As RUFP Merges with APC, Youth Groups Say ‘Ernest Koroma is Salone’s Saviour

Media Reports over the weekend have revealed that the Revolutionary United Front Party (RUFP) has declared its support for the All People’s Congress Party (APC), barely five weeks to Presidential and parliamentary elections, scheduled for August 11, 2007.

The declaration was made public by the RUFP leader Samuel Gbassay Kanu, who confirmed that the merger has "already taken off" but "without any protocols".

Kanu said the membership of the RUFP has come to realize that the situation on the ground is such that it makes sense for his party to merge with the APC considering the fact that according to the RUFP which was formed to eliminate the APC, the APC was now ironically seen by the RUFP as "the only way out" in the provision of solutions for Sierra Leone.

The RUFP which has a Lion as their symbol has now through their Leader called upon their supporters wherever they may find themselves to now solidly stand on the side of their former foes, the APC with the red sun.

This announcement by RUFP's Leader brings to two, the number of insignificant parties who have pitched tent with the second largest political party in Sierra Leone. However, as in the case of the first party, the People's Democratic Party, the import of this recent merger of the former rebels with their former foes is of little significance as the RUFP is of little significance in Sierra Leone now.

Meanwhile, youths groups in the Eastern part of the Western Area have stated to this press that the All Peoples Congress Leader and flagbearer, Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma, was the "saviour" of the country who will, according to them, "remove the SLPP Government Regime from power". Youths group like the Sisters United for Peace and the One Love Group heaped praises on Ernest Koroma. According to the secretary general of the One Love Youth Group, the APC was "well disciplined" and with "Zero tolerance for any form of corruption".

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Sisters United for Peace, Madam Abibatu Kamara who spoke to Awareness Times at the APC Headquarters, noted that the party needs to be "well united" to remove the Sierra Leone People Party from power. Sierra Leoneans needs to vote for a better change in the country through the APC leader she declared. According to Abu Tarawalie a strong member and supporter of the All Peoples Congress, "we are appealing to all parliamentary contestants like Serry Kamal and other to join hands with the Leader in ensuring victory for the APC Party come August 11th."

Mr. Tarawallie assured that the APC "will not accept any election result that is not genuine" although he did not elaborate on how results would be decided as genuine or not.

The SLPP, he said, has not done much in the area of poverty reduction and this as a result has not helped the country with unemployment rising everyday and youths with no hope.
