Alier made this remarks during a reception organized and conducted by the Jonglei state government in Bor on Friday.

The former Vice-President, who was visiting his hometown after more than 30 years, expressed delight having witnessed both the independence and post-independence of the young nation.

He urged the people of South Sudan to embrace peace, love and unity.
“Unity and love are essential for the people and government in South Sudan,” said Alier.

He added, They are the basis [of development], we got independence, I never knew it would come when I am alive, I want [you] people [to] hold your hands together, I want love among you”.

The former Vice-President said he was deeply concerned that people were lacking basic needs like food in the country, urging those who are in a position to assist to unconditionally help others.

The spirit of sharing little resources will help those in need, he stressed.
“If you find someone who has not eaten for two to three days, and you have something, give him”, added.

He said the warn reception given renewed him and raised his moral.

Born in 1933, Alier is a South Sudanese politician who served as the Vice President for Southern Sudan from 1971 to 1982, a year before Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) came into effect.

The veteran politician was also President of the High Executive Council of Southern Sudan’s autonomous region from 1972 to 1978.

    Mr Alier Akuai is the sources of all messes and tribal politics in South Sudan. He had fabricated tribal division known as "Kokora " which led to division of South Sudan into 3 regions namely : Upper Nile,Bahr el Ghazal and Equatoria regions. Mr Alier made Juba into Dinka Bor cattle camp. More, he led Dinka tribe to dominated all institutions and security.Bad luck for RSS to have him and his likes

    You still have uncompleted assignment or completed assignment without report made known to public. Omar el Bashir appointed you in 2005 to tell South Sudanese what happened to Museveni’s Chopper (Helicopter) that killed Dr. John Garang de Mabior. What is your final report saying about the cause of Helicopter crush? We have been waiting serious your deseparately needed report!! C’on

      Guys like Akouny, Eastern, and Fair man are Dinkas hatred. People like you will never accept great things from Dinka leaders or communities. We, the Dinkas people don’t care about your opinion anymore. Just run your mouths, eat, and sleep and shut up. You are nothing than traitors or enemies of the South Sudan. Why would you hate a man who preach peace, love, and unity?

    Abel Alier the architect of born-to-rule that is responsible for the current disunity and hatrate among South Sudanese cannot be the one to advocate for love and unity; the old man is a wolf in sheep skin!!!!

You enemies, you enjoy sucking of blood of people will one day account for deadly crimes you have committed. The people of South Sudan are suffering because you made them suffer. As you started the war, you must pay for it.
