Thousands of partisans of Liberia’s main opposition political party, the Congress for Democratic Change, (CDC) in their ‘BLUE’ today trooped to the headquarters of the party to hear from their political leader, Senator George M. Weah on his stance for the country’s presidency come 2017.
In their prepared statement to petition to their political leader to contest for the presidency in 2017, the executive committee and members of the CDC urged him to accept their petition as their leader to face the challenges at all cost in order to capture the presidency as their only hope to save Liberia.
This call by the executive committee of the party has erased media reports that modalities were been worked out between the CDC and other political parties for a possible merger, and that huge cash was received by the party’s political leader under the table to give way to those who report say were pumping in cash.
This rumor which was widely circulated like bushfire in Monrovia and its environs made many to believe that Senator Weah was engaged in a ‘419’ scan to enrich himself from those who report said were chasing him for their inclusion in the party’s roll call for the presidency.
In his acceptance speech, Senator Weah thanked his partisans for the petition, and ensured them of his desire not to compromise his bid for the presidency.
Earlier, several speakers from the executive committee of the party used the occasion to criticized the Ellen led Government in what they described as its failure to meet up with the needs of the majority of the Liberian people, while the country’s resources is being plundered extravagantly are the detriment of the poor people.
