Monrovia – Three executives of the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA) are calling on the legislators to repeal the Alien and Nationality Law, specifically Section 22, which speaks of the ‘Loss of Citizenship.’

According to Mssrs. Alfred Sieh, ULAA Board Chair, Frank Carter, National Executive Vice President, ULAA, and Conrade Nyenkan, Executive Board Member, ULAA, the present law on the book is against diaspora Liberians, who because of some circumstances beyond their controls, made them take up citizenships of another nations.

It seems that the amended 1974 Alien and Nationality Law Section 22, which speaks of ‘Loss of Citizenship’ is what ULAA thinks is a problem for them and needs to be repealed.
