The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Francis Korkpor, has alarmed that Liberia is at war with an unseen enemy that needs the collective efforts of every citizen to battle the deadly Ebola virus that is causing havoc in the land.
Justice Korkpor said the war on Ebola is very critical in ensuring that young people live and tell the story. He urged youths of Liberia to be very careful in the ongoing fight so as not to infect themselves.
The Chief Justice said young people are the ones who will take over from the older folks, and as such they need not to die in this Ebola crisis.
Justice Korkpor spoke recently in his office at the Temple of Justice when the Airfield Patriotic Youths Association (APYA) paid him a courtesy visit and sympathized with him for the lost of his mother.
He encouraged young people to always be mindful in everything do in life, recalling that his mother was special to him and lived her life before departing the earth.
Justice Korkpor added that his mother was ninety-one (91) years age, noting that his mother brought him up in the right manner, something he said he’s benefiting from now in life.
He thanked the youths of Airfield for being farsighted by going to sympathize with him during his bereavement. Speaking earlier, the Chairman of APYA, Mr. Edward Normal, praised the Chief Justice for his interest and effort in fighting Ebola out of Liberia.
Mr. Normal explained that the office of the Chief Justice had donated some anti Ebola materials through an executive of his office, Francis Koko Gray, to help with the ongoing fight against the virus.
He said Mr. Gray on behalf of the office of the Chief Justice, donated buckets, soap, Clorox and Chlorine for distribution among the public. Normal said APYA will get involved in sensitizing fellow youths of the community about the Ebola fight.
