MONROVIA – Fulanis in Liberia are seeking legislation that will make the tribe legitimately recognized as one of the official tribes in Liberia.

The group said its contributions to national development and politics, including the economy as compared to other tribes, are outstanding and therefore should warrant full recognition.

The Fulanis under the banner “Falanis Group of Liberia” have therefore submitted a bill to the Legislature to push that agenda.

According to the group, due to their prolonged stay in Liberia, they have been involved with many development initiatives in the country.
