The plenary of the Liberian Senate has unanimously confirmed G. Alphonso Gaye, Managing Director-designate at the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC).

The confirmed nominee is a former Senator of Grand Gedeh County. His confirmation on Tuesday during the regular session followed recommendations contained in the Senate Committee on Public Corporations read by Senate Secretary, Nanborloh Singbeh.

According to the report, Mr. Gaye has the necessary qualifications, competency, and professional abilities and he is suitable to occupy the position. 

He along with other nominees was named on Wednesday, 12 April 2023 by President George Manneh Weah. 

The decision to confirm Mr. Gaye was triggered by a motion from Lofa County Senator, Stephen Zargo, as all 26 senators present Tuesday voted on the record for the confirmation.

Meanwhile, the President Pro-tempore of the Liberian Senate and Grand Kru County Senator, Albert Tugbeh Chie has mandated the Senate Secretariat to inform the President about the decision.
