-CDC Chairman Tells Partisans
By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah Morlu has urged partisans of the party to be patient and remain committed.
Speaking Wednesday at the headquarters of the CDC in Congo Town outside Monrovia, Morlu said they will continue to champion the cause of partisans and ensure that those qualified partisans are employed.
“We will keep fighting for you because we respect you. I will not forget about you, every day the President goes to bed he is thinking about you,” Morlu noted.
The CDC’s chairman indicated that though they are fighting for partisans of the party to be employed, any member of the CDC that tries to do things on the contrary and bring the party to public disrepute would be dealt with according to the rules of law.
He stated that when it comes to the rule of law it is not partisan’s business, noting that everybody would be dealt with in line with the law.
Chairman Morlu made the assertion in reaction to a partisan of the CDC, McGill Samba who according to the CDC chairman is going around extorting money from other partisans and outsiders in the name of giving jobs.
“As we speak, there is a complaint before us from fifty-two partisans (52) and those complaints have been taken to the executive committee to be forwarded to the grievance committee for action. One McGill Samba is said to be in the business of collecting money from poor ‘CDCians’ and promising them jobs and there are already fifty-two partisans (52) who victims,” the CDC chairman stressed.
Morlu assured the public that the party would take some serious actions in the next coming days, thus, he prays that the grievance committee recommends punishment ranging from suspension to expulsion.
He stated that this is so because, the same thing the party fought against during past administration for the last twelve years (12yrs) would not be allowed under the CDC led administration, adding that the CDC would not shield criminals.
At the same time, chairman Morlu has indicated that the party strongly condemns the action by one of its members in person of Prince Blojay who recently stormed the premises of the Governance Commission (GC) purporting to be the head.
Meanwhile, a member of the CDC, Mohammad Golafarly has donated a one acre of land in the Thinkers Village area to the party for the construction of its National Headquarters.
