Advising the inductees, director general of Management Development Institute (MDI), Alieu K. Jarjue urged them to be sincere and honest to the country, adding that loyalty in their work as Civil Servant is paramount. 

Mr. Jarjue appealed to the inductees to be loyal to the government the way they are loyal to their wives and husbands, saying that as human beings, nobody would take from them what they own.
