Six Senior Gov’t Officials Get Commissioned

MONROVIA, December 21 (LINA) - Six senior government officials recently confirmed by the Liberian Senate have been commissioned by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The Liberian leader also recognized their efforts as people who have served the Government and people of Liberia so well, that deserved continuous recognitions and elevations.

“We are here to recognize those who have served our country and continue to do so. They have demonstrated patriotism, loyalty and competence to carry out the roles they are in and continue to perform,” President Sirleaf said.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the remarks on Tuesday, December 20, in the C. Cecil Dennis Auditorium of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, when she commissioned the six newly-confirmed senior government officials.

Speaking on behalf of those commissioned, Minister of State for Presidential Affairs Grisgby said he and his colleagues were gratified by their appointments to serve the Liberian people through their contributions in writing the history of the leadership of President Sirleaf for the period of her tenure.

Minister Grigsby recalled that in most instances, those serving in this government, especially for those who work closely with the Liberian leader,  it is incumbent upon them to muster the courage during long working hours to adjust to the President’s work habit.

He stressed: “These are some of the signs of a disciplined and true leader.”

He assured the Liberian leader that he and his colleagues would do everything to ensure that such trend continues.

For her part, Ambassador Wreh commended the Liberian leader for their preferment and the opportunity afforded them to serve their country.
