The Secretary General of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA) has challenged officials of the National AIDS Commission ‘Staff Welfare Association’ (NACSWA) to be new breed of leaders that will do the ground breaking things by setting the right focus and find their proper voices among the citizenry.

He further cautioned the NAC officials to be peace-setter, a goal getter and above all, to love institution organization saying “focus on doing things differently. Pay attention to processes, that is, you must pay attention to little details; and be attentive and attendant to your respective tasks.”
According to him, they are assuming leadership of the organization at a time when there is so much bickering, uncertainty about which direction the society is muting towards and where there is an uneasiness and heighten suspicion hovering, call it cautious optimism.
“There is also a narrative of mishaps and inconsistencies with the governance architecture. People are peddling with the discourse of squarely placing the blame of the crunching impact of the economic meltdown on the status quo or the government. This tendency is natural. I suggest we do some soul searching.”
