The Leadership of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) in District Number 16 Montserrado County has extended its regret and apology to the National Executive Committee of the party for siding with Representative Edward Forh during his recent expulsion from the party.
According to a letter dated September 9, 2013 addressed to Mr. Emmett K. Reeves, CDC’s Acting Chairman for Montserrado County, the district expressed remorse, for not contacting the office of the Montserrado Executive Committee during what they called “the Edward Forh Saga.”
The letter under the signature of District 16 Deputy Secretary, S. Bonu Wreh and the District Coordinator Sarteh A. Sarteh said their action was an administrative error that has certainly been corrected.
Accordingly the District said it regrets any inconvenience its action may have caused the party and its executive committee noting that “this communication should serve as an instrument of retraction for earlier comments made to the press relative to the Edward Forh saga.
It can be recalled that after the CDC National Executive expelled District Number 16 Representative Edward Forh for the “you eat I eat saga”, the district sided with the expelled Forh at which time the party mandated that Mr. Reeves, the Acting Chairman of CDC Montserrado County to probe into the matter and put forth the county’s finding as to what led to the District Executive Committee position at the time.
In an interview with the INQUIRER, Mr. Reeves noted that the apology of the District 16 Executive Committee will be forwarded to the National Executive Committee of the CDC and noted that the National Executive Committee will now decide the fate of the district officials.
However, CDC insiders believe that the apology by the CDC District 16 Executive Committee to the National Executive will put the matter to rest and move the party’s work forward.
