OLM Delegation Lauds Pres. Sirleaf For Leadership

MONROVIA, August 24 (LINA) - A delegation from the Organization of Liberians in Minnesota (OLM) has commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for her leadership which has kept the country safe for over 13 years now.

The delegation headed by M. Momolu Kemokai also commended the Liberian leader for the efforts made thus far in tackling the country’s development challenges.

According to an Executive Mansion press statement, the 11-member delegation made the commendation on Tuesday, August 23, during a courtesy call they paid on President Sirleaf at her office in Monrovia.

They also thanked the Liberian leader for steps taken to establish a Consulate in Minnesota, and encouraged the government to take further actions aimed at operationalizing the Minnesota Consulate, noting that it will serve as a relief for the over 35,000 Liberians residing in that part of the United States of America.

The OLM delegation also called for the establishment of a special office on Diaspora matters to handle issues concerning Liberians abroad who are interested in remaining engaged with their country and to provide them the much needed services and assistance.

The OLM delegation also called for measures to be taken for the promotion and advancement of small businesses.

“Actions must be taken to eliminate or minimize huddles that prevent small businesses from progressing. Foreigners are completely in charge of the real estate
business and something should be done to change the trend,” the delegation stressed.
