Hon. Joekai, who has served as Director-General for just three months, has already implemented significant reforms that have greatly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of the civil service. His commitment to fostering a culture of accountability and integrity within the public service has not gone unnoticed. Under his leadership, the CSA has seen the introduction of groundbreaking policies aimed at the empowerment of civil servants in various public institutions across Liberia, which has elevated the standards of service delivery and administrative efficiency.

Alexander Reginald Bates, Chief Executive Officer of ALOM, presented the award to Hon. Joekai. Bates praised Hon. Joekai’s unparalleled dedication and excellence in transforming the civil service sector, highlighting that his efforts have brought the Agency to new heights.
