Cummings Vows To Audit, Prosecute Weah’s Administration, If…

By Bill W. Cooper

The head of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Alexander B. Cummings has vowed to audit and prosecute all alleged scandal and corruption practices under the Weah-Taylor Administration when elected President in 2023.

He said, “A Cummings administration will thoroughly audit and forcefully prosecute all of these ongoing scandals of financial dealings and stealing. We are determined to fight corruption wherever, and by whoever, will out exception, fear or favor.”

The Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) is a conglomeration of two political parties namely the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and the Liberty Party (LP).

Addressing a news conference yesterday, November 17, 2022 at his CPP office in Monrovia, Cummings among other things stressed that he is also determined to do to the fullest extent of the law, emphasizing, “Hear me now: no one will get away with the stealing and looting of our country.”

According to him, seeing the pains and neglect of Liberians every day in a country which he said God has blessed with so much natural wealth is something that have now compels him to fight corruption and end stealing in Liberia.

He explained that President Weah is leading the country increasingly toward hopelessness and waywardness and as such, no Branch of the Government, let alone the Legislature, should allow itself to be so used to achieve such dangerous ends for Liberia and its citizenry.

Mr. Cummings maintained, “Liberia deserves better. Liberians everywhere deserve better than to continue to feel embarrassed and disgraced by the lack of leadership of President Weah and his officials.”

“If there is any love of country left in President Weah, he will apologize to the nation for the shameful level of incompetence, ineptitude, dereliction and corruption that he has caused to swallow up his administration,” he said.

Commenting on the National Housing and Population Census, Cummings indicated, “It is also important that President Weah also apologize to the nation for causing a holiday to be declared for the beginning of the conduct of the Census which led to the shutting down of businesses and disruptions to other forms of livelihoods for Liberians, only to see the supposed beginning of the conduct of the census marred by protests across the country among others.”

According to him, the monumental failure to conduct the constitutionally-required Census knowing its importance to Liberia’s peace, security, democracy and development was all due to lack of leadership, poor preparations, scandals and other impeding issues, which led to many reasonably concluding that the conduct of the Census has failed disastrously.

He added, “As a nation, we cannot continue like this. We cannot continue to see our country sliding backward toward chaos because of the lack of leadership of President Weah. We cannot continue to see our citizens suffering while their officials, including the President, are conniving to bleed the country with their shameless stealing, wasteful spending and looting.”

“We cannot continue to have the President and his administration demonstrate gross incompetence to the point of dangerously threatening our hard-won peace, security and democracy,” Mr. Cummings intoned.

Meanwhile, Cummings has at the same time also called on the Liberian government to ensure the safety and well-being of the former LISGIS Deputy Director General, Alex Williams who recently alarmed on his Facebook post of his family being targeted by some unknown men.

“It has also come to our attention that the life of the family of the LISGIS whistleblower is being threatened. This government has a duty to protect all of its citizens. President Weah; inform your goons: let nothing happen to that family! We have seen enough mysterious deaths and unsolved murders in our country already. We will not permit anymore,” he noted
