Pres. Sirleaf Accepts Education Min-designate’s Withdrawal Request

MONROVIA, December 5 (LINA)-President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has accepted the request of Dr. Elizabeth Davis-Russell to withdraw her nomination for the position of Minister of Education.

In a special address to the Nation on Sunday, November 16, the Liberian President nominated Dr. Davis-Russell as Minister of Education-designate pending confirmation by the Liberian Senate.

According to an Executive Mansion release, in her letter to the Liberian leader dated Tuesday, December 2, 2014, Dr. Davis-Russell cited her United States of America citizenship as an obstacle to her ability to serve effectively in the position.

She expressed concern that her abrupt departure from the William V.S. Tubman University without a planned succession has already invoked a process that could undermine the quality of instruction and the reputation that she has engendered at Tubman University over the last
two years.

Dr. Davis-Russell was appointed President of the William V.S. Tubman College of Technology (now William V.S. Tubman University) in October 2007. She assumed leadership of the institution in July 2008.

Meanwhile, Dr. Davis-Russell has consented to serve as Chair of the Education Advisory Council.
