Senator Taylor Urges Political Will To Transform Public Sector

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, June 24 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has urged Liberians to muster the political will to transform the public sector with effective and efficient civil servants in order to move the country forward.  

Senator Taylor said Liberia must now be able to adjust its mode of operations in a way that is not only efficient and productive, but also meet international standards.

She made the call Monday at a program marking the celebration of African Public Service Day held the Paynesville City Hall under the Continental theme “African Charter on Value and Principle of Public Service and Administration: A tool for enhancing governance in the open government era”.

The day was celebrated under the national theme: “Domesticating the African Charter of the public service to enhance Continental Standard”.

Senator Taylor indicated that a more focused, efficient and productive public service should be the key element in government’s plan for efficiency, productivity and transparency within the public sector.    

She stressed the need for the public sector to become a properly functioning system which would create values and focus on national goals so that at the end the government and the public sector are judged by results.

Senator Taylor pointed out that political will should be able to set performance objectives of various Government ministries and agencies which is not only enough but also reinforces several factors, if the national goals must be achieved.

She stressed the need for strong government and political support at all levels, and sound institutional and governance systems which are merit based.
