Senator Chie Debunks Reports

MONROVIA-The President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate has  described as false  allegation made against him by some lawmakers that he owed them some money and pick up.

Senator Albert  Chie made the statement in an interview last week to  journalists at  his office.  He said, “I  do not play with any senator’s money here. I respect all of  them. Not because  I am the head  for them.  I hold each and every lawmaker here in high esteem,” he said.

It was recently reported that  some senators accused him of  refusing to release money intended for them in their legislative work. Also,  that he refused to turnover pick up  intended for their use.

“There is no truth in that. Trust me, if I owe any senator money here, my name would be all out over the place. But that is not correct. The fact here is that we all work together and we respect one another. Those are all responsible people, whom I really respect.”

According to him, he wants to  remain in good relationship with his colleague until his tenure expires in 2024.  “There is a tomorrow after this work.

He added that  he wants to maintain cordial relations with his fellow senators so that the level of respect would  live after him if he leaves the position the future.
