Liberia: Urey Warns Liberians With Money

Successful Liberian businessman, Benoni Urey, has sent a strong ukase to Liberians like him with vast financial backgrounds, not to throw their assets in the waste when it comes to the 2014 special senatorial and the 2017 legislative and general elections.

Addressing partisans of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) of which he is a sympathizer Friday during its membership drive in New Kru Town, businessman-cum politician Urey said the two epochal elections were done deal for the CDC and its political leader, George Weah.

According to him, the CDC and Ambassador Weah meandered for too long in the political wilderness due to all sorts of machinations, and noted that it was high time that CDC and Amb. George Weah won elections in Liberia.

"Ambassador Weah and the party, over the years, could not find its way out of elections of 2005 and 2011, but with the signs in the sky and the writing on the wall, it has shown that the CDC and Amb. Weah will not lose in the 2014 and 2017 elections," Mr. Urey said.

He is a long time known member of the former National Patriotic Party of Liberia founded in the 1990s by then rebel leader Charles Taylor who was elected president of Liberia during the 1997 special elections.

He remained a staunch member of supporter of the party until the most recent past due to seeming policy differences and other factors.

At the same time, Mr. Urey called on partisans of the CDC to hold of the membership drive by reach out in every home, community, village, town, city and the country at large.

By this, he said, the CDC should win members who will support it in the 2014 and 2017 elections to victory.
