Let us work the talk for the good of our homeland…
A sagely colleague in the diaspora who is known to be a hard core supporter of main opposition SLPP has warned that his party should rather accept the results of the just concluded presidential election and congratulate president Koroma because boycotting participation in governance is definitely not prudent but will further boomerang the party and subsequently undermine the prosperity of the nation.
It emerged that the country’s main opposition expressed resentment after the results were announced by the NEC. Instead of clogging with the infamous decision of civil disobedience by the SLPP which by all intent will stifle democracy, they should rather forward their grievances to the appropriate state mechanism for possible redress while they consolidate as a party for future occurrences.
In his re-election for a second term of office President Koroma has on diverse occasions expressed his willingness to work with all Sierra Leoneans irrespective of political affiliation, he also went further to extend an olive branch to the SLPP to join the band wagon of development and work together to build Sierra Leone. It is a pity that as world leaders acclaimed the NEC for a credible election, and both international and domestic observers lauding the conduct of the polls, the SLPP is still averse to the completion of the process.
News of disintegration among the same SLPP keeps emerging and some of the prospective members of parliament have threatened to ignore the proposed boycott. They know fully well that it will not yield good dividend.
The hierarchy of the aggrieved party we learnt was to meet with the President today but up to press time what came out of the meeting could not be ascertained. We therefore hope that the SLPP burry the hatchet, rely on the complaint that have already been forwarded to the court and wait patiently for its judgment. Let us all come together and work the talk for the development and general good of our beloved homeland Sierra Leone.
