One time fearless chairman of Liberia's main opposition, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has resigned citing grave allegations for her departure.

'You will agree with me, no doubt, that the purpose for which we founded this once noble party has lost. Our goal was to form an institution with the sole purpose to emancipate our people, the downtrodden included, from the dungeon of poverty to the celestial heights of a decent life through participatory democracy' the former Chairman letter addressed to the Secretary general, Nathaniel McGill stated.

The party has been going through serious controversy lately with statements coming from the current Chairman that the sole intent for which the party was created is to make Amb. George Weah President.

This, others including a script from the Senator differed with ' Mr. Secretary General, as it is, we will never achieve this initial goal with the imperialistic tenets currently entrenched in the party.'

She told the news conference that the action of Chairman Solo, her former party is a total disservice to the aims and objectives for which the party was established.
She told the jammed press conference that she had made frantic efforts to reconcile the party to the extend getting bodily wounded to no avail.

'We have made several attempts to change this course internally, but all of our efforts proved futile as I even suffered physical harm as a result of my stance in reconciling the country while serving as chairman of the party,' she noted.

Her resignation Thursday creates deep hole in the party as another senator, Joyce Musu Freeman Sumo, who watched the conference has revealed she will also resign shortly but has currently written the National Election Commission that she will contest as Independent candidate in the 2014 senatorial election.

The CDC is likely to lose her key players in the Liberian senate which might have the grass root party limited voice in the upper house.

Secretary General

Dear Mr. McGill:
REF: RESIGNATION FROM THE CONGRESS FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE (CDC)

 I present to you and members of your Executive Committee my sincere compliments and with a very heavy heart tender my resignation as member of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC).

You will agree with me, no doubt, that the purpose for which we founded this once noble party has lost. Our goal was to form an institution with the sole purpose to emancipate our people, the downtrodden included, from the dungeon of poverty to the celestial heights of a decent life through participatory democracy.

Mr. Secretary General, as it is, we will never achieve this initial goal with the imperialistic tenets currently entrenched in the party.

We have made several attempts to change this course internally, but all of our efforts proved futile as I even suffered physical harm as a result of my stance in reconciling the country while serving as chairman of the party.

Nevertheless, I thank you all so kindly, especially the ordinary Cdcians for the opportunity to have served as chairman and the many moments shared together in the party.

I will miss all of those precious times but what is most important, is our country Liberia.

On this note, I humbly beg to part ways in peace and wish the party well in all that you endeavor for the future.
May God bless you all.

Yours truly,
"MUN YAN"

Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff
Chairman Emeritus & Founding Member
Congress for Democratic Change
