Williams, a native of Maryland County, was appointed by the previous president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on November 30, 2017, and transferred to Rabat. She was one of his favorite government employees at the moment, and he said that deciding to send him away was painful, but it had to be done.

“We are taking one of our favorite people to be our ambassador,” she said, urging to build and strengthen strong ties that will lead to closer cooperation and promote bilateral ties with the Kingdom of Morocco.

She described him as an institutional person, manifested by his performance wherever he served.

Williams worked for the Sirleaf administration for a number of years as Director General of the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority before being chosen by the President Sirleaf for the ambassadorship to Morocco (LCAA). Additionally, Roberts International Airport (RIA), widely regarded as Liberia’s top airport, nominated him as acting director. He held both of these positions at once.

The government entrusted him with the duty of guaranteeing prompt implementation of emergency repair works being carried out on the airport’s runway, taxiway, and apron due to his “extensive experience.”

The funeral plans for the deceased Liberian diplomat, according to the government’s statement on Saturday, would be revealed later.
