MONROVIA, July 21(LINA) – The Managing Director of the National Housing Authority(NHA), Samuel Wlue, has called on employees to work to ensure that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf leaves a legacy in the housing sector of the country before the end of her tenure.
He said President Sirleaf is “very passionate” about the country’s housing sector, and as such it was incumbent upon the NHA to ensure that the President’s dream of improving this sector becomes a reality.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Wlue made the statement on Monday when he officially took over as NHA Managing Director from Mr. Samuel Thompson.
He thanked the Liberian leader for his preferment, and promised to justify the confidence reposed him.

Mr. Thomson promised to work with the new management, but stressed that local and international training of staff at the NHA, would place the entity in a better position to meet current housing challenges and in developing innovative products, proper financial reporting, timely response and ensuring value for money.
