River Gee Senator Pledges Support For Liberian Culture

By Decontee M Wesseh

MONROVIA, May 28 (LINA) –River Gee County Senator Commany B. Wesseh has assured authorities of the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism of the Senate’s readiness to support Liberian culture.

He also promised to help ratify bills that come before the body from the ministry for enactment into law, especially any convention that Liberia has been a signatory to.

Senator Wesseh gave the assurance Wednesday when he served as proxy for President Pro-Tempore Armah Jallah at the start of a two-day workshop on the 1954 Convention on Cultural Property Protection during armed conflict organized by the Ministry in collaboration with UNESCO.

Wesseh recalled that when he was at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Assistant Information Minister for Culture Jalee Qwee presented to him a document proposing the establishment of a culture commission which did not materialize due to his death.

According to the River Gee County Senator, the establishment of such a commission is necessary because it will detach culture from the ministry of information and make it independent.

He noted that the document is still in his possession, and is calling on authorities to pursue the initiative to ensure its accomplishment.
