Tyler Terms Baimba’s Demise A National Loss

By Wilfred Gorto, LINA

MONROVIA, September 30 (LINA) – Speaker of the House of Representatives Alex Tyler has said that the death of Lofa County District #2 lawmaker Fofi Sahr Baimba is not only a loss to 53rd legislature and the people of Lofa, but a national loss.

Tyler said that Baimba was a man passionate about working in the interest of all Liberians as he exercised professionalism, especially in the field of agriculture which he was always committed to.

Speaking to reporters at the Capitol Building in Monrovia Tuesday, Tyler noted that his fallen colleague was also using his agrarian skills to replicate the concept of self-sufficiency as it relates to food production in Lofa County.

Tyler hoped that the people of Lofa will elect a new and qualified replacement of Baimba to adequately represent their district.

Baimba, who was chair of the House Committee on Agriculture, Fishery, and Forestry, died on September 13 at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital following a brief illness.

His death brings to two the number of deceased representatives of the 53rd Legislature.

 A Book of Condolence in honor of Baimba was opened at the Capitol Building in the early morning hours on Tuesday.

Members of the 53rd legislature and the Liberian cabernet, among others, gathered in the rotunda of the Capitol Building which was decorated with black and purple linings a day after representative Baimba died.

 Mourners in a rather slow sitting-queue all made their way to the Book of Condolence to pay their tributes.
