MONROVIA, LIBERIA- Former Minister, Augustine Ngafuan, has resigned from the Unity Party (UP) with immediate effect.

In a letter to the Leadership of the Unity Party, Mr. Ngafuan said his decision to tender in his resignation was based on his prolonged exclusion from the party’s consultative engagements and activities.

The former Foreign Minister said:  “Prior to my resignation, I held a meeting with the Standard Bearer of the UP, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in late December, 2015.”

“I am leaving the party with no malice. I do not consider any official or any partisan of the Unity Party an enemy ; just as I do not consider any partisan of any political party or movement in Liberia an enemy, “Mr. Ngafaun emphasized.

Prior to his resignation, Mr. Ngafuan served as Spokesman of the Unity Party 2005 Campaign Team. He formally joined the Unity Party in 2008 and played an active role in the Party’s 2011 Campaign.

.While in government, Mr. Ngafuan also served as Director of the Budget and Finance Minister, respectively before resigning from public service in 2015.

Mr. Ngaduan is among several high profile stewarts of the Unity Party who resigned from the party in recent months, including Speaker Alex Tyler, Representatives Moses Kollie, Emmanuel Nuquay and Senator Oscar Cooper of Lofa and Margibi Counties, respectively.
