The Deputy Secretary General of the Coalition for Democratic Change, Menipakei Dumoe, says Montserrado County Senator George M. Weah and CDC have resurrected many times than Jesus Christ.
According to him, many media institutions are in the business of writing obituary of the CDC and its Standard Bearer. On the Capitol Breakfast Show yesterday, Dumoe said it was widely believed in 2014 that senatorial candidate Robert Sirleaf could defeat George Weah with money and better organization, but in the end, it was the opposite with the later winning by 78%. Dumoe dispelled rumors that the political leader of the Liberia People Democratic Party, former Speaker J. Alex Tyler is leaving from the coalition; stating that the LPDP is on board with its coalition members and will work together to deliver a first round victory. Stating that it is fundamentally wrong for the media to base their reportage on conjecture and speculation, Dumoe cautioned that media should report what is happening, not what they think will happen. According to him, those leaving the party won’t hammer the party chances of winning the 2017 election, because when it was the Congress for Democratic Change, they have shown their strength in previous elections and with the commemoration of two other parties, they are even more stronger. However, he pointed out that there are negative commentaries about the CDC because they are the biggest political vehicle, the most potent and ever prepared party. The Liberia People Democratic Party Secretary General said the CDC is bringing new dynamism and expanding it territories. The tough-talking politician explained that CDC is the only political party that has met the standard set by pundits including president Sirleaf who said that there is a way for people who will collaborate for the 2017 elections. And with 159 days to go, the CDC is the only coalition with three political parties that appeal all segments of the Liberian society. “We have people who tasted poverty, who got the feeding of poverty and are working hard to give all the glorious opportunity to Liberians in the CDC government,” he concluded.
