Liberians In U.S. Pour Praises On Vice President Boakai

Hundreds of Liberians from diverse backgrounds on last Saturday, April 15, 2017, converged on the Presidential Ballroom of the Clarion Hotel in suburban Philadelphia town of Essington to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate what they termed as monumental life time achievements of the Unity Party Standard Bearer Joseph Nyuma Boakai in his protracted years of serve to the Liberian nation.

According to a dispatch from Anthony Kesselly, a member of the Vice President delegation from the United States, said a group under the banner, “Friends of the Vice President of the Republic of Liberia Joseph Nyuma Boakai” presented to the Vice President a plaque as a sign of their appreciation for his services provided over the years to the people of Liberia.

The group also delivered during the occasion in their statement cataloged their kinsman’s various areas of dutiful and honest service as well as the manifold successes in positively impacting the lives of his kinsmen.

Under the leadership of notable Liberian J.D. Tiah Slanger, the Organization was recently launched and has grown so rapidly in membership and scope of operation.

During that night of the celebration of Uncle Joe, as he is affectionately called, followed a hectic day on last Friday, April 14, 2017, in which the Liberian Vice President engaged the movers and shakers of Philadelphia at two important events specifically staged to pivot Liberian causes and attract top notch City educators and business to venture into Liberia.

The VP addressed the Liberian Educational Forum at the Drexel University and then went on to address the Liberian Business Forum at the Greenberg Traurig, L.L.C.
