‘Honesty Should Be the Hallmark of Your Leadership’

first_imgInducted officials of the National Teacher’s Association of Liberia Credit Union Cooperative (NTALCUC) …CDA Registrar General Cautions New LeadershipThe Acting Registrar General of the Cooperative Development Agency (CDA), Regina Sokan-Teah has challenged the newly inducted officials of the National Teacher’s Association of Liberia Credit Union Cooperative (NTALCUC) to protect their character for the forward match of the institution.Madam Sokan-Teah spoke when she inducted into office new leadership of NTALCUC over the weekend in Sinkor. NTALCUC, following a successful conduct of its elections, elected 15 persons from various counties to steer the affairs of the organization.Addressing her audience, she said nowadays leaders forget to know that they were elected to serve the people, but when they ascend to power they no longer protect their integrity and the institution that they work for. This, she said, has become  a serious challenge and that over the years created lot of problems for the society. “It is important to have the fear of God as a leader so that you can never be moved easily by evil deeds,” she stated.She challenged them to be cognizant of the fact that the best thing a good leader can do to save oneself from public outcry and to save the image of the entity by upholding their integrity, which is a recipe to building a vibrant institution.According to her, if a leader has financial discipline, he or she is capable of working any part of the world. Madam Sokan-Teah said with the overall responsibility of the CDA, which gives them all rights to audit the NTALCUC, her office will not hesitate to dismiss any one who will be caught in financial scandal.“You are representing thousands of people in Liberia; therefore please provide the kind of leadership that will transform the society and not a kind of leadership that is dictatorial,” she concluded.The Chairman and the Board of Directors of NTALCU,  Joeson B. Whisnant, admonished his colleagues to work together for the common good of the organization and the public in general. Mr. Whisnant said the viability of the entity depends on a collective contribution. “In our endeavor to make NTALCUC more viable, our first priority is to embark on an awareness campaign to encourage most of our teachers to become member of the credit union,” he declared.He also assured his colleagues of providing more training opportunity for its members across Liberia to enable them become efficient in the performance of their duties. He further promised to conduct a nationwide tour that will provide other teachers the necessary awareness about the existence of the NTALCUC in the country.He said for so long teachers in Liberia have suffered because there was no credit union in the teachers association to help buttress the little salary they earned to pay their children school fees. He noted that the existence of NTALCUC has brought them a total relief, adding that it is about time that teachers take advantage of this union.Mr. Whisnant said he was optimistic of the kind of leadership inducted at the credit union and noted that they are going to make the difference in the country. “The only way we can make NTALCUC second to none in Liberia, is to be united in all that we do,” he stated.Those who occupied positions include;  Mr. Joeson Whisnant (Bong), chairman; Mr. Wubor M. Bazzie (Lofa), co-chairman; Madam Charlotte M. Coleman (Bomi), Treasurer; and Mr. David A. Jarr (River Gee), Chaplain.Other members include Isaac Q.
