Grupee Wants Biometric System Decentralized Nationwide

By Winnie Dixon/LINA

MONROVIA, December 9 (LINA) - Nimba County Senator Thomas Grupee has called for the decentralization of the bio-metric system nationwide to avoid further interruption in the education sector.

The system which is currently being used in the Finance and Development Planning Ministry, the Education and Foreign Ministries and the Civil Service Agency, was introduced in 2009, according the Liberia News Agency.

In an interview with reporters Tuesday, Grupee indicated that bringing thousands of workers from their assigned posts in the counties to Monrovia simply to take identification cards is uneconomical and interrupts the services of civil servants.

According to him, it is rather better to have the system introduced in all counties for salaries and other paramount issues, instead of expecting employees to come to Monrovia for those services.

Grupee made reference to teachers who, he explained, have to abandon the classrooms to come to Monrovia for salaries and identification cards.

He added that to and fro movement for the processing of bio-metric cards also poses hardship on civil servants because the government has no package for transporting and accommodating employees in Monrovia, thereby causing most of them to become stranded.
