TUBMANBURG, May 15 (LINA) – A senior staff in the office of Bomi County Senator Morris Saytumah has said protection of the basic and fundamental rights of citizens is paramount to the growth and development of any nation.

Administrative Assistant Roosevelt Toure pointed out that the Constitution, which is the organic law of Liberia, ensures that the fundamental and basic rights of every citizen are protected irrespective of their educational, social, political, economic or religious status.

He made the statement in Tubmanburg recently when he proxy for Senator Saytumah at programs marking the 152nd anniversary of the Red Cross Society hosted by the Bomi County Chapter.

Speaking on the Theme: "The Power of Humanity; Fundamental Principles in Action", Toure noted that to have fundamental principles in action, society should exhibit respect for the rule of law and constituted authority and show love for one another.

He said when everybody in society learns to live in peace and harmony, and with care for each other, fundamental principles will not only be in actions but will be realized, achievable and practical.

Toure indicated that like other humanitarian organizations, the Red Cross is under obligation to ensure that everyone’s basic rights are unhindered in order for them to be empowered for the betterment of their lives.
