A student of the University of Liberia, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) School Of International Relations, Ebenezer M. Wilson has called on Liberians to seek national unity in the midst of their diversities.
Mr. Wilson noted that it was only thru genuine unity that Liberia could leap forward in its quest of becoming a developed nation.
He argued that politics and tribal persuasions are only about identity and ideology and that those should not serve as barriers to national unity.
According to him, every nation has five crises-identity, legitimacy, penetration, participation and distribution but as he put it “other countries are trying hard to minimize the impacts of these, why can’t Liberia do same” The IBB Student remarks were contained in a keynote address he delivered on the National Flag Day at the Induction of Officers of the United Bassa Organization in the Americas (UNIBOA)Margibi Chapter held in Unification City.
Mr. Wilson paid homage to the founding fathers of the organization which was established in the 70s to unite Bassanians overseas especially in the Americas; describing it as bridge linking them to home.
He cautioned those inducted to develop a roadmap that will make the organization visible.
Mr. Wilson then warned against corruption and other forms of immoralities if the leaders of UNIBOA intend to succeed.
The induction brought together scores of delegates from the US’ chapter and those in country. Among those inducted include Joel Zangar, as Chair, Patrick Goah as Co. Chair and Agnes Nagbe as Secretary.
