National Chairman of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peopleís Party (SLPP) has, on behalf of his party, vowed to ďchallenge any attempt by the APC government to continue the use of thuggery and political intimidation in the politics of our countryĒ.
ďWe will also continue to challenge the continuous political interference by the APC government into the operations of the countryís democratic institutions like the IMC, PPRC, NEC, PARLIAMENT and LOCAL COUNCILS,Ē said Mr. John Oponjo Benjamin in his New Year message.
According to Mr. Benjamin, ďthe SLPP shall continue to advocate fearlessly on issues that border on corruption, democracy, human rights and good governance in our country without malice, in the interest of every citizen so that the¬† workplan contained in the APC political manifesto does not disappear into thin airĒ.
The SLPP Chairman also used the forum to raise grave concerns on what he termed as ďthe open interference by the APC government in the conduct of the current Paramount Chieftaincy electionsĒ. Such Political manipulation, according to him, interferes with the citizenís right to freely choose the paramount chief of their choice and could lead to social instability.
