Rev. Kiamu: CPP lacks the ability to govern Liberia
The organizing chairman of the Democratic People’s Party of Liberia (DPPL) Rev. David Kiamu, says officials of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) lack the ability to govern Liberia because they have failed to properly manage the CPP, which he describes as the only hope for Liberians.
Rev. Kiamu observes that the CPP is lagging behind in public trust and wholeness of team spirit to guarantee voters that it will win the 2023 presidential election.
The CPP is a collaboration of four opposition political parties that comprises the Unity Party (UP), the All-Liberian Party (UP), Liberty Party (LP) and the Alternative National Congress, for the sole purpose of amalgamating forces and resources to defeat President George Weah and his governing CDC.
The effort experienced its first strength as a formidable opposition force during the 2020 Special Senatorial Election in which its candidates won majority seats in the Legislature.
However, the collaboration plunged into a series of internal wrangling shortly after, ranging from allegations of tampering with the CPP Framework Document, formation of blocs within the Collaboration, and allegations of blatant violation of said document and deviation from the principles of accountability.
Appearing on OK FM on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, Rev. Kaimu called on Liberians to instead focus and support the Democratic People’s Party of Liberia that will not fail or dash their hope like the CPP.
He says a DPPL-led government will declare war against corruption and prioritize human capacity development, adding that under a DPPL administration, discipline, rule of law, health care, economic empowerment, democratic development will become pillars of his leadership.
Rev. Kaimu continues that if elected president of Liberia in 2023, Liberians will experience one country under the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobs. Editing by Jonathan Browne
