Rep. Kolubah Suspends His Membership With COP…
A ranking member of the Council of Patriots (COP), Representative Yekeh Y. Kolubah has with immediate effect suspended his membership with the group. The group founded by talk show host Henry Pedro Costa, have been strongly criticizing the leadership of President George M. Weah over the issues affecting Liberia, and hosted two of the largest anti government protests in Liberia.
“I am indefinitely suspending my membership with the Council of Patriots until at which time it becomes necessary for same to be reactivated”, Rep. Kolubah’s letter to COP’s Acting Chairman Mohammed Ali stated.
The Montserrado County District #10 Representative recalled in his letter of suspension, that the COP was established by likeminded individuals within the ranks of the opposition and intended to remain a pressure group to serve as a watch dog that advocates the upholding of the rule of law and economic wellbeing of Liberian citizens, something he said they have collectively done.
Rep. Kolubah however reaffirmed his opposition to the Weah-led government until it can use the available resources with which the country is endowed to realize what he termed as the ailing economy and give citizens a life of dignity.
“While I remain an influential member of the Alternative National Congress, I will be willing to join ranks with any other group of citizens to demand our government to do the right thing” He noted.
Though the thought talking lawmaker did not give any reason for his decision but said all members of the leadership of COP have demonstrated their love for country, adding that working with them was by far a rewarding experience.
