Controversial Montserrado County District #10 Rep. YekehKolubah is warning of continuous hardship against Liberians if President George Manneh Weah doesn’t step down, urging the latter to leave office.“So the Liberian people need to wake up; this man needs to go. If this man don’t go, look the US rate will go very high. Bag of rice, I was in Grand Cape Mount County, one bag of rice, half bag is $4,500.00,” Mr. Kolubah told reporters at the Temple of Justice Monday, 30 September.
The Montserrado County lawmaker who has been quiet for some time while seeking medical attention away from Liberia, wonders if this is the way Liberians are going to suffer for voting President Weah to power.Kolubah told reporters at the Temple of Justice that the current debate on Capitol Hill in relation to government’s request to print new currency is merely a diversionary tactics deployed by the Weah regime to confuse the public while it simply seeks lawmakers’ endorsement.
“He has abused the trust of the Liberian people; he has disrespected the trust of the Liberian people,” Mr. Kolubah says.“My man, this man will step down man. This country here for him? What thing on the deed? It on it Republic of Gbekugbeh or Republic of Oppong? They say Republic of Liberia, you say you don’t want to step down? That his private property here to keep it in his personal pocket? He will come down,” Kolubahsaid.
At a time the economic situation has worsened in the country, Mr. Kolubah accuses the president of allegedly building duplexes in less than two years of his rule and having no interest in the Liberian people.“If the Liberian people say we must run behind him, we will run behind him to go. What [are] you talking about if he resists? He got power to resist where? What authority he got to resist?” Mr. Kolubah says in responses to questions during the interview.Kolubah says he is angry with the president because Liberians are suffering.The group that led the protest on June 7 in Liberia – Council of Patriots (COP) which Kolubah is part of, has already announced another protest due on 30 December this year.By Winston W.
