‘Garner Trust In Leadership,’ Bowier Tells ULSA

By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, June 23 (LINA) - Former Information Minister Emmanuel Bowier has challenged the leadership of the University of Liberia Staff Association (ULSA) to strive to win the trust of the people they lead.

Minister Bowier pointed out that trust should be the hallmark in building and developing the association, which plays a pivotal role in the functioning and operation of the University in molding the country’s human resources.

The former Information Minister proffered the challenge Thursday in his keynote address at the induction of the newly-elected officers of ULSA held on the main campus of the University on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

He explained that leadership requires trust to lead the people, noting that if the people have no trust in their leaders, it will be difficult to support any initiative by the leadership to move the association or country forward.

He pointed out that leaders are servants and not masters of the people, noting that leaders should not abuse the power given them by the people as there is a future after leadership.

Bowier emphasized that every member is part of the leadership structure and should strive to meet the objective and aspiration of the association, and not leave these to only the elected officials, stressing that the staff are major players in transforming the state university.

In his induction statement, ULSA president Gabriel P. Vanjah said his leadership will hold a dialogue with the university administration to provide the necessary equipment for staff to perform their duties efficiently.

Those inducted were Gabriel P. Vanjah, President; Morris O. Gee, Vice President; Yamenah K. Jalloh, Secretary General; Stephen F. Togba, Assistant Secretary; Janet K. Farngalo, Financial Secretary; Mary Z. Zordyu, Treasurer and Isaac Z. Zawu, Chaplain.
