(MONROVIA, LIBERIA – February 10, 2014) At the Inaugural Meeting of the Africa Cabinet Government Network (ACGN), held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Liberia was on Friday, February 7, elected as one of three regional Vice Presidents.

In a communiqué issued at the close of its Roundtable Workshop, held February 3-7, the Council of African Cabinet Secretaries, the ACGN’s governing body, unanimously elected Dr. Momo Rogers, Director-General of the Cabinet, Republic of Liberia, to serve for the next two years as Vice President for the West Africa region. 

Other officers elected were: Dr. Ernest Surrur, Secretary to the Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service of the Government of Sierra Leone, as President; Mr. Abdon Agaw Jok Nhial, Secretary General of the Government of South Sudan, as Vice President for the East Africa region; and Dr. Roland Msiska, Secretary to the Cabinet of the Government of the Republic of Zambia, as Vice President for the Southern Africa region.

The elected officers automatically became members of the Executive Committee of the Network, authorized by the Council to lead the Network and bring together those who have the responsibility of supporting and managing the collective Cabinet decision-making of their respective jurisdictions. The Committee is further mandated to explore practical ways to improve Cabinet procedures and build capacity within Cabinet Secretariats to support line Ministries.

The Committee also has the responsibility of recommending to the Council the appointment of an Executive Director to run the Network’s Secretariat, and setting up of a Technical Committee comprised of senior staff of the Secretariats of member countries.

During the Roundtable Workshop, the Liberian Director-General of the Cabinet, Dr. Rogers, chaired the second-day sessions, made two presentations, and served on a high-level panel on the “Role of the Cabinet Secretary.”

Speaking about what Liberia stands to gain from the Network, Dr. Rogers noted that besides sharing best practices with his colleagues, two Liberian college graduates have already been employed by the Network to work in his office, and an international senior advisor from Adam Smith International would be traveling with him to Liberia to begin training the new staff and helping to improve the Cabinet system and processes of Liberia.  The new staff will later attend two international workshops on Cabinet processes and procedures.

According to Dr. Rogers, the Secretary to the Cabinet of Ghana has accepted to host the next Roundtable Workshop in Accra before the end of the year.
