Liberia Elected West Africa VP Of ACGN   

MONROVIA, Feb 10 (LINA) -Liberia has been elected one of three regional vice presidents of the Africa Cabinet Government Network (ACGN).

The election took place at the Inaugural meeting of the ACGN held last Friday, February 7, in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

In a communiqué issued at the close of its Roundtable Workshop held February 3-7, the Council of African Cabinet Secretaries, the ACGN’s governing body, unanimously elected Dr. Momo Rogers, Director-General of the Liberian Cabinet, to serve for the next two years as Vice President for the West Africa region. 

Other officers elected were Dr. Ernest Surrur, Secretary to the Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service of Sierra Leone, as President; Mr. Abdon Agaw Jok Nhial, Secretary General of the Government of South Sudan, as Vice President for the East Africa region; and Dr. Roland Msiska, Secretary to the Cabinet of Zambia, as Vice President for the Southern Africa region.

The elected officers automatically became members of the Executive Committee of the Network, authorized by the Council, to lead the Network and bring together those who have the responsibility of supporting and managing the collective Cabinet decision-making of their respective jurisdictions.

The Committee is further mandated to explore practical ways to improve Cabinet procedures and build capacity within Cabinet Secretariats to support line Ministries.

The Committee also has the responsibility of recommending to the Council the appointment of an Executive Director to run the Network’s Secretariat, and setting up of a Technical Committee comprised of senior staff of the Secretariats of member countries.

During the Roundtable Workshop, the Director-General of the Liberian Cabinet, Dr. Rogers, chaired the second-day sessions, made two presentations, and served on a high-level panel on the “Role of the Cabinet Secretary.”

Speaking about what Liberia stands to gain from the Network; Dr. Rogers noted that besides sharing best practices with his colleagues, two Liberian college graduates have already been employed by the Network to work in his office.

He said an international senior advisor from Adam Smith International would be traveling with him to Liberia to begin training the new staff and helping to improve the Cabinet system and processes of Liberia. 

The new staff will later attend two international workshops on Cabinet processes and procedures.

According to Dr. Rogers, the Secretary to the Cabinet of Ghana has accepted to host the next Roundtable Workshop in Accra before the end of the year.
