Senate pro-temp Albert Chie has term the constant power outage and appointment of new management at the Roberts International Airport which continues to raise public outcry as National emergency.

Addressing legislative reporters, the Grand Kru Lawmaker said the Senate Transport committee will visit the RIA management not to only identify power outage but other challenges faced by the institution.

Pro-Tempore believes this challenge, among others, includes constant protests by workers at the airport are systematic issues that need to be tackled thoroughly.

“The RIA issue is not only human resources, it is not only power supply. We need to look at it as an institution. We need to see what the problem is and on Thursday there will be a letter on the floor instructing our Committee on Transport to visit the Airport to assess the problem there,” Sen. Chie said.

The Senate Committee on Transport is expect to tour the facilities at the Roberts International Airport ahead of the confirmation hearing of Darlington Karnley.

Commenting on the Lofa County by-election, Senator Chie said, the Senate will address the proposal by Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman which seeks to adjust the timing of the election in an election year and adjudication of election cases.
