CDC is a conglomeration of three political parties. They are the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP) of former House Speaker J. Alex Tyler.
Speaking at a news conference held at the CDC Headquarters in Congo Town on the outskirt of Monrovia on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, CDC Chairman, Mulbah K. Morlu, asserted that news of ritualistic killings creates fear and pandemonium and as concern for everyone, the police must be robust to deal with these kinds of situations.
According to him, the delay by the police in investigating allegations of this nature gives propagandists the opportunity to spill lies through the public thereby leading to insecurity.
“We want to see robust police response. The Police need to be robust in dealing with genuine things. The police have to be very robust to ensure that our people are kept safe from criminals and people that raise false alarms. The police must be very smart in dealing with these reports be it true or false,” Chairman Morlu pointed out.
In a related development, the CDC has announced a nationwide re-launch of the party’s various structures. Mr. Morlu disclosed that the official re-launch, which will kick off on October 25, 2021, is under the theme: “Consolidating the Gains of Change.”
Chairman Morlu named Mr. Garbla Williams and Jefferson Tamba Koijee as Chairman and Co-Chairman of the ensuing process.
During the process, which will run across all 15 counties, Mr. Morlu further disclosed that the CDC will embark on a nationwide issuance of party’s identification cards and capacity building forum.
“It is time to leave our comfort zones and put our boots down to move from village to village, city to city, town to town with new rebranding strategies. It’s time to leave your comfort zone as CDC restructures. It's about to hit the road,” stated Mr. Morlu.
Some political pundits believe that the move is as a result of the poor result of the CDC in the 2020 process; however, he pointed out that the re-launch, rebranding and restructuring of the party does not in any way an indication of fear, only that the party wants to embark on early preparation as it remains the preferment of Liberians, especially the grassroots majority.
“We don't fear anything neither are we being threatened by 2023. It is a test of what you have achieved and requires the greatest political warriors to step out,” the CDC Chairman, among other things, added.
