Pres. Sirleaf Commissions Senior AFL Officers 

MOROVIA, December 12 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirelaf has commissioned three senior officers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), recognizing their exemplary roles in professionally serving and defending the country.

She described their performance as satisfactory since taking over from Nigerian Major General Suraj Alao Abdurrahman who served the nation as Chief of Staff of the AFL during its restructuring process.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the commissioning ceremony took place in the C. Cecil Dennis Auditorium on Friday in Monrovia and was presided over by President Sirleaf, the Commander-In-Chief of the AFL. 

She commissioned and promoted Daniel Dee Ziankahn, Chief of Staff of the AFL to the rank of Major/General; Prince C. Johnson, III, as Deputy Chief of Staff with the rank of Brig/General and Davidson Forleh as Commander of the 23rd Infantry Brigade with the rank of Colonel.

President Sirleaf noted that since assuming leadership roles of the AFL, Major/General Ziankahn and his fellow Liberian officers have diligently and professionally served the nation. 

She commended Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai for his role in professionally exercising leadership over the AFL which has led to the demonstration of loyalty, commitment and professionalism by the Liberian High Command headed by Major General Ziankahn and his colleagues.

Speaking on behalf of the newly-commissioned AFL officers, Major/General Ziankahn recalled the transfer of leadership to the Liberian officers about three years ago, when he, Brig/General Prince C. Johnson and the late Eric Dennis were commissioned by President Sirleaf, cautioning them not to let the country down. 

He assured President Sirleaf that they remain committed to the leadership of the country and the people of Liberia and pledged to do everything possible to serve and protect the state. 

During the ceremony, a moment of silence was observed in remembrance of the late Major General Abdurrahman and the late Col. Eric Dennis.
