Liberians.

“We are holding ourselves back because of the way we do things; the way we say bad things about our country; the way we castigate each other and try to hold each other back,” the Liberian leader asserted.

President Sirleaf made the comment at an Intercessory Service held at the All Saints Catholic Church in Smell-No-Taste Community, Margibi County on Tuesday upon her return to the country from the Federal Republic of Germany and the United States of America.

She traveled to Germany to attend the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Conference and to the U.S to address the 70th Session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.

The Liberian leader noted: “Liberia belongs to all Liberians and as such it is the duty of all of us to collectively hold it, preserve it and make it better;” adding “We have a lot of work to do and a long way to go in making Liberia better for all of us.”

She observed: “With all the difficulties and problems Liberia and Liberians face God keeps blessing us,” and urged Liberians to seek God’s face in all they do so that he can shower more blessings on Liberia.

Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has lauded that acting Chair of the Cabinet, Defense Minister Brownie Samukai and members of the cabinet for keeping the country safe while she was out of the country on official duty.
