Commissioner Of CHRAJ Sends – Off National Service Personnel
The Commissioner of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) Mr. Joseph Whittal has advised National Service Personnel posted to the Commission during the 2017/2018 service year to exhibit the good qualities they have acquired over the period where ever they find themselves.
He indicated that the wealth of knowledge imparted in them was to prepare them to face the challenges in their fields of endeavour, and the experience gathered put them in good stead to attain excellence in their new jobs and make it out there.
Mr. Whittal said service to the Nation is paramount to whatever expectations they might aspire to, adding that Public Service is about being able to do something for, or serve others without necessarily considering the benefits.
The CHRAJ Commissioner made these remarks during a send-off ceremony organized for the service persons to end the service year.
The Deputy Commissioner of CHRAJ, Mr. Richard Quayson on his part encouraged the service persons to pick the virtues of honesty, integrity, humility, and dedicated service to the nation.
He stated that no matter the circumstances in life, it is always necessary for one to strive to put up the best.
He believed that the service persons would be successful if the above virtues are observed.
The Research Department of the Commission made special presentations to service persons who were attached to their office.
Service personnel, Mr. Robert Mokeh who moved the vote of thanks on behalf of his colleagues at the end of the ceremony was full of praise for the Commission and appreciative of the opportunity given them to prove their worth. He was hopeful that the doors of the Commission would be opened to them anytime there was the need to come.
Mr. Mokeh was excited about the fact that they served directly under lawyers, investigators, many more key personalities within the Commission, and more importantly, the knowledge acquired as regards their fundamental human rights and freedoms as enshrined in the 1992 Constitution.
