The leadership termed it as false, misleading and a work of fiction that has no iota of truth.
According to a statement read by Gaiyeizohn A. Davis, Youth Chairman, CDC District 10, the action by the lawmaker is not only shocking, but it is a dubious act of desperation masterminded by the district lawmaker who allegedly forged signatures of few zonal heads to fabricate political support.
“After the exposure of the representative, the leadership commends the bravado of three of the five legitimate zonal heads falsely listed in the release for coming up openly to swiftly denounce such grave act of deception and falsehood. Henceforth, the leadership of the District clarifies that, the media's quote of '34 zonal heads endorsing Rep. Berrian', represents fraud and outright lies,, Davis said.
According to the statement, only five persons on the 'Berrian endorsement list' are actual leaders (three of whom have publicly denounced the fraud already) while only two zonal heads and the Secretary General remain compromised.
After consultations with the Montserrado Chapter's leadership, Davis said, with immediate effect, the district has relieved Mr. Alphonso Caine of his position as Secretary General of the district, along with the two zonal heads.
Reading the statement on behalf of District Coordinator Forkpa Mayango, Davis said the leadership of District-10 informs the general public and all CDCians that its entire Executives, Women and Youth Leagues, the Central Executive Committee and all zonal and branch heads unanimously endorsed the candidature of Mulbah K. Morlu as credible winner of the just-ended primaries.
Davis promised to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that Morlu is elected as the most viable replacement of the incumbent, former party member Berrian.
Davis further noted that the assembly of all leaders of the Coalition's tripartite convergence (the Congress for Democratic Change, NPP and the LPDP) demonstrates the party's consensus mass-based support, not just for Morlu, but also for Senator George M. Manneh Weah, whose election remains maximally paramount amongst the district's delegated priorities.
He commended the leadership of the party for the recent reconciliation jamboree to encourage all partisans in and out of District-10 to now move beyond the primaries and stand together behind Sen. Weah's first round victory strategy.
