To have this done, he said the legislature should have the records of past and present lawmakers to afford citizens who were not opportune to see the former lawmakers and their works executed during their tenure.
He made the statement yesterday during the official re-opening ceremony of the Legislative Library and Archives held at the Capitol building where he noted that legislative history is important and as such should be safeguarded.
“The maintenance of records at this building is laid in the preview of legislative staffers. If the legislature will be strong it is the staffer’s responsibilities to uphold records of the past and present happenings at the building,” he added.
He then used the occasion to caution the Director of LIS, McCarthy Weh, to develop a program that will open the legislature to the people of Liberia.
The LIS is the information arm of the legislature at the Capitol building.
