Must read

African unity and cooperation are crucial to achieving irreversible socio-economic transformation, Liberian President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has said.

Speaking as the Special Guest of Honour at the 18th Congregation of the Regional Maritime University (RMU) held in Accra last Saturday (June 29, 2024), President Boakai stated that Africa has the potential to lead the global economy if its leaders embrace the spirit of unity and cooperation to effectively harness the continent’s abundant resources.

“It is important to remain united and collectively utilize the abundant resources to advance socio-economic development,” he stated.

Citing RMU, governed by five member states including Liberia, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, The Gambia, and Ghana, as an example, he noted that such collaborations could be replicated to support other aspects of the economy.

“The idea of the establishment was visionary and the collaborative efforts of the founding fathers are in line with the aspirations of the African Union. It is important to recognize the unity and cooperation among member states in maintaining RMU for over four decades,” he added.
