“My wife, First Lady Marie Clar Weah, and I, on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia, wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Brumskine family, particularly Estelle, his wife, and three children, Charlene, Charles Jr. and Walker,” a press release issued by the Executive Mansion quotes President Weah as saying.
The press release further quotes President Weah saying: “Indeed, our Nation is broken. The cruel hands of death have taken away a fine Liberian patriot, a man of peace, who preached Liberianism for far too long.”
The President says he I had the privilege to interact with the late Cllr. Brumskine on many occasions.
“Despite the lake of politics which consistently divided us, we both respected and admired each other. He, particularly as a big brother sharing Bassa affinity, wanted the best out of me; his many counsels and overtures I shall never forget,” the Liberian leader recalled.
According to President Weah, there is no gainsaying about the fact that Liberia has lost a great fighter, who would never settle down unless the right and legal thing was done, stressing that the fallen acclaimed Liberian lawyer put Liberia first and he made peace and ordered his political badge.
“Indeed, history will remember Cllr. Brumskine as a principled politician whose tenacity and wisdom as a lawyer and humanitarian saved this nation from many odd events.Liberia will miss this great hero and progressive of our time.My sympathies also go out to the leadership and membership of the Liberty Party, which he faithfully served and fought for,” President Weah uttered.
“May the Lord of Host give him a peaceful rest until the Resurrection Morning,” President Weah added.
Meanwhile, President Weahordered that the National Ensign was flown at half-mast on Thursday 8:am to 6pm.
