As the friction of the December 8, 2020 senatorial by-election begins to steaming up all required political appetite that try the souls of those struggling to make a comeback, those hustling to retain their status, while some as battling to restore the political dominance and retain already threatened popularity, the Council of Patriots (COP) reportedly infiltrated by amazing power through its youth wing, has moved swiftly to abort a ‘political crack’ thereby denouncing a creeping separatists’ virus and has now squeezed such alleged renegades un the bus.
Despite quelling the mounting pressure, and taking the heat out of the still-to-be burning flame which has the proclivity to wage a diversionary war striking down the glory of cohesiveness on the part of the COP and to the added advantage of a power and an angry and desperate force waiting in the wind, the COP with the speed of mercury, has made known its position regarding working and staying with the Collaborating Political Party(CPP) immediately when its (COP’s) youth wind declared the suspension of its support from the CPP.
In a rapid response-like drive, the National Leadership of the Council of Patriots (COP) noted that it wants to make it abundantly, emphatically and categorically clear that it did not authorize the pronouncement made on August 31, 2020 in Monrovia by some members of its Youth Wing withdrawing their support from the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP).
According to a release, the National Leadership of the COP further informs the public that the Youth Wing did not then, and does not have the authority to make any such statement regarding the relationship and collaboration between the COP and CPP in particular, and other organizations or parties in general. It is the sole authority of the National Leadership to determine and decide with whom it engages or affiliates in the interest of the Liberian people, and not its Youth Wing.
The COP also wishes to reaffirm its commitment to the solid relationship and cooperation existing between itself and the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP). Accordingly, the COP National Leadership wants to assure all of its members in Liberia and around the world to be assuredly confident with serenity that the situation is well under control.
Meanwhile, a swift internal investigation has been launched to determine the circumstances that led to the unfortunate pronouncement. Upon the conclusion of this comprehensive investigation, appropriate punitive measures and deterrent mechanisms will be put into place in order to avoid a repeat of such an unacceptable occurrence.
