CDC Exodus! CDC’s God Officials Resign

Must read

Religious and moral guardians of the Congress for Democratic Change join the exodus of members from the party, exposing the crisis of unity facing the country’s largest grassroots political movement following its 2023 ouster from power.

Long-serving National Chaplain General of Liberia’s Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) party, the Revered Festus Logan has announced his resignation from the position and suspension of his membership, effective immediately.

Mother Comfort Lloyd, national chaplain of the Women league has also left the party. “I have made the decision to resign from politics and move on with family and life in different dimension,” she said in a letter to party leaders.

In a letter addressed to the party’s Acting National Chairman, Augustus Janga Kowo, Rev. Logan cited his desire to fully commit to the church and humanitarian work without borders as the driving force behind his decision.

He explained that this dedication necessitates avoiding any political affiliations that might hinder his ability to effectively fulfill his humanitarian responsibilities.

“This decision to resign and suspend my membership is a difficult one, but as the scripture says, ‘To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the sun’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1),” Rev. Logan wrote in his letter. “The time has come for me to move on to humanitarian service, which is one of my purposes as a minister of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Rev. Logan had served as the CDC’s National Chaplain General for over 13 years. While in public service during the CDC’s reign from 2018-2024, he left a lasting legacy by constructing the first-ever, state-of-the-art LRRRC (Liberia Refugee, Repatriation, and Resettlement Commission) National Office in Liberia, located on Tubman Boulevard in Congo Town, Monrovia.

In his letter, Rev. Logan expressed his gratitude to the party’s leadership, his esteemed colleagues on the National Executive Committee, and the religious community that stood by him during his tenure as Chaplain General.

He also acknowledged the overwhelming support he received from the party’s dedicated partisans across Liberia’s various party structures and electoral districts.

The departures of the chaplains sparked discussions within the CDC amidst exodus following the loss of state power in 2023. The coalition itself has cracked with exit of parties.
