President Weah Commends Morocco’s AU Return as Reinforcing African Unity

President George Weah lauded Morocco’s return to the African Union on Sunday. For Weah, Morocco’s return reinforces the African unity.

Weah described Morocco’s return as a positive development for the continent, in a press meeting parallel to the 30th AU Heads of State and Government Summit, held in the Ethiopian capital

The 30th AU Summit is marked by the participation of three newly-appointed Presidents: Liberia’s George Weah, Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta and Angola’s Joao Lourenco.

Thirty countries supported Morocco’s bid to return to the African Union last year, while nine countries stood against the bid, including Algeria. Many African leaders welcomed Morocco’s return after 33-year of absence. In April 2017, Alpha Conde, President of the Republic of Guinea said that “Morocco’s return to the AU will make a remarkable contribution to this exhilarating undertaking of solidarity among the African peoples.”

Conde’s remarks on Morocco’s return are echoed by many African leaders, including Tanzanian Foreign Minister Augustine Mahiga, who said on Friday, January 26, that “Morocco’s contribution to the AU is of great importance,” when recalling King Mohammed VI’s “historical” speech at the 28th AU Summit in January 2017.

To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
