Report reaching The NewDawn from Nimba County reveals that 13 local officials of Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine’s Liberty Party have left the party to join the governing Unity Party, including county chairman Tony Gonyor.
Our Nimba County correspondent said the LP officials resigned because of what they termed bad democratic practices in the party. The Nimba County chairman of the Liberty Party Tony Gonyor told Radio Saclepea in Nimba that they left the party because political consultant Madam Edith Gongloe-Weh, is single-handedly running the party at their detriment.
According to chairman Gonyor, Madam Gongloe-Weh, ex-superintendent and ex-senatorial candidate for the ruling UP was making it difficult for them to neither see nor interact with any party official, including Cllr. Brumskine.
Those LP officials who crossed over to the governing UP include Charles Luogon, Zebeadee Dolo and Archie Saye Konah, mobilization chairman for Nimba. Others are Alphonso Dorkpah and Allison Quoigiah, secretary general.
When contacted, Madam Gongloe-Weh told our correspondent she has been advised by party officials not to comment on the report. Cllr. Charles Brumskine is reportedly scheduled to visit the county this week, but due to the disturbing report, the trip may likely not be possible. He led several senior officials of the party to the vote-rich county recently to its flag in Ganta.
