Liberia: Over Alleged Delay in Distribution of License Plates - Transport Minister Summoned

The Plenary of the House of Representatives has summoned Transport Minister Angela Cassell-Bush to state reason for the alleged delay in the distribution of license plates to vehicle and motorbikes owners in Liberia.

Plenary is the highest decision making body of the House of Representatives.

The House told the decision Thursday, April 7, 2016 following the submission of a communication from Nimba County Representative Prince Tokpah.

In his communication, Rep. Tokpah pointed out that the alleged delay in the distribution of license plates to vehicle and motorbikes owners is causing serious embarrassment to commuters.

He recalled that since the introduction of the new license plates for vehicles and motorbikes in May 2015, there has been delay in the distribution of plates that have already been paid for by their owners.

He lamented that owners of vehicles and motorbikes are finding it very difficult to identify unmarked vehicles and motorbikes when they are involved into accident, especially those who hit and run.

Meanwhile, Minister Bush is expected to appear before the lawmakers on tomorrow, Tuesday, April 12, 2016.

A motion for the appearance of the Transport Minister was filed by Grand Bassa County Representative Gabriel B. Smith.
