LTP Denies Collaborating With CDC -Acting Chairman Suspended

The opposition Liberia Transformation Party(LTP) has denied media reports making the rounds that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change with the view of forming collaboration with the ruling establishment and has taken a decision to suspend its Acting Chairman, Patrick Saydee for the unilateral action taken to commit the party to the MOU without the input of the executive committee and the political leader of the party, Reverend Kennedy Sandy.

“Partisans, supporters and sympathizers of the Liberia Transformation Party (LTP), we the members of the Executive Committee of the LTP, want to take this time to address the news circulating around social media and various media houses that “The Liberia Transformation Party (LTP) together with five political parties signed an MOU with the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) that will lead towards collaboration”, the party said in a press release issued over the weekend,

The release said upon receiving the information on Wednesday March 30 2022, the National Executive committee (NEC) of the party convened an emergency meeting the following day to address the issue where during the meeting, the Acting Chair, Mr. Patrick Saydee was asked to provide clarity on the MOU signed with the CDC Party.

The party said that after the meeting, a committee was set up to conduct an investigation concerning the issue and it was verified and concluded that Mr. Saydee abused his office as Acting Chairman, and signed the MOU with the CDC on his own, and did not consult the Political Leader Sandy and the executive committee before signing the MOU.

“Conclusively, the executive committee wants to inform all Liberians, Partisans, and well-wishers of the LTP that the Liberia Transformation Party holds no malice against the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) or in any party.

“However, we distance our party (LTP) from the memorandum of understanding (MOU). As executive committee of the Liberia Transformation Party (LTP), and as the highest decision-making body of the body, without prejudice, do hereby equivocally and categorically condemn the action of the Acting Chairman as such action Does not represent the true attribute of the LTP And as his consequence he is hereby suspended from the position of Acting Chairman of the Liberia Transformation Party (LTP) with immediate effect”, the party said.
