ANC Partisans Gear up for 2023

ANC Chairman Gould presents party membership form to one the the new members.

Ahead of the 2023 general and presidential elections, partisans of the opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) have begun gearing up for the exercise, ANC party chairman Lafayette Gould has said.

Gould’s comment was contained in his admonition to partisans, calling on them to hurry up and get all necessary jobs done to save Liberia in 2023, because it is going downhill under the CDC-led government.

Gould made the statement at the party’s headquarters in Sinkor, Monrovia, during the 2nd welcoming ceremony of over 45 “new members” ahead of the 2023 general and presidential elections.

He charged newcomers to work closely with the party leadership by encouraging other potential new members to join the party so as to transform the country from its state of backwardness.

“If you join this party, we will give you more than one form for the membership, because the ANC strongly believes that you have the power to influence other people to come to it. This will give us the necessary change that we all want,” Gould said.

He said the country is in a difficult time, and it is time for every Liberian to rise up and seek the betterment of the nation.

Mr. Gould continued, “Now we hear that the fishes have been auctioned, the second one will be the mountains, the next will be gold and iron ores. Before we look, there will be no more logs in our forests.”

Daniel Flomo Naatehn, Gbarpolu County Senator and ANC Legislative Caucus chairman, said Liberia is undergoing a serious crisis that every citizen has to sacrifice, because the governing party does not mean well for the Constitution and Liberians.

Senator Naatehn said the government does not respect the rights of its citizens, making specific reference to the debate involving the impeachment of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Justice Kabineh Ja’neh.

He said impeachment of Justice Ja’neh is a total disrespect to the law, which action undermines the Constitution as the organic law that governs the country.

Naatehn said the government has succeeded in canceling tenured positions of the various integrity institutions that were set up to hold the government’s feet to the fire independently, without fear or favor of the heads being removed from their various positions by the president.

He added that those institutions were also set to make the country creditable to the international community when it comes to corruption, human rights, and good governance.

Mrs. Meima Benson, business manager of Ricks Institute, in a response on behalf of the new members, expressed their willingness to work with the ANC, to ensure that the party takes over the country’s leadership at the polls in 2023.


  1. Senator Naatehn and his colleagues have been unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt why tenured positions shouldn’t have been cancelled by Weah. For sure, Naatehn and his colleagues should be ashamed of themselves. The question is this: Does it make sense to accuse someone without having a good reason for accusing him? Well, that seems to be the trademark of Naatehn and his colleagues. They argue that Weah shouldn’t have cancelled some or all tenured positions. But, there has never been a good reason as to why the tenured positions shouldn’t have been cancelled..

    • Mr Hney, can you give a credible reason why the tenured positions were cancelled? Given the basis for which these positions were tenured, whats the alternative?

  2. It is just sad,that people don’t give out prizes to the most corrupt goverment.Actually the ruling party in Liberia today, deserves the ” Black belt”j

  3. Mr. Davis,
    I sincerely believe that some, if not all tenured positions were cancelled because of a host of reasons. I will address that issue another time.

    Sadly, my question or concern remains unanswered. I am not sure whether you’re a proponent of tenured positions. If you are, could you tell us (meaning the readers) why tenured positions shouldn’t have been cancelled? Or, to put the same question another way, what are the benefits of tenured positions in a poor developing country like ours?
