Special Awards In Pictures

-Says Julia Duncan-Cassell
In recent time the issue of salaries and benefits awarded to lawmakers has continued to raise serious concern in Liberia as many are aspiring for the highest offices in the country.

Speaking to Internews fellows over the weekend in Buchanan, former Minister of Gender and Children Social Protection reaffirmed the need to revisit salary structure of legislature, executive as well as civil servants.
Julia Duncan-Cassell emphasized that salaries and benefits need to be restructured and looked at so that the legislature does not look more attractive while civil servant and executive are less attractive.
According to her, civil servants are in large percentage and covered every sector of government, noting that they are the police, teachers, and they are in majority, so the issue needs to be addressed
This, she claimed, should cut across the legislators, executive and civil service to put them in a better position after they should have left offices.
The former minister narrates: “I have attended so many graduations, and of all the graduates nobody desires to be a teacher because it is not one of those attractive areas; therefore, salaries must be looked at across the board.”
Cassell, who is also a candidate for the representative seat for the district #3 in Grand Bassa County, stated that no one sector of government should be of more priority to the detriment of the others.
She further indicated that both sectors shouldered even greater responsibilities; and as such they should be treated equally without any fear or favor.
