House Speaker Bhofal Chambers says recent cheap propaganda meted out against him by some lawmakers will not deter him from working for the country.
He made the comment Friday, 14 September at the Capitol Building during the closing ceremony of the House of Representatives, climaxing the first regular sitting of the 54th Legislature.
Speaker Chambers, an executive of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) pledges that he and other lawmakers will rally around President George Manneh Weah to achieve the Pro-Poor Agenda for Development and Prosperity in Liberia.
Speaker Chambers indicates that members of the 54th Legislature are committed to the development of the country and they do not seek to jeopardize the supreme interest of the State and its citizens.
In order for the CDC pro-poor government to achieve its objectives, Speaker Chambers emphasizes that there is a dire need for the three branches of government to work together.
He notes however that members of the 54th Legislature are “not the brown envelope type.”Speaker Chambers admonishes lawmakers here to put aside their personal differences and place the interest of the country higher in an effort to promote peace, unity and reconciliation.
