(elbcradio.com/June 3, 2015)-The Internal Affairs Ministry has begun the Government’s service decentralization process in other parts of Liberia.

The process began Monday, June 1, 2015 with a week-long training workshop for the Grand Bassa County Service Center’s staffers.

The training is aimed at developing the County Service Center’s staffers to enable them adequately provide government services to citizens of the various counties. Developing the County Service Center’s staffers will reduce the huge influx of people to Monrovia for public service.

Speaking at the workshop’s opening, Deputy Internal Affairs Minister, Teah Nagbe, said the exercise is an indication that the Liberian Government remains committed to fulfilling promises to the people.

The initiative is under the Liberia Decentralization Support Program, proposed by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, in her 2006 inaugural speech.

It is also aimed at bringing government closer to the people, and making Monrovia to seize from being the only center of power and source of development policy-making.
