President George Manneh Weah has performed the commissioning ceremony of Foreign Minister Gbehzohngar Findley, Finance and Development Planning Minister, Samuel Tweah, Jr. and the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Nathaniel McGill. The ceremony took place on Thursday, February 8, 2018 in the Cabinet Room of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
According to an Executive Mansion release, the commissioning followed confirmation by the Honorable Liberian Senate.
Speaking during the occasion, the Liberian leader saluted the commissioned officials for their roles and called on them to perform their duties with a sense of commitment in a bid to prove their critics wrong.
President Weah said when they were nominated to their entrusted positions, some Liberians described them as incompetent and unfit for the tasks they were nominated to carry out. He said other Liberians reckoned they are qualified and capable to fulfill the assigned tasks. President Weah then challenged them to work harder to prove their detractors wrong or risk proving their critics right.
Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Foreign Minister Gbehzohngar Findley registered deep appreciation to President Weah for the confidence reposed in them to serve their country and assured the Liberian leader that they will not let him down.
Minister Findley then assured President Weah of their determination and unwavering devotion to the administration’s pro-poor agenda that seeks to foster policies that would promote the well-being of ordinary Liberians.
The event was attended by senior Liberian government officials; notably Speaker Bhofal Chambers, Pro-Tempore Albert Chie and Dr. Francis Kateh, Liberia Chief Medical Officer and a host of well-wishers.
