Monrovia, Liberia - President Ellen Johnson has described as a true spirit of cooperation an initiative by Nimba County Senator Prince Johnson to secure a consignment of drugs for the John F. Kennedy Memorial hospital. The President was speaking on Thursday at the hospital when Senator Johnson presented to her a consignment of drugs donated by an International Medical Group, (Medi-Lab), to the government of Liberia. The President asked the JFK authorities to ensure that some of the drugs are sent to Nimba County as an incentive for Senator Johnsonís initiative.

The President also thanked the staff of the JFK for their sacrificial services, talents, skills and time. The Liberian leader attributed the transformation taking place at the hospital to the dedication and commitment of the staff.

For his part, Senator Johnson said the decision to secure the consignment was his contribution to the Presidentís goal to address the health needs of the people of Liberia by providing safe and affordable drugs. Senator Johnson said he and the people of Nimba remain supportive of the programs and policies of government because they are geared toward improving the living standards of all Liberians.
