Monrovia, Liberia – Representative Yekeh Kolubah of Montserrado County District #10 has demanded that President Joseph Nyuma Boakai be removed from the Unity Party. Addressing a news conference on Monday, February 5, 2024, at his district office on Capitol Hill, Representative Kolubah alleged that the party flag bearer would destory the party if he remained the face of the ruling establishment.
The District Ten Lawmaker described the UP political leader as a complete embarrassment to the party, stating the UP’s standard bearer is allegedly insensitive to the plight of the Liberian people. Representative Kolubah claimed that President Boakai lied to the Liberian people during the campaign when he promised equal county’s representation at the executive.
He claimed that President Boakai’s subsequent selections have been shown to be in opposition to the promises made during the 2023 campaign. “President Boakai has now turned into a major mistake for the party and the country in general.”
“The Boakai I supported and voted for in 2017 and of recent is not the Boakai now. Imagine people who suffered behind him, including Mark Jabateh, Melvin Cephas, and others, are no longer seen today. This is unfair. We travel through out Rivercess, Bassa, and our motorcycle even feel while campaigning for President Boakai. All I want is for President Boakai to do the right thing and not do the same old thing that we preached against former President George Weah. I did not beg anyone to vote for me, and those of you who are making threatening remarks against me came by yourselves to vote for me because you saw my stand as an opposition.”
the District Ten Lawmaker declared that, contrary to popular belief, his advocacy is focused on the interests of the people, not his own. He at the same time promised to remain vocal and speak truth to power until the Liberian people get what they deserve. Adding that his recent stand is due to the manner and form in which President Boakai is wrongfully proceeding.
