CDC Climaxes Huge Militant-Day Celebration -Stirs Up Enthusiasm In Opposition Community

MONROVIA- A number of pundits opine that much of the political and economic missteps or plunders that characterized the first six months of the Unity Party administration have come to pass largely with impunity because the opposition community was still nursing the wounds of defeat, or picking up the pieces or because others were snoring. According to these pundits, the biggest outcome of the three-day gathering of the Congress for Democratic Change is that it has breathed into the nostrils of the opposition bloc a remedial dose that would bring it back to life, become agile again and take its rightful position in the political arena. The Militant wee, they say, was not just for playing games and hooting slogans; it has also stirred up the opposition community and assured the rest of ordinary masses of Liberians that they are left alone under the wimps and caprices of the Unity Party regime. The Analyst reports.

Scores of committed partisans and supporters of the main opposition party, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) turned out en mass for three days, which began Friday, June 28 and ended June 30, 2024 for its Militants’ Homecoming and Reconciliation Day ceremony.

The CDCians, who braved the heavy down pour of rains, floods and thunder storms, gathered from every nook and cranny of Montserrado in their numbers Friday as they commenced the official opening of what is branded as the CDC Militants, Homecoming and Reconciliation Day ceremony.

Dressed in their usual blue and white, with blue burets to match apparels, the ‘committed’ partisans and their supporters danced and sang political songs, chanting slogans in remembrance of their active political days their party.

The program was graced by party stalwarts from officialdom, including members of the CDC Legislative Caucus, to ordinary members.

Party bigwigs present included Speaker of the House of Representatives, Jonathan Fonati Koffa; Caucus Chairman Nathaniel F. Mcgill; Liberty Party Chairman and Nimba County Representative Musa Bility, and National Patriotic Party Chairman emeritus Chief Cyril Allen, amongst others.

Delivering brief remarks at the occasion was a senior Member of the CDC and Speaker of the 55th National Legislature, Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa, who stated that no successful revolution ever bypasses a counter revolution.

According to him, the Mighty Congress for Democratic Change is in a period of counter revolution.

“We must issue to our partisans the necessary caveat that during the period of the counter revolution, unity is the most important point of the congress and of the party,” he urged his party members.

Speaker Koffa emphasized further that the strength of the CDC lies right in unity and in the protection of the ideologues that have brought them where they are and in the forces that have kept them here.

“And so today is a day that you have made memorable, you have stolen the show and congratulations and thanks to all of you.”

Also speaking at the occasion was senior opposition member and Nimba County District #7 Representative Musa H. Bility.

Bility, Chairman of the opposition Liberty Party (LP), reemphasized the need for members of the opposition bloc to rally and join forces to take state power in 2029.

“There will be temptations, but let’s work together and come back stronger,” he maintained.

Representative Bility hailed Speaker Koffa for his splendid leadership at the House of Representatives, disclosing that they (lawmakers) do have explicit and overwhelming confidence in Koffa’s leadership.

He affirmed support of majority of members of the House of Representatives to Koffa, averring that not even 25% of the 73 Representatives at the House would vote to remove him as Speaker.

He warned that anyone attempting to disrupt the Legislature would be disrupting the state, adding, “If they fire one shot at the House, they will fire back at the Senate and the Executive Mansion.”

Clarifying his statement further, Representative Bility pointed out that the Liberian people made their decision in the 2023 elections for the two big parties in the country to divide the government, with one to the Executive Mansion and another to the Capitol Building.

He stated that any attempt to change that agreement by wanting to change the election outcome would not be welcome kindly.

He urged CDC militants to remain peaceful and stand up for their rights, stressing, “Let’s respect each other’s views and remain in the opposition.”

At the same time, staunched member of a constituent-party of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Chief Cyril Allen emphasized that the program signifies that a new Liberia has been born, referring to it as a destiny of faith occasion.

Chief Allen commended the organizing committee of the occasion and dedicated partisans of the CDC for a job well done.

He reiterated warnings over alleged plans by the ruling party leader to remove Speaker Koffa, referencing the Bible verse: “Touch Not My Anointed, and Do My Prophet No Harm.”

Chief Allen criticized President Boakai’s performance over the past six months, alleging that he the president has failed to deliver and has surrounded himself with unscrupulous bureaucrats of the old order.

“President Boakai has surrounded himself with a bunch of unscrupulous bureaucrats of the old order,” he re-emphasized, urging the Liberian leader to do the right thing, as the people are suffering and need better leadership and deliverance from his much-anticipated government.
