Pres. Sirleaf Reaffirms Support For Dual Citizenship

MONROVIA, August 24 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has reaffirmed her support for dual citizenship in Libera.

In remarks when an 11-member delegation from the Organization of Liberians in Minnesota (OLM) paid a courtesy call on her on Tuesday, August 23, the Liberian leader informed the delegation that the issue is currently before the National Legislature as part of the constitutional reform process initiated by the government.

President Sirleaf thanked the delegation for the visit and urged Liberians living abroad to be patriotic and nationalistic about issues that concern Liberia as well as commit themselves to serving the nation.

She thanked them for their contributions to the Liberian economy, particularly through remittances and other forms of assistance to families, friends and others at home.

On the issue of real estate development, President Sirleaf informed the delegation that several reform measures, including the establishment of the Land Authority and other related policies will address the disadvantages that prevent Liberians from having access to land and other incentives necessary for progress by Liberians in the sector.

She challenged Diaspora business people to get involved with the umbrella organization for Liberian businesses and be more concerned with doing business than politicking.

Earlier, the OLM delegation headed by Mr. M. Momolu Kemokai re-echoed
calls made by many Diaspora groupings for Liberia to accept dual citizenship, noting that it will help develop the country.

Other members of the delegation were Sizi Goyah, Vice Chairman of the
Board of Directors; Henry Kesselly, Stanton Peabody, Alonso Ngumbu, Alfred K. Dele, Jallah Kesselly, Zeor Yaskey, Charles Quitee and Teresa Goyah.
