River Gee County Senator, Conmany Wesseh has expressed fear over his dismissal letter from members of the Rivergee Legislative caucus.
Sen. Conmany Wesseh of Rivergee
Recently, the Rivergee County Legislative Caucus headed by Rivergee county district #3 Representative, Francis Dopoh suspended Senator Wesseh for time indefinite from the caucus.
According to the group, Senator Wesseh’s suspension was triggered by what they consider as disrespect and vilification to the caucus and disrepute to the office of the President which is detrimental to the development of the county.
But addressing a news conference Monday, at his Capitol Building office in Monrovia, Senator Wesseh said the charges levied against him by his colleagues are the same kind of charges in the past that got some people killed and some ran into exile.
“These are the same charges we had under Presidents Taylor and Doe that got people to be killed, jailed and some into exile,” Senator Wesseh recounted.
Senator Wesseh stated that it would be prudent enough for his colleagues to provide proper explanation to their communication and what they think the President has done to him (Sen. Wesseh).
The Rivergee county Senator called on all human rights groups in the country and pro-democracy groups as well to join him in asking his colleagues to provide clarity to their communication.
Senator Wesseh indicated that he is an elected senator of Rivergee County and the Republic at large and such, no single member of the caucus has the right to suspend him.
He noted that he was elected by the people of Rivergee County to do the business of the Liberian people which he is committed to doing at all times and he hold no apology to anyone for working in the best interest of the people of Rivergee and Liberia at large.
“Who are they to suspend me? Are they the people of Rivergee, because I am an elected Senator and working diligently and firmly in the best interest of our people? I am a Liberian senator from Rivergee, elected by the people of Rivergee to do the Liberia people’s work and on this one I have no apology I will do that work very firmly and consistent with the law. With Respect to how people call themselves caucus or no caucus that is good and I will always be a part of that to discuss our county,” the Expelled opposition Unity Party member stressed.
Meanwhile, Senator Wesseh has called on his colleagues from the county to stop spending so much of their time on things that they think would try to distract him from doing his work within the Liberian Senate and focus on doing the work of their people.
