-Nagbe Sloh, Yekeh Kolubah’s Resignation Faints
Deputy House Speaker, Prince K. Moye has labeled the announced resignations of two members of the House of Representatives from various committees as rumors and speculations.
Deputy Speaker Moye told reporters Friday, April 5, 2019 that the leadership of the House of Representatives is yet to receive any formal communications from both Representatives Nagbe Sloh and Yekeh Kolubah of Sinoe and Montserrado counties respectively.
His clarification was in response to question posed to him by reporters assigned at the Capitol Building regarding the reported resignation of two of his colleagues from all committees occupied by them at the House of Representatives.
Deputy Speaker Moye told reporters that he did not want to speak on issues that are not before the leadership of the body, but to the best of his knowledge, he has heard about the verbal resignation of the two lawmakers (Sloh and Yekeh), but that said letters of resignation are yet to reach the leadership of the Lower House.
He added that he is aware that there was a formal communication from one of the pairs, but there was an issue, an issue of misspell of name and that is yet to be corrected and brought to the leadership of the House of Representatives adding, once they are received, actions will be taken appropriately.
Recently, there were reports by the two lawmakers (Sloh and Yekeh) in separate remarks that they have both resigned as members on all committees at the House of Representatives due to alleged interference and dictatorial posture on the part of Speaker Bhofal Chambers.
Speaker Chambers recently refused to accept one of the letters of resignation on ground that his name was misspelled, something Representative Yekeh Kolubah has since refused to correct questioning the nationality of the Speaker while at the same time alleging that the Speaker is using a borrowed name.
