Mr. Goodridge said their attitude does not only violate the rules of the National Legislature but undermines the Government of Liberia, and creates the impression that there is no peace and harmony in the country.
The former Information Minister made the statement Monday when he met with some reporters in Monrovia.
He called on those that are seeking the removal of the Speaker to abandon their quest and put the country first by ensuring that bills and other legislative issues are addressed in the interest of the Liberian people and the business community.
Mr. Goodridge noted that his party does not support the forceful removal of the Speaker, noting: “this is done outside of the law” therefore it must be condemned by all political leaders and all meaningful Liberians.
He said while it is true that the Speaker and others are involved in alleged bribery scheme, there is no law that calls for the recusal of any government official caught in bribery allegation in the country.
The TWP leader said the issue of morality is the determination of the individual to define his or her own integrity and not group of people or individuals who decide the moral attitude of a person.
Mr. Goodridge said those who are calling for the recusal of the Speaker are not ethical than the Speaker; therefore their struggle must be transformed into an appropriate action which is in conformity with the law.
He called on the so-called “anti-Tyler” lawmakers to return to the chambers of the National Legislature to put their issues on the floor for further deliberation, rather than passing on all radio stations making preposterous noise which exhibits immaturity.
Mr. Goodridge also called on Speaker Alex Tyler to exhibit the sense of leadership responsibility and avoid acts that will inflame the situation.
In May this year, House Speaker Alex Tyler, the Senate Chairman on Judiciary Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman and others were accused by Global Witness, and later indicted by the Government of Liberia for receiving bribes to change the concession laws of Liberia.
All accused were later released on bill pending trial.
