Mr. Karnue accompanied by a crowd of well-wishers. First Liberian Baha’i promises to serve with humilityFor the first time in Liberia Sam Karnue, a Baha’i, has been inducted into office as Commissioner of Yarpea Mah Administrative District in Nimba County.Members of the Baha’i faith do not campaign for any position neither do they lobby or impress an appointment power, to allow them serve in government, but accept appointments void of political influence and class system.Commissioner Karnue receives the gable of authority from Inspector Reginald MehnMr. Karnue, whose appointment came as a surprise to many of his acquaintances, accepted President George Weah’s call to serve his people, who have longed over the years for a leadership that will unite them.In his acceptance remark on Saturday, June 9, in Duo Tiayee, where he was inducted, Karnue promised to serve his people with humility, passion, love and work, to unite not only the people of Yarpea Mah, but the entire county.“It is my prayer that unity abides with us as a people while we work together in the best interest of our district Nimba, which is a political subdivision of our country Liberia. It is even my best wish that what we do here to live in perfect peace and harmony impacts the lives of others in counties near and far,” he said, assuring the residents that his leadership will be a sound and harmonious one free from prejudice of all forms and sectionalism.“As I consider this a call for service, it is also of my numerous expectations that we consider respecting each other, regardless of origin or position, as a means of collectively achieving our developmental goals,” Karnue told the locals.He outlined truthfulness, humility, trustworthiness, patience and punctuality as pathways to success and improvement in one’s life.Quoting from the Baha’i text which says “the well-being of humanity, its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established,” Karnue, a Baha’i by faith, called on his predecessor Fred N. Gaye to offer his expertise in helping the new leadership succeed.He said his appointment came not by means of lobby, neither any political engagement, “because I did not wish neither pray for this. I did not rob anybody of anything to get this appointment. In fact, I was in Sierra Leone on Baha’i duty when I received a call that I had been preferred to serve as district commissioner for Yarpea Mah,” Karnue said.Nimba County Inspector Reginald Mehn advised Mr. Karnue to be a leader with new eyes, ears and nose and whose job will always be above sentiments and personal feelings.Mehn, who performed the task on behalf of the county’s superintendent David Dorr Cooper, called on Mr. Karnue not to give credence to gossips, because doing so destroys any leadership.“You have come to serve people of diverse backgrounds. There are people here who still practice the Poro and the Sande societies, while others do not. Please respect the cultural practices of your people and be a leader for all, regardless of place of origin and class system,” Mehn said.Former Commissioner Fred N. Gaye considers Karnue as his friend and brother, whose developmental agenda he is set to assist in order for it to succeed. He referred to Yarpea Mah District as the only common denominator they all have to protect from acts of division.He expressed his gratitude to former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for allowing him to serve his people over the years.The induction ceremony was characterized by presentation of gifts giving and traditional dances.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
