LNTTGAWU vice president for operations, Ezekiel S. Kamara, lauded the honorees for their support to the Tailor Union which, he said, has been very helpful to the organization. He noted in particularly “wear your proud” philosophy and habit introduced by former President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
“We are honored to recognize these personalities in our society, because they are always ready to support the union’s operations. We can say with certainty that this is happy day for us to honor these personalities, who we believe truly deserve to be honored,” Mr. Kamara, who introduced the awards winners said.
The union continues to help in contributing to revenue collection, a commitment that the union is prepared to maintain.
Chief Tamba Younda, former Board Chairman/founding member of LNTTGAWU, lauded the organizers for honoring them, especially for their contributions toward the development of the union.
“We will continue to pray for you people. We founded this union, but it is for the good of everyone. We must continue to work together to ensure that the union serves the general good of the country,” Chief Younda stated.
During the program, LNTTGAWU also graduated 30 young men and women who completed nine months training in tailoring and the making of garments and textiles.
