Red Cross Gets New Leadership

MONROVIA, December 12 (LINA) -The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) has a new leadership to steer its affairs for the next four years.

According to a release issued on Monday, the elections were conducted for the first time by the National Election Commission (NEC) at the just-ended General Assembly, the highest decision-making body of the LNRCS.

Those elected are Mr. Jerome J.N. Clarke, National President; Mrs. Florence Napay, first Vice President; D. Mongar Grigsby, 2nd Vice President; Joseph T. Nagbe, 3rd Vice President; Arthur Glikay, Treasurer and Zoway Zubah, Youth Representative.

In remarks, the president-elect Clarke said his leadership strive to ensure transparency and accountability at the humanitarian institution to “avert the ugly situation of the past.”

Although the past Board of Governance of the LNRCS was dissolved in March by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf based on corruption and integrity issues, the holding of the just-ended election of a new leadership is in full compliance with the LNRCS’s constitution which calls for a leadership election after every four years.

He said his leadership will also ensure that it redeems the public confidence of the humanitarian institution as well as its lost image in an effort to rebuild its credibility.

The Liberian National Red Cross partners attending the General Assembly earlier warned that they will not support or accept any situation of reverting to the past or an interim leadership.

For his part, Deputy Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah acknowledged the immense humanitarian services of the Liberian National Red Cross and said it must continue to grow better and stronger to deliver bigger services to the communities and improve the lives of the vulnerable people.

Inducting the officers, Election Commissioner Davidetta Browne Lassanah said the commission was pleased to have supported the process of free, fair and transparent leadership elections of the LNRCS, and hoped that the legitimacy of the new corps of officers will bring the needed results and benefits to the Liberian people.
