Lower House Plans ‘Active’ Role In Ebola Fight

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 10 (LINA) -The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hans Barchue, says the leadership of the National Legislature has resolved to actively contribute to national efforts to contain the Ebola virus.

Barchue said the leadership agreed during a joint-meeting on September 8 that each Legislative Caucus of the 15 political sub-divisions selects one member to work along with the Task Force to help tackle the disease.

The Deputy Speaker made the disclosure on the third day sitting of the Extraordinary Session on Tuesday, September 9, in the Chambers of the Lower House at the Capitol Building in Monrovia.

He stressed that although the Task Force was doing its best to contain the killer disease, the Legislature needed to be a part to make it more effective, functional and responsive.

According to the Deputy Speaker, the selected caucus members will visit their various counties to ascertain the level of work being done by the Task Force and money spent there and then make recommendations to the leadership of the Legislature, which will be forwarded to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for consideration.

Barchue said the caucus members of the National Ebola Task Force will be mandated to report to the leadership of the Legislature on a weekly basis, noting that with collective initiative the battle against Ebola will be won.
