The Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Mr. Alexander Cummings, has reassured hundreds of supporters that he will be vindicated from the state-sponsored criminal trial against him. He insisted that the charges are based on falsehoods and lies.
Cummings statement was in response to questions from supporters during exchanges at a community engagement on Friday, April 8, in the Samuel Dahn Community in District 6, Montserrado County.
District #6, including the GSA area and the Samuel Dahn Community, has an estimated 26,000 registered voters according to reports.
Mr. Cummings said the criminal trial relative to the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) framework document is part of the plots and schemes being masterminded by the government and cronies to frustrate his agenda for genuine change in Liberia.
Questions directed at Mr. Cummings and how an ANC Presidency would deal with the issues ranged from deplorable community roads, lack of employment opportunities and investment, the deteriorating economic situation which has rendered parents indigents, to the alarming drugs abuse and poor health care delivery system in Liberia.
Responding, Mr. Cummings blamed the deteriorating economic conditions on gross mismanagement and ineffectiveness of the national leadership and said also part of the blame is the poor choices of Liberians in electing the wrong people into power.
The ANC Political Leader spoke of the enormous God-given wealth and resources to Liberia and said it is unacceptable for the vast majority of Liberians to be living in abject poverty, while a few live comfortably.
On the issue of the alarming drugs abuse, Mr. Cummings spoke of the need for youth empowerment through job creation and vocational training, while at the same evoking the law to deal drastically with persons engaged in the smuggling of illicit drugs in the country.
The ANC Political Leader said Liberians need to change the century’s way of doing things and wake up to the realities that to change Liberia, to make it better and prosperous, “we have to elect people who are not corrupt and with vision to change the poor state of affairs.”
Mr. Cummings reaffirmed the ANC’s strong commitment to genuine change that will empower women and youths, lift Liberians out of poverty, and improve the living conditions of vast majority.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/defense-lawyers-state-prosecutors-baffling-cummings-trial/
