Yekeh Koluba Petitioned For Montserrado Race
A group known as Concerned Citizens of Montserrado County has petitioned Representative Yekeh Y. Kolubah of Montserrado County to contest the pending Montserrado County Senatorial by-election.
According to the spokesman of the group, David Gouowon, Representative Kolubah has embarked on several meaningful initiatives since his ascendency as Representative of District #10 in Montserrado County.
Mr. Gouowon indicated that the lawmaker has ensured that the markets in the district are cleaned every Sunday, markets electrification and financial assistance to organizations, drastic closure of ghettos in collaboration with the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA) including the Liberia National Police (LNP), among others.
He asserted that Representative Kolubah has passion for the motherland, which is Liberia and stated that he should not be limited to a district, but to represent the people at the county level at the Legislature.
He disclosed that the Concerned Citizens want him to contest as an independent candidate and that there is no doubt that he will be elected as the next Senator of Montserrado County.
Mr. Gouowon presented the petition recently when thanks and appreciation program for the citizens of District #10 was held for electing him in the 2017 Presidential and Legislative elections.
Receiving the petition, the lawmaker thanked the citizens for
their petition, but he promised to consult his family before replying to their request as soon as possible.
He said the program was intended to allow market women in the various markets to play a mini-tournament in kickball to further strengthen unity among themselves in the district.
Meanwhile, the Political Officer within the office of Representative
Kolubah said the tournament was geared toward appreciating the people in the district.
Mr. Forkpayea Taylor maintained that the lawmaker will continue to work in the best interest of the people and the district to transform the living standard of the people.
Mr. Taylor noted that Representative Kolubah has been practical in addressing issues surrounding the district.
