The people’s Liberation party (PLP) says it is disturbed by recent radio statements made Jerry K. Kollie, former Chairman of the PLP Bong County Chapter, that chairpersons of counties were not in the know of the party’s decision to join the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and the declaration of support for President George M. Weah’s re-election bid. “It is also saddened to note that Mr. Kollie and others will choose to use the airwaves without firstly exhausting all of the options available to him and others before his mass publication that has put the party in public disrepute,” the PLP said in a press statement.
According to the PLP, “It is also unbelievable that Mr. Kollie and a few others who participated in almost all of the collaboration deliberations and agreed at the just-ended special national convention that the party be directed to the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), a decision that was accepted by the delegates attending the SNC, will choose to make such statements.”
Meanwhile, the General Advisory Committee and the National Executive Committee have resolved to informed the general public that, even before joining the coalition, our late Standard Bearer, Dr. Daniel E. Cassell, was the first to endorse the CDC in Lofa County during the special election when Representative Mariama Fofana ran in that election. “What we are doing is keeping the legacy of Dr. Cassell alive and making his dream a reality,” the PLP maintained.
Consequently, the People’s Liberation Party (PLP) has, with immediate effect, suspended several of those involved for time indefinite and to face the Grievance and Ethnics Committee for investigation and for their respective actions.
Those suspended and removed are Jerry K. Kollie, former Chairman, Bong County Chapter; Mohammed A. Bility, former Chairman, Margibi County Chapter; J Emmanuel Greene, former Chairman, Grand Cape Mount County Chapter; Oscar Holmes, Chairman, Bomi County Chapter; Evelyn Yarkollie Morris, former Chairperson, Nimba County Chapter; and Abraham Sirleaf, former Chairman, Montserrado County Chapter.
The party described the statement made by Kollie and others as untrue and lacks logical reasoning. “He should not be taken seriously because he did not represent the PLP at any level, and his action has the propensity to undermine the general interest of our party. This is sheer incompetence on his part and others. We are therefore calling on the general public not to do business with him and all those names previously listed,” the PLP release added.
