Sen. Wesseh: CPP not in conflict
By Lincoln G Peters
Senator Conmany B. Wesseh of the Unity Party describes the current rigmarole in the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) as a healthy exchange, thereby debunking the claim from the public that the CPP) is in a serious conflict.
Speaking over the weekend at the 10th Anniversary celebration of Radio Bushrod 98.1 on Saturday, October 30, 2021, the veteran Liberian politician said most people who are mistaking heated exchange of political views as conflict.
“What you are hearing in the CPP is an exchange of political views, not conflict. What will come out at the end and bring the Liberian people true happiness that will redeem them from poverty and economic retrogression? Not all conflicts lead to destruction but arguments about ideas, policy, and decisions. We will make every Liberian smile after the outcome”, Senator Wesseh promises.
The Rivergee County Senator argues that in social life, every success is associated with conflict, therefore, there is a good side of the conflict.
He indicates that before a man and a woman meet to have a child that brings happiness, there was conflict but the outcome of their conflict which represents the child is the happiness for which people appreciate them.
“What we are fighting in the society is balance conflict that leads to destruction and death. Before, we could have a better democracy; today we have too many conflicts and it came to an end with efforts of the media”, he says.
Meanwhile, Senator Wesseh discloses that he is working with the President of the Press Union of Liberia Mr. Charles Cuffey to introduce a bill in the Senate, seeking to establish a national media commission.
He says the independent commission would protection of Journalists and that they will not be taken to court for their job or reportage.
“The media is an essential tool for building peace and promoting development. This is the media that was also used to make sure we have good and sustainable democracy today. They don’t produce balance conflict but always cautious our people about peace and democracy.”
The chief executive officer of Bushrod Communication Incorporated, (D-15) Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence expressed excitement to the management and staff of the station for helping her along with friends to maintain the legacy of her later husband, Representative Adolph Lawrence.
“My husband was one of the persons that had the highest scholarship in the country. There came a time his passion to provide education for all took his scholarship to 1000. However, I want to tell everyone here today that I will be launching the Hon. Adolph Akew Lawrence scholarship foundation soon. These sixteen students who participated in the debate here are going to be the first to have that school before we can officially launch it”, Senator Younblee Kangar-Lawrence said.
She called on the station’s management and staff to continue their good works and balance reporting, adding that she is gratefully proud of them.
