Former senior executive committee members of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) have pledged their support for Montserrado County senatorial candidate, Robert Alvin Sirleaf.
The former CDC officials include chief Budu Wilson, Jr., former national vice chairman for administration, Ms. Louise D. Karmoh, former national chaplain general, Sieh Blamo, former national chairman of the Youth League and Morris A. S. Swen, Sr., former chief of staff of chairman Geraldine Doe-Sheriff, among others.
These former CDC executives were expelled from the party after the 2011 general and presidential Elections.
Making the disclosure yesterday in Monrovia, Chief Wilson said having observed the political trajectory and national development agenda of the CDC over the years, they have finally decided in true faith, sincerely and faithfully to endorse the candidacy of Robert A. Sirleaf.
The group promised to carry out a vigorous campaign in Montserrado County to ensure that Robert Sirleaf is elected to ensure good leadership for the county and the people of Liberia.
According to them, if Robert Sirleaf is elected senator of Montserrado County, “We will see remarkable infrastructural development as well as socio-economic improvements not only in Montserrado, but throughout the entire country.”
“We would like to take this opportunity during this strategic and all-important declaration of support for such a noble and selfless candidate, to advise our fellow Liberians throughout the country to support (this candidate),” Chief Wilson, declared.
According to him, Liberians of all political persuasions and age groups must be reminded that election of our national public officials must be done with a mature sense of nationalism and not with negative rumors.
Mr. Wilson further cautioned that, “All of us true blooded Liberians must refrain from all gutter-style attacks on any candidate’s personality but rather we must look at the wholesome content of substantive national development issues to which each candidate is sincerely capable and committed.”
He stressed that the President’s son, Robert, will be a prudent senator who will no doubt usher in urgently needed improvements in this Ebola besieged country.
The former CDCians are calling on all former and current CDC partisans to join in supporting and making efforts to ensure that Robert Sirleaf is elected.
“We will campaign vigorously with all the necessary strategies to ensure that Mr. Sirleaf does not lose this special senatorial election. We will take to the streets and all other places in campaigning for candidate Sirleaf,” declared Mr. Wilson.
