Press Release



WASHINGTON, January 29, 2018 – The Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA or The Union) hails President George Manneh Weah for calling on the 54th National Legislature to end the struggles Liberians are going through. President Weah made the call today at the 54th National Legislature. ​

President Weah spoke of many things, including citizenship rights of Liberians living away from their country (Liberia) and those who acquired Dual Citizenship as a result of war or economic hardship. “Members of the 54th National Legislature, in the cause of the people, the struggle should (emphasis added) end.” President Weah used the occasion to announce the reduction in his salary by 25% and called on Members of the 54th National Legislature to do the same as well.

President Weah called on the 54th National Legislature to revisit the reports from the Constitution Review Commission, in order to take the necessary steps to put Liberia on track “In this New Liberia”. President Weah said he will advance many proposals to the 54th National Legislature, some of which will require “Referendum”.

It can be recalled that ULAA National Executive President, Hon. Vamba S. Fofana condemned the threat made by the Senate against possible presidential nominees who hold citizenship from another country, and  said no amount of threat from the Liberian National Legislature will keep Liberians outside of Liberia from playing active role, whether in Government or the private sector. President Fofana made these comments amidst a newspaper report that the Upper House of the 54th National Legislature threatening to reject Liberian citizens who hold citizenship from another country.

President Fofana, again, reminds the Legislators to be concerned about crafting new legislation to benefit the people of Liberia as President Weah sets the stage to aggressively address Liberia’s underdevelopment.

Meanwhile, ULAA is calling on all Liberians in the US Diaspora to get in touch with their friends, relatives and Members of the 54th National Legislature in the coming days to register their support for President Weah’s progressive agenda, some of which include the passing of a Citizenship Bill, the reduction in salaries of top public officials, the fight against corruption, etc. “Although all of these will depend on the political Will of these public officials, Liberians in the US Diaspora Must play their part to End the People’s Struggle in this new Liberia,” said a 70 year old Mother, who was listening to President Weah’s Speech in Illinois.

ULAA strongly hopes that the new leadership under the directions of President Weah will further strengthen cooperation and ties between ULAA and the Government of Liberia through new meaningful initiatives aimed at the development of fresh opportunities for all Liberians, the promotion of economic growth and more security in the neighborhood and across Liberia.
