United Nations Peacekeepers Finally Departs Liberia After 15 Years

The UN said the peacekeepers were departing a “stable and grateful Liberia” as peacekeeping mission in the country formally ceased operations on Friday after aiding Liberia’s transition from ravaging civil war to a hopeful era of peace.

The conclusion of the 15-year operation follows a landmark election that resulted in the country’s first transfer of power from one elected president to another in 70 years.  The newly elected President, George Manneh Weah, spoke for many Liberians as he thanked the UN for helping to make that possible.

“In our darkest days, the UN stood with us,” he said in his inaugural address in January.

Mr. Weah, a former football star, won the presidency in a runoff election in December, succeeding Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who had served since 2006.

Speaking at an event last week in the capital, Monrovia, to mark the completion of the peacekeeping mission, known as UNMIL, he pledged that the good work of the UN will not be forgotten. “We will not fight again, we promise you,” he said

Speaking at an event last week in the capital, Monrovia, to mark the completion of the peacekeeping mission, known as UNMIL, he pledged that the good work of the UN will not be forgotten. “We will not fight again, we promise you,” he said

The Security Council established the peacekeeping mission for Liberia in October 2003, as violence lingered even after warring factions agreed to a cease-fire and a plan for political rebuilding. 

As peacekeepers first arrived, “the entire country was in turmoil,” recalled Lt. Gen. Daniel Opande, the first commander of UN forces in Liberia, in a recent interview.  “People were moving from place to place, looking for safety or for food.”

A newly secure environment enabled more than a million refugees and internally displaced persons to return to their homes.

 The Government established its authority throughout the country and by now has successfully held three presidential elections.  According to the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the Nigerian troops were the military backbone of (UNMIL), from 2003 to 2018 while about 20,000 Nigerians served in Liberia, with more than 1,500 women.

 However, their service did not come without sacrifice as 200 peacekeepers lost their lives due to illness, accidents or other causes while serving in Liberia.  With peace elusive in many regions where UN forces have been deployed for years, the auspicious conclusion of the Liberia mission represents a success for UN peacekeeping, which has 110,000 men and women deployed in 15 operations worldwide.

UN Deputy Secretary-General, Ms Amina Mohammed, noted during her visit to Liberia recently that a generation ago, Liberia was in “free-fall”.  According to her, “the closure of UNMIL marks the transition of all three countries to peace and democracy.”

In a sobering statement to the Security Council in New York, UN Secretary-General AntΓ³nio Guterres praised the successes of peacekeeping in West Africa.

The UN chief, however, highlighted the “serious challenges” that confront ongoing deployments in several other African countries and called for advances in military equipment and preparedness on the limits and roles of UN peacekeepers.  “Put simply, peace operations cannot succeed if they are deployed instead of a political solution, rather than in support of one,” he said.  In Liberia, a broadly shared commitment to a new, democratic political order was an essential key to progress.


The 2017 presidential election, which led to the victory of Weah, was a collective success for all Liberians, said Farid Zarif, the former Afghan diplomat who has served as the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of UNMIL for nearly three years. “It was a culmination of all the hard work that was done in post-conflict Liberia – on the part of the people of Liberia, the political leaders, the media, the civil society organisations,” Zarif said.  One of UNMIL’s core mandates was to help the Liberia National Police build its capacity to take over security responsibilities.


In July 2016, the UN handed over all security tasks to the Liberian authorities – a benchmark on the path to the March 2018 full withdrawal of the mission.  Bintou KeΓ―ta, the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, saw first-hand the results of the years of mentoring, training, and capacity-building.  She said during a recent visit to Liberia: “One proof that it worked is that there was no such huge violence during the preparations for the election.”

With stability restored and UNMIL planning to exit, the mission partnered with local organisations on development projects that could improve the lives of the Liberian people.  A series of “quick impact” projects were carried out across the country, including sustainable farming, agriculture, baking collectives, recycling, climate action, and urban development.

Yacoub El Hillo, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Liberia, said that the projects are an example of ongoing UN support for sustainable peace and development.  “It is true that UNMIL is closing, but through projects like these, new openings are being made possible for Liberians to go further,” said El Hillo, who will stay on as the UN Resident Coordinator, working with numerous UN agencies whose development work in Liberia will carry on.

Despite all of its achievements, Liberia still remains fragile on many fronts, noted Special Representative Zarif adding “We should not just presume that everything is fine and leave the country without any assistance.”

“Liberia is going to continue to require the solidarity, the support, and help of the international community for the long haul but they have already started demonstrating that they are the ones who are responsible for the future of their country.”

Nigerian lady identified as, Glory Osei, who is currently vacationing in Ghana, has given her opinion about the Ghanaian Jollof rice, which according to her, smells like perfume.

According to Glory, the environment in Ghana is more serene than it is in most Nigerian cities. In her opinion, she believes that Nigerians are always in a hurry and one will need to wonder where other people are rushing to

Ghanaian Jollof rice smells like perfume. I prefer my perfume on my clothes and not in my rice

See her Instagram post;

As a Nigerian in Nigeria you have no idea how much noise you consume until you get to a place like Accra and your ear is not about to explode because generator is a status symbol. The people here aren’t constantly in a hurry like Nigerians, I wonder where we always rushing toπŸ˜”. .
Honestly Accra is perfect for a city break if you don’t want to travel far.

A one way ticket from Lagos to Accra is around N40,000-N50,000, and if you are resilient you can travel by road. .
I love this city and the people but I still won’t go anywhere near their jollof rice (I’m 100% in support of Nigerian jollof), I made an attempt few days ago but I just can’t handle perfumed rice😩. I prefer my perfume on my clothes and not in my riceπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. .

Man Narrated How His Pastor Almost Killed His Wife During Honeymoon

A man who is identified as Allison Bisongs Hycintho on Facebook has narrated how his Pastor almost killed his new wife while they were on honeymoon.

Read Allison Bisongs Hyacintho Facebook post below;
I Don't feel too comfortable sharing this, but my big mouth will just not let me. Ummm, this is to teach somebody out there that believers 're not boring people, neither are we missing anything by doing things the Jesus way.

Some time ago a pastor friend of mine got married and it was awesome for me, a very special guy. Him and his bae dated for nearly 4years without sex, no kissing, no touching, no laying of hands in dangerous places, no please-let-me-touch-it-small, I mean nothing sexual, they were both believing God through faith that they are sexually compatible, relevant on the marriage bed.

During their honeymoon I volunteered to be their errand boy for the period of their honey, since they honeyed themselves in a fancy hotel close to where i live πŸ˜‚. I took dinner to them most nights and sometimes breakfast too in the morning, hotel food wasn't so nice, worse is, it was crazy expensive.

Okay so one morning like that I took breakfast to them as usual, as I got up to their hotel room, just when I was about to knock on the door I started to hear a hard voice coming from inside the room.
The voice was sounding like "mme kpa, mme kpa, mme kpa".
It was a woman's voice screaming in Efik language, and in English it means "i have die, I have die, I have die."

Arrrhh ahhh! I Was like "which one is I have die? Die where? No no no bro cannot beat his wife, he is too meek to even hurt a fly, nope, i know him too well".
Slowly the voice began to rise, increasing in tempo, in curiosity I plastered by ears to the hotel door to be sure of what i was hearing;
"I have die, I have die, mme mpka" was the sound playing behind the door like a confuse music Dj on the early morning grove.

Quickly i rushed to the door on a rescue mission and knocked very hard, what kind of i have die is that one after a wedding, I thought it was a heart attack or something, until hmmmm, when bro finally unlocked the door it was like someone opened a bakery, the heat that embraced me nearly tore my shirtπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ, it was crazy up in that hotel room. As I got in and observed the state of aunty, I immediately remembered where the scripture said "who God has joined together, let no man separate." - with the stern look aunty gave me it was obvious she really wanted to die the die that she was screaming. πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£
Look guys, there is so much joy in waiting to do it right, so much peace, the best time to have sex is with God's divine seal of approval, inside that covenant there is no such thing as guilt, fear or judgment. There is no asking for forgiveness over any sin of touch or sin of sight, all you will just be saying is mme kpa! mme kpa!! Kill me!! I have die!!!πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€And God will just be laughing at the two two both of you like πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£ die well, uncle kill herrrrrrrrrr!! we have enough space in heaven,.🀣🀣🀣🀣
And see ehhn my dear virtuous and waiting aunties, if you know the kind of plans our faithful brothers have for you, hehehehe, you will know that you have entered it, our spirit is sooo willing to wait until the right time and our flesh has started planning ahead, all this abstinence and virtue we are displaying is just fasting, by the time we share the grace at the marriage altar and break our fast, you will know the difference between six and half a dozen. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.

And dear uncles who are faithfully waiting with a fast, you see all this touching, kissing and hmmmm that is hungrying you to do now? Don't worry it is you that will tire, don't let this long long scalfs our sisters are wearing fool you, acrobatic warfare is waiting for You somewhere, by the time aunty is saying mme kpa mme kpa and has refused to kpa for almost 5 hours, You will know the difference between It is well and it is finished. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ€£πŸ€£. Sir just relax yourself and follow God's lead, alright.

Stop sending your kids out with their friends knowing that they don’t have any money on them. Pay attention! 

Read the story by Facebook user, Demeshe Brown:
"Stop sending your kids out with their friends knowing that they don’t have any money on them. I was working today and eight young guys came in and they all ordered and one of them was kinda lingering on the side and another joked “ HAH, you THOUGHT you were bout to get something” after he finished placing his order... and the lil dude nicely laughed it off and ordered one cookie , while all 7 of his “friends” ate GREAT.. and didn’t offer him a thing. Then he must’ve found some more change bc he came back up and ordered another cookie. I waited until they were about to go and caught the lil guy before he went out.. I rushed a whole plate to him like “you forgot your order sir, sorry it took so long” and whispered to him “Pay attention to how ppl treat you.”... Not to mention, he was a young black kid and all of his friends weren’t..  We can’t let our own go out sad. I can’t do it.
