Immediate Suspension of J.B. Dauda and Hon. Tamba Borbor Sawyerr from SLPP
The Leadership of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) has noted the recent Cabinet Announcement of the ruling APC Party Leader, H.E.

By then Dr. Alpha Wurie, who is widely believed to be the leading aspirant in the flagbearer race of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), was only thirty (30) years old, whilst the beautiful and elegant Isata was in her enviable early twenties, precisely twenty three (23) years old.

27-11-2010 NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEETING OPENING STATEMENTS BY THE NATIONAL CHAIRMAN AND LEADER, JOHN OPONJO BENJAMIN
I wish to welcome you all yet to another National Executive Council (NEC) Meeting here in this beautiful city of Makeni. Before I make any statement I entreat you all to please rise and pray silently for a peaceful repose of the souls of our departed party faithfuls since we last met as a council. Fellow party members, it could be recalled that the last NEC meeting we had in Freetown was specifically to address the contentions some had over portions of our party constitution relating to the legibility of the National Executive Members to contest for the position of the party flag-bearer ahead of the 2012 National Presidential election.

Sierra Leone People’s Party Press Statement
Freetown, November 30th 2010: The Sierra Leone People’s Party is dismayed to have heard the APC Party Spokesman, Political Affairs and Mineral Resources Minister, Alhaji Alpha Kanu, over numerous media airwaves this morning, alleging that the Speech by the National Leader of the SLPP, Mr. John Oponjo Benjamin delivered in Makeni on Saturday November 27th 2010 was the inciter of the recent violent uprising on the African Minerals Tonkolili Mining Site during which the landowners of the area allegedly attacked and destroyed equipment worth billions of Leones. The SLPP wishes to inform the public that Alhaji Alpha Kanu, a celebrated liar, was merely practising his lying skills this morning. The truth is that the violent uprising of the locals in Tonkolili occurred on Thursday November 25th 2010.
