The Committee recalled that Her Excellency, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf had earlier given assurance that Liberian candidates would write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 2011. The Committee however noted that the structures currently in place for the take-off of the examination in Liberia were still very far from being adequate. It therefore urged the government to keep alive the hope of the Liberian child to have the opportunity, sooner than later, to compete with his/her peers in the other member countries of WAEC. The Committee was however, confident that the government would do everything possible to meet the target date of 2011 for the commencement of the international examination in Liberia.

The Liberia Administrative and Finance Committee, at its meeting, noted with appreciation the preparations being made for the hosting of the 58th Annual Council Meeting by the Government of the Republic of Liberia in March 2010, in line with the principle of rotational hosting of the meeting by member countries. The Committee noted that the 57th Annual Council Meeting was hosted by the Republic of Sierra Leone in March this year and that the Republic of Ghana would host the 59th Annual Council Meeting in 2011.

Gentlemen of the media, before the week-long series of meetings started, precisely on Sunday, November 15, 2009, the Registrar along with the Head of National Office led the Management team on a courtesy visit to the Mayor of Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Mayor Gbilley D. Karnley Snr., who had earlier in the year allocated three acres of land to WAEC for the building of a Regional Office in Bomi County.

We want to place on record our profound appreciation to the eminent Mayor of Tubmanburg for his noble and highly patriotic gesture which we have accepted as an indication of his good foresight, love for his people and commitment to the development of education in the Republic of Liberia. The establishment of Regional Offices is an effective way of bringing the Council’s services closer to the people. We are therefore confident that as the gains of the Mayor’s kind gesture become visible in the very near future, WAEC as well as the people of Bomi County will remain eternally grateful to him and posterity will not fail to accord him the due recognition.

We want to use this opportunity to solicit the assistance of the government, donor agencies, corporate organizations, and patriotic individuals towards the development of the land.
