The CDC Youth League chanted a registration-aware slogan as they paraded from their party headquarters in Congo Town to the Old Road. 

While parading through the main streets on the Old Road, around the Total Gas Station, the police ordered that the group be dissolved to avoid a clash with supporters of Yekeh Kolubah, a lawmaker of the district.

The CDC Youth League could not stop their march as they insisted that their parade was intended to have their chairman and scores of other party officials registered in Montserrado County District #10.

The action from the police and supporters of the CDC caused panic in on the Old Road business entities were shut down for the entire morning hours.
