‘Stop Pledging Loyalty To Politicians For Gains’ - Gongloe
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) - Human rights lawyer Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe has admonished Liberians to stop pledging loyalty to politicians or their organizations for personal gains.

He observed that it is now becoming a tradition in Liberia for heads of organizations to pledge loyalty to political institutions for financial gains which, according to him, undermines the objectives of the organization.

In remarks during the induction of officers-elect of the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy Civil Servants Association (MLMECSA) recently, Gongloe admonished the leadership to be law-abiding and avoid acts that will make members of the association lose confidence in them.

Those inducted include Ballah D. Hubband, President; Linda Davis, Vice President; Thomas Eric Cox, General Secretary and Lawrence Y. Korwah, Assistant General Secretary.

Others are James T. Snowea, Financial Secretary; Alice B.Garblah, Treasurer; Linda Nyenaton, Chaplain and David Chea, Parliamentarian.

Gongloe advised the leadership to respect the membership to earn their respect, adding, “If you want your colleagues to respect you, you should be the first to respect them.”

He noted that respect is not something that one can demand, but that it can be earned based on mannerism.

Delivering the keynote address at the ceremony, former Information Minister Lawrence Bropleh, urged the leadership to avoid using the media in addressing their grievances with the administration or within the association.

According to him, constant dialogue with the ministry’s administration should be the best way to channel to their grievances.

In his inaugural address, Hubband appealed to the membership to rally around the
leadership in moving the association forward.
