Monrovia, February 29 (LINA) – The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex J. Tyler, has stressed the need for Liberians to follow global trends to build strong institutions with strong performance quotas.
« Others may call it best accepted global practices; but I wish to modify it to that of best accepted result-oriented methodologies and practices; taking into consideration our own peculiar circumstances with emphasis on team spirit, hard work, dedication and competence, » he added.
Speaker Tyler made the statement at the weekend at the closing program of the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) held in the University of Liberia auditorium.
He observed that over the years, Liberians have heavily relied on strong leaders and have built their lives around personalities.
He said while this concept has not totally changed in many public and private institutions, his assessment is that there is a gradual paradigm shift from weak institutions to the building of strong institutions with strong performance quotas.
« There is no one in this hall that denies that transformation is taking place; though we have not yet arrived, but understandably, we are getting there, and the Liberia Institute for Public Administration is taking the lead to get us there, » he noted.
