Latest News » LIPA, NSG CERTIFICATE 23 CIVIL SERVANTS

(Monrovia, Liberia): The Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), in partnership with the National School of Government of South Africa and the African Development Institute's Network (AMDIN) with support from the European Union has certificated twenty three civil servants in the area of better Service Delivery in Public Sector.

The program, which took place at the Monrovia City Hall in Sinkor on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, was the climax of training for some senior and middle levers managers from across 19 government ministries, agencies and commissions including the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA).

The ceremony was attended by several dignitaries including the Ambassador of ECOWAS, representative of the UNDP, South African Embassy, MOE, GC, MIA and well wishers among others,

The participants were awarded the certificates following an intensive two weeks training in service delivery within the Public Sector which held at the Millennium Guest House and the John F. Kennedy Hospital in Monrovia from August 26-September 6, 2019.

The training was intended to equip the participants with the tools (theory) and perspective they will need as public service managers and decision makers to unblock service delivery challenges; making them agents of change for excellence in service delivery in their own work environment and to expose them directly to the real world challenges of service delivery.

Giving an overview of the training, the Coordinator of Project Kaedu Atty. Melvin Chineh said, in 2017 he and five other colleagues from across West Africa were given the opportunity to undergo similar training in South Africa. 

Atty. Chineh furthers that following the training they were tasked to go back to their respective countries to replicate what they had learned.

“With this, everything was finalized to kick start the project in Liberia from August 26-30, and the first phase of the training under the Kaedu Africa Project was held at the Millennium Guest House in Congo Town, where participants were given the tools, knowledge and skills to identify problems and implement change in public service delivery, Atty. Chineh explained.

He stated that the second phase of the training which took participants to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center where they applied the tools and skills acquired from week one trying to understand the processes at the JFK and to identify some of the problems being faced by Administrators of the hospital so as to recommend solutions for effective service delivery.

Serving as Guest Speaker at the Certification Ceremony, ECOWAS Ambassador to Liberia His Excellency Babatunde O. Ajisomo said, Public Servants are very important in the society especially those graduating from the first Project Kaedu Training Program, adding that it is their sole responsibility to provide efficiency and professionalism at their various work places. Ambassador Ajisomo named corruption, deception and the inability for Public Servants to practice what they acquired in their discipline as problems facing Africa’s development.

He lauded the Management of LIPA and challenged the graduates to be agents of total transformation and the proper ambassadors of change.

For his part, the Director General of LIPA Professor Alex Yonly said, the Project Kaedu in the South African language means challenge, adding that the Kaedu experience is meant to break the stereotype and remove obstructions in service delivery.

He lauded the Management and staff of JFK for their partnership with LIPA, and cautioned the participants to apply methods that will bring change and growth in their respective areas of duty.
