The Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties says he is more determined and undeterred through the use of the ballot box to make President George M. Weah serves only one term.
Alexander Cummings, who is also the Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), noted that the violent attack on opposition politicians in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County is sufficient indication that he will run this country into another conflict if care is not taken
Mr. Cummings spoke when officials of the CPP officially welcomed him, along with his entourage at the headquarters of the ANC in Monrovia during the weekend.
The ANC is one constituent member of the four-members Collaborating Political Parties working to democratically unseat the Weah-led government at the polls.
Others are the former ruling Unity Party led by former Vice President Joseph Baokai, the Liberty Party headed by Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karngar- Lawrence and the All Liberian Party of businessman, Benoni Urey.
Commenting on the Zwedru violence, Mr. Cummings said: “we have the strong conviction that the violence in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County was created by the superintendent because we started receiving stones as soon as he left us”.
“We will be planning to go back to Grand Gedeh County again because the violence there was caused by a hand full of people who are bent on tarnishing the good reputation of the people,” the CPP Chairman said; adding: “President Weah needs to dismiss Grand Gedeh County Superintendent”.
Mr. Cummings noted that he is still planning to visit the good people of Grand Gedeh County before this year ends and thanked the Grand Gedeh Legislative Caucus for condemning the violence.
In remarks, Montserrado County Senator, Darius Dillon, said he will use his legislative power as member of the Senate’s Committee on Internal Affairs.
“We will never be the first to throw stones, but if they throw six inch block, we will return with an eight inch block and we will never turn to run because it provides them the opportunity to chase us”.
“What happened in Grand Gedeh County,” he went on, “will never happen anywhere in this country again because we are also resolved to protect ourselves whenever we are under attack.”
According to him, everybody would have died in Grand Gedeh County if it were not the intervention of God through the deployment of the Armed Forces of Liberia.
For his part, the Chairman of the CPP Legislative Caucus, Nimba County Representative, Larry Yonquoi, noted that it seems that some Liberians have not learnt lessons from the bloody civil war that occurred in the country during the dark days.
He noted that the will of the people will have to prevail regardless of the situation in which they find themselves and these politicians should be old enough to know what happened during the wars.
