Gand Bassa Superintendent, Madam Etweda Cooper has resigned following months of stand-off between her office and the county’s legislative caucus over the applications of the county’s development fund.
Madam Cooper tendered her resignation to President Sirleaf on September 3, 2015, hoping that this will foster the spirit of unity among the residents of the county and thereby promote development which they all desire.
An Executive Mansion release Thursday said the president has accepted Madam Cooper’s resignation, while thanking her for services rendered her people under difficult circumstances as well as her commitment to continue to serve the country.
In her resignation letter, Madam Cooper indicated that her action was the best way forward for her home county in the current atmosphere of calumny, invective, intense acrimony, and deliberately circulated falsehoods that currently typify political and societal exchanges in the county.
She expressed thanks to President Sirleaf for the confidence reposed in her over the three years she served the county, and availed herself to serve this administration and people of Liberia when called upon.
