The Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism is urging Liberians to give moral support to the President of the Liberia Football Association or LFA Musa Bility, in his bid to contest for the presidency of the world football governing body, FIFA.
Election for the Federation of International Football Association is February, 2016 in Zurich. Making the call Tuesday in a regular press briefing, the Minister of Information Lewis G. Brown, said the government is committed to insuring the vision of the LFA boss is achieved, saying “We will stand with, support him, cross whatever waters it takes us to cross, sign any documents that comes our way just to raise the Liberian flag at the top level.”
Brown said many young and enterprising Liberian men and women have broughtpride to the country, but their efforts were not recognized nationally. However,he stressed that the Bility’s candidacy needs the support of every Liberian and that his effort is far from politics as his success means success for Liberia.
The MICAT boss noted there are lots of Liberians, who truly want to make their country great, while others only sit and make negative criticisms about things they cannot defend. He said Liberian should learn to celebrate with their fellow citizens in the moments of joy adding, “We set a great history by electing the first female president in Africa, after that another two Liberian citizens won the Noble peace award followed by a 17-year-old Liberian, Abraham Kieta from the slum community of West Point winning the International Children Peace Award.It simply means we should all celebrate our success as Liberians.”
He said it is about time Liberians join hands in supporting another Liberian’s success, saying “No matter your tribe, we can do whatever people say we cannot do as a nation.We must prove to them that we can do everything that comes our way.”
