Speaking about the significance of the aptitude test, the Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer of the Liberia Maritime Authority, Mr. Binyah C. Kesselly told applicants that it was necessary to identify those with potential and excellent abilities, and train them in order to kick off the mammoth task of training up to 10,000 seafarers. ''Discipline and respect are expected of you when you are aboard a vessel.
You represent the Liberian flag and whatever behavior you exhibit reflects directly on your country, Liberia.
If I will be hated for this, I won't lose a sleep over it but no one is going to taint the reputation we have built over the years in the shipping world……no!
Not on my watch.'', Mr. Kesselly in a rather serious tone averred.
It can be recalled that Mr. Kesselly
during a weekly press briefing at the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism stated that the Liberia Maritime Authority
will over the next four years train and seek employment for up to 10,000 young Liberian seafarers between the ages of 18 and 30 years.
Said Mr. Kesselly at the Press Briefing: ''I have the support of the Board of Directors of the Liberia Maritime Authority and the Maritime Committees of both the House and the Senate towards the achievement of this goal.
It's an embarrassment that Liberia, which has the second largest shipping registry in the world can't boast of more than 50 trained and certified seafarers''.
further stated: ''We are poised to see the accomplishment of this goal and the entire management team at Maritime
is very involved with this initiative.
We can assure the Liberian people that the president's promise of job creation will be hugely supported by this initiative.'' He

Commissioner Binyah C. Kesselly
Earlier, Liberia Maritime Authority (LMA) Commissioner, Binyah C. Kesselly, commended his special guests and RMU board members for attending the meeting and expressed the hope that the Liberia Meeting of the RMU will provide sound bases upon which the university will move forward.
Mr. Kesselly, a US-trained business strategist and public administrator, also thanked member states of the RMU for supporting the recent election of Liberia as second vice chair of Committee (1), of the 27 Assembly of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
noted that Liberia's election to chair the prestigious IMO committee was a victory for RMU member countries and other African countries.

Also speaking at the certification and recognition ceremony was the Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer of the Liberia Maritime Authority, Mr. Binyah C. Kesselly who charged the honorees to do a good job representing Liberia.
Said Commissioner Kesselly, "I promise you this much, if you continue to show what Liberia is all about-dedication, honesty, hard work, sincerity and commitment, we will continue to support everything that is necessary to ensure that more and more seafarers get on vessels.
"However," Commissioner Kesselly continued "let me say to you categorically that if one of you blunders, the very first amendment that we will propose to the Act creating the Liberia Maritime Authority will be the removal of the section that makes us responsible to secure placement opportunities for seafarers and begin to engage others that are more serious in representing the image of Liberia."
Commissioner Kesselly expressed his frustration that Liberia, having the 2nd largest shipping registry has 500 or less of the more than 300,000 seafarers worldwide.
"Your responsibility cannot be underestimated and cannot be understated.
You are our new ambassadors and I'm proud to be leading the Liberia Maritime Authority
during this historic moment of our Maritime program, especially with the reelection of Liberia to the IMO Council
Work hard because nothing covers performance.
Encourage each other and support your colleagues in the discharge of your respective duties", Commissioner Kesselly concluded.
