Stop Unnecessary In Fighting! -Liberian Diplomat Sees Liberia’s Int’l Image Good

The Permanent Representative of Liberia at International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London, the United Kingdom, Moses Owen Browne, Jr. calls on Liberians to stop the unnecessary infightings, saying that the image of the country on the international scene is good and many good things are being said about the little things we are doing in the Country.

Browne counseled that if many of those in positions can just listen to their leader and follow his leadings, “we will deliver effectively and efficiently. Let us work with passion and convictions.”

On his Facebook Page, the Permanent Representative of Liberia at the IMO said “Everyone will not like you. They will not like everything you proposed. They are not under any obligations to believe in all you say and do. Just do your work to the best of your ability and remain firm. We have a lot to do for our people and let’s remain focus in doing what we are called to do.”

According to him, the government does not need the opposition to validate their achievements, adding that the people have eyes to see and they will ultimately decide the future.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven,” he went biblical referencing Matthew 5:16.

He then commended the President, Dr. George Manneh Weah for his initiative at ensuring the completion of the 14 Military Hospital and other development programs being undertaken in the country.

“Your Excellency, thank you so much for the modern 14 Military Hospital – it’s a great boost for our health care sector. Thank you for developing our country through infrastructure developments such as road networks, farm to market road, modern market facilities, and low or middle income housing units across Liberia, educational opportunities for all Liberians and the list is endless,” he said.

The Liberian diplomat said there are people watching from outside and cheering for what they didn’t see happening in previous administrations with the millions of investments and foreign direct investments that were pulled into our country.

“They see how we have been able to massively generate domestic revenue to carry out some of the major projects we are doing today that require donors support in the past,” Mr. Brown outlined, saying “There are some countries who have focused all their resources on Coronavirus pandemic responses, here we are managing a global pandemic and still carrying out massive development works across the country. It’s leadership. It’s thinking about your people and caring about their well-being. This is unprecedented!!”

Stating that he can go on and on naming and listing some of the tangibles, he concluded “…but we have to focus on the work we are called to do and stop fighting amongst ourselves. Let us observe our leader and follow his leadings and we won’t have to worry about what the future holds.”

Brown’s post is in the wake of the dedication and official opening of the 14 Military Hospital in Margibi where the President said to he has a vision and mission to develop Liberia to the maximum extent possible during his Presidency, adding that his mission is to complete every project that he embarks upon in that process.”

Addressing a mammoth crowd at the occasion, President Weah said “Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough,” noting that the Military Hospital is one of signature projects which he said he is both proud and happy to see accomplished in record time. The President also name another signature projects of his administration which he pointed out is to develop the Bali Island.

“Many who listened to my pronouncement of building the hospital [on his the first Armed Forces he addressed as President of Liberia] thought that it was just a dream, or an illusion.  Just mere words being spoken which were not grounded in reality.  There were many skeptics, and many critics.  But those who thought that way did not know that I am not only a man of words, but a man of action,” he said.

President Weah noted how the critics and skeptics “completely under-estimated my determination, and the strength of my resolve, especially when I am faced with a challenge that seems to be against all odds.  I talk, and I do. Talk, and do.”

“There are many who doubt our ability to bring this project to fruition.  But these skeptics do not discourage nor distract me from my mission.   And so, Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the 14 Military Hospital, standing before you, fully constructed, equipped, staffed, and ready to serve Liberia,” the President exclaimed.

“Those who have eyes to see, let them see. There are those who see reality, but they act like they don’t see. But it has often been said, that none are as blind, as those who do not wish to see.

Well, let them speak today, or forever hold their peace,” President Weah threw a bemused at his critics, saying “What a blessing!!   Without God, nothing is possible; nothing is done.  To God be the Glory, for the things He has done.”
