The Political Leader of the Opposition Alternative National Congress’s Alexander Cummings is admonishing partisans, supporters of collaborating opposition political parties and every citizen who wishes to exercise their constitutional right through protest to be peaceful and act within the confines of the law.
Mr. Cummings said the ANC supports the rights of citizens to protest and to petition their government to address their needs, especially during these hard times.
Cummings said he’s aware that the prices of food and basic services have seen a drastic increase, significantly affecting the livelihood of the people.
According to Mr. Cummings, the level of incompetence and broad daylight thievery accompanied by deliberate impunity is unprecedented.
The ANC political leader told a news conference in Monrovia Thursday that in less than two years, Presidential Weah and his officials, while refusing to publish or declare their assets, have continued to amass unexplained wealth, build mansions, acquire valuable real properties, fly first class and private jets, all at the detriment of the suffering masses.
Cummings further said integrity institutions like the GAC, LACC, PPCC, LEITI meant to fight graft have been underfunded and broken down by the clear disregard of their mandates, while the rule of law is threatened by interference in the Judicial System, evidenced by the unconstitutional removal of a sitting Justice of our Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the former presidential candidate has informed the local media that he will form part of the protest.
