MONROVIA – The Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Mr. Alexander Cummings says Liberia’s future lies in the hands of the youth, who constitute 65 percent of the voting population that must be conscious of electing leaders who will genuinely care for the citizenry.
Cummings said Liberia has abundance of wealth and natural resources, yet the vast majority lives in extreme poverty due to insensitivity of leaders who without fear, are plundering the resources and squandering the wealth at the detriment of its citizens.
He spoke Thursday, January 26, at programs marking the installation of officers of the National Muslim Students Association of Liberia in Monrovia.
The CPP Standard Bearer stressed the need for unity amongst students nationwide against electing corrupt and incompetent leaders who have over the years robbed them of a better future, and subjected them to extreme suffering and hardships.
Cummings further assured the student community of a brighter future through an efficient and transparent management of the country’s resources for the general good of all Liberians.
He said Liberia, with an estimated population of five million, is too rich to be in such a deplorable state, because of leaders who don’t care about the wellbeing of the citizens that elected them to power.
Cummings vowed to institute real change with the election of a CPP Government on October 10, 2023 through the democratic process.
Responding, Abraham Dorley of the National Muslim Students Association of Liberia spoke of the need for Muslims to advocate for the observance of major Islamic events as a public national holiday in Liberia.
