Out-going UNDP official Dcentralization Policy Crucial

MONROVIA, June 21 (LINA) - Outgoing Resident Representative of the U.N. Development Program (UNDP) Antonio Vigilante has underscored the importance of government’s decentralization policy.

Mr. Vigilante urged the Ministry of Internal Affairs to continue efforts aimed at capturing citizens’ attention by giving them access to services.

According to a UNDP press release issued here Tuesday, he made the comments recently at a dinner tendered in his honor at the end of his tour of duty in Liberia.

During the event held by UNDP management and staff, Mr. Vigilante expressed gratitude to the Government of Liberia and its partners for their contributions towards development.

He thanked all Liberians for their contributions during his three year tenure of service that included the critical period of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

“I have done my part. I want to thank everyone because without the collaboration of Liberians, we couldn’t have been here. It’s my hope that Liberia will continue to grow in peace and strength with several development programs on her shoulders,” he declared.

Mr. Vigilante hoped that the Government of Liberia will remain on the path of growth and development.

‘With resilience, the country will be better and we need to achieve women’s empowerment, government reform transformation, and job creation, among other issues,” he added.

The program was attended by an array of government officials, UN partners, members of the Diplomatic Corps, staff of UNDP, friends and many well-wishers.

In remarks, several guests spoke highly about the good work of Mr. Vigilante, especially his contributions to the fight against Ebola in the country.

For his part, UNDP Country Director Kamil Kamaluddeen lauded the many efforts and contributions of the UNDP Resident Representative, describing him as “a person who is development-oriented.’
