OPEN LETTER OF COMMENDATION TO THE HOUSE SPEAKER HONORABLE J. EMMANUEL NUQUAY FOR HIS SUPPORT OF DUAL CTITIZENSHIP FROM: LIBERIAN ADVOCACY FOR CHANGE
We, THE LIBERIAN ADVOCACY FOR CHANGE, made up of citizens of Liberia, residing in the Diaspora, and in Liberia, would like through this medium to commend House Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay for his bold stance, foresight, patriotism, farsightedness and support on the issue of Dual Citizenship.
We commend the Speaker when he says that he “supports dual citizenship because it will be in compliance with best practice to meet international standards, and will welcome back onboard Liberians who are already citizens of other countries.” The Speaker rightly concludes, “If other countries are doing it, including our neighbors, and are developed and developing, it would be expedient for our country to accept it.”
In light of this bold and patriotic stance taken by our Honorable Speaker, THE LIBERIAN ADVOCACY FOR CHANGE would like to call on the President of Liberia, the National Legislature, Government officials, Leaders of political parties, Members of the Clergy, Distinguished citizens and all well-meaning Liberians, at home and abroad, to join the Speaker of the House of Representatives in ensuring that Dual Citizenship for Liberians in the diaspora become the law of Liberia.
THE LIBERIAN ADVOCACY FOR CHANGE initiative is not affiliated with any political party, religion, tribal or ethnic organization. Our initiative is solely because we are Liberians who continue to support our friends and family in Liberia by sending millions of dollars every year by Money Gram and Western Union which significantly helps to stimulate the Liberian economy. This is in addition to the thousands of barrels and sometimes cash by others going to Liberia.
Besides this financial contribution, we have the burning desire to help in any way we can to contribute to the development of our country. We want to help shape the present and the future of our country by opening businesses, bringing in organizations and friends we have made abroad who can help to make life for all Liberians better.
