…Cummings Blasts Critics
The Standard Bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) has lashed at individuals particularly opponents who say he is new to Liberian politics.
Speaking at the close of his rally Saturday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia, Alexander B. Cummings said those who claimed that he’s new to politics maybe right because he is new to corruption.
Cummings said he has never been involved or associated with corruption.
Addressing thousands of supporters, the ANC flag bearer said his government will deal with corrupt officials drastically.
He said corruption has over the years denied the people of Liberia better living condition, as such, he will not allowed for such to exist in his government.
“Today, you have shown to us that you believe in us…the turn out here demonstrate that you are ready for a real change that will transform Liberia…I promised that I’ll not fail you,” Cummings said amidst applauses from the audience.
He said it is time to take Liberia from corrupt few and give it back to the people who have suffered from bad governance over the years.
Cummings said when elected, he will maintain those good policies of the current government while the bad ones will be eliminated.
He told the jubilant crowd that after 170 years, Liberia deserves better, something an ANC-led government is prepared to do.
Prior to the program at ATS, thousands of supporters and sympathizers from various communities across Montserrado County were seen parading on major roads and streets chanting pro-ANC and Cummings slogans.
