Members of the Liberian National Bar Association (LNBA) are expected hold their quarterly assembly in Fish Town, River Gee County this weekend.
Speaking to the INQUIRER in Fish Town, River Gee County Superintendent, Daniel G. Johnson, explained that the city is in high gear to hosting this year’s convention as a way of showing their own appreciation to the legal body that are rendering sacrificial services to the nation and its people at large.
He further stated that due to the importance attached to this gathering, the county has organized a traditional banquet to suit the week long ceremony which he said will boost the image of the county.
“We are fully aware of the kind services these lawyers are rendering in the country, most especially, during the time the country is emerging from its bitter past, the war and its sad effect that left scars to remember,” Superintendent Johnson stated.
According to him, his office has received the fullest support of the county officials to slaughter a goat to grace the ceremony as their contribution to the weeklong occasion.
For his part, Atty. Wesseh A. Wesseh who currently serves as River Gee County Attorney, buttressed Superintendent Johnson and acknowledged efforts being made in the county to host the lawyers.
According to the County Attorney, as a way of making the assembly a success each Attorney-at-Law has been taxed at least US$200.00, while Counselor-at-law will pay an amount of US$300.00 to cover the expenses that will be incurred during this year’s assembly in River Gee County.
Meanwhile, Superintendent Daniel G. Johnson has called on all citizens of River Gee County to fully cooperate with the county officials as everything is set for the hosting of the occasion which is pending for this weekend.
