"No Need To Panic ", CSA Boss Joekai Assures Civil Servants

By: Julius Konton

In the wake of mix views, fear and multiple reactions in the public about the ongoing process at the Civil Service Agency, The Director General of the Civil Service Agency Josiah Joekai has assured Civil Servants Nationwide that there is no need to panic as they are working on a number of measures to ensure the smooth employees status regularization process.

As part of that process, Mr. Joekai further announced the extension of the compliance process from ninety days to one hundred and twenty days which begun from April 2, 2024 to August 2, 2024 respectively.

The move he told reporters is to ensure that spending entities do the needful while the CSA will use the time frame to deploy the needed logistics and analysts in order to complete the process.

He said that since the process started, dozens of Civil Servants have been eager to regularize their status which he pointed out is the right thing to do.

"They have been inquiring daily about the steps and procedures in the regulatization process ", he added.

According to the CSA boss, the crucial exercise among other things is to enable the CSA to have accurate data for each employee with regards to their qualification and processing of pension as well as other benefits.

Providing some legal backings, he stated that Section 35 of the CSA standing order of 2012 provides, among other things, that personal action notice is a process for new employment, promotion and transfer among others.

However, he disclosed that his predecessors have violated such thereby creating the current problems which he described as a share responsibility one.

"I assure all Civil Servants affected by this problem that it is a share responsibility", he noted.

Mr. Joekai speaking further stressed that a bigger portion of the responsibility should be blame on government line Ministries and agencies for failing to comply with the crucial employment requirements while employees themselves should be blame for also failing to asked the necessary questions about their statuses.

He at the same time indicated that massive awareness through the media will be carried out nation wide to have the public adequately informed about the process.

Additionally, Mr. Joekai told reporters that they will share dates, timeliness and desiganted teams to begin the ex*****on process at all spending entities as he assured all Human Resources departments Heads that they will be informed in order have them adequately prepared for the process.

As the personel action notice compliance process is said to be continuing, the new CSA Head encourage all Civil Servants to comply with the requirement process which they are doing while also re-emphasizing that there is no need to panic because the CSA is working in their interest and for the betterment of Liberia at large.

He made these remarks when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday April 10, 2024 at the Ministry of Information Culture Affairs and Tourism regular press briefing.

As a means of implementing the auditor General recommendations, the CSA boss said that the CSA will place a moratorium on 122 employees across 20 line Ministries and agencies salaries as of April for illegally and fraudulently sharing bank accounts which cost the government to lost about 30, 795.09cents USD monthly for said discrepancies.

The CSA at the same time encourage those concerned to form part of a month verification process if not the affected people will be permanently removed from the government's payroll as of May 2024.

The decision was reached following an audit report conducted by the GAC from 2018- 2021 respectively.

The audit report in two instances for scenario one shows that one employee with the same name, same National Identification Registry number , same date of birth is listed twice under the same entity with the same position but with one bank account and a single bank , this the CSA head described as double dipping , meaning the employee along receiving two salaries.

As for scenario two, he explained according to the GAC's audit report that two different individuals have the same bank account number, different positions and are working in the same entity , this he said was ghosts names representing ghosts employees who are not working but are receiving salaries .

During the audit report he stressed that mobile money payments were made to 127 individuals whose names on the GSM mobile numbers were different from the names on the payroll.

According to him the government is losing 12, 040.14cents USD and 550, 852.70LD monthly. In order words he said people are being paid for services they did not render.

As part of the CSA latest decision all individuals concerns will not receive salaries as of April and should participate in a one month verification process if not as of May 2024, their names will be removed from the government's payroll.

Speaking more, he pointed out that the audit report also Uncovered that 9287 employees representing 13.7% of employees records across 91 spending entities were not available for the physical verification process during the audit something he stated shows that payments were made to ghosts employees leading to fraud, waste and misappropriation.

Mr. Joekai told reporters that said action caused the government to lose 3, 764, 204 usd monthly and as a result of such, a comprehensive verification for a period of one month will be done and after which, anyone who fails to comply, their names will be removed from the government's payroll.

The CSA Boss commended development partners to include, US government, the European Union, the Swedish government and the World Bank Groups for supporting such vital comprehensive payroll compliance audit process.

It can be recalled six years ago that the public sector modernization project was implemented by the Civil Service Agency and the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning including other spending entities of government.

The overall goal was a major reform to ensure prudent public financial management.

Among other things, an integral part of the PSMP was the National payroll management and central system to ensure accountability and transparency in the usage of public funds to pay government employees.

President Boakai Declares Friday, April 12, ‘National Fast and Prayer Day’; To Be Observed as a National Holiday

By: Julius Konton

President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, Sr., has by Proclamation declared Friday, April 12, 2024, as “National Fast and Prayer Day” and is to be observed throughout Liberia as a National Holiday.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, the Day is to be observed as a Day of supplication, prayer, fasting and meditation so that our efforts as people may be crowned with great achievements to the common cause of the Nation, the State, and its humanity.

The Proclamation further calls upon all Prelates, Priests, Elders, Deacons, Evangelists, Imams, and all residents, regardless of religious creed, to gather with one accord in their places of worship, in each city, town, village, hamlet and home within the territorial confines of the Republic of Liberia, in simple and non-costly apparel to fast, pray and meditate from 8 o’clock in the morning.

The release says all public offices and business houses as well as market places are to remain closed during the observance, while all citizens and foreign residents will cease from their usual daily occupations and avocations in recognition of God’s love and guidance.

“Through the patience and unwavering commitment to democratic principles, Liberians turned up on Election Day in large numbers and exercised their right to vote peacefully that laid the groundwork for the country’s second democratic transfer of power in over 70 years; the resilience of Liberia’s democratic institutions was instrumental to achieving this milestone and serves as an example for the region and the world”, the Proclamation stresses.

The Proclamation further recalls there have been unusual and extraordinary outbreaks of natural phenomenon and man-provoked national crises that have caused much harm, devastation, and destruction in many parts of the world from which our Nation has been spared by the Grace of God.

The Proclamation recounts that there are large numbers of the nation’s kith and kin living in uncertain conditions in the Diaspora, and the need for remembrance in prayers of those who have made the supreme sacrifice remains unfulfilled.

The Presidential Proclamation stresses that the people of Liberia have always submitted themselves, in humble supplication to the Almighty God for guidance and protection as well as for peace in their national life and affairs.

The Proclamation is in consonance with the Patriotic and Cultural Observances Law of the Republic of Liberia, Chapter one, declaring the second Friday in April of each year as a “National Fast and Prayer Day”, as a day of fasting and prayer for the prosperity of the nation.
