Matching Promises with Action!-CDC Opens Vocational Institute for Partisans, Enrolls 1,500 Youths

In fulfilment of one of the Government’s key development drivers, the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD), which among other things seeks to develop the human capital capacity of Liberians so as to transform their natural resources into wealth, the Congress for Democratic Change, one of the constituent parties of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change, on Saturday, July 16, 2022 held the first opening ceremony and students orientation of the Munah Pelham-Youngblood Institute of Vocational Technical Studies at the CDC Headquarters in Congo Town.

Serving as guest speaker at the occasion, Deputy House Speaker and Grand Kru County District #2 Representative, Cllr. Jonathan Fonati Koffa, extolled the Congress for Democratic Change for leading the charge to educate the youths of the country, noting that the establishment of the vocation and technical institution shows that the CDC is truly a political institution that prioritizes the transformation of the youths into productive citizens.

“Gone are the days when politicians only talked and there was no tangible impact on the lives of its partisans or those that believe in their ideology. The unveiling of the CDC Munah-Tech’s vocational training school, in recognition to an outstanding partisan to mold the minds of younger partisans, has certainly given us a reason to be proud that this is the place, this is the CDC we wanted,” Speaker Koffa beamed with joy as he proffered remarks.

Responding, CDC National Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu heaped praises on his party’s Standard Bearer, President George M. Weah, for being the driving force behind the Munah Pelham-Youngblood Institute of Vocational Technical Studies, disclosing further that 1,500 young CDCians are now enrolled to study carpentry, masonry, electricity, housing keeping, interior decoration, as well as computer science, among others.

Chairman Morlu said the CDC-Munah-Tech Vocational Training will be replicated across the country to empower the youth of CDC.

He further expressed thanks and appreciation to the Ambassador to Liberia, Iqbal Jhazbhay; Deputy House Speaker Hon. J. Fonati Koffa; Representative Thomas P. Fallah, as well as the Mayor of the City of Monrovia, Jefferson T. Koijee, for gracing the auspicious occasion.
