MONROVIA: Liberian President, George Manneh Weah, has bestowed “Patriot of the Highest Order” and an exemplary Public Servant Liberia’s title on Vice President Chief/ Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor, at ceremony marking her 60-birthday anniversary, held at the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (EJS) Ministerial Complex, on Tubman Boulevard over the weekend.

President Weah asserted, “Madam Vice President, when we should have been bestowing honor upon you on this your Natal Day, you have instead demonstrated a deep sense of selflessness by choosing to honor us, something that is a rarity in humanity, “he said.

According to Weah, by the unveiling of this beautiful Mosaic, the Vice President, herself has risen to a higher height by lifting up women in our nation who have worked and are still working for change and transformation.

The President indicated that women have been trailblazers in their own rights and have broken glass ceilings and that they have boldly gone where many have feared to go.

“By lifting Liberian women up in this way, you are raising the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Liberians by amplifying and re-echoing the voices of these great Liberian Women,” President Weah told Vice President Taylor.

The Liberian leader said he was humbled by her preferment of him to receive the honor, but added that, frankly, all he has done, and continue to do for the advancement of women, comes out of his deepest conviction that in Liberia, women are the roots upon which the Trees of our Nationhood can grow and blossom, bringing light and love to all, working in tandem with our Administration to realize the gains for a better and stronger Liberia.

“As I behold this wonderful Mosaic, I am without any doubt that all of these women, both past and present, have been strong women,” President Weah added.

He noted that a strong woman stands up not for herself, but for others also selfless, and not selfish.
He pointed out that, in the course of the Nation’s history, particularly during difficult periods, it is these strong women who have stood the test of time.

“I admire and salute you, my strong Liberian women for your unrelenting efforts, your strong advocacies, and your persistent attitudes have enabled us to ride out the stormy seas, and advance Liberia to a peaceful shore,” he said.

The President observed that the Liberia’s Vice President continue to be a firm voice in sustaining the peace in Liberia. Weah said as Liberia’s Feminist-in-Chief, he was grateful to her but especially to two of the strongest women that he have ever known.

“I speak of no other than you Madam Ellen Johnson- Sirleaf” and you Madam Jewel Howard-Taylor,” he concluded.
