As the fight to remove indicted House Speaker Alex Tyler intensifies, River Gee County Senator Conmany Wesseh has asked the Speaker to honorably resign his post to safe the integrity and honorable image of the lower House.
Senator Wesseh stressed that continuous power struggle reduces the morale, credibility and integrity of the House, only promoting power grief and personal interest. Speaking to this paper Thursday in his office at the Capitol, the Liberian diplomat said power struggle and personal interest against the common good directly or indirectly hamper credibility of a noble institution such as the House of Representatives.
He said the best option for any individual who finds himself or herself in such situation is to resign quietly so that the workings of that government’s institution can be functional. He noted that since the rigmarole over the Speaker’s removal commenced, the function of the House has been seriously stalled, while lawmakers and staffers are receiving their benefits, allowances and financial benefits at the expense of the Liberian people.
Sen. Wesseh pointed out that it is just unacceptable and embarrassing for the sake of just one person’s interest that the entire House of Representatives cannot normally function, so the best option for the Speaker Tyler is to act in conformity with international best practice by honorably resigning.
