-CDC Chairman Describes CDC Government
By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Mulbah Morlu said that the CDC led government Monday, September 24, 2018 actualized what the country has been lacking for the last twelve years under the leadership of former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Chairman Morlu has described the government as been very tolerant, thereby allowing others to peacefully exercise their rights in the country.
Chairman Morlu indicated that in the past, ordinary citizens were not allowed to peacefully march or assemble as it was done on Monday when over several thousand citizens took to the streets of Monrovia in demand of the alleged missing 16billions Liberian bank notes in the country.
Morlu termed this action by the CDC led government to provide security and conducive atmosphere for protesters as a new day in the democracy of the country.
“we want to congratulate and appreciate President George Weah and the CDC led government that has succeeded in doing something that is dramatic that is departure from the last 172 years of governance in Liberia,”
He said that today’s action gives him chills when he saw protesters being guarded by state security; something Morlu stated has been lacking for the last few years in Liberia, noting that the CDC suffered from this action in the past.
At the same time, Morlu described the statement from the group to call on the international community and partners to stop sending aid to the country as wicked and unpatriotic.
He noted that President Weah would not rest in making sure that Liberia and Liberians are better by making the country’s case on the international scene.
Meanwhile, Morlu warned government employees who were part of the Bring Back Our Money protest of abandoning their job and that serious action await them soon.
