The Government of Liberia (GOL) will tomorrow hold a Memorial Service for the late General SurajAlao Abdurrahman, former Commanding Officer In Charge (COIC) of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).
The late General Abdurrahman who was a pillar in the formation of the new AFL following Liberia’s civil war, died on 28th January 2015 and no Memorial Service could have been held at the time because the Liberian nation was battling the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
The Nigerian General served the Armed Forces of Liberia from June 2007 to February 2014 at which time he was instrumental in the formation of a new disciplined AFL which subsequently produced a youth Chief of Staff, Brigadier General Daniel D. Ziankah.
Accordingly, the GOL as a sign of appreciation and respect to the late General Abdurrahman for the work he did for the security sector of the country has invited his family from Nigeria to attend the Memorial Service where several institutions are expected to pay tribute to the fallen African soldier.
It is expected that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the head of an array of top government officials including Legislators, the top brass of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and other non-governmental organizations will be in attendance at tomorrow’s Memorial Service at the Monrovia City Hall.
