By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah Morlu on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 toured the facility of the National Identification Registry (NIR).
Speaking during his tour at the NIR, Chairman Morlu said the process of the National Identification Registry would be useful for current and future purposes of the country including electoral processes in the country.
“Having toured the facility here at the NIR, we are too impressed by the achievements and the mechanism being put in place by a team of capable leaders working here at the registry,” Morlu said.
Morlu said the NIR has taken the country to what he called a pre-war era in a sophisticated manner, thus, this process would help the country in terms of fraud and other abuses.
“You have taken us to pre-war level in order for us to erode our system of fraud and not just that we have had continuous challenges of payroll padding and we think this is going to be the perfect answer to resolving some of these discrepancies in our country,” Morlu noted.
He believes that this process is going to be more effective should it be used for the purpose of elections in the country, thus, he is looking forward to holding a national dialogue in making sure that this process be used for electoral purposes in the country.
At the same time, the CDC National Chairman also donated hundred bags of Pro-Poor rice plus hundred thousand Liberian dollars to marketers of the Old Road Joe Bar market.
He said that it was the party’s own way of saying thank you to the marketers for electing the CDC to state power during the 2017 general and presidential elections in the country.
“For us as a party we have come to say thank you for voting for CDC in the 2017 general and presidential elections in the country. This one we doing here today we started it in all of the counties to say thank you for voting for us including those who did not vote us as well we say thank you for voting,” Morlu noted.
He clarified that his action to appreciate those marketers is not in any way suggesting that he has a political agenda comes 2020 or 2023 to contest for any elected office in the country.
Meanwhile, the CDC Chairman reminded citizens that elections are all over and it is time that Liberians come together and foster one agenda which is to develop the country for the good of all Liberians. TNR
