Senator Cooper Urges Lower House To Resolve Crisis

MONROVIA, January 19(LINA) -Margibi County Senator Oscar Cooper has challenged members of the House Representatives to settle the current problem facing that august body that has led to disruption of sessions for about two weeks now.

A segment of the House has been calling for Speaker J. Alexander Tyler to recues himself from presiding over sessions until he submits to an inquiry by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission involving US$25,000.

Speaker Tyler and another segment of the House have rejected the demand, leaving plenary rowdy and lacking decorum to conduct sessions and address key issues.

But Cooper noted that it was important the lawmakers conduct themselves properly and mutually handle issues as leaders because the Liberian people are watching them and expecting better of them.  

According to the Liberia News Agency, Senator Cooper was speaking Monday when he appeared on the Liberia Broadcasting Corporation (ELBC) Talk Show, “The Supper Morning Show”.

“This nation is bigger than all of us, the people who elected us are bigger than all of us, so we must guide ourselves in all we do and project ourselves responsibly to the Liberian people and the international community,” Senator Cooper said.

He emphasized that the House must resolve the matter as soon as possible to focus on doing the work of the people and move the country forward.
