Our fellow citizens, Sunday, July 26, 2020, is a special day for Liberia. On this day, in 1847, our nation declared its independence and proclaimed the freedom of its people. Today, after 173 years of existence, we remain determined and courageous even after a 15-year civil war and two public health disasters – Ebola and Covid-19.
The Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) is proud of the perseverance and tenacity of Liberians through this rich, but challenging, history.
This is why the CPP extends happy Independence Day greetings to all residents and citizens of Liberia, wherever they may be.
The CPP also extends happy Independence Day greetings to the President and Government of Liberia; the Christian and Islamic communities; our Elders, Zoes, Bodeos and Traditional leaders.
We wish all of you joyous Independence Day celebrations. As we reflect on this day, let us remain united, remembering that in union strong, success is sure.
Let us also remember and reflect on the road we have traveled and remind ourselves of the journey ahead of us as a nation.
We are challenged by the difficulties of Covid-19, and many of us face daily challenges to live the lives we desire and fulfill our dreams. In spite of these difficulties, let us remain determined and stand united to defeat Covid-19, for it cannot and must not defeat us. Don’t forget, Covid-19 is real.
Continue to observe all health protocols – wear your mask, wash your hands, and keep social distance.
Finally, we must also remain determined and stand united in working for a better society that will provide opportunities for all of us to live the lives we desire and fulfill our dreams.
God bless Liberia, and God bless the people!
