FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

WASHINGTON, January 1, 2018 – The Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas, (ULAA or The Union) congratulates President-Elect His Excellency George Manneh Weah for his victory in the Run-Off elections held on December 26, 2017 in Liberia. President – elect Weah won with a 23% margin over his rival Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai. As of 3:00PM on Friday, December 29, 2017, the National Elections Commission of Liberia (NEC) announced that George Manneh Weah has a total of 732,185, which accounts for 61.5%, while Vice President Joseph Boakai has a total vote of 457,579, and accounts for 38.5%, with a margin of 274,606 or 23%.

 

ULAA wants to further congratulate President-elect Weah for beginning a good conversation with his former rival Vice President Boakai, his colleagues at the Liberian Senate and the Liberian people by calling on them to join him in the building of the new Republic of Liberia. ULAA believes that a nation triumphs when Business, Government and Society (BGS) work closely together, and that any one of these three vibrant elements cannot survive on its own. The call by President-Elect George Manneh Weah is just and a good start.

 

ULAA maintains that for a nation to witness any growth in a new government, that government MUST be firmed in her decisions, irrespective of political, social and tribal affiliations. ULAA strongly recommends that the Weah Government MUST move swiftly to establish a Court of Corruption to deal with cases emanating from corrupt practices, a life-long and deepened practice that continues to eat the fabrics of the Liberian society and economy. ULAA cries out to the Weah Government to conduct the people’s business in straight adherence of the Liberian Constitution and existing policies. ULAA further cries out to the Weah Administration to be mindful of White Collar thieves, for they only cry wolves to distract the path of development, while at the same time diverting Liberia’s meager resources into their personal use.

ULAA says the Liberian people are frustrated with certain practices of past governments, and they see the Weah Administration as the Government for the people, and their rights, so guaranteed in the Liberian Constitution, cannot be impeded by any individual or group. ULAA recognizes the current gains made under the Sirleaf’s Administration, and promises to provide advisement to the new government and promote her policies, if need be. However, ULAA observes that 12 years of slow improvement in the people’s conditions warrants a low score for the current Administration, and it hopes that the Weah Administration will do the right thing to Country and people above self or family. ULAA further maintains that where there are violations on the people’s constitutional rights, it will waste No time to hold the Weah Government to her feet to provide answers and/or immediate solutions.

 

ULAA says it expects the Government to cater to the basic needs of the people, such as providing good public education, healthcare, food sufficiency, and a secured environment for their enjoyment.

ULAA comes to H. E. George Manneh Weah this First Day of January, 2018, to counsel with him and his Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, who, like us, have been elected to carry out a mandate of the Liberian people here in the US Diaspora, in order that without partisanship and tribal bigotry, the Weah Government and ULAA may cooperate and collaborate to continue the restoration of our national wellbeing and, equally important, to build on the carcasses of the past a new structure designed better to meet the present problems of modern civilization in the Republic of Liberia. Indeed, such a structure includes not only the relations of industry and agriculture and finance to each other, but also the effect which all of these three have on our individual citizens and on the people as a Nation.

ULAA deeply recognizes when President-Elect Weah said in his acceptance speech in part, “I will not write for you the best speeches, but I will make for you the best decisions to develop Liberia. I know one day Liberians will get tired with me, and so I want to leave a big mark before that time.” ULAA says President-Elect Weah’s comments give the Liberian people a renew change of hope, and a truth historical perspective of himself, when he spoke shyly but acted swiftly, and became the BEST Soccer Player in Liberia, the BEST Soccer Player in West Africa, BEST Soccer Player in Africa, and the BEST Soccer Player of the World.

In his forceful but usual convincing voice, ULAA National Executive President, Hon. Vamba S. Fofana said, “We cannot go back again; modern civilization must not stand still in Liberia. We have to undertake new methods to put Liberia amongst comity of nations. It is our task to perfect, to improve, to alter when necessary, but in all sincerity Liberia and Liberians MUST go forward with one voice, in unanimity. To consolidate what we are doing, to make our economic and social structure capable of dealing with modern life means a whole lots of sacrifices and the joint task of Liberia’s National Legislative, the Judicial, and the Executive branches of the national Government.”

 

Now that Liberia is definitely in the process of recovery, ULAA says lines have to be rightly drawn between those who want the BEST in and/or for Liberia and those who are self-centered and are against progress. This means, a reform of many old methods from decadent regimes to a permanent readjustment of many of our ways of thinking, and therefore, of many of our social and economic activities. ULAA says this is the time for true nation building free of corrupt practices, mismanagement, malfeasance, misfeasance and the misplacement of qualified individuals in positions.

Meanwhile, ULAA congratulates Vice President Joseph N. Boakai for the mature and robust concession speech made on Friday, December 29, 2017. ULAA appreciates Vice President Boakai’s speech and describes it as one full of rigor and a reassurance of Liberians that despite his lost, Liberia is above all citizens. “I congratulate the winner, Ambassador George Manneh Weah, and pray that God will guide and guard him as he takes upon the onerous responsibility of steering the affairs of our nation,” said Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai.

 

ULAA recognizes the significance of Vice President Boakai’s speech, when he, the Vice President, made the clarion call for Liberians to “Think Liberia, Build Liberia, and Love Liberia.” As President-Elect, George Manneh Weah officially swears into office on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 as Liberia’s 25th President, ULAA calls on all of its member chapters and Liberians throughout the Mighty Globe to roll up their sleeves and get ready to make the sacrifices to build Liberia for a Change of Hope.

 

Together, we will deliver the promise of service. Together, we will unite for the common good of our beloved Country, Liberia. Together, we will struggle for a vibrant, cohesive and better Liberia. The great pride we take in being part of ULAA derives from more than just the outstanding caliber of individual community involvement; it also stems from belonging to a community characterized by integrity, open-mindedness and dedication to serving others with compassion.

  2. Awesome blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
