Information reaching this medium have it that the Publicity Secretary of the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) party, Cornelius Oguntola Melvin Deveaux has spent nights at the United States Embassy in Freetown seeking political asylum.
It can be recalled that on Monday 3rd June, 2019, the Sierra Leone Police declared Deveaux wanted and placed the sum of Five Million Leones as reward for any information leading to his arrest.
Reliable sources reaching the AYV news have it that the former Minister of Information and Communications in the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) led government Hon. Alpha Khanu will be expelled from the party this morning.
Reports say the top APC man’s expulsion is as a result of him defying the party’s position against the ongoing Bintumani Three meet.
It can be recalled that Hon. Khanu was at the Conference yesterday where he delivered a statement and called for the restructuring and change of leadership in his party, the APC for failure to attend the conference.
Bio and Koroma – Sierra Leone’s future is in your hands sirs, kill it today or build it forever
During a random survey that was conducted in Freetown, Makeni, Kabala, Bo and Kenema to sound the views of ordinary Sierra Leoneans as to whether holding a National Dialogue (Bintumani 3), what came out glaringly is that the vast majority support it saying it is of utmost significance. In some of those places visited there were people who have a figment of what a National Dialogue is all about but after thorough explanation they profusely acclaimed it.
The fear and hatred of the opposition All People’s Congress (APC) party’s tactics gradually eating into the fabric of the government of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) of His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has once again prompted me into this action of calling the government to attention. The opposition APC’s concerted effort to undermine the SLPP government into failure in the eyes of the people of Sierra Leone and the international community started the very day March 7, 2018 when the SLPP was declared winner of that year’s election and Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio became President. Firm in their uncanny notion that the governance of Sierra Leone is their exclusive right and power their domain, they vowed never to recognise the government and leadership of the SLPP under President Bio. They then went to work, improved on their 99 tactics and put them into motion. And like the Edison’s light bulb, the tactics are working.
President Julius Maada Bio’s delivery of his televised and radio broadcast state opening of parliament address, was overshadowed by the spectacular walking out by opposition APC MPs, who are protesting against what they see as the president’s abuse of power.
But their walk out did not deter the president, whose speech was for the consumption of citizens and the international community, as it was for the MPs who stayed behind to listen.
The main opposition political party in Sierra Leone, the All People’s Congress (APC) Members of Parliament (MPs) have unanimously and unceremoniously walked out of parliament in protest on what they described as ‘abuse of the country’s constitution’ by the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) led government of Julius Maada Bio.
As President of Sierra Leone and Leader of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) between 1995 and 2007, Ahmad Tejan Kabbah embraced all those who contested against him for the leadership of the party in 1995. In fact, after emerging as party flag bearer in 1995, the late Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, who understood the essence of working together, called on all party members and supporters to unite behind his leadership in the interest of the party.
The main opposition, the All People’s Congress (APC) party has expressed disappointment over what it has described as ‘an announcement of an injunction slammed at All Political Parties Association (APPA) by a self-acclaimed APPA leadership’.
This was according to Karamoh Kabba, the party’s Lead Representative at APPA press conference held yesterday in Freetown.
All People’s Congress (APC) party’s National Publicity Secretary One, Hon. Robin Faley, has demanded that the current National Chairman and Leader of the party, Ernest Bai Koroma, his deputy Minkailu Mansaray, scribe Osman Foday Yansanneh and all other current executive members including his very self to resign immediately. According to him, the Koroma team is now tired and will not be able to continue leading the party to the next election. See our tomorrow’s (Friday March 14) edition for full interview with Robin.
A recent social media post authored by Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, one of All People’s Congress’ strong women and very senior female members is said to have rendered some APC party members restless and troubled.
It can be recalled that the professional medical doctor, journalist now politician, past week posted on her Facebook and WhatsApp platforms that she is now all set to make a personal appearance at the ongoing Commissions Of Inquiry.
