Eye witness accounts revealed that the election which was to be held last Friday 22nd March at the party’s head office, Yardu Road, ended up in chaos when rampaging youths attired in Sam Sumana’s T-shirts stormed the office, shouting “no Sumana no election”.
Dignitaries of the All People Congress party (APC) including the Attorney General Frank Kargbo, Local Government Minister, Diana Konomanyi and Honorable Dabundeh of Constituency 20 were all apparently embarrassed by the uncouth behavior of Sumana’s mercenaries.
Reports further revealed that that the group comprised notorious Sumana thugs spear-headed by Adamu and Bockarie Sandy whose riotous conduct prevented the election that was to be held ahead of the National Delegate Conference.
Reports say all efforts to put the situation under control by the APC Member of Parliament of Constituency 20, Hon. Dr. Aiah Dabudeh and other stakeholders proved futile as the thugs and supporters of the VP were shouting and misbehaving tirelessly, plunging the entire office into confusion.
A supporter of the VP told this medium that they are protesting on suspicion that there is a grand ploy by certain high ranking officials of the party to prevent the VP from becoming the APC flag-bearer in 2017.
The lawlessness of the Sumana thugs coerced the delegates to postpone the election till this weekend.
