Pursuant to what is expected of the All Peoples Congress (APC) party delegates, the Chairman and Leader of the main opposition APC party, who also doubles as the former President of Sierra Leone, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma has on Saturday 11th January 2020 speak tough and cautioned delegates of the APC in a very strong tone to be very neutral ahead of the election of the part’s flag bearer for the 2023 presidential election.
He made the statement while addressing his party’s delegates, supporters, Members of the Diplomatic Community and the media in Port Loko City, North-Western Sierra Leone. He cautioned that delegates should not publicly declare for a flag bearer aspirant but rather to be accommodative to all flag bearer aspirants. He maintained that very soon some flag bearer aspirants will form themselves into cabal and promised delegates that if you support me in the course, and I succeed, I will appoint you into ministerial positions. He added that such promises will set the party apart as others will soon begins to go after each other and the party will be divided.
He encouraged delegates of the party that his leadership will ensure that he made it easy to enable the party accessible and accommodative to new and old members. He said he will continue to unify and strengthen the party. “The contest for the flag bearer in the party should not bring war in the party. We have to look at it on two sides; firstly we as officials in the party that are executive members, should not openly identified ourselves with a candidate against the other. Secondly is for those who are aspiring for flag bearer, some are now forming themselves into teams. If you such happen, then the party will be in big trouble.” Former President Koroma stated. He made it known to flag bearer aspirants that power comes from God and not by anyone’s arrangement or ‘Munku Plan’.
He called on all to be accommodative and open up because the APC is a family party that should maintain love and unity among its members, adding that when once a flag bearer is elected; all members should put their hands on desk in campaigning for that candidate for a sure victory come 2023.
The Chairman and Leader of the APC, former President Koroma said that he is convinced that many people are on their way to join the party and they will open the door and embrace them and let all work as one family. He further appeals to officials to thread consciously and also call on flag bearer aspirants to understand that some people will only support them for their selfish interest. “Some supporters will bring a cause to your aspiration, so we need to be very careful with certain people with their support”. EBK advised flag bearer aspirants.
