“He has abused the trust of the Liberian people; he has disrespected the trust of the Liberian people,” Reprehensive . Kolubah said. He added; “My man, this man will step down man. This country here for him? What thing on the deed? It on it Republic of Gbekugbeh or Republic of Oppong? They say Republic of Liberia, you say you don’t want to step down? That his private property here to keep it in his personal pocket? He will come down.”
He said; “If the Liberian people say we must run behind him, we will run behind him to go. What [are] you talking about if he resists? He got power to resist where? What authority he got to resist?”
