Monrovia – Liberian Senators are providing contrary opinions on calls by President George Weah to revisit laws on citizenship, property ownership, and law to make people of non-Negro decent citizens of Liberia.In an off-the-agenda discussion (informal) while the law is yet to be presented to the Legislature by the President of Liberia, lawmakers (Senators) were on Tuesday, January 30, heard in the chambers arguing particularly over that very sticky issue of dual citizenship, which the President highlighted in his State of the Nation address on Monday, January 29.
Some of the lawmakers supported the idea of making “white people” citizens of Liberia, while others kicked against the idea. But those of them who were seen supporting a white person citizenship disagreed with the proposal to give white people rights to own property (land).
