MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Media Alliance for Democratic Governance (MADE) is urging President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to extend her latest model of appointment to all public functionaries under the Executive Branch of government.

According to the National Coordinator of MADE, Joseph Charlie, the replacement of Police Director, Chris Massaquoi, by his Deputy, Col. Gregory Coleman, among others, is a prudent decision that enhances internal staff development and institutional growth.

The media advocacy group said President Sirleaf’s move to look within public institutions to appointment personnel to replace their bosses is a rational administrative action.

Mr. Charlie said such decisions does not only promote the ascendency principle, but it does help get rid of loss time new appointees take to understand and implement their functional duties.

The Media Executive is also appealing to the Liberian Leader to use her tolerable democratic posture to look within government ministries and agencies and scout competent civil servants, through their Human Resource Offices, for appointments to fill vacancies in such entities.

He described as a waste of public resources for staffs of government ministries and agencies to acquire professional training and degrees on government scholarship only to be restrained in one position without affording them the opportunity to excel.
