As the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and the opposition Liberty Party (LP) tussle over the remains of fallen Representative Adolph A. Lawrence of Montserrado County District#15, the ruling party says the lawmaker’s passing will help strengthen officials and partisans of the CDC.
The Secretary General of the Youth League of the CDC Emmanuel Johnson says the death of Representative Lawrence is sure to bring strength to the Coalition.
Mr. Johnson, who is also an Assistant Minister for Youth Development at the Ministry of Youth and Sports notes, “Our hearts are heavy with so much grieve and pains for the lost of national hero, a senior member of the CDC, but we want to say that his death will help strengthen us in these times of bereavement.”
He made the assertion here Wednesday, April 24, at District#15 Office in Logan Town, Bushrod Island where officials of the CDC paid a visit to memorialize the home-going of the late lawmaker.
In a parade that began at the Freeport of Monrovia to the district where members of the CDC, sympathizers and well-wishers converged to eulogize the late Rep. Lawrence, who was a former member of the now ruling Coalition.
“We have come to memorialize our fallen hero; even though he’s no more but the good legacy that was left behind by him will forever live on, and no opposition should think that they can win this district for the fact that we lost Rep. Lawrence”, Johnson says.
He continues: “Your death will turn our bereavement into strength in order for us to reclaim District#15 from the opposition, because you died a CDCian and we are aware of the significant efforts you made towards our party.
Your death has reunified us; we will remain peaceful on the trajectory of prosperity, we are here today from diverse corners of our district, and we want to sign on this clear note that District#15 remains no-go-zone; our dominance will forever be proven, and there will be no room for opposition.”
