MUSA DEAN AND SAMORA WOLOKOLLIE LEFT OUT IN THE COLD

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – The failure of Liberia Justice Minister Frank Nusa Dean and Deputy Minister of Finance Samora Wolokollie to secure confirmation from the Senate before the closure of the 54th legislature is indeed a setback for both individuals. They had hoped to begin their new roles as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and head of the Liberian Revenue Agency, respectively.

The confirmation process is an essential part of ensuring transparency and accountability within the government. It allows the Senate, which represents the interests of the people, to thoroughly vet and evaluate the qualifications and suitability of nominees for key positions.

Although Dean and Wolokollie made efforts to convince the Senate to expedite their confirmations before the end of the legislative term, they were ultimately unsuccessful. This means that they will have to wait for the 55th legislature to convene before their nominations can be reconsidered.

It remains to be seen how the 55th legislature will approach the confirmation of Dean and Wolokollie’s nominations. The new legislature will need to prioritize these appointments and swiftly assess the qualifications and suitability of the nominees to ensure that these crucial positions are filled by competent and reliable individuals who can effectively serve the interests of Liberia and its people.
