MONROVIA: The Deputy Minister for Administration and Insurance at the Ministry of Transport, Mr. Archibald Abban, says recent reassignment carried out by the authority of the Transport Ministry was done as part of the Ministry’s reform process and was also aimed at enhancing productivity, as such, it should not be misconstrued as a witch-hunt.

“Despite their reassignment and asked to report to the Ministry’s Human Resource Department for reassignment in line with the ministry’s ongoing reform process, they will still be on the Ministry’s payroll, receiving their same salaries and benefits until the Ministry can find other areas for some of the them are be placed in other positions at the Ministry like Madam Hannah G. Sheriff, former Director of Human Resource, who has been appointed as Director of Assess management for the Transport Ministry, I have nothing against any of them,” he said .

According to him, as part of their ongoing process, they have placed emphasis on the Ministry’s Human Resources Management System and payroll verification that would inform their decisions to increase staff incentives policy and a comprehensive financial policy. He added that they are focused and can never be distracted by negative detractors.
