President Sirleaf who was elated in receiving Dr. Olakunle to her country expressed her excitement over his ‎charity projects towards the less privileged. “We appreciate your visit and your intention to extend your agricultural empowerment project to Liberia. Nigeria over the years has displayed big brotherly love to us especially during the civil war where some Nigerian military died to save our nation.”

The warm reception at the Presidential Villa with the Ministers followed with a Peace Festival match around the city. The colorful event continued to the stadium where Dr. Olakunle was one of the key note speakers alongside the Vice President, Joseph Boakai, speaking on the theme;  ‘Let’s Maintain The Peace – Promoting Nonviolent Elections.” The event ‎had several performances including a spectacle from ‘Liberia little’s flavor’, the popular blind boy, Semah G. Weifur.

As part of the juice, the Traditional Council of Chiefs in the country conferred Dr. Olakunle with a chieftaincy title‎ at Kamara community with the allocation of 100 hectares of land for his agricultural empowerment project. Responding to the gesture, Dr. Olakunle said he was humbled to be recognized and honored in a faraway African country, also assuring the good people of Liberia of his commitment to supporting their activities through his foundation and empowerment programmes.

‎The 4-day visit was climaxed with ‎a visit to the ‘Centre for the Blind’ where the foundation shared medical eye glasses and other financial donations. He also took time out to put in an appearance at the Lion’s Club event as a lifetime achievement member where he distributed more eyes glasses and other valuables.  ‎
