Minister Pledges Support For Liberia
Youth and Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, has pledged his outfit’s massive support for the people of Liberia.
He described the former World Best player, now president elect of Liberia, George Oppong Weah, as an epitome of words in sports that a country needs; he has demonstrated nationalism and patriotism.
Last Friday, Mrs Clar Weah paid a courtesy call on the Minister at his office after attending the CAF Awards in Accra, where Hon. Asiamah urged Liberians to rally behind the newly-elected president to succeed.
The wife of the former AC Milan/Monaco man, Clar Weah expressed thanks to the Minister and the people of Ghana for their hospitality, particularly in sports.
She appealed to the Ministry to support her country to revamp sports and empower the youth.
Hon Asiamah told his guest “You and your husband are always welcome home, the Ministry would always help you when the need arises.
“The Winneba Sports College is available and through the Sports Ministry, they would offer education to those interested in developing themselves to help promote sports in Liberia.”
He added “I am happy that he has been elected by the people, he is a young man and I know how passionate he is about youth development.
“This is time for the people to work hand-in-hand to make the country work again, there are critical issues like healthcare and quality education to be catered for and I am convinced that he would do well.”
Mrs Clar also indicated “Ghana has received us very well and it has been incredible over the years. The support has been in various forms and my husband and I are very much grateful.
“It is a new dawn in Liberia and we have a lot to learn from Ghana in terms of youth development and empowerment. We believe that for a country to grow and prosper, the youth must take active part in sports, and that is what my husband stands for.
“This is a new task for me and I know with the help of everyone, Liberia would get to where it truly belongs to.”
