Rep. J. Fonati Koffa Speaker of the 55th  House of Representatives has threatened to shut down the House of Representatives due to the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning inability to meet the operational needs of the legislative body,  despite the latest budget numbers from the Liberia Revenue Authorities (LRA) showing positive performance. The Speaker expressed deep concern over the ongoing financial constraints faced by the house of representatives, whereas the house of senate is well taken care of and given every necessary funding intended for its operations.

Speaker Koffa alluded that members of the house of representatives can’t continue borrowing money from NGOs and banking institutions within the country, when there are funding within the national budget for legislative functioning. The speaker made these assertions during the 9th day sitting of the house of representatives, when the LRA commissioner General(Dorbor Jallah) appeared before the house to provide information concerning the status of the Country’s revenues generated thus far.
