Special Awards In Pictures

River Gee County Senator, Conmany Wesseh has called for an adoption of a working holiday and a national award for peace in recognition, acknowledgment and recommitment to the restoration, consolidation and promotion of peace in Liberia.

In a July 11, 2017 communication sent to the Plenary of Liberian Senate, he appealed to the august body for the adoption of the day into law. “I wish to appeal for your adoption of a working holiday and a national award for peace in recognition, acknowledgment and recommitment to the restoration, consolidation and promotion of peace in Liberia,” Senator Wesseh is quoted as saying in his communication to plenary.

He wants the Liberian Senate, the House of Representatives and the Executive to pass into law a National Day of Peace on the 18th of August each year as a working holiday and the creation of a special national medal for peace which could be awarded in two categories at separate ceremonies.

The River Gee Senator asserted that his decision to call for such a day is triggered by the fact that for 14 years, the country was engulfed in war with itself and the country was condemned to a failed state and a beggar nation.

However, with the intervention of Liberian men, women and youth, including other international bodies such as the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU), peace was restored in an extraordinary way to end the war.

He recalled that following much sacrifice by Liberians and representatives of warring factions, on August 18, 2003, Liberians leaders made a solemn and strong pledge to end the civil war through the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

“By their signature, the leaders, in our name, promised us and the world that Liberia would never go to war with itself again, that Liberia territory would never be used for war against its neighbors and that we would rebuild, reform and re-create governing institutions in our country,” Senator Wesseh recounted in his communication.

However, Senator Wesseh said he believes that by taking this legislative action in remembrance of the CPA would serve as a reminder to Liberians and all those who according to him stood by the country during its dark past.
