The Chairman of the Youth League of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), Mr. Jefferson Kojee, says the party will not be used as what he called an 'attacking dog' for other politicians to take state power.

The CDC is the leading opposition political party in the country.

Mr. Kojee was speaking Monday, April 14, 2014 at an intellectual forum in Monrovia.

His statement came on the heels of assertions by some Liberians that the party is silent on critical national issues.

According to him, the party is currently focusing on claiming overwhelming victories in the ensuing 2014 Special Senatorial Election and the 2017 Presidential and Legislative Elections.

He averred that plenty talking will not help the party.

"We have re-strategized our approaches to political issues not to just talk, but to reach out to the farmers, hunters and marketers in all of the villages in the 15 counties of Liberia to make our presence felt instead of just talking in Monrovia," he stated.

The CDC youth chairman asserted that those who are saying that CDC is now silent are people who have intention of contesting elections and want to use the CDC as an 'attacking dog' in order to damage the party's image before 2017.

The CDC youth leader disclosed that the party has decentralized its membership mobilization strategies in all of the 15 political sub-divisions of the country with key emphasis on Lofa and Gbarpolu Counties.

He further disclosed that the political leader of the CDC Ambassador George Manneh Weah is about to embark on series of intellectual forums and visitations throughout the country in order to share the new idea of the party.

He added that the party has trained over 3,000 intellectual brigades to help propagate the platform of the party.
