PRP Suspends Top Party Officials


The People Restoration Party (PRP) has suspended several of its members over allegation of circumventing the party’s by-laws and constitution. Alexander Kollie, Alexander Gotoloe, Cooper Kollie, Lewis Woods, Reginald Simba, Momo K. Folley and many others were among officials of the party suspended for time indefinite.

   Addressing a news conference Wednesday in Monrovia, the party’s Secretary General, Decontee Jerbo, noted that following investigation the National Executive Committee of the party has unanimously agreed to indefinitely suspend their membership.

   The PRP indicated that the suspended members stand accused of engaging into acts that do not represent the norms and tradition of the People Restoration Party (PRP). “It is said that he who preaches equity must come with clean hands. It is on this basis that, as leaders who want to checkmate government, we must start from within our own party,” Jerbo stated.

   According to him, the disciplinary committee of the PRP acted upon an objection of disorderly conduct on the part of the suspended officials, which was filed by the party’s chairman.

   The National Executive Committee of the PRP, according to SG Jerbo, did not receive any excuse or formal letter from the suspended party members regarding their absence from answering questions of misconduct. “Now, therefore, it is unanimously resolved by the National Executive Committee of the People Restoration Party (PRP) that the membership of the accused be indefinitely suspended from the party,” he said.

    Reading the party’s official resolution, Secretary General Jerbo mentioned that Richmond Yarkpah will remain the organizing chairman of the party pending the national convention.

   Meanwhile, the Chairman of the PRP, Richmond Yarkpah, emphasized that as an opposition party and a government in waiting the party will not tolerate any unwholesome action from any member of the party.

   Chairman Yarkpah said, “We gather here today because of Mama Liberia. People Restoration Party (PRP) was established as far back as 2013, and was subsequently registered and certificated by the National Elections Commission.”
