Former President Moses Blah over the weekend reportedly received a shock of his life in the Commercial City of Ganta, Nimba County when he was part of a campaign team of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC).

Citizens who spoke to The FORUM in Nimba County recently described Mr. Blah as a traitor. “He failed to identify with his mother political institution only to sufface in the CDC where he is active running campaign”, says an elder of Nimba, Oldman Paye Gonleh. “Why couldn’t he (Blah) campaign for his own party, the party which brought him to prominent?”He asked.

Accordingly, the reported cold reception accorded the CDC in Ganta made the convoy to quietly sail to the capital city , Sanniquellie where the city hall door was said to have been locked in front of the presidential candidate of the CDC and his team when they went to address citizens of the county.

A Student of the St. Mary High School in Saniquellie, described the locking of the city hall to prevent the launching of the run-off campaign by the CDC as a bad signal for the party’s chances for the November 8 election.

Many on-lookers who witnessed the activities regarding the CDC squarely placed the blame on former President Moses Blah.

Recently, The FORUM news paper reported that the former NPFL Inspector General and former President Moses Blah has landed in the camp of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) under the captioned: “Moses Blah Lands in Oppong’s Kingdom.” Since then Mr. Blah has come under tremendous pressure from several permanent Nimba elders including women and youth regarding his (Blah) political behavior.

Following that publication, Mr. Blah reacted that he has never joined the CDC and that he never abandoned the NPP. However with the update about Mr. Blah’s affiliation with the CDC, it is now clear that what The FORUM reported has come to light.
