Be Hope Givers, Avoid Parochial Interest – VP Taylor Tells Senators


Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor Tuesday assumed her official duties as president of the Liberian Senate, imploring members of the senate to put aside their personal and narrow interest.

“We will put aside all actions and attitudes which engender perceptions, diversity and rivalry amongst us,” she said.

‘The job we’re summoned to do by our people is as sacred as it is demanding and we should have no accommodation for distractions and pursuit of parochial interest.”

The Vice President told Senators to go the extra mile to be ‘hope giver, pacesetters and innovators, she said.

The George Weah-led government focuses its development agenda primarily on pro-poor governance, which we should work to uphold, she said.

“It is expected that the national agenda of the President of Liberia will form the basis of the legislative agenda of our government over the next years.”
