“Rep. Sloh Was an Astute Politician, Public Servant” Government Says


The Liberian Government has paid tribute to fallen Rep. Nagbe Sloh describing him as an astute politician and public servant who would be missed.

After nearly two months mourning for the passing of Sinoe County District #2 Representative J. Nagbe Sloh,  mourners gathered at the First Assembly of God Church on Buchanan Street to pay their final respect and bid him goodbye.

The President of Liberia, George Manneh Weah,  headed an array of government officials at the funeral a release said.

At the Saturday, August 22, 2020 funeral service, the government said It also reckoned that the deceased dedicated his private and public life to the betterment of the Republic, firmly making his views known on serious national issues.

It can also be recalled that earlier on August 19, 2020, the President  George Weah signed the Book of Condolence at the Capitol Building, extoling late Rep. Sloh as a dutiful and diligent character who immensely contributed to the well-being of the country and people.

“He was a statesman who will be missed,” the Liberian Chief Executive said, adding: “The short time I knew and interacted with him, Hon. Sloh proved to be an honorable man.”

President Weah recounted that the late Representative Sloh did his best for the well-being of the country and its people, not only as a lawmaker but also as a journalist during the country’s dark days.

The Chief Executive also remembered the lawmaker as someone who embodied the aspirations of his constituents in their quest for social and economic development.
