Liberia Needs Spiritual Transformation

- Cummings declares as he calls for prayers

The Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Mr. Alexander Cummings, has pleaded with Churches in Liberia to pray for the spiritual transformation of the country, and for its leaders to be conscious of meeting the needs of the suffering masses.

Cummings said spiritual transformation is critical just as Liberia needs physical transformation to create jobs and opportunities that will better the lives of millions trapped in extreme suffering and poverty.

He spoke at the 42nd annual session of the Gompa District Women conference of the United Methodist Church in Sanniquellie, Nimba County.

The five-day women’s conference, from November 9-13, 2022, held on the theme, “Bold to Lead,” is “aimed at developing, creative, supportive fellowship to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministry of the Church.”

The women’s conference later offered special prayers of blessings upon the CPP Standard Bearer in achieving his committed objective of ascending to the Presidency to redeem Liberia from the dungeon of economic degradation.

Mr. Cummings identifies with Dr. Norkeh’s family

The CPP Standard Bearer, accompanied by hundreds of supporters and party stalwarts including Nimba County Representative Larry Yonquoi, later attended the funeral service of Dr. Frederick B. Norkeh, held in Sanniquellie, Nimba County, on Saturday, November 12.

Dr. Norkeh, worked with the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company in the United States of America, before his appointment as Deputy Commerce Minister and later as Postal Affairs Minister, by former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The funeral service was attended by an array of several former and current Liberian Government officials, students, and the general citizenry of Nimba County, where Dr. Norkeh hailed from and also served as Chairman, of the Board of Trustees, of the Nimba County University.

Warm touching tributes were paid in recognition of Dr. Norkeh’s invaluable services in both public and private services as well as his humanitarian services to people and society.

Mr. Cummings paid a special tribute, reflecting on Dr. Norkeh, who he said was a close friend and one of top Liberian executives, who worked with the Coca-Cola Company in the United States of America.

Following, the funeral service, the CPP Standard Bearer met and held talks with 14 representatives of the National Council of Elders and Chiefs, Sanniquellie branch headed by Elder Robert N. Sehneah.

The CPP Standard Bearer’s two-day visit to Nimba County, earlier, took him to Sokopa Town, Kpain Town, Bunadin Town, Lao Chiefdom and Zahn-Boire Township where he identified with the bereaved families of eight persons who died by drowning in the St. John River on October 29, 2022.
