CDC Announces ‘’COMEBACK RETREAT’ 2024

The former ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) says it have begun to painfully witness trampled underfoot by the initial greed, misjudgments and betrayal of trust of what they termed as the already failing Boakai regime. 


CDC during a press release noted that, even though it is still too early to draw final conclusions, but "the adage from the eve will determine if the Christmas will be good", also serving notice to patriotic Liberians to forge unity around the CDC as the most viable grassroots democratic instrument of REDEMPTION.


 According to the opposition, face of his shameful, embarrassing and dehumanizing treatment meted out against his own people—unity party leaders, militants and foot soldiers who are sadly treated like ‘Plantation workers’ that labored only to supply the table of distant masters, Pres. Boakai’s insensitivity towards the needs of ordinary people and his easy compromise of the truth, risks sliding Liberia down a rapid moral and structural slippery slope.


"Subsequently, our country is now faced with a new level of fear and anxiety that leaves many doubting what tomorrow brings. Amid Liberia’s annoying Boakai problem and the different analysis of the challenges that led to his cold-hearted presidency, as a party - it is time to rise above blame-shifting, by coming back together quickly, strengthening and expanding existing alliances, and rising to the occasion to hold the regime accountable.


The CDC" Simultaneously, we can achieve this feat while rebuilding the mighty Coalition for Democratic Change and its collaborating institutions as LIBERIA’S ARK OF REDEMPTION."


The release further quotes the CDC as saying; "As we begin internal discussions with member parties aimed at reactivating the Coalition for Democratic Change’s framework agreement, the CDC takes this opportunity to thank all member parties, partisans, supporters and sympathizers for the unwavering support, dedication, and commitment to our revolutionary ideals, political doctrine, and grassroots principles."


Upholding these cherished democratic values even in the face of unfolding challenges, CDCians are encouraged to continue to preserve the badge of discipline and honor, building the courage to confront the brutal facts of initial bad governance with optimism.


The truth cannot be denied that the CDC, when kept focused and fully united, remains the most significant democratic grassroots political instrument of change in Liberia.


And while we celebrate achieved victories of both past and present, we are nonetheless cognizant of the deep challenges ahead of us, and in this regard have engaged in broad-based consultations from all levels of our party.


Henceforth, we are pleased to announce that our party, the Mighty Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) will hold a CDC COMEBACK Retreat, scheduled to commence from April 24th to 29th, 2024, in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County; under the theme-


This retreat will elevate an essential institutional platform to move forward in Unity, Strength and Renewed Momentum, they added. Additionally, it will also provide the space for constructive dialogue that resolves internal differences, and to promote unity and solidarity within our ranks.


The CDC of George Weah highlighted the ongoing crucial governing challenges as a country making it imperative that they as Party stand together as a cohesive force, united by a common purpose and vision for a better nation for all. 


Furthermore, Mulbah Morlu, National Chairman noted that the ‘CDC COMEBACK Retreat 2024’ will provide Partisans with an opportunity to develop strategies that will serve as a roadmap towards the year 2029, which is already being widely considered as The CDC COMEBACK year!


As the National Chairman of our Revolutionary Party,  I want to emphasize that this retreat will not be a one-way street, but a people-driven platform that will value your input, suggestions, and ideas. We recognize that the strength of our party lies in the diversity of perspectives and experiences within our ranks. Therefore, I encourage each and every CDCian to actively but constructively contribute to these pending discussions and deliberations that will shape our future."


The release also disclosed that the retreat will also seek to provide Partisans and sympathizers valuable insights in formulating national policy responses that resonate with the aspirations and needs of the Liberian people. By engaging in open and constructive dialogue, we can strengthen our party's position and ensure that our actions are rooted in the interests of all citizens.


I am confident that this retreat will not only strengthen our party but also invigorate the  collective spirit and determination of our Blue Revolution.


Together, we can overcome any obstacle and forge a path towards a brighter, more inclusive, and prosperous future for our nation.


Subsequently, my office, in consultation with the CDC National Executive Committee, has constituted various committees that will shoulder the responsibility  of taking us to the retreat; and I hereby ask each and every one of you to work with these committees in order to have a successfully retreat.


Once again, I extend my warmest gratitude to you at home and abroad for defending and holding steady the battle lines of the party.


In the coming months and years, there will certainly be attempts by unscrupulous  elements of this failing government to engage in a multipronged and multi-actor effort to actively hinder the unstoppable rise of the CDC. They will try, but will never succeed; so fear not!


While our primary mission maintains a guided focus of reasserting the mighty CDC’s national political dominance, be assured that not many understand opposition politics like we do. To the glory of God, backed by partisans’ support, we led and survived here during previous opposition years: hence we are familiar with the actors and know how to contain and hold them accountable when wrongs are committed.


As we look ahead, it is crucial that we analyze the political landscape, adapt to changing dynamics, and identify the most effective approaches to achieve our goals.


And as we prepare for this very important season of institutional renewal, may the period bring us together, reinforcing the bonds that unite us as partisans of the Mighty Coalition for Democratic Change-CDC.
