Independent Legislative Caucus Warns Speaker, Deputy Speaker of ‘Hypocrisy’ in Salary Cut
Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah was in attendance, as was Montserrado County District #13 Representative Edward Papay Flomo, another newly recruited ILC member, who later excused himself to attend to pressing engagements. “We will resist and there will be a revolution if we find out that the Speaker Chambers and Deputy Speaker Moye did not experience cut in salaries and allowances as we have all agreed upon. The civil servants are experiencing cut; so it should also go with the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker,” Rep. Kiazolu said. ‘We believe that the Speaker and Deputy Speaker should have announced their cuts as the case in the heated debate in executive session. Rep. Attoh-Wreh briefly said the cut in salaries and allowances are a national endeavor and they agreed to the cause but, if the Speaker and Deputy Speaker shy away from the cause, there will be serious repercussions.
