MONROVIA-Political tension is now intensifying within the former ruling Unity Party with the present National Chairman Amin Modad and National Secretary General Mo Ali’s positions are under serious political fire.

Dr. Luther Tarpeh, a close friend of the political leader of the Unity Party, former Vice President Joseph N. Boakai is eyeing the National Chairman’s position and the former youth Congress Chairman of the Unity Party, Amos Tweah is now eyeing the National Secretary-General.

Making the disclosure, the campaign’s spokesperson Noah Gibson named Dr. Luther Tarpeh as going to defeat the current National Chairman Amin Modad wile Amos Tweah ready set to unseat the National Secretary General Mo Ali.

Noah Gibson said, the team to save the Unity Party from the present leadership is going to ensure that   a strong political national chairman and others are elected in the upcoming party’s convention in Bong County.

Also speaking was   the former youth Congress Chairman of the Unity Party Amos Tweah  who disclosed that he will contest for the National Secretary-General and also contest for the representative seat in District #15 Montserrado County in the upcoming general and presidential elections.

Tweah further expressed disagreement over the fees for the various positions.

According to him, the registration fees for the National Chairman position of the Party during the convention  is five thousand United States Dollars, as for the political leader is seven thousand United States Dollars, the National Secretary-General is two thousand five hundred United States Dollars among others.

Tweah indicated that the fees are unrealistic for   a political party leadership when the national government’s Position at the National Elections Commission is not for that amount.

But the National Secretary-General told  the public that  the party will not change  the present fees emphasizing that those who are interested in vying for any of the positions within the party should accept it.

Earlier, this news outlet pointed out  that  the just-ended Lofa County senatorial by-election that independent candidate backed by  the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC),  Cllr. Joseph Jallah  who has been declared the winner by the National Elections Commission (NEC)  over the Unity Party candidate  Garlakpai  Kortimai; such result   is said  to dislodge the leadership of  the former ruling   Unity Party.

According to our source, the executive committee members of the former ruling Unity Party and other officials are not comfortable with the party’s National Chairman, businessman turns politician, Mr. Amin Modad .

Modad  was constitutionally elected  as National Chairman of  Unity Party  in September 2022  with over 62%  of the majority votes  thereby defecting longtime activist and veteran politician  of Liberia now current  River- Gee  County Senator  Conmany Wesseh  including others.

Our Source indicated that most of the officials and partisans   of UP   have been criticizing the workings of the National Chairman Amin Modad on grounds   that he is not politically strong.

Our sources furthered that he did not participate in the political movement of the party in Lofa during the recent by- election.

The source also disclosed that the party is preparing to go to a convention with the objective to remove the National Chairman Modad.

The source did not disclose  when  the convention  is slated  and venue,  but  indicated  that  it will shortly take place  before  the end  of this year.

With  the confirmation by Noah Gibson and Amos Tweah  has clearly shown  that  Unity Party’s present Chairman  is now uncomfortable to continue  with the trust  that was reposed in his leadership.
