Addressing various stakeholders at Rokupr, the Minister of Works, who doubles as the Presidential Campaign Chairman, Northern Region, appealed for unity and cooperation amongst party supporters and urged them to refrain from any form of violence in the interest of the party and President Koroma.
According to Mr. Kamara, the party would not be at peace if the two aspirants are at loggerheads which he underscored would mitigate its winning chances and urged the people to put their differences behind them by turning a new page in the history of the party.
He further lauded Mohamed S. Kamara for demonstrating quality leadership by heeding to the advice of the President that has earned him respect among the party hierarchy and admonished the people to exercise patience and steadfastness on issues governing the party as well as the development of their communities.
He also reminded the people that there are several other opportunities opened to members of the party apart from being MPs or Councilors but underscored that this can only be achieved through unity and peace.
Alimamy P. Koroma also enlightened the people that Constituency 37 is not the only place affected by such a development but that the subcommittee also made changes in constituencies 37, 41 and 42 respectively and revealed that President Koroma has addressed all the losing aspirants assuring them to be faithful and not to allow divisions within the party reiterating that the interest of the party is paramount above all else.
He continued that the people should not let down the confidence reposed in them by the President pointing out that their contributions to the success of the party are invaluable.
The popular aspirant, who lost the symbol to Madam Bangura, Mohamed Salim Kamara aka ‘Sparko’ further entreated the people to exercise patience, be law abiding and loyal to the party.
