President Weah Pushes the Case of Diaspora Liberians; Says the Full Participation of the Liberian diaspora community in the Country is an Important Part of the Nation-building Process

President George Weah has described the “Liberian Diaspora Community” as a valuable asset to the nation’s growth and development.

According to him, the full participation of the Liberian diaspora community in the Country is an important part of the nation-building process.

He termed young Africans in the diaspora as indispensable partners in the development of their countries, adding that Africans at home must welcome, embrace, and recognize those in the diaspora, as they are one people.

Addressing the African and diaspora young leaders’ forum in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, the Liberian Chief Executive called on African leaders to recognize and acknowledge the significance of the millions of African compatriots living in the diaspora communities, whose contributions are pivotal to the growth and development of the continent.

President Weah said this collaborative effort will serve as the bridge connecting Africans in the diaspora back to their collective roots and cultural identities.

He wants African governments to create the enabling environment and the requisite framework that will allow young people in the diaspora to  contribute, through their education and innovation, to the transformation of the continent.

Meanwhile, the Liberian leader has disclosed that not many opportunities have been created to allow young people in Africa to reach their full potential, stressing that such situations have made a growing number of young people in Africa to seek opportunities in the Western world.

President Weah believes that young people are capable of conquering the world if given a place to stand, something he said the youth of Africa can succeed in their chosen fields, if they are prepared to be diligent, disciplined, and determined.
