Liberia: Bassa 'Falls' to CDC

As the campaign period gradually comes to an end, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led by its Standard Bearer George M. Weah has intensified its campaign activities across the country.

Ambassador Weah and team are crisscrossing the 15 sub-political divisions geared toward ensuring victory at the polls.

On Saturday, Ambassador Weah and team stormed the port city of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County where thousands of partisans, supporters and sympathizers turned out in their numbers to welcome him.

Although Grand Bassa County is known to be the stronghold of Liberty Party Standard Bearer, but Ambassador Weah pulled gargantuan crowd in the county.

As Ambassador Weah and team crossed the Farmington River, thousands of partisans and supporters were standing along the road waving palm branches in support of his presidential bid.

The citizens were chanting pro-Weah and CDC slogans as he drove to Buchanan.

In Buchanan, thousands of citizens turned out in support of Ambassador Weah, who they described as the right person to lead Liberia after President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

They said Ambassador Weah has over the years demonstrated love for Liberia, as such, it is time to give him the mantle of authority to lead the post-Ebola country.

Speaking during his campaign tour in Buchanan, Ambassador called on the citizens to vote for CDC during the upcoming elections.

He said a CDC-led government will provide better living conditions, health and education systems for the people.

Ambassador Weah further said his administration will create jobs opportunity and a good road network across the country.

He reiterated that his government will pay WAEC fees for all students.

The CDC flag bearer said change is inevitable and can only be materialized when Liberians go to the polls on October 10, 2017, and elect him as president. Senator Weah said the entire country is ready for the Change.

Ambassador Weah and team were received by former Grand Bassa County senator Gbezohngar Findley who recently joined the party.
