Speaking to journalists at the close of the 2019-2020 National County Sports Meet at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium Sports complex in Monrovia, the Chief Patron of Sports said that the essence of the tournament was for Liberians to come together as one people so that the spirit of unity can prevail.
He noted that the county meet brings unity among Liberians because people from different segments of society gather to grace the tournament and cheer their respective counties peacefully.
“A beautiful county meet was organized and well attended by all Liberians, and I want to use this medium to extend my gratitude to all sports lovers and contributors for making the tournament colorful,” local media reports quoted President Weah as saying on Friday, 31 January 2020.
President Weah went on to say that the national tournament, which ended on Thursday, was also intended to discover young talents in the country and give them the opportunity to form part of the national team in the future.
“I saw lots of talented young players, who will make a great impact on our national team that will represent Liberia in major tournaments, and I also want to encourage the Nimba County players because they are potential future national team players,” President Weah stated.
