Liberia: Lawmaker Wants Decentralization of Govt's Activities

The Chairman of the Statutory Committee on Judiciary at the House of Representatives, Cllr. S. Gayah Karmo said developments in the areas of educational and health are cardinal issues that should be prioritized by the Liberian government.

Speaking during a constituency town hall meeting recently, the Bomi County District #1 lawmaker said education and health are basic social services that every citizen should have access to.

Representative Karmo, who constructed two clinics in Bayso and Gayah towns respectively, stressed the need to decentralize development activities that will represent the wishes and aspirations of the people.

"We cannot be complacent on development; our people need lots of development initiatives; so we have to strive to alleviate their plight", Representative Karmo told his constituents.

He pointed out that lawmakers have responsibilities to the people; and therefore, it is incumbent upon them (Lawmakers) to ensure the welfare of citizens is given attention.

In response, Bomi County Senior Senator Lahai Lansanah lauded Representative Karmo for his dedication in promoting education and health within the county.
