Chiefs Summon All 73 Representatives


The National Traditional Council of Liberia (NTCL) is exploring a popular adage that “when efforts to solve problems at a surface level do not materialize, you have to find their root causes.” By that, the NTCL has summoned all 73 members in the House of Representatives to meet with the Council to overcome the internal wrangling in the Lower House.

Nimba County District #5 Representative Samuel G. Kogar, co-Chairman of the committee calling for the recusal of Speaker Tyler, said the entire membership of the House of Representatives is expected to appear at the Council’s 24th Street Sinkor headquarters today (Tuesday) at about 1:00 p.m.

The Nimba lawmaker spoke to journalists yesterday at the NTCL headquarters at the end of the meeting, which was cut short due to the absence of Deputy Speaker Hans M. Barchue and other lawmakers who had to honor a scheduled conference at the Supreme Court with Justice-in-

Chambers, Jamesetta H. Wolokollie and the pro-Tyler bloc, over the same matter.

Grand Bassa County District #4 Representative J. Byron Browne also told journalists that their meeting at the NTCL is proof that they desire peace. Rep. Browne, also a member of the renegade bloc, said though they are yearning for a peaceful Legislature, peace is costly and priceless.

“We will respect the chiefs, and will be here immediately after our session at the Joint Chambers,” Rep. Brown assured.

Over 11 lawmakers, from both the renegade and pro-Tyler camps, were at yesterday’s meeting.
