Sen. Johnson Decries Tribalism, Sectionalism

first_imgBomi County ranking Senator Sando Dazoe Johnson has condemned Liberians who hide behind the doctrine of sectionalism and tribalism to get at one another.“There is no need for tribal or sectional sentiment, especially as we are looking for a more people-centered person to occupy the seat of Senate Pro Tempore,” Senator Johnson   told journalists yesterday on the grounds of the Capitol Building.The Bomi lawmaker said his colleagues are not going to support a candidate who sings the song of division, saying the Senate Bloc he belongs to has decided to give full support to ensure that his candidate, Gbarpolu County Senator Armah Zolu Jallah becomes the next Pro Tempore.To buttress Senator Johnson’s comment, Senator Jallah was seen having lunch with some members of the Senate Majority Bloc, among them the leaders of the Bloc, Senators Geraldine Doe-Sherif and Henry Willie Yallah.Also seen among Jallah’s support bloc were Senators Peter Coleman, George Tengbeh, Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, Matthew Jaye and Dallas A.V. Gueh, among others.The issue of when the Pro Tempore election and those for the leadership or Statutory posts will be held did not come up during yesterday’s opening program.But the Secretary of the Senate, as a matter of protocol, is expected to announce the existence of vacancies for the Pro Tempore and other statutory posts, followed by the announcement of a timetable for elections. He will then receive letters of applications from or on behalf of interested candidates.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

They will host FC Basel in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday.“We are almost in the quarter-finals,” said Guardiola, according to the Manchester Evening News. “We are almost champions of the Premier League.“But we are not in the quarter-finals and we are not champions – that is why we have to be calm.“That is the best advice I can give to my players.
