The newly appointed Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister for Administration, Edward M. Eesiah, has assured employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that his administration will work collaboratively with them to achieve the Ministry’s agenda aimed at enhancing government’s foreign policy thrust.
Deputy Minister Eesiah, who replaces Dr. Wede Elliott Brownell as Deputy Minister for Administration, stated that if the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to achieve its desired objectives, there must be a smooth working relationship among employees on one hand and the administration and workforce on the other hand.
According to a Foreign Affairs Ministry release, the new Deputy Minister gave the assurance on Tuesday, October 11, when he was being formally introduced to the staff by Foreign Affairs Minister Marjon V. Kamara during a general staff meeting.
Deputy Minister Eesiah used the occasion to extend gratitude to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for his preferment and assured her that he will deliver to her expectation.
For her part, Minister Kamara, after introducing Deputy Minister Eesiah, urged her staff to cooperate with and support Deputy Minister Eesiah to achieve the objectives of the Ministry.
Minister Kamara also noted among other things that the appointment of Mr. Eesiah to the current position is based on his numerous experiences within the public sector, including his immediate past position at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP), where he served as Deputy Minister for Administration.
