Liberia: 'Triumphant Entry'

The Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) appears not to be taking anything for granted as far as the race to the presidency is concerned.

Standard Bearer, Senator George Weah and his team of campaign strategists have finally entered southeastern Liberia, beginning with Grand Gedeh County on the last leg of their political campaign. After conquering Montserrado and other counties, the CDC strongman triumphantly entered Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County on Tuesday, October 4, 2017.

As news of the CDC team spread like bush fire, citizens and residents of Grand Gedeh trekked to meet the team led by Ambassador Weah. They were chanting pro-CDC songs and showering praises to God for allowing Weah in their county.

According to our correspondent, the jubilant Grand Gedians, most of whom were CDC supporters and sympathizers, assured that Ambassador Weah will be the next president of Liberia.

"We are tired with false promises; we believe that you can rescue us from poverty and eliminate the class system that has kept Liberia backward; we know you are capable of fighting corruption without discrimination", the citizens told Weah.

In his words to the people of Grand Gedeh, Weah called on them to give him the presidential mandate to liberate the country from abject poverty, economic degradation and corruption.

Weah believes that if Liberia is given to the CDC, there will be jobs, equal education opportunities and the availability of basic social services for all Liberians.

Ambassador Weah is now headed to River Gee, Maryland, Grand Kru and Sinoe counties before returning to Monrovia for CDC's victory march on Friday, October 6, 2017.
