This new corps of officers succeeded the Marie Free-Mensah administration whose term of office expired in October 2014, the height of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
Mr. Johnson was elected in April this year, when he defeated one-time president of NASSCORP Workers' Union, Mr. M. Anthanisius Carr, in a tightly fought election.
In his inaugural address, President Johnson thanked his fellow employees for the confidence reposed in him, and promised to create harmonious working environment at the level of NASSCORP Workers Union by focusing on effective representation, accountability and unity.
He added that his administration would seek to negotiate with management on reasonable demands in a timely and matured manner in championing the voices of every employee. The new union boss pledged his administration's commitment to uniting all employees, regardless of their assignments and backgrounds.
He thanked Management for promoting good labor practices at the Corporation as well as creating the enabling environment for the successful conduct of the just-ended elections.
Meanwhile, President Johnson has set up several committees and appointed individuals to them. They include: Ways & Means, headed by Constance Bartu; Publicity, white Kezelle Vanyanbah as head; Grievance Committee, headed by Miatta W. Langford; Social Welfare Committee, chaired by Francilia Joejoe; and Program & Planning Committee, with Rose Gerring as its head.
