On the day marking his birthday celebration, CDC Youth League Chair for Electoral District #16 Chapter, Abdul Kanneh has called for the immediate retirement of Unity Party Political Leader, Ambassador Joseph Nyumah Boakai ahead of the CPP national convention.
Addressing news reporters during the weekend, Kanneh stressed that Liberians across the country want a young faced politician to battle President George Weah in the 2023 presidential and legislative elections in the country, and not what he described as an old car parked in the garage.
The CDC District Number 16 Chapter Youth League Chair further classified the Collaborating Political Parties as a disorganized political institution, noting that the Coalition for Democratic Change will only believe that it is anticipating a tough political battle when a serious and well organized political party surfaces in the country.
Kanneh indicated that although the CDC had learnt a tough lesson from the 2020 special senatorial elections, which brought Liberty Party and CPP’s candidate Senator Abraham Darius Dillon to the Liberian Parliament, but emphasized that the CDC has recalibrated and regained more strategies to reclaim all of its political territories across the country during every electioneering period.
According to him, Liberia is at the stage of what he termed as a monumental transformation as such, former Vice President Boakai must disengage from all political activities and with immediate effect retire from his quest to head the CPP’s ticket.
At the same time, Chairman Abdul Kanneh further asserted that both Senators Abraham Darius Dillon of Montserrado County and Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence of Grand Bassa County and chair of the CPP, will support former VP Boakai, while Liberty Party Chairman, Musa Hassan Bility will support a different candidate in the CPP convention.
Meanwhile, Abdul Kanneh, while celebrating his birthday, has identified with some old folks, including kids and over 600 underprivileged Liberians (zogos) worth over L$255,000.
During the celebration, Kanneh provided ten bags of 25kg rice to old folks, including the distribution of popcorn among hundreds of kids and hot meals and soft drinks to over 600 less fortunate citizens in Montserrado County Electoral District #16.
The Youth League Chair also donated assorted items to the Saint Paul Bridge Community Clinic to buttress the efforts of the health facility to providing adequate healthcare services to residents.
“This is the only clinic where even L$500 can treat a patient. We will come back when the resources are available on behalf of our party,” Kanneh noted.
He promised to always make said interventions in line with what he called the doctrine and footsteps of the CDC and its standard bearer, President George Weah, including Chairman Mulbah Morlu and Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Tamba Koijee.
In remarks, the Medical Officer of the Saint Paul Bridge Community Clinic, Dr. Julius Prowd, said these things are very important and the clinic cannot be run without them, promising to use the donated items for the intended purpose.
“When these things are given to the clinic, it reduces the burdens on patients, then we give them discounts,” Dr. Prowd asserted.
