The religious communities of our country have historically played a pivotal role in bringing our people together under an umbrella of peace, unity, and harmony – they were also a leading voice that brought an end to the civil crisis. That was the motivation behind my contribution to the construction of the worship center,” said the Political Leader of the opposition Alternative National Compress (ANC) Mr. .Alexander B Cummings, Jr. The ANC is a constituent member of the four leading opposition Collaborating Political Parties (CPP). The other members of the CPP include the former ruling Unity Party (UP), Liberty Party(LP) and the All Liberian Party (ALP).
“When I spoke at the Bongordou Mosque, I called on the Imam and all the worshipers to rekindle the spirit of advocating for the rights of citizens in the town and other parts of Liberia. And I concluded with this message: All religious leaders are expected to always serve as moral voices in our society. You must strive to live in an upright way so that other Liberians can emulate the good examples you set. You all know that God Almighty is just; therefore, we must all work to ensure there is justice for everyone – whether rich, poor, educated, or uneducated, Muslims, Christian,” Cummings panted out.
Additionally, the prominent Iberian opposition politician mentioned that they must remain vocal about issues affecting Muslims here and in other parts of the country and that they must also be vocal about issues affecting non-Muslims because whatever affects one Liberian must catch the attention of all Liberians. “ Kindly use your role in this community to bring everyone together. Fight for the weak and those that are lacking. You must always be willing to lend a helping hand. The prophets set good examples for us, so let’s set similar examples for our children and future generations,” he further urged them.
