Liberia: CNDRA Boss Honored

The Director General of the Center for National Documents and Records Agency (CNDRA), Madam P. Bloh Sayeh was yesterday honored by the MICROSCOPE Newspaper. According to the Editorial Consultant of the Microscope Newspaper, Mr. Daniel Roger, Madam Bloh Sayeh's honoring is based on her hard work and dedication in the transformation of the Center.

He stated further that Madam Sayeh has made the National Archive into a modern digital scanning center which meets international standards.

Mr. Rogers said that with the digitalization of the Center the process of retrieving deeds and licenses has become faster and easier and added that even court cases involving land disputes have reduced due to the updated system at the CNDRA.

In response, the CNDRA Director General, Madam P. Bloh Sayeh said the modern documents keeping system is now processed through a digitalized data base system that will provide easy access to existing land records and national documents.

The Director General said CNDRA was created as an autonomous bureau in 1977 as the repository for archived government documents and the registries for land deeds and marriage licenses.

She said further that another data base system on the documentation and system of records has been set up at the Indiana State University as a back-up for the future.

However, Mr. Rogers has cautioned staffers of the National Archive that the beauty and elegance of this customer service center must move in tandem with the beauty and elegance of the character and politeness, discipline of the customer service agents who will operate in this center.

Meanwhile, Director Sayeh has congratulated President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, all partners, local and international for making CNDRA what it is now. She added that the staff of the Center has also worked tirelessly in creating a new CNDRA that the country can boast of. Writes Lincoln Barcon (Cub Reporter)
