Sen. Johnson Wants Nimba Caucus Support Tyler's Removal

By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, August 12 (LINA) - Nimba County Senator Prince Y. Johnson has urged members of the Nimba County Legislative Caucus at the House of Representatives to support ongoing efforts by some lawmakers to unseat Speaker Alex Tyler.

“Such act is in the interest of the people that they (Nimba legislators) represent,” he said via mobile phone on a local radio talk show in Ganta Friday.

The Nimba County Senator said it is not prudent for a person who has been indicted on charges of corruption to conduct the affairs of a body such as the House of Representatives which is expected to exhibit high morals at all times.

On Tuesday, August 9, about 39 representatives signed a resolution asking Speaker Tyler to recuse himself from presiding over sessions, 10 short of the two-third majority needed to take the action.

Among the signatories were seven of the nine Nimba County Caucus members of the House of Representatives. They are Samuel G. Kogar, Ricks Toweh, Jeremiah Koung, Worlea S. Donah, Samuel G. Woleh, Prince Tokpah and Richard M. Tingban. 

According to Johnson, all lawmakers at the House of Representatives should consolidate forces and unseat Tyler to ensure the body regains the confidence of the public.

“It is about time for members of the Legislature to prove to their people that they are truly in support of the fight against corruption,” he pointed out, adding, "Tyler should relinquish his post and focus on exonerating himself from the corruption charges levied against him.”

Johnson stressed that his call to legislative colleagues in the Lower House is not politically-motivated, but intended to protect the image of the country and its people.
