The relationship is to ensure the capital cities of the two West African nations continue to compete with others on the continent and other places by making them safe, green and clean at all times.

In ensuring the urgency of the relationship as part of his international outreach, Mayor Jefferson Koijee over the weekend met the Mayor of Accra, Ghana Adjei Sowah M. to discuss, among other things, development issues and sister-city relationship.

The two mayors are contemplating on organizing an Association of West African City Mayors in order to have a West African voice with one platform among African Mayors.

During the meeting, the Mayor of Accra expressed delight for meeting a youthful Mayor like Koijee and appreciated President George Weah for appointing such a youthful and charismatic young Mayor and scores of young people in government.

“You are a great young man with a great prospect, I have been following your activities over the years as a political party youth leader and now the Mayor of the City of Monrovia,” Mayor Sowah said.

According to the Accra’s Mayor, this is a clear opportunity for young people on the African continent to take charge of the leadership of their respective countries.

“You are very passionate about your country,” he added.

Mayor Sowah expressed that it was a great honor to receive Mayor Koijee and promised to work with him in promoting sister-city relationship between Accra and Monrovia.

For his part, Mayor Koijee commended the Accra Mayor for the warm welcome and appreciated him for the hard work in making Accra one of the beautiful cities in Africa; a feat he believes Monrovia can achieve with such a great relationship.

“With just a short notice you accepted to meet me; I must say that I appreciate this with great admiration. I am optimistic that with such relationship with Accra, we can achieve our desire in making Monrovia Clean, Green and safe,” Mayor Koijee said.

He noted that his quest to make Monrovia one of the cleanest cities in Africa is a dream that he can’t achieve without modeling ideas from Accra, Kigali and others cities in Africa.

Accra is among the best cities in Africa to live with excellent landscaping, good roads, systematic waste management, clean beaches, organized zoning, modern shopping malls and busing economy. It also has a flourishing real estate sector that attracts investors from all over Africa and the world.
