For Immediate Release
NIMBA PRIMARY WAS A BAD EXAMPLE FOR LIBERIA, & CONTRADICTS THE
“CHANGE” CPP PROMISES THE LIBERIAN PEOPLE
Monrovia, Liberia. Friday, September 18, 2020: The ANC has renewed its objection and rejection
to the results of the highly flawed Nimba County Primary. The ANC says its renewed objection to
the results of the Nimba Primaries is based on the Independent Review Panel’s report which
failed to validate the result and further noted the process as flawed and lacking credibility.
As a party, we cannot in good conscience now validate any such results by accepting it because our
colleagues believe we should do so in their interest. That our colleagues are resolved to impose
a candidate from a flawed and bloody process on the Liberian people to contest on CPP’s ticket,
makes it practically difficult for the CPP to detach itself from Liberia’s “business as usual” politics.
The ANC believesin fair and honest dealing, and cannot lend credence to a process which conduct
was a complete opposite of what the ANC stands for. It is unfortunate for anyone to expect the
ANC to accept the results of a process our candidate and delegates did not participate in for fear
of their lives or where bloodshed and violence was involved. If we must be an alternative to what
we wish to change, we must do things differently in the interest of the people.
The ANC remains committed to the CPP but will not participate in the usual “short-cut” way of doing things in Liberian politics. We have made several compromises in the interest of keeping the CPP together but will not compromise on our values as an institution. ANC is calling on other constituent parties in the CPP to be ready to accept change, if we are serious to change Liberia. Our promises to the Liberian people cannot and must not be lip-service; we must be what we are promising.
LIBERIA DESERVES BETTER!
