Where have you ever heard about this being done politically in the selection of political leader for an opposition group? Where? This is what happens when a group of people listen to some little guy who just completed a degree or certificate program and still finds it hard to distinguish between ideology and real life experiences.Op-ed 

The Alternative National Congress: A charity agency or political party?

 

The Editor,

 

Is there any smart person in the ANC?

The disability gesture or advocacy program is good but to put a humanitarian gesture under a political mechanism just serves as a turned off and skews the undertaking. Mr.  Cummings is a nice guy and a brilliant corporate leader but his entire effort lacks a team of political and policy smart.

This man can’t win and will never win Liberians over if he continues to rally a think tank full of and led by people with impractical ideologies. Liberians and most people in general frown on political humanitarianism and artificial goodwill. Guys, detach your Humanitarian deeds from political maneuvering.   You can still find a way to link them without attaching the ANC label to them.

Politics is about strategy and being smart and experienced.  Stop wasting Mr. Cummings’ time and resources on what didn’t work and won’t work. Goodwill driven by politics implies that voters are insane or lack decrement. Trust me, this so-called ANC Disability Council or Program will cease to exist or operate if the ANC and its candidate lose the 2023 election.  I don’t wish that but I am making a point.

Have any of you ever heard about a Republican charity or Democratic charity in the US or a Conservative charity or Labor charity in the UK? These kinds of things or initiatives are run as Super PACs that affiliate either with the candidate or his party but operate independently of the candidate or his party.

You guys need to get your act together and stop wasting this good and well-intentioned man’s time, energy and money.  Mr.  Cummings is a serious man.  He deserves a good strategy to prepare him for 2023.

You guys need a real strategy, competence and experienced savvy administrating your entire 2023 strategy. What you are doing won’t work now or tomorrow and you will end up putting your aspirations and good candidate back in the same position he got in when your party chair in 2016 created a make-belief and a  ‘bubble’ around ABC such that the electorate became detached from him.

If you don’t develop and don’t have a clear strategy you are wasting the precious time of your supporters and followers.  And that is wrong. Another area you guys don’t get it is the whole idea of standard-bearer selection for the opposition ticket based on your so-called “Perception Survey” process which is causing wahala etc amongst you.

Where have you ever heard about this being done politically in the selection of a political leader for an opposition group?  Where? This is what happens when a group of people listens to some little guy who just completed a degree or certificate program and still finds it hard to distinguish between ideology and real-life experiences. Get yourselves together folks.
