According to the Christian Faith Political Movement, Mr. Cummings is the “most suitable candidate” to replace incumbent Liberian President, George Manneh Weah.

The ‘Kingdom Legislators,’ along with thousands of other citizens in Bong County, central Liberia, including partisans, supporters, sympathizers and well-wishers of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), turned out at the David Kuyon Sports Stadium in Gbarnga, on Saturday, June 17, where they endorsed the presidential bid of the CPP Political Leader.

The colorful and well-attended ceremony was organized by former Bong County, Senator Henry W. Yallah, CPP Representative Aspirants, and with the support of the Christian Faith Political Movement, ‘Kindom Legislators, Incorporated.’

According to some of the program organizers, the Kingdom Legislators, Inc., established March 2021, has a membership of over 5,000 Pastors, Deacons, Vicars among other Christian officials who are based in six of Liberia’s 15 counties including votes-rich Bong, Grand Bassa, Lofa, Nimba, Margibi and Montserrado.

A spokesman of the group, Pastor Dominion O. Roberts, confirmed the huge membership numerical strength of the Christian Political Movement in the various votes-rich counties.

Pastor Roberts said Christians nationwide have responsibility to provide moral guidance, prayers and to help Liberians to elect good leaders and that after careful evaluations of the major presidential contenders; Mr. Cummings has “proven to be the best and most suitable” presidential aspirant.

The pastors spoke of Cummings unblemished and enviable record at Coca-Cola global, as well as his vast business connections and understanding of the corporate world, which they believe make him the most suitable to revive the ailing Liberian economy and create much-needed employment opportunities in Liberia.

For his part, former Bong County Senator, Henry Yallah, defended the character, integrity and enviable world record of Mr. Cummings and called on his kinsmen and citizens of Bong County to support the CPP Standard Bearer and Vice Standard Bearer, Counselor Charlyne M. Brumskine.

Ex-Senator Yallah indicated that Bong and Grand Bassa Counties “cut across as one people.”

He categorically rejected claims that Bong County has a political godmother or father with loyalty to a specific political party or individual.

Bong County has the third largest voting population in Liberia, with 13 electoral districts and 237,757 registered voters, according to the National Elections Commission (NEC) 2023 Biometric Voters’ Registration (BVR).

Cummings was accompanied to the endorsement ceremony by senior CPP stalwarts including Counselor Charlyne Brumskine who pleaded with Bong County citizens to reject the re-election bid of President Weah due to the worsening economic conditions of Liberians and the dire need for genuine change in Liberia.

In accepting his endorsement, the CPP Standard Bearer, Alexander Cummings expressed gratitude to the people of Bong County for the massive turnout and their show of support and solidarity for his presidential bid come October 10.

Cummings extended special thanks and appreciation to Senator Yallah, the CPP Bong County structure, and ‘Kingdom Legislators’ for the confidence reposed him and their pledge of support to his election as the next president of Liberia.

The CPP Standard Bearer expressed explicit confidence that with the massive show of support and solidarity in Bong, Grand Bassa, Maryland and other parts of Liberia, and with God, he is certain of his ascendancy as the next President of Liberia.

He assured Liberians, that with Counselor Brumskine as vice running mate, who he describes as an inspiration to young people, “we will win and have the mandate to change Liberia for the benefit of all Liberians.”

The CPP Standard Bearer said all Liberians irrespective of political or religious affiliations, ethnicity, status or creed will benefit from the country’s resources and have equal rights and access to jobs and opportunities, when elected President.

Cummings returned recently from a visit to Maryland County and other southeastern counties including River Gee and Grand Kru.
