Grand Bassa County District #5 Representative Thomas Goshua is seeking the indulgence of the House to invite before its plenary the Ministers of Internal affairs, Education, Health, and Mines & Energy to address issues of alleged perpetual delay in remuneration of public sector employees, particularly those appointed at the local government level.
According to Representative Goshua, for too long local government officials have worked for various Counties, but have yet to be included on the government payroll.
Representative Goshua speaking during Tuesday’s session, at the same time expressed regret over the recent presidential appointment, adding that some of the local government appointments have the propensity to undermine the working of other local leaders within the Counties.
The Grand Bassa County District #5 lawmaker however maintained that the national government needs to see a reason to help other local leaders like Chiefs, who have served various Counties for a long period of time.
For his part, Deputy Minister for Internal Affairs Momolu Johnson said over 27 employees have been shortlisted on the payroll of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, for the growth and development of the Counties.
The Deputy Internal Affairs Minister also added that the Ministry is closely working with its local leaders for the betterment of good governance.
