first_imgCongress for Democratic Change (CDC) over the weekend showered praises on the Liberian media, health workers and the traditional chiefs of Liberia for their valuable contributions during the height of the Ebola crisis.CDC handed the Liberian media the George Weah Peace and Humanitarian Award for their outstanding performance in giving full and exclusive coverage to the epidemic. The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) received the honor on behalf of journalists and media workers in Liberia. According to the Organizing Committee, headed by CDC vice chairman for operations, Mulbah Morlu, the honors presented, the first of its kind in the history of political parties was based on “the tireless and meaningful contributions the media, health workers and traditional leaders played and continue to play in the nation.”“Congratulations for a meritorious service to our people and country Liberia with compliments of the CDC-2015 Induction & Honoring Program Committee,” the certificate reads.Receiving the awards, the National Traditional Council of Liberia Chairman Zanzar Karwor praised CDC for its exemplary action adding, “The first political party to recognize and honor the chiefs, owners of the land, means a whole lot and we are happy.”He assured the party of their support in resolving issues of disputes and other political matters, noting that the doors of the owners of the land will always be opened for any engagement.On behalf of the Press Union of Liberia, Reporters’ Association of Liberia (RAL) president Keith Morris lauded CDC for the honor, stressing that “the media sees this as a positive step in fostering partnership and collaboration with all stakeholders in the political arena of our country.”“This honor does not mean the media will not report on or about the CDC when it goes wrong. Recognizing the media at this time sends a signal that the Liberian media is developing and is up to the task,” Morris said.He encouraged political institutions and individuals to fight to protect and maintain this level of tolerance and democracy that the nation enjoys at the moment, and cautioned them about the danger of slipping off that path.The honoring program was part of the US$1 rally CDC conducted to raise funds for the party’s nationwide headquarters project.CDC anticipated raising US$100,000 to construct sub-offices in the 15 political sub-divisions of the country to enable the party to keep its presence alive, particularly for the 2017 presidential and legislative elections.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
