Football stakeholders of Liberia have joined the peace initiative of Amb. George Weah to call on the ‘Ellen Step Down Campaigners’ to abandon their plan.
Speaking today at the Liberia Football Association Headquarters in Monrovia, the President of Georgia FC, Wilmot Smith, said the stakeholders’ fraternity for the spirit and goodness of the game can only be achieved in the presence of conspicuous peace and stability, which engenders the growth and development of football and by extension, the nation’s pride and joy, the Lone Star. Smith said without peace, they will not have the time to play the world’s best sport for now in Liberia.
He said all 22 team presidents of the Liberia Football Association are optimistic owing to the fact that President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Administration has attracted huge foreign direct investments into the country in the tune of billions of United States Dollars, which when managed well, will lead to massive job creation and serve as an impetus to the government’s agenda for transformation.
The 22 presidents in clear and unequivocal terms reject the ‘Ellen Step Down’ campaigners, adding that there is no space for such unorthodox practice in the current democratic space.
They called on Ambassador George Weah and his Weah All Stars to participate in a friendly encounter this weekend at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium towards the promotion of peace.
