‘Sports is a Unifier,’ Says Veep Boakai

Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai says sport is a unifier and therefore the country can be better united through serious engagements in the various sporting disciplines.

In an interview on a local radio yesterday, Ambassador Boakai said though he did not have the opportunity to play sport, soccer being his preference, the intrinsic value of sports makes it more expedient to be used as a medium to unite people.

He revealed that he would be traveling to London, England, sometime in October this year to bring back a banner for Arsenal fans in Liberia.
