Ambassador Conteh Pays Tribute To Nigerian Military

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) - Liberia’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Professor Al-Hassan Conteh, has paid tribute to the brave men and women of the Nigerian military who sacrifice their lives in the search for durable peace and security.

A dispatch from the Liberian Embassy in Abuja says the Liberian envoy made specific reference to and recognized the important role and sacrifices of the Nigerian military in maintaining national and global peace and security.

“We pay tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives in the search for durable peace and security. Closer to home, we must commemorate the important role and sacrifices of the Nigerian military in maintaining national and global peace and security,” Ambassador Conteh said.

“The Nigerian military has taken a vanguard role in restoring peace and stability in West Africa. My sister here [the Sierra Leonean High Commissioner] mentioned Sierra Leone and of course I can mention the same about Liberia. You know the history of the ECOMOG intervention,” the Ambassador pointed out.

Ambassador Conteh made the assertion in his goodwill message during the observance of the World Peace Day held at a local hotel recently in Abuja.

The program was hosted by the Coalition of Civil Societies in Nigeria with a focus on ‘All Civil Society Conference on Peace, Security and Military Relations in commemoration of the United Nations Word Peace Day’.

Speaking on how the civil society and the military can collaborate, Conteh said the civil-military collaboration must also address problems of abject poverty, extreme hunger, mass unemployment, and political marginalization.

He insisted that the civil society must continue its work with the military to confront insurgencies and armed conflicts because of wanton global fatalities, adding “The civil society and the military must complement each other to ensure a stable and violence-free world.”

Ambassador Conteh, who also delivered the goodwill message on behalf of
the Dean of the Diplomatic Community, stated that it remains unflinchingly committed to supporting and promoting peace and security:

“We will continue to work with every segment of the Nigerian society through joint actions and partnerships that are mutually reinforcing to institutionalize the culture of peace in Nigeria, Africa and the World,” Conteh said.

Citing the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Armed Conflict Survey, the Liberian Ambassador noted that there are currently 42 armed conflicts around the world, ranging from civil wars, insurgencies and other forms of violent unrests.
