LIBERIA: Weah condemns Action of Cdcians Campaigning With Casket


The Standard Bearer of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), President George Manneh Weah has in the strongest terms condemned the action of some Cdcians who were seen toting a casket at the beginning of campaign activities over the weekend stressing that such action does not represent the hard-earned reputation of the party.

On Saturday, August 5, 2023, some Cdcians were seen parading wıth a casket bearing the photo of opposition candidate Joseph N. Boakai of the Unity Party.

The Liberian leader called on Cdcians to maintain their peaceful nature in the conduct of the 2023 Elections, stressing that such behavior doesn’t represent the peaceful and diligent partisans of the CDC.

The Liberian Chief Executive emphasized that Cdcians have contributed immensely to the maintenance of the peace and stability of Liberia and as such they should always exhibit a high level of political tolerance in the exercise of their constitutional rights.

He called on Cdcians as well as Liberians at large to protect and sustain the hard-earned peace the country is currently enjoying.

Speaking over the weekend at a CDC intercessory prayer service for the successful conduct of the 2023 Elections at the Eternal Life Christian Ministries in Barnesville, outside Monrovia, President Weah appealed to Cdcians not to repeat the action they exhibited on Saturday, as he called on the CDC campaign Chairman, Lenn Eugene Nagbe to manage the exuberance of the young people in the Coalition for Democratic Change.

However, the Liberian leader expressed optimism that Liberians will vote for the Weah-Taylor ticket because of the developmental records and initiatives carried out by his government in the first six years.

The Liberian Chief Executive maintained that the bulk of the initiatives carried out by his government has helped improve the livelihood of the Liberian citizenry, assuring the public that his government will continue to provide more life-changing opportunities once given the chance for the second term.

The Liberian leader highlighted the construction of hospitals in some parts of Liberia amongst many other projects as an initiative that will help foster his reelection.

President Weah emphasized that the construction of the 14th Military Hospital in Margibi County and that of the Emirates Hospital in Gbarpolu County as milestone achievements in the health sector that is contributing immensely in the provision of basic health services to Liberians.

Again, the Liberian leader underscored the payment of West African Senior Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) fees for 12th Graders as another deliverable that will resonate among the voting public in the country.

In the area of education, it is also important to mention the free tuition policy initiated by the Liberian leader for Public Colleges and Universities which has brought relief to struggling Liberian parents and has contributed to the astronomical enrollment of students in community colleges and the Universities of Liberia.

On that note, President Weah called on his partisans and sympathizers to campaign based on the many deliverables the CDC government has undertaken.
