Friday, 9th March 2007
Monrovia, Liberia - The Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai has reiterated that Liberia owes a depth of gratitude to the West African state of Nigeria for the vanguard role it played in the restoration of peace to Liberia.

Vice President Boakai  said because of the sacrifices they made to restore Liberia to its current state, he would like to see more cooperation between Liberia and Nigeria, saying, ďYou made the sacrifices, so letís do it togetherĒ.

Vice President Boakai made the remarks Friday evening when the head of the Dunamis International Gospel Ministries Church of Nigeria, Dr. Paul Enenche, accompanied by Nigerian Ambassador Eineje Onobu, paid a courtesy call on him at his Sinkor office.

The Nigerian prelate is in the country to host a Crusade.

He said a lot of Nigerian prelates visited Liberia even when things were not as they are now, to offer special prayers for the peace we now enjoy.

Vice President Boakai said religious revivals are important because they redirect the minds of the people, especially the youth, to put behind them all of the evil things they witnessed during the war.

Dr. Enenche who runs the fastest growing church in Nigeria, expressed his desire to participate in the reconstruction of war-torn Liberia.

He prophesied that like Korea which experienced fast growth and development after a devastating civil conflict, Liberia, will become the envy of other nations.
