(lbsonline/Liberia)-The Liberian Government has paid tribute to the late Grand Bassa County Senator, John Whitfield.

Vice President, Joseph Boakai, has described the death of Senator Whitefield as a great loss, not only to the people of Grand Bassa County, but Liberians in general.

Senator Whitefield died Thursday 17th January, 2013 at the Saint Joseph Catholic Hospital in Congo Town, suburb of Monrovia.

Vice President Boakai said: “The late Senator will be missed for his critical views on issues he thought were not in the interest of the Liberian people.”  “Senator Whitefield was a stablelizer and a unifier,” the Liberian Vice President further described the late Senator.

Vice President Boakai spoke Friday 8th February, 2013 in Buchanan, the provincial Capital of Grand Bassa County at the funeral of the fallen lawmaker.

He urged the Whitefield Family and the people of the County to remain united and take solace in the Lord.
