Dr Fornah also highlighted range of issues that have been challenges to the Commission over the years ranging from low budgetary allocation, lack of adequate personnel, lack of proper office facilities among other logistical problems. While pledging their support to working with the new administration, the Human Rights boss called on President Bio to look into the conditions of service for the Commission in order to enable them work effectively and efficiently.

In his response, President Bio thanked the Commission for updating him on their activities. He said that the Commission is a very important component of the State as it helps to monitor how citizens conduct themselves in a way that it does not affect others. He added that as a nation there is every need to live together devoid of the various affiliations and that the Commission should play an integral role in that direction. His Excellency also pledged his government’s commitment to working with the Commission in strengthening the country’s democratic credentials as well as improving on the human rights ranking.

Also in attendance at the meeting included the Chief Minister, Professor David Francis and other Commissioners of the Commission.
