The political leader of the Congress for Democratic Coalition (CDC) Senator George Weah has vowed to take on Liberty Party (LP’s) newest high profile concert Mr. Musa Bility to get votes of Muslims across the country.
Weah throw out the challenge over the weekend when he spoke at a petitioning ceremony for the re-election of Representative Thomas Fallah of Montserrado County electoral district#5 in Paynesville City.
The CDC leader said he has already defiled Mr. Bility when they met recently at a close door debate in Monrovia.Weah publicly bragged that he is more Muslim than Mr. Bility, who he described as his little brother in the Islamic religion.
According to him, he is overwhelmingly convinced that he will sweep votes of Muslims here because of his numerous financial, moral and material assistance to the Muslim community over the years.
Weah also challenged any political party in the country to defeat the Congress for Democratic Coalition in 2017 because the coalition of CDC, NPP and LPDP dubbed “Coalition for Democratic Change” is one of the greatest wishes of Liberians, who are calling for merger of political parties as a way of reducing the over crowdedness of the 2017 polls.
He urged Liberians and supporters of the Coalition to vote governing Unity Party out of power by making sure to acquire their voter’s registration cards as a surest way to stopping the UP at the ballot box.
According to him, the UP-led government lacks commitment and determination to meet the needs of ordinary Liberians, saying “Just make me President so that I can do better than Ellen in 2017.”
Also speaking, LPDP’s Alex Tyler, NPP’s James Binney and CDC’s Nathaniel McGill respectively called on Liberians to support the Coalition for Democratic Change through their participation in the pending nationwide voter’s registration exercise.
They said by registering and obtaining voting card is the only means through which they can remove the current regime from power, stressing “your power is your voter card.” With the exception of Bong County Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor, all other officials of the “Congress for Democratic Coalition” were in attendance at the petition ceremony of Representative Thomas Fallah.
