As Government works to achieve its goals over the remaining years of the administration, there is need for strategic changes in the administration.

In doing so, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has given due recognition and thanks to many who have been with and stood by the Government but who now require new challenges worthy of their skills. This means opportunity for others who would bring more dynamism and urgency to Government’s determination for more timely and effective implementation of these programs.
