The Director General of the National fisheries and Aquaculture Authority, (NaFAA) Emma M. Glassco is calling on Liberians to give President Weah a second Mandate as president of Liberia come October 10, 2023.
Speaking over the weekend, when she received the ‘Best Public Servant Award’ from the Center for the Exchange of Intellectual Opinions (CEIO) a Liberian civil society group, Madam Glassco acknowledged that president Weah has over the years placed confidence in young Liberian professionals, appointing them in key positions of trust.
The NaFAA DG moreover sated that several of those young Liberian professionals are performing above expectations thus leading to the attraction of international funding to their respective sectors, as well as impacting the citizens under the leadership of President George Weah.
She emphasized that the overall performances of those young professional Liberians in the CDC led government have inspired and set the standard for other Liberians who are determined to step up to the stage and make meaningful contributions to the development of Liberia.
At the same time, the Executive Chairman and the Secretary General of CEIO collectively declared that Madam Glassco has over the last five years demonstrated excellence in the discharge of her duties thus attracting huge international attention to the Liberian Fisheries sector.
SG Dash Elliot noted that Madam Glassco has for the past years has ‘sustainably managed fisheries resources and not squandering’ them, stating that her current work output can hugely attest to the fact that she has managed the sector professionally.
“DG Glassco is sustainably managing the Liberian fisheries resources and not squandering as seen from her work output locally and internationally. She and her team have over the years performed magnificently to the contrary of their critics who previously claimed that they were inexperience and were appointed to squandered government fisheries resources.
He said Liberia’s international partners can attested to the fact that Madam Glassco is currently delivering as Director General of the fisheries sector which was dead over the few years due to the lack of a vision bearer in the name of Emma M. Glassco.
At the same time Elliot noted that CEIO’s award is extremely prestigious and enviable as such they do not rush to in giving individual awards without proper vetting of such individual.
