The Liberian President, Dr George Manneh Weah, has conferred the award of “Distinguished Service Order of the Republic of Liberia” on some senior officers of the Nigerian Army (NA) in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the growth and development of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).

 

In a press statement e-signed and released to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP) by the Nigerian Army’s Spokesperson, Brig Gen Onyema Nwachukwu, stated that, “The President of the Republic of Liberia, Dr George Manneh Weah, has conferred the award of “Distinguished Service Order of the Republic of Liberia” on some senior officers of the Nigerian Army (NA) in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the growth and development of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL). He made the presentation during the 65th Armed Forces of Liberia Day Celebration held on Friday, February 11, 2022 at the Barclay Training Centre, Camp Johnson Road, Monrovia, Liberia.

While presenting the award, President Weah stated that at every Armed Forces of Liberia Day celebration, the government recognizes and awards the “Distinguished Service Order” to individuals whose outstanding contributions have significantly impacted on the growth and development of the Armed Forces of Liberia, the nation, and humanity,” Nwachukwu writes.
The President stated that “As the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia, it is pleasing to duly recognize and congratulate this year’s Distinguished Service Order Award recipients.” The award is in recognition of their service to Liberia, which has brought honor upon these gentlemen officers,” he added.
The awardees also got a letter of commendation from the Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Liberia, Ambassador Godfrey Anichebe Odudigbo, for making Nigeria proud.
Receiving the awards and letters of commendation on behalf of the recipients, Colonel Gbenga Sunday Oyinwola expressed gratitude to the President, Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya, for the opportunity to have served Nigeria in their various capacities. He stated further that the award will motivate the recipients to be more productive in their service to the NA and the Nigerian nation.

The award was conferred on the senior officers, who were seconded to the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) at different times as part of the ECOWAS Advisory Training Team. They contributed immensely to the building and restructuring of the new AFL.
