Liberia To Observe June 23 As Nat’l Public Service Day

MONROVIA, June 19 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has by Proclamation declared Tuesday, June 23, as "National Public Service Day", to be observed throughout the Republic as a Working Holiday.

The Proclamation calls upon Government Ministries, Agencies and International Organizations concerned to join the Civil Service Agency (CSA) in executing appropriate programs befitting the occasion.

According to Foreign Ministry release, the purpose of the celebration is to create a sense of identity and accelerate the level of awareness of the rapid reform of the Public Service and give appreciation and recognition to Public Servants for their outstanding services.

The Proclamation states that Liberia will join member states of the African Union to celebrate "Africa Public Service Day", under the continental theme: "The Role of Public Service in Women Empowerment, Innovation and Accessible Service Delivery," and the national theme: "Women Empowerment: The Fulcrum to Nation Building."

Since the enactment of the Act creating the CSA, it has imparted its purpose nationally and established relations with continental bodies, the Proclamation declared.

The Proclamation is in consonance with the Legislative Act approved on May 11, 1972 by the Forty-fifth Legislature which repealed the Public Employment Law to create the CSA.

The African Union at its Sixth Conference of African Ministers of Public Service meeting held in Nairobi, Kenya, adopted a Resolution declaring June 23 of each year as ‘African Public Service Day’ to take stock of gains and reflect on challenges of the services provided.
