Rep. Kolubah Furious Over Constant Disrespect, Promises Not to Campaign for Opposition Unity Party
Monrovia – Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah has told a team of Journalist that he will not campaign for Unity Party (UP) headed by former Vice President Joseph Boakai rather, he will only vote for the opposition candidate as an opposition member.
“I have reached a point today where I want to make it clear to the Liberian people. Jeremiah Koung, don’t call my phone anymore. Dillion, don’t call my phone anymore. Going forward, I will not answer any calls. I am going to buy my ticket and leave the country on Wednesday, and I will return on the 14th of November to vote for the opposition because I am an opposition person” he said.
Rep. Kolubah claimed that his stance is a result of limited respect shown to him within the UP despite using his money to support the Unity Party on several occasions, but none of the senior members of the party visited him at his house, something he says is a complete disservice to him.
“We decided to stand for the people, but standing up for the people has been abused by our political leaders. People do not have respect for me. People do not know what I am made of. People think that I can be easily influenced by them,” Representative Kolubah said.
Rep. Kolubah further that: “Since 2017 until today, my uncle Boakai has never been to my place. We believe in the people, which is why we stood up for the people.”
Representative Kolubah said he bought six motorbikes with the hope of campaigning throughout Liberia, but he will not make such a sacrifice for the opposition.
“Respect should be given where it is due. Since you people do not have respect for me, I will not campaign for you. Mo Ali, I reject the appointment you made. When you want to appoint me, call me. Sit with me before you appoint me. You don’t respect me. I use my resources to ensure that the opposition comes to power, and you guys are abusing it. Going forward, nobody should call me,” he said.
Meanwhile, Rep. Kolubah is expected to speak to the press this today.
