President George Manneh Weah has sent a message of congratulations to the Government and people of Senegal on the occasion marking the 58th Independence Anniversary of that country on April 4th.


Senegal and The French Sudan were granted independence simultaneously from France on April 4th, 1960, and were named the Federation of Mali. Just four months later, however, the two prior colonies decided to form independent nations and on August 19th, the Federation was dissolved and Senegal became its own country.


According to a Foreign Ministry release, in his message to His Excellency Mr. Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal, the Liberian leader said it is his fervent prayer that the bonds of friendship and cooperation so happily subsisting between the two peoples and countries will be strengthened in the spirit of their bilateral ties and cooperation.


“As you celebrate this historic event, we are hopeful that you will continue to uphold the peace and stability subsisting in the Republic of Senegal for the benefit of its people and the sub-region,” President Weah said.


The Liberian Leader further stated that his country looks forward to exploring bilateral economic and development cooperation in shared areas mutually beneficial to both countries and peoples   


In furtherance of the principles of ECOWAS and the African Union, aimed at promoting international peace and security among all nations, President Weah prayed that the Almighty Allah will continue to endow His Excellency Mr. Sall and the People of Senegal with abundant wisdom, strength and the blessing of peace and economic growth.
