Checkmate the political beat gunners
No one can deny the fact that “there is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the floods, leads on to fortune” and that “such a full sea” political flag bearer aspirants “are afloat” though there is a time for engaging the storm.
What, however, remains a concern, be it patent or latent, President Ernest Bai Koroma and all Sierra Leoneans, is the flagrant disregard for electoral rules and regulations that set time for politicking or political campaigning.
We can see a lot of men moving all over the country declaring themselves as flag bearer aspirants, contrary to the electoral laws.
The laws of this nation forbid anyone to engage in politicking when the National electoral Commission (NEC) has not declared that it is time for politicking.
While not denying a citizen the right to vie for any political office, adhering to the rules and regulations governing such activities should be a guiding principle.
Therefore, all those who wish to declare their intentions to the people should wait until the NEC has blown the whistle for political activities to commence.
This country is known for her stance on the principle of the rule of law, implying that all citizens, especially those vying for political offices, should make it a sacred duty to adhere to the dictates of the said principle.
In this regard, we implore President Koroma to ensure that his “boys” operate within the confines of the laws governing electoral activities of this nation.
