Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa, is expected to depart Liberia for the United States to grace the official ceremony marking the inauguration of newly elected officials of the Congress for Democratic Change-USA Chapter.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) and the general membership of the Congress for Democratic Change in the United States of America, commonly known as (CDC USA), invited the Deputy Speaker to serve as the Keynote Speaker for the Inauguration.
The Inauguration is scheduled for Saturday, November 27, 2021, at 207 N. Chestnut Street, Cheska, MN, and will bring together hundreds of partisans of the Congress for Change (CDC) in the United States of America and Canada.
The Grand Kru County District #2 Representative and Acting Chairman of the Grand Kru Legislative Caucus will speak on the topic “President George Weah’s Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).” The Deputy Speaker will then drill Diaspora Liberians on the successes and challenges of the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development under President George Weah.
