The World Bank Liberia Country Manager, Dr. Ohene Owusu Nyanin, has ended his four-year tenure and is being re-assigned at the Bank’s Washington D.C. Headquarters in the United States of America. He is being replaced by Ms. Inguna Dobraja, a national of Latvia.
As he ends his duty, Dr. Nyanin says he is leaving Liberia very positive about the future of this country.
He pointed out that not only has the Liberian economy been recording respectable growth, but the infrastructure and social services have been overhauled and that buoyancy has bounced back onto the markets and streets of Monrovia.
He expressed optimism that the Bank would be able to do more in the coming years on youth employment, urging those managing the Youth Employment Services (YES) Project to work even harder so that the youth of Liberia shall get gainful employment.
For us, we are grateful to outgoing Country Manager Nyanin largely because he led the World Bank Country Team in working with the Liberian Government and other donor partners to move Liberia from a post-conflict situation to more vibrant economy.
Truly, it was a wonderful challenge for Dr. Nyanin to assist in multiplying the dividends of sustainable peace and stability for the development and prosperity of Liberia.
We wholeheartedly commend him for his dedicated and committed services rendered the Liberian Government and people during his four-year tenure of duty.
We join others to bid him farewell. We wish him more successes in his many endeavors.
Conversely, It is our fervent hope that Dr. Nyanin’s successor, Ms. Dobraja will emulate his good works for betterment of our beloved country-Liberia.
Again, we bid outgoing Country Manager Nyanin farewell and wish him well his potential accomplishments.
