Yumkella has nothing to tell colleague first time voters
A debate is doing the round that the 58 years old Presidential candidate for the National Grand Coalition (NGC), Alhaji Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella will find it extremely difficult to either sensitize or galvanize support among first time voters because he too is going to vote for the first time in Sierra Leone, so what is he going to say to his compatriot?.
The public has drawn the attention of the NGC campaign management to involve the former UNIDO Boss in their move to sensitize first time voters to avoid void votes for the fact that he is going to vote for the first time for himself.
How could such a man who have worked for the international community for decades never boarded a flight to his country of origin to exercise his franchise but he is now urging fellow Sierra Leoneans to vote for him when he never thumb printed for nobody?, a nineteen years old man queried and vowed never to drop his vote for a man who has made no contribution to the development of the nation.
According to some irate political analysts, Yumkella has appeared to be one of the Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora who were talking negatively about the country but because he is now so ambitious to be the next President, he behaves like an astute politician that loves his country and people.
We are now seeing most Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora spent millions of dollars to come and register and they are now flying in to the country to cast their ballot for the candidate of their choice. Their action shows how committed and patriotic are they to bring positive changes unlike KKY who is fighting for self-glorification.
In fact that is why many are asking KKY what type of change is he talking about when positive changes have already taken place under the APC led Government of President Ernest Bai Koroma.
It could be recalled that when politicians were campaigning in those days that Sierra Leone was considered to be the darkest city in the world, citizens were crying for lack of effective electricity supply, infrastructural development, equipped health centres among others.
The APC Government has tries to provide all those basic amenities for it citizens. So what changes some of those ill motivated and selfish politicians who have turned their backs against their mother land are preaching to the public when they have questions to answer for deceiving the country.
Sierra Leoneans are willing and ready to decide peacefully in the ballot box come March 7th 2018 to know the most honest and truthful man among our politicians.
