The Commissioner of the United Nations Police (UNPOL), Gregory Hinds, has pledged UNPOL’s commitment to further professionalize the Bureau of Immigration and Nationalization (BIN)in post-war Liberia.
Commissioner Hinds explained that it is critical for the BIN to take stock of its operation over the years and then determine to strengthen the professionalism of the Bureau as the U.N. Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) transition.
The UNPOL Commissioner made the remarksat the weekend at the end of a two-day Self-Assessment Retreat for the BIN held in Bentol, Bensonville City outside Monrovia.
Meanwhile, Deputy Justice Minister for Administration, Wheatonia Dixon Barnes, assured BIN officers that government will address their recommendations step-by-step as the National Budget improves in the coming fiscal year.
Minister Barnes stated that the Liberian economy has dropped as the result of the health crisis currently confronting the nation, but government is striving to strengthen the economy.
For his part, BIN Commissioner Lemuel Reeves emphasized that Liberians should take national ownership to develop the country and its people.
Commissioner Reeves stressed that Liberians should do away with the dependency attitude in order for Liberia to move forward, noting that the development of Liberia will depend on Liberians and not others
