MONROVIA – In what was described as a “final showdown”, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) demonstrated for the second time this election season, its enormous support base and numerical strength
in Montserrado County.
Pundits say that Friday’s event which was held at the ATS Stadium and the Party’s main Headquarters in Congo Town, was more blissful than the one held on August 19th, 2017 when the party officially launched her campaign activities ahead of the elections.
Despite an ultimatum issued by all Government agencies and ministries mandating their workers to stay at work or risk being sacked, thousands of partisans demonstrated their passion and love for the party across the populous city of Monrovia and her environs.
Both the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) and the Party’s Headquarters were filled beyond capacity. At the ATS, all the wings besides the one considered as outdated by Environmental Engineers, were jam-packed by partisans who defiled the heavy downpour to grace the occasion. Both Senator George M. Weah, Leader of the CDC and his running mate Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor were greeted by a jubilant crowd upon arrival.
As cheers engulfed the mini stadium, Sen. Howard-Taylor admonished all partisans to vote for the CDC leader and all legislative candidates running on the ticket of the party.
On his part, Sen. Weah thanked the jubilant crowd for once again demonstrating their love and commitment for his Presidential bid. The Montserrado County lawmaker said by the turn out, the people have again showcased to the world that the party remains the “true owner” of the county. He reiterated that Liberians will be liberated from their economic hardship during his presidency, noting that he will be exemplary leader.
Sen. Weah who had just returned from a tour in the Southeastern counties of the country where thousands of Liberians showered him with love and support, also called on his party supporters to turn out in their numbers on poll day, Tuesday, October 10, 2017, and exercise their franchise by electing him to the presidency.
