Liberia Restoration Party
September 3, 2017
Honorable Members, Sympathizers, officials and Well-wishers of Liberia
Restoration Party; Distinguished members of the Press; Honorable Candidates of the House of Representatives present here today; Ladies and Gentlemen.
Exactly a week after our certification on June 26, 2017 by the National Elections Commission in order to participate in political activities in this country as a legitimate political institution, we immediately went to convention to legitimize our leadership structure and to choose a standard-bearer to represent our party at the upcoming October 2017 elections.
In seeking the interest of our noble institution and making it politically relevant (a paramount concern and interest we collectively share), the Convention elected Miss MacDella Cooper standard-bearer of Liberia Restoration Party with an overwhelming vote on July 5, 2017 at the Party’s headquarters here in Sinkor, Monrovia.
We were determined to work with Miss Cooper in achieving those noble dreams LRP has for Liberia, while at the same time supporting her political ambition despite her questionable fall out with Union of Liberian Democrats. Today however, that expectation of working with Macdella Cooper to achieve this dream of ours has become hopeless due to inconsistencies in her style of leadership, incompatible value system, ideology and many more.
Today as I speak to you with all sincerity, I must confess that a Macdella Cooper leadership is beginning to put us at loggerhead with each other, even at the executive council level, a typical characteristic trend of hers.
Today as I speak to you with all sincerity, a Macdella Cooper leadership has left LRP unable to pay her own rents, needless to talk about a single bicycle to run a campaign.
Today as I speak to you with all sincerity, a Macdella Cooper leadership has left the party with no means to support her representative candidates to run a
successful campaign. And today as I speak to you with all honesty, I must confess that a Macdella Cooper’s leadership has made LRP to default on her Convention promise to visit every county and establish effective working structures amongst our county leadership.
Two weeks ago, leaders representing 14 counties warned us in an official letter that they would quit LRP in support of another political party if executive officials did not act appropriately to save the Party from Macdella Cooper‘s Sweet-Talk no substance leadership illusion.
In view of the above, and in order to save LRP from total collapse at the hand of Macdella Cooper who doesn’t care about the future of this party, we the members, officials, sympathizers and 2017 representative candidates of the Liberia Restoration Party whose dream is to make LRP a household name in Liberian politics have decided to withdraw our support and loyalty from Miss MacDella Cooper as of today September 3, 2017.
We therefore appeal for calm as we work harder in saving this party. This party deserves all that is good and honorable.
Long live LRP! Long live the people of Liberia! God bless you all.
I thank you.
Rev. Alfred Gayflor
