Bassa Supt Raps on Deconcentration Process

By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, March 1(LINA) – Grand Bassa County Superintendent Etweda A. Cooper has said future government payments and issuance of documents will not be done only in Monrovia but in the counties under the Deconcentration Policy.

Madam Cooper, who is also the chair of the Superintendents Council of Liberia, the body responsible to regulate the process, named the issuance of driver licenses and vehicle plates, vehicle registration, issuance of birth and death certificates as among functions that will be done in the counties.

She made the comments in the conference room of the Administration Building in Buchanan over the weekend at a one-day stakeholders meeting on the Deconcentration Implementation Process.

Cooper stressed the need for line ministries and agency to know their functions during this period, adding: “The Deconcentration and its Implementation is an important development scheme by the government.”

She disclosed that a proclamation about the services that will be carried out in the counties will be issued as most of them will begin in late April or early May.

She called on line ministries and agencies to coordinate with the superintendents to ensure the services are delivered on time and in a professional way.

Supt. Cooper also called on line ministries to draw-up county-based work plans to enable the Council to begin its five-year “County Development Agenda”  and develop a local budget, adding: “Superintendents have more authority now than before.”

Cooper noted under this policy all non-governmental organizations operating in the counties are to register and will be monitored to feel their impact in the counties, stressing, “There will be no business as usual.”
