CDC Faces Internal Strife as Prominent Member Criticizes President Weah's Leadership
MONROVIA: In a recent twist within the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Dr. Lester Tenny, a key party executive, has taken a bold stance, accusing President George Weah of exploiting party supporters for personal gain and neglecting the welfare of the common citizens. In a Facebook podcast on Tuesday, Dr. Tenny expressed remorse for dedicating his time to the CDC, delivering a scathing assessment of President Weah's leadership.
He lamented, "I regret dedicating my efforts to a party led by President Weah, who, in my view, has become Liberia's worst leader." Tenny highlighted the alleged use of party supporters for personal benefit, raising concerns about the impact on the well-being of ordinary citizens.
Interestingly, Dr. Tenny disclosed that President Weah won't seek reelection on the Cdc ticket in the 2029 presidential race. He attributed this decision to what he described as the incumbent's detrimental leadership style. This revelation comes in the aftermath of President Weah attributing the party's defeat in the 2023 presidential runoff to its leadership.
About President Weah's concession speech on November 14, 2023, Dr. Tenny emphasized, "The tone of the concession speech strongly suggests that he has no intention of pursuing the Liberian presidency in future elections."
This announcement adds fuel to the growing criticism of Weah's leadership; however, the internal strife within the CDC raises questions about the party's future direction and cohesion. As Dr. Tenny's remarks continue to reverberate within political circles, the spotlight is now on how the party will navigate these challenges and what impact it may have on Liberia's political landscape.
This internal dissent may signal a broader dissatisfaction within the CDC and could potentially influence the dynamics of Liberian politics. The accusations made by Dr. Tenny shed light on alleged improprieties that, if substantiated, could tarnish the party's reputation and influence public opinion.
President Weah's response to these accusations is keenly awaited, as it will undoubtedly shape the narrative surrounding the CDC's internal dynamics. The party faces the critical task of addressing these concerns transparently to maintain the trust of its supporters and the broader electorate.
