Ya Kumba Jaiteh on Monday said she found a letter of termination in her national assembly letter box.
The nominated national assembly member has been fired by President Adama Barrow.
Reacting to the development, Ms Jaiteh told The Fatu Network she has not been afforded any explanation.
“This is even funny to me. I have no idea [of why I’m removed]. The letter is all I got,” she said.
At least 30 members of the National Assembly on Monday met to discuss Ms Jaiteh’s sacking.
“The president has no powers or authority to dismiss any member of the national assembly and that it is unconstitutional nor is it in the spirit of constitution to revoke the nomination of any member of the national assembly,” the lawmakers said in a declaration.
“The national assembly is therefore not recognising or accepting the purported revocation of the nomination of Honourable Ya Kumba Jaiteh and considers it null and void.”
