Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Operations Emmet Reeves, warns local officials here to respect their superior, while in the discharge of their duties, stressing, “The boss is always the boss.”
Speaking Wednesday, 23 May at the induction of two local officials for Montserrado County in Bentol City Hall outside Monrovia, he calls for coordination and improved working relations between them and county superintendent Florence F. Brandy in galvanizing relevant tools to implement government’s development agenda.
Those inducted include Montserrado County Inspector, Solomon Miller and Bentol City Mayor, Martha K. Woheal, respectively. He admonishes inhabitants of the county to closely work with their officials if development they aspire for is to be realized.
The deputy MIA boss discloses that he was gratified to note that the two inducted officials have a long working relationship with Superintendent Brandy, so why wouldn’t the county develop under such a crack team.
He warns, “Everything that you say and do while discharging your functions must represent the people because they are the forerunners of government development drive.”
Also speaking, Montserrado County Superintendent Brandy vows to intensely lobby with the county’s lawmakers and the executive to ensure the inductees are given a vehicle each and materials to execute President George Manneh Weah’s pro-poor agenda.
She assures the two officials of her readiness to continue the working ties that exist between them, adding that she would guide them in their functions in making sure the county achieves its development goals.
She recalls serving as Superintendent for Montserrado County for five years prior to her appointed by President George M. Weah based on the confidence the President has in her ability to not only lead, but develop the county.
In separate remarks, County Inspector Solomon Miller expresses his preparedness to closely work Superintendent Brandy in pushing government’s development agenda forward; while City Mayor Martha K. Woheal promises to justify the confidence reposed in her by President Weah.
The ceremony was graced by Representatives Richard Y. Holder and Lawrence Morris, officials and members of the Governor Council of Liberia (GCL) among others. By Emmanuel Mondaye–Editing by Jonathan Browne
