HIS EXCELLENCY DR. GEORGE MANNEH WEAH

PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA

 

ON THE OCCASION OF THE RESIGNATION OF

 

HON. GBEZOHNGAR M. FINDLEY

 

AS FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA

 

JULY 28, 2020

 

I am pleased today to accept the resignation of Hon. Gbehzongar Milton Findley as Foreign Minister of the Republic of Liberia.

 

Hon. Findley has been Foreign Minister and Dean of the Cabinet since the beginning of my Administration in January 2018.  During all this time, he has conducted the Foreign Policy of my Government efficiently and effectively.  He has maintained and strengthened our bilateral relationships with friendly countries, and has ably represented Liberia’s interests at all multilateral institutions and forums.  Minister Findley has served with dedication and distinction, and I want to personally thank him, in this public manner, for his service and commitment.

 

As we are all aware, Gbehzongar is leaving the Cabinet, based on a petition from his people to serve and to pursue new avenues and opportunities for further service to the Liberian people through the Coalition for Democratic Change.  We want to wish him well in his new endeavors, and good luck in the ensuing political primaries. 

 

Hon. Findley, as you now set out in pursuit of a new facet of your political career, I wish you the best.

 

As Chairman of the Cabinet, I want to take the liberty of saying goodbye to you on behalf of all your colleagues, as you now vacate your leadership role of Dean.  We will miss you.

 

May the God that we serve continue to bless you and your family, and guide and protect you in all that you do.
