Liberia: 'Final Showdown'

Thousands of partisans, supporters and sympathizers of Liberia's biggest opposition party, Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) are today (Friday) expected to storm the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia for what the party referred to as 'victory celebration.'

Officials of the party said thousands of the supporters will march from various communities in Montserrado County in pre-celebration for victory during next Tuesday presidential and representative elections.

Already, CDC campaign team led by its Standard Bearer Ambassador George M. Weah has been in the Southeast of the country canvassing for votes.

Our correspondents in the region said the CDC campaign team received huge turn out from citizens in each of the southeastern counties, who vowed to vote the party on October 10, 2017.

Ambassador Weah and team up to press time were still in the region but are expected to be in Monrovia this morning to participate in the 'pre-victory' rally at ATS.

CDC officials have already declared Friday as national holiday for those in Montserrado particularly in Monrovia because of the mammoth crowd that is expected to take to the streets.

At the rally, Ambassador Weah is expected to deliver his final campaign message to the people of Liberia.

He is expected to tell Liberians that CDC is the only party well positioned to give them real change that they have longed for.
