“I am here to ensure that the CDC don’t win the 2023 elections just how I was here and part of the 2020 Senatorial election as a member of the CDC but campaign against them to make sure CDC lost the Montserrado senatorial seat, so I will do the same in 2023 for the opposition because the CDC don’t deserve another six years due to rampant corruption instead of service to people,” Madam Kpor said.
Speaking to team of reporters in district 17 over the weekend, Madam Kpor said due to the high level of corruption in the CDC government she resigned from the party.

The District 17 aspirant further said over the last twelve years the people of district 17 have been yearning for good leadership and now the time is now as she avails using her expertise to transform the district through adequate representation.
