Cummings Speaks On Critical National Issues

MONROVIA – The Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Mr. Alexander Cummings, says public officials including the President, lawmakers and cabinet ministers should be held accountable, as they are being paid for their respective jobs.

Cummings said services rendered by President George Weah and officials of government are not free, they must therefore be demanded to perform their assigned task with diligence and commitment.

He said the prolonged absence of President Weah from the country, in the face of the worst economic conditions and huge suffering of the Liberian people, is unprecedented and cause for concern.

The CPP Standard Bearer spoke on a wide range of issues on Wednesday, November 30, on Kool FM Morning Ride program in Paynesville, Monrovia.

Cummings rejected claims by some callers that his consistent and persistent lashing out at the     President and officials for gross incompetence, ineptitude and corruption, meant badmouthing them. The CPP Standard Bearer said Liberians must hold their leaders feet to the fire, and demand of them, good stewardship in the performance of their statutory functions for which they are being compensated by tax payers.

He said the dismal performance of the President and his officials, compounded by the high level of stealing and wasteful spending, are the direct causes of the extreme suffering and poverty in Liberia.

He said corruption has eroded every fabric of the Liberian society, and undermines every attempt at attracting foreign direct investments, badly needed to create jobs especially for thousands of unemployed youths.

The CPP Standard Bearer said President Weah is staying away from his country, while, the masses are struggling and suffering, noting that Leaders need to set good examples for their followers.

Cummings said Liberia will not change by mere talking or wishful thinking, but rather through hard work, sacrifice and doing what is legally right.

The CPP Standard Bearer reaffirmed his commitment to upholding the tenets of good governance, vowed to change the country’s intolerable economic environment, and aggressively combat corruption irrespective of who is involved.

He said the CPP Government would ensure that civil servants, teachers, security officers and nurses receive better and improved salaries, while at same time, will impose the full force of the law on anyone involved in corruption.

Cummings said trade and commerce laws and regulations will be simplified for easy compliance and to detect any fraudulent acts in the system.

On the scarcity and rising costs of the nation’s staple food, rice, Mr. Cummings said it was shameful, after 175 years of existence, Liberia is still importing its staple food and far from being self-sufficient in food production to feed its people.

He said while, a CPP administration will invest heavily in agriculture, it will remove all restrictions and barriers including monopoly, maintain the free market system, adopt flexible laws to encourage more Liberians get involved in the importation of rice.

Cummings said farmers will be given incentives, granted access to credit facilities, and be encouraged to form cooperatives to buy seeds and fertilizers to increase their yields, thereby making farming profitable in Liberia.

Cummings said Agricultural students will be given the necessary skills,  training and needed finances to become gainful employees and live better life.

On rehabilitation of disadvantage youths, Cummings said a CPP Government would work and provide financial support to existing organizations and institutions including churches with appropriate programs that are assisting to rehabilitate drugs abused youths and transform them into becoming productive citizens.

He said those involved in smuggling  and illegal importation and marketing of dangerous drugs will be made to face the full force of the law to serve as deterrent.

Cummings said a national youth service program is under consideration that will provide life saving skills for youths in order to find employment and reduce their demand for dangerous drugs.

On the issue of the CPP and national unity of opposition Political Parties and leaders, Cummings said CPP is making significant strides in engaging partisans, mobilization of resources, since the breakaway of the UP and ALP.

He said despite the breakaway, there is need for political collaboration to ensure free, fair and transparent elections,   credible and reliable biometric system, and that the 2022 Census is conducted with great degree of integrity.

    Cummings, you are too corrupt. Nothing you can say will ever make the Liberian people to take you serious. As someone has said, you are doomed to end up with the fate of Charles Brumskine, who after years of being only for himself, and then been an accomplice of those who destroyed the country, he wanted to be President, but God brought in George Weah to ensure that Brumskine or his like never ever become president of Liberia. YOU ARE BAD NEWS CUMMINGS. PRES WEAH IS BETTER. WE OWE HIM A SECOND TERM.

    You are on criminal records for forgery, https://frontpageafricaonline.com/news/liberia-qatar-commits-to-financing-second-phase-of-gbarnga-mendikorma-highway/

    every activity within a political scenario or context aims at some strategic end. What is the end of that crap that boy and his desperate and frustrated Cummings,both of whom nobody respects nor trusts in this country is calling for? ABSOLUTELY NO END!

    Hence, no body has to divide any GROUP NOR AGGREGATE OF INCONSEQUENTIALS, ESPECIALLY IN SUCH VAGABONIC EXERCISE..

    Do you expect Liberty Party Proper, Urey and his ALP, or even Boakai and his UP etc. etc. to support or participate in such politically silly and aimless crap arising out of the frustration and desperation of Lewis Brown, Alex Cummings and Musa Bility WHO HAVE LONG LOST RESPECT AND TRUST WITHIN THE ENTIRE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT? NO!

    NOT EVEN ANTI ESTABLISHMENTARIANS, ANTI INCUMBENTS,NOT TO TALK ABOUT POLITICAL ACTIVISTS WHO HOLD MENTALITIES AS CUMMINGS, MUSA, BILITY OR LEWIS BROWN IN DISGUSTING DISDAIN WOULD EVER RELEGATE THEMSELVES AS ZOMBIES , ESPECIALLY IN SUCH DOOMED FUTILITY.

    We are social scientists. We know which personality or personalties people may unite with. Not even haters of an incumbent ever unite with such inconsequential political prostitutes as Lewis Brown etc, or political trollops as Togar Garyeaweh McKintosh, Musa Bility, etc.

    Wait for this December 17 of Lewis Brown, and you shall see simply desperate and frustrated Alex Cummings and his new found political prostitutes and political trollops as Musa Bility, Lewis Brown, etc.

    Cummings, you do not fit in our society. You have too much of rotten skeletons in your closet to hide. HERE YOU AND YOUR GANG HAVE TAKEN DOWN THE VIDEO EXPOSING YOUR ROTTEN GAY LIFE YOU WANT TO MOLEST OUR CHILDREN WITH, AND THE EXPOSURE ON HOW YOU AND YOUR GANG HAVE BEEN BUYING OFAC SANCTIONS AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    NOW THE PUBLIC CAN SEE WHY MICHAEL MCCARTHY WHO HAS BEEN BRIBED BY YOU PEOPLE TO IMPOSE SANCTIONS ARE UNABLE AND CANNOT PROVIDE A SINGLE EVIDENCE AGAINST THOSE THEY ARE ACCUSING. AT LEAST, THE PUBLIC IS NOW AWARE OF YOUR BAD CHARACTER OF A GAY LIFE WHO WANTS TO SELL OUR ECONOMY AND COUNTRY, SINCE SELLING STOCKS AND BONDS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU PEOPLE.
