Monrovia – The National Executive Committee of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) today endorsed Cllr. Joseph Kpator Jallah, an independent candidate vying for the Senate in the National Election Commission’s announced bye-election campaign in Lofa County.
In a statement released over the weekend, the leadership of the mighty Coalition for Democratic Change disclosed that ‘After a careful scrutiny of the background, history, experience and progressive credentials of various candidates, Cllr. Jallah excels in prominence as the most prepared statesman to provide Senate-leadership in pursuit of its socio-economic, infrastructural, educational and agricultural agendafor the people of Lofa County.
Furthermore, the release noted, the party’s support for Cllr. Jallah is also influenced by existing commonalities he share with the CDC’s development platform, which prioritizes the interests of ordinary Liberians, teachers, students, farmers and civil servants alike.
While committing (to the Jallah campaign) the entire framework of the National Patriotic Party, the Liberia People’s Democratic Party, and the Congress for Democratic Change, the leadership of the CDC asserted that it became important to throw its full weight behind the candidate’s campaign in order to push forward the national interests of citizens, chiefs, farmers and students of Lofa County.
