LRA Official Admonishes LIPA Graduates To Uphold Integrity
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, June 21(LINA) – The Commissioner General of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), Elfrieda Stewart Tamba, has urged graduates of the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) to build and maintain a reputation of high integrity.

Integrity, she noted, is absolutely essential, whether working in the public or private sector.

Commissioner Tamba made the call in her keynote address at the graduation of the First Cycle of LIPA Class of 2016 held at the weekend in the auditorium of the University of Liberia in Monrovia.

The 299 graduates were drilled in nine professional disciplines, for which some received certificates of achievement, while others obtained diplomas in Human Resource Management, Banking and Finance, Human Resource Performance Management as well as Internal Audit and Control.

Other courses included Monitoring and Evaluation, Procurement, Project Planning, Public Policy Management.

“Your actions and the work you do affects not only yourself but also your family, your friends and the entire country,” Tamba cautioned.

“I urge you to adopt the same attitude in your personal life and in your professional duties,” she pleaded.

She also challenged the graduates to work towards eradicating corruption, rather than giving it chance to grow as doing so will destroy the country.

The LRA official said working in public administration is challenging, noting, “It is, however, critical that all, whether in the private of public sector, remain productive citizens, taking responsibility over the collective future and with perseverance strive to build Liberia.”
