Civil Society Union Showers NASSCORP Boss

The National Civil Society Union of Liberia (NACSUL) is commending the Director General of the National Social Security Corporation (NASSCORP), Dewitt Von-Ballmoos, for the construction and subsequent dedication of a modern regional hub in Western-Liberia.

The regional hub which is valued at a little over US$ 400,000 started three years ago when the government of President George Manneh Weah came to power in 2018 and was on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 dedicated during the second leg of his citizens’ engagement tour in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.

According to the President of NACSU, Amos B.S. Kanneh, the innovation and creativity exhibited by Director General Von-Ballmoos will curb the numerous challenges faced by residents of Bomi, Grand Cape Mount and Gbarpolu Counties who had to travel to Monrovia for their pension benefits.

He expressed that now with the hub, residents’ now can a bit more relief as they will conduct their respective public transactions in their region.

Mr. Kanneh described the move by Director Von-Ballmoos to have constructed such modern facility in Bomi County as a way of taking social security to the ordinary people and is urging the management team at NASSCORP headed by its innovative and far-sighted Director General to extend such brilliant initiative to other regions including the Southeast, where citizens find it difficult to commute to Monrovia for transactions especially during the rainy season.

The Newly dedicated regional Hub consists of residences, offices, commercial banking institutions etc. that will provide variety of services to the citizens in that part of the country.

The commendation by the NACSUL leader follows the institution’s regular assessment and fact-findings visit to the Western cluster which comprises of Bomi, Gand Cape Mount and Gbarpolu Counties.

NACSUL is at the same time extolling the Director General of the Corporation for such brilliant initiative and challenged other officials of the Liberian government to emulate such exemplary role to positively impact the livelihoods of the ordinary citizens as it sees public service as a call to service and not to amass wealth at the detriment of the masses.

Meanwhile NACSUL has reaffirmed its support to working with the management team at NASSCORP to move the Weah-led Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) forward.
