Three opposition lawmakers and an independent member of the House of Representatives Friday joined the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).

Sinoe County Senator Milton Teahjah, Representatives Jay Nagbe Sloh, Crayton Duncan elected on the ticket of the erstwhile ruling Unity Party (UP) said they were taking membership with the CDC to help President Weah.

Bong County District#7 Representative Papa Kolleh is the other lawmaker who is now a CDC member.

Their decision to become card bearing members of the ruling party is not for material gains but one intended to assist President Weah achieve his goal and make Liberia a better place for all Liberians, Representative Sloh said.

Sloh justified the decision by saying, “it’s not a good thing to sit on the fence to see your brother carrying a load and you know that you can help. The way to help him with the load the Liberian people have placed on his head is to join him.”

For Senator Teahjah, it was a return to a once abandoned home.

“I stand here to bear witness to a process I went through in 2005 in this very conference room.

“For me this is a repeat of my own experiences in the past. No one can write the history of the freedom of the children of Israel without mentioning Moses. No biblical   scholar has ever written without mentioning Moses. I am one of the Moses’ of this party. I have fought with the help of others to bring this [endorsement] day,” he said.
