President George Manneh Weah has been challenged not to fail the Church during observance of the first year anniversary of his administration.
The event on Tuesday, 22 January at the Dominion Christian Fellowship in Congo Town marks the first year anniversary of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) – led government, following the swearing in of President Weah and his Vice President Jewel Howard – Taylor on 22 January 2018.
The service was held under the theme:” We thank God.” Emphasis has also been made that President Weah is president for all of Liberia, not some of Liberia.
Vice President Taylor, First Lady Clar Weah, the Speaker and members of the House, the Pro Tempore and members of the Liberian Senate, the Chief Justice and his associates, the diplomatic corps and members of the public attended the event.
Dominion Christian Fellowship Archbishop Isaac Winker challenges Mr. Weah not to fail the Church amidst opposition and “bad mouthing.”
Making prophetic declarations during thanksgiving service Bishop Winker decreed that Liberians be committed to their country with true patriotism and nationalism.
He further urges support for today’s leader to pave the way for tomorrow’s leader.
“All of you politicians in this nation, hear me, if you don’t support the person in power today, there will be no support for you tomorrow,” he says, adding that Mr. Weah is bound to succeed.
Bishop Winker commands that Liberians’ hearts return to their leaders, saying it is their job to follow because whatever God will do, He will do it through a leader.
“So Liberians let us not wait for tomorrow, if you don’t support the leader today, there will be no tomorrow’s leader. The support we give to our leader today paves the way for another leader that will come tomorrow,” he says.
The clergy discourages Liberians against criticizing the government on social media that he says paints the ugly.
Making remarks at the first year anniversary, President Weah reaffirms his administration’s commitment to the promotion of peace, protection of human rights, freedom of speech, protection of women and girls and the development of Liberia.
He reflected on the goodness of the Almighty God that brought Liberia where it is today, and expressed thanks to Liberians for the confidence reposed in him to serve the nation.
Closing his brief remark, Mr. Weah wished Liberians happy one year anniversary and a prosperous New Year.
Earlier President Weah along with his officials, and members of the diplomatic corps were moved to dance when Nigerian gospel musical star Emmanuel Benjamin, popularly known by stage name Eben, sang his popular song titled: “Victory.”
President Weah also partly sang the song when he was about to make statement at the event.
Delivering the exaltation at the thanksgiving service, Bishop George D. Harris says President Weah is the president for all Liberia, not some of Liberia.
Bishop Harris expresses gratitude to God for Liberia, saying Liberia belongs to Jesus.
He notes that when the 24th president goes to the Church to give thanks, Liberia is represented because he is the symbol of the country.
He notes that their assembly at the Church Tuesday was to give thanks to Yahweh.
