Senators Rally Support For Liberian Businesses
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, January 21 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount Senator Edward Dagoseh and River Gee Senator Conmany B. Wesseh have pledged their support to the Governance Commission’s study on Liberian entrepreneurs’ participation in the economy.

Both Senators Dagoseh and Wesseh noted that though they have not gone through the study, “but the content that we see, it quite interests us and we are going to give it our political goodwill.”

They pledged the support in separate remarks Thursday at the start of a one-day policy dialogue on “Validation Consultation on a Scoping Study of Liberian Entrepreneurs' Participation in the Liberian Economy” held at a local hotel in Sinkor, near Monrovia.

They, however, believe that while it will be good for Liberians to participate in the nation’s economy, it will not be of any good for foreign partners to be pushed aside as Liberians alone cannot handle the economy in the absence of foreign investors.

“We pledge our support and will lobby to win votes for this project when necessary,” the two senators pledged.

Meanwhile, Senator Wesseh has lambasted Liberians for downplaying their country and giving glory to foreign partners.

He made specific reference to the refurbished library of the Senate where it is inscribed that government made no input but rather the American people through USAID and wondered who owns the building, land and others that contributed to the success of the project.

“We cheat ourselves so often and so in our minds we are just perpetuating dependency at every level; the language we use by attributing all meaningful things to partners. Though we love these partners, we have to take on things ourselves and this is what we are trying to do,” he added.

Senator Wesseh said Liberians have no problem getting assistance from foreign friends, but locals must accept that they are the ones doing the work.
