Bong County Superintendent Madam Esther Walker has been officially inducted into office to coordinate the affairs of the County in consultation with the ministry of internal Affairs.
Our Bong County correspondent says the induction ceremony brought together members of the Bong County Legislative Caucus and other government officials, some executives of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), members of the Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders of Liberia and citizens, among others.
Inducting Madam Walker into office, Liberia’s Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf challenged the new superintendent to professionally perform her duties free from political differences.
Minister Sirleaf assured the Bong County superintendent of his fullest support. Turning the gable of authority over to the new superintendent, former Bong County Superintendent Madam Selena Polson Mappy encouraged Mrs. Walker to work with those who will be willing to help in achieving her goals.
She extended commendation to former President Ellen Johnson – Sirleaf for affording her the opportunity to serve the post. Though there were rumors that Madam Mappy was not invited at the event, she however pledged her commitment in working with the new superintendent for the county’s growth and development.
For her part, Madam Esther Walker assured the People of the County her fullest cooperation as new superintendent, saying “My appointment is not because I want to enrich myself, but to start from where past superintendents stopped”.
She assures residents that Bong County will gradually transform in terms of development and even get better than other counties in Liberia.
According to her, the appointment made by President George Manneh Weah was not a mistake on grounds that she has the pedigree of transforming the county to a new day.
Meanwhile, Vice President Jewel Howard – Taylor has described Madam Walker’s appointment as a clear manifestation to the introduction of development. The VP says she is of the conviction that Madam Walker will discharge her responsibility in the best interest of the citizens.
“Madam Walker has worked with me for a very long time and she is capable of doing the job. But all you need to do is to support her because when she achieves, meaning Bong county has achieved,” Madam Taylor concluded.
