“Uphold the Sacred Trust”, Joseph Boakai Challenges Senators

MONROVIA, January 12 (LINA) – The Vice President of Liberia and President of the Liberian Senate, Joseph N. Boakai, has cautioned Senators to uphold the sacred trust imposed on them by electorates across the country.

He said the need to recount the risk voters endured as a result of turning out to vote even in the midst of the deadly Ebola virus cannot be over emphasized.

He made the statement Monday at programs marking the official opening of the first sitting of the Fourth Session of the 53rd Legislature in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building.

“We should not proceed from here without acknowledging that majority of our works are in seeking the development and well-being of our constituents through proper legislation”, he said.

On December 20, voters in Liberia went to the polls and elected 15 new senators, including two incumbents-Bong County’s Jewel Taylor and Nimba County’s Prince Johnson, while Grand Gedeh County's Isaac Nyenabo, Grand Kru County’s Cletus Wotorson and River Gee County’s Frederick Cherue backed off for personal reasons.

“Let me remind you that this is the House of Elders and as such, you should not be moved by criticisms, but your work and utterances should accordingly be as elevated as they are virtuous,” he cautioned.
