SLPP Will Accept APC’s Apology for Blackout in Sierra Leone

Opposition SLPP Members of Parliament at the House’s Energy and Power Committee have told Awareness Times last weekend that they would "readily accept" any apology that the ruling All People’s Congress and the current President would offer to their party. The MPs (Hon. Robin Faley of Segbwema, Hon. Mansaray from Bo and Hon. Matthew Nyuma from Kenema) told Awareness Times that they would magnanimously accept any apology issued to the SLPP over the APC’s pre-elections accusations that the then-ruling SLPP had failed to provide electricity to Freetown because of inefficiency and corruption.

Meanwhile, the Chairman and members of the Parliamentary House Committee on Energy and Power have paid an unannounced visit to the site of the Income Electrix operations at Blackhall Road as a first step towards taking up the issue of the Income Electrix operations in Sierra Leone that has now left the country owing well over 8 million dollars to Income Electrix; money that the country seems not to have to pay.

"It is a terrible situation. The APC, in their haste to show our erstwhile SLPP Government up as being inept and insensitive to the sufferings of the people, have created a perfect recipe for chaos," Hon. Matthew Nyuma told this paper last weekend.

Hon. Robin Faley also had a short "advise" for His Excellency the President.

"Mr. President, if I may advise you? Publicly accept that you were wrong about the SLPP and issue us an apology now!" Hon. Faley said in an open advise to the Head of State.

The SLPP Radio’s broadcasting duo, Mohamed Sulaiman Massaquoi and B.W. Bockarie has also announced that if the President would issue an acceptance that he had been ignorant of how difficult the task of electrifying Freetown actually was and proceed to apologise to the SLPP, then the SLPP would accept his apology.

There has been no reaction from State House so far about the growing Income Electrix impasse nor about the calls for an apology to be issued to the opposition.
