"New GSA Boss Threatens Administrative Action Against Officials Holding Public Assets Illegally"

Monrovia-The Director General of the General Services Agency, Galakpai Kortimai has threatened administrative action against past government officials who are illegally possessing public properties and other assets.

Delivering a special statement at his official taking over ceremony as GSA Boss Thursday, March 14, 2024 in Monrovia, Mr. Kortimai warned those former officials to stop keeping the public assets in their possession.

He vowed to retrieve without any form of witch-hunt, government’s properties, license plates and other assets to the entity immediately.

According to him, the retrieval of government assets will first begin with staff at the GSA, quoting reports that some staffers are using government assigned plates on their private vehicles.

Under his administration, the GSA Director General promised to revisit and review all policies regarding the scope and operations of the entity and ensure that they conform to present day reality.

However, Galakpai Kortimai has emphasized that moving forward; the General Services Agency will resist any government’s ministry or agency ascribing to itself the functions of the entity.

He stressed that his assessment has informed him that some public institutions have taken from the GSA, the task to repair, renovate public entities and other services for the national government.

At the same time the immediate former Director General of the General Services Agency, Mary Broh has emphasized the need to prioritize young people in national government to lead the country.

Speaking at the turning over ceremony of the newly confirmed DG of the institution Thursday, March 14, 2024 in Monrovia, Madam Broh lauded President Joseph Boakai for giving the privilege to many young Liberians to serve their country in the Unity Party administration.

The 72-year-old respected public servant urged the new GSA Director General to not accept challenges under his administration, but he should rather consider those challenges that can be turned into opportunities in the interest of the entity and the country.

She also stressed that it will not be Mr. Kortimai fault if the necessary revenues are not raised by the government to pay civil servants when the government has the relevant authorities to do so and as such, the head of the entity should focus on maintaining government’s properties.

Madam Broh also encouraged the GSA boss and his staffers to foster integrity, accountability, patriotism and commitment to what they were called to do for the nation and keep her good legacy.

“I urge you to stand for integrity, accountability, patriotism and commitment, just do what you were called to do for the nation and keep the good legacy”
