LIBA President Decries Tribal, Sectarian Division

first_imgLiberian Business Association president Dee Maxwell S. Kemayah is calling Liberians to rise up against those in the habit of using tribal and sectarian divisions to inflict inequality on Liberians.Making the call last Sunday at the Mount Nebo Baptist Church in Sinkor, where he and other personalities of the church were honored, Mr. Kemayah noted that at one point in time a certain group of people sectionalized the people of Liberia and the majority were marginalized in the use of the country’s wealth.There was another time in the country’s history, Mr. Kemayah said, when people were asked for their tribes before receiving any opportunity to acquire something or to have the right of passage.As a result of these situations, the LIBA president said the country has suffered not only economic and developmental retrogression, but also suffered years of civil strife that caused serious consequences on its growth and development.It is this same divide and rule syndrome that the country still experiences today, where millions of citizens are facing abject poverty with no social services extended to them.Sensing that it is the same situation pertaining in some Liberian churches, Mr. Kemayah urged religious institutions including churches and mosques, to practice values that will show cohesion instead of division.To create an inclusive society that will be pleasing to everyone, citizens must seek a person who will bring value to the society and not one who instigates divide and rule.He admonished that Liberians need to go beyond tribal or sectional sentiments to appraise people by what they contribute to the society.The LIBA president was honored along with three others, Senator Edward B. Dagoseh, Stalink K. Javon and David T. Morris, for what the church described as their “valuable services rendered to society”.Senator Dagoseh, who is also a deacon of the church, said in brief remarks that he does not believe in too much talking, but taking concrete actions that will impact people.He then contributed LD$60,000 towards the school project undertaken by the church.The senior pastor of the church, Rev. Galison M. George, recounted that these men, especially Mr. Kemayah, had taken personal interest in the activities of the church.Dea. George O.C. Kaicora, Sr., in his sermon, urged all those serving on the church’s Deacon Board to consider themselves as servants responsible for three tables, which are, the Holy Communion, the pastor’s table and benevolence.Dea. Kaicora urged them not to exercise authority over the pastor of the church, but see themselves as helpers of the pastor.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
