Opposition Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah has reunited with the Alternative National Congress (ANC), as well as the Collaborating Political Party (CPP) which is massively falling apart.
Mr. Kolubah earlier suspended his membership with the CPP and its constituent party ANC last year, citing a longstanding crisis within the collaboration.
Addressing a press conference at his Old Road District Office Tuesday, 2 February 2022, Representative Kolubah said his return to the political institutions is to build a stronger opposition that will make the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) a one-term administrator after the pending 2023 presidential and legislative elections.
The CPP is seeking to replace incumbent President George Manneh Weah through the ballot box, but the opposition bloc itself is bitterly divided on the question of who heads the presidential ticket to face Mr. Weah.
Kolubah said his decision to reunite with the CPP and ANC is based on the anger expressed by Liberians over President Weah’s failure.
He believes that Liberians now see the CPP as the alternative for the highest seat.
“I announce today the reactivation of my membership with the ANC and the CPP. Liberians look up to the CPP for good leadership that will bring prosperity to the land and people of Liberia,” said Mr. Kolubah.
Last year, the opposition lawmaker suspended his membership with the Collaborating Political Parties after he resigned from the pressure group Council of Patriots (COP) which is backed by the opposition bloc, CPP.
The representative also expressed his dismay over how his rights are being denied on the alleged instruction of President Weah whom he claimed has failed the Liberian people.
He said because of his advocacy for the majority of Liberians, the ruling establishment is denying his rights as a lawmaker.
“We will keep fighting for our people. And I believe the CPP will succeed,” said Kolubah, adding that it’s just a matter of time for it to happen.
Representative Kolubah also spoke of alleged intimation recently at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) in Margibi County when the port authority locked his car after he arrived in Liberia.
He said he called on ECOWAS and the rest of the international community to take action against the government’s attacks against him.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/yekeh-kolubah-im-going-to-get-my-benefits/
