MONROVIA, September 17 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has commissioned Liberia’s Ambassadors to the United Kingdom and Ghana respectively in Monrovia.

According to an Executive Mansion release, those commissioned were Dr. S.  Mohammed Sheriff, Ambassador to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and Madam Genevieve A. Kennedy, Ambassador to the Republic of Ghana.

Performing the commissioning ceremony on Friday, President Sirleaf hoped that the commissioned officials will represent the country with a high level of professionalism and allegiance to improve the image of Liberia.

the Advisor to the President on Foreign Affairs, Ambassador George Wallace, government officials as well as family and friends of the commissioned diplomats.
