"A man with a mission"
Monrovia: 10 August 2008
LATEST PRESS STATEMENT
In 2005 DAMATE was years ahead of Barack Obama with his vision of CHANGE. This is what DAMATE wrote then:
"The time has come for a BIG change. A time for peace, freedom, democracy, stability,
mutual respect, prosperity, and reconciliation.
Time to reject repression and the detour towards fear and greed. Time to look out upon the world for
friends, not enemies. Time for those who have much to help those who have little. Time to show the
world that we wish to be their partner in peace. Most of all, it is time for Liberia to become a
land where dreams come true because the government is on the side of its people".
Now, 2008, DAMATE is calling all Liberians abroad:
COME BACK HOME!
...to build up competences, capabilities, education and experience while at the same time using improved
skills and expertise to assist others in transforming their lives through strategic priorities and results.
Sekou Damate Conneh, Jr.
As Chairman of Liberia United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD) DAMATE smoothened the path for the Transitional
Government of Liberia to open the doors for the Free and Democratic elections on October 11th 2005.
In tough times DAMATE proved to be the strongest. His campaign changed the Liberian political spectrum with the objective to create
a strong, peaceful, prosperous and secure nation. With the people's support Liberia's economy will grow again and jobs created,
bringing equal opportunity and justice to all our people. DAMATE will bring development to the people of Liberia;
promote peace and reconciliation as a way forward to improve the livelihood of citizens to become self reliance and self sufficiency,
making Liberia habitable for the common good of mankind.
