Dreams Weah’s defeat
By Lincoln G. Peters
Opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) political leader Mr. Alexander B. Cummings has reaffirmed the Collaborating Political Parties’ (CPP’s) preparedness to make incumbent President George Manneh Weah a one-term president.
Mr. Weah is serving his first six-year term and he is seeking reelection at the polls due in 2023. Cummings, whose ANC party is a constituent member of the opposition bloc CPP, is also hoping to head the presidential ticket of the CPP to battle President Weah in the presidential and general elections.
But to face Mr. Weah, Cummings must first be able to win the CPP ticket ahead of Liberia’s former Vice President, now Unity Party standard-bearer, Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai has equally said he cannot accept the vice-presidential slot on the CPP ticket.
During a ceremony on Tuesday, 9 November 2021 when the ANC formally welcomed new partisans, Mr. Cummings insisted that he will defeat the Weah administration.
According to the ANC Political leader, the trooping of new members to his party is a means of opening the exit door for Mr. Weah’s ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
“The ANC is where everybody is somebody. We will make sure collectively that we defeat this government and bring back smiles on the faces of our people. They deserve better. We at the ANC believe in everyone and together we will bring real change,” said Cummings.
He further indicated that the opposition, when elected, will make sure that the jobs and opportunities that Liberians need will come to them.
He said he was excited to receive the new partisans in a party that seeks to redeem the country.
“Thanks for joining us at the ANC so we can be able to change the narrative of the country. We can make Liberia a better place for all Liberians, provided we can continue to make the right choice and decision as every one of you here have taken,” said Mr. Cummings.
Those who joined the ANC on Tuesday were Amb. Emmanuel Mac Russell, and friends, Topoe Village women Association, Cross Border Women Association, Amb. Testimony Stephen Vorkpor, and Friends of Issac Vah Tukpah, Jr., among others.
Speaking during the program, Amb. Emmanuel Mac Russell and Amb. Testimony Stephen Vorkpor said they have come to join the ANC because they believe it is the only true hope for the Liberian people.
They said the current unexplained deaths, kidnappings, and economic retrogression in the country are sufficient reasons and evidence to make the CDC government a one-term regime.
The new ANC partisans believe that the only alternative to save Liberians from backwardness is the ANC and its political leader.
For their part, Cross Border Women Association and Topoe Village Women Association in separate statements praised Mr. Cummings and the ANC as the home that believes in developing the capacity of women and giving them the voice in national leadership.
“We are here today to join a party that we believe is the only hope for the Liberian people. This is the party that prioritizes the development and explosion of women at [in] the decision-making area,” the women groups said.
“We believe that when this man is given the chance and opportunity to lead the Liberian people, things will greatly transform for the betterment of all Liberians,” they concluded.https://thenewdawnliberia.com/cummings-boakai-pull-and-haul/
