Liberia Peaceful Compared To Other Post-Conflict Countries - VP Boakai
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, October 25 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has described Liberia as a peaceful country compared to other post-conflict countries.

He observed that countries emerging from war usually experience crimes such as ambush of vehicles on major highways, increase in armed robbery and bank heist, noting that Liberia is yet to experience such perverse acts since the end of the civil conflict.

The Liberian Vice President made the observation Monday at a peace festival held under the theme ‘Kukatonnon,’ which means in a local dialect, “We are One,” held at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia.

The program held to mark UN Day was attended by politicians, traditional leaders, cultural artists and representatives from the 15 counties of Liberia, among others.

VP Boakai noted that Liberia will only remain peaceful during and after the general and presidential elections if politicians who are seeking political offices comport themselves in a peaceful manner.

He pointed out that there is no need for the blood of any Liberian to be spilled for one to obtain state power, and urged all politicians to do all they can to sustain the peace the country currently enjoys.

Vice President Boakai emphasized that it is only Liberians who can determine whether peace should be sustained or for the country to slip back into instability, adding “Let us not misuse the opportunity to move Liberia forward.”
