One of the intended contenders for the leadership of the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) Steve Gaojia has referred to party leader as having misleading intentions for the party. A press release issued by the Steve Gaojia Leadership Campaign Committee (SGLCC) on Friday the 12th December 2008, has exposed the leader of Peoples Movement for Democratic Change, Charles Francis Margai as peddling baseless and unfounded rumours against the intention of Mr. Gaojia to lead the party for the 2012 battle.

                                   
PMDC Margai

The charge follows the PMDC leaders alleged pronouncement in certain quarters that Steve Gaojia has backed out of the partys leadership contest.

Contrary to the said rumour the release continues, Steve Gaojia has not dropped his intention to run for that coveted position, and that he believes can win the PMDC leadership anytime, anywhere. The release further damned what it referred to as the recent Margai manipulated conference at Makeni as unconstitutional, and that the campaign team would come out with a position statement about the travesties that occurred there on November 29th 2008 when the National Secretary shall have issued official notification to them. The release said the convention was a fiasco because only a selected few were there, reportedly hand picked by the current leadership.

In the release, the intended contender thanked the PMDC membership for supporting him in his recent consultative and declaration tour. It underscored the importance of cohesion as the release strongly believes that without the memberships strong support and encouragement, the weakness and short-sightedness of Mr. Charles Margai would have remained unexposed.

The release said Steve Gaojia has vowed to challenge in court the contrived and inappropriate emergency conference that allegedly sought to endorse the postponement of the PMDC leadership election beyond the constitutionally stipulated April 11, 2009 to 2011.

The Gaojia team, as the release stated urges all PMDC members to remain united and not be budged by the schemes of few people bent on derailing positive change leadership goals.
