Minkailu Bah in Bad Heart, Unprogressive Politics
News emerging from Tonkolili District has again suggested that the Minister of Education, Dr Minkailu Bah was the mastermind behind the refusal of some District APC stakeholders to attend a meeting called by the former Sierra Rutile CEO, John Sisay. He was however unable to prevent thousands of young people who thronged the streets of Magburaka to welcome John Sisay who held a successful meeting at the District Council Hall on Wednesday.
According to our sources, Dr Bah, who has gradually become a hated figure by ordinary people in the district was heard making telephone calls, threatening stakeholders who wanted to to attend the meeting. To his shock and dismay, scores of APC constituency executive members attended a special meeting organized by the Chairman of the Tonkolili District Council, Alusine Kamathor on behalf of John Sisay. Reports say John Sisay was able to convince the delegates about his preparedness to lead the APC to the polls. Delegate after delegate expressed their willingness to work with John Sisay to promote the ideals of the party and continue in the good works of President Koroma.
Reports say this wasn’t the first time Dr Minkailu Bah has intimidated people for supporting an APC candidate of their choice. He was also alleged to have scolded a school principal who decided to welcome the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Fitzgerald Kamara who happens to be an old pupil of the said school in Magubaraka.
Minkailu Bah’s dictatorial dominance of the District’s politics is causing growing resentment against him and to a certain extent the APC party. APC supporters in Magburaka town are now said to be divided into two factions. One of the groups supporting Minkailu is reported to be behaving like a local militia, intimidating people they perceive for having shifted allegiances.
“Minkailu Bah is now behaving like he owns the district” remarked one Yusuf whose real identity we cannot disclose.
