Nimba County Senator, Prince Johnson has vowed to retire from legislative politics after his presumptive reelection in the 2023 legislative and presidential elections.
Speaking during the Senate’s regular Thursday session, Senator Johnson stressed that members of that august body had always received and passed national budget without considering key issues affecting the local government officials in the counties.
According to the Nimba County Senator, his distinguished colleagues in the Liberian Senate are only pretending to be advocating in the interest of their constituents because the electioneering period is near and some of them want to fool the people to be reelected in the 2023 legislative and presidential elections.
Senator Prince Johnson further said he has already spent 18 years in the Liberian Senate, adding that after the 2023 legislative and presidential elections and following his election by the people of Nimba County, it will make him 27 years in the House of Elders, after which he will be retired.
The Nimba County Senator made these comments when distinguished members of the House of Elders were debating a communication put on the floor from Bomi County Senator, Edwin Melvin Snowe bringing to attention of that august body about the government’s alleged delay to put some local county officials on the national payroll.
