MONROVIA – Montserrado County District #10 Representative, Opposition lawmaker Yekeh Kolubah, has reunited with the Alternative National Congress ANC) and with the four Collaborating Political Party (CPP) after he suspended his membership with the two political institutions last year for what he attributed to crisis with the Collaboration.

Representative Kolubah noted that his returned is to assist in building a stronger opposition that will render the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) ‘a one-term’ regime at the polls in 2023 where the opposition is poised to unseat President George Manneh Weah.

Announcing his returned to the ANC and CPP yesterday at a news conference in Monrovia, Rep. Kolubah said it is based on the anger expressed by Liberians that the regime of President Weah has failed them he sees the CPP the best alternative for the nation’s highest seat.

“I announce today the reactivation of my membership with the ANC and the CPP; [the people] look up to the CPP for good leadership that will bring prosperity to the land and the people of Liberia”.

The tough-talking Representative Kolubah said the CPP will hold together to make President a one term President, adding that his return would further assist to reunite the CPP.

It can be recalled that the lawmaker suspended his membership with the Collaborating Political Parties last year, after he resigned from the pressure group Council of Patriots (COP) which is backed by the opposition bloc.

Representative Kolubah called a press conference yesterday, February 2, at his Old Road District #10 Office to announce his return to ANC and CPP. The Representative also expressed his dismay over how his rights are being denied him on instruction of President Weah, who he said, has failed the Liberian people.

Kolubah indicated that because of his advocacy for the majority of Liberians, the ruling establishment is denying him of his rights as a lawmaker. “We will keep fighting for our people. And I believe the CPP will succeed,” he further said, adding that it is just a matter of time for it to happen.

“After suspending my membership, I am done. That’s how I do my things,’ Kolubah told a press conference on 20 April last year when he suspended his membership.

However, Represent Kolubah told his audience that that he is coming to help unit the CPP tor enable them to resolve the in-fight in the country’s biggest opposition bloc.

The lawmaker also spoke of an alleged intimations recently meted against him at the Robert International Airport (RIA) in Margibi County when the port authority locked his car after he arrived in Liberia.

He then called on the ECOWAS and the rest of the international community to take action against the government for the attacks on him as a peaceful citizen and legislator.
