ELECT KADI SESAY TEAM

PRESS RELEASE

RESPONSE TO INNUENDOS DIRECTED AT THE KADI SESAY CAMPAIGN IN RESPECT OF CERTAIN PUBLICATIONS 000000

 

Issued July 19, 2010

 

Over the past ten days the Elect Kadi Sesay Campaign Team has closely followed publications on the internet and in local tabloids regarding an SLPP delegate opinion poll emanating from a controversial source. Particularly, our team woke up to the statement that ... “certain candidates for the SLPP flag–bearer position are getting desperate and have started engaging in unsavory tactics to raise their visibility”. The July 14, 2010 edition of Awareness Times newspaper was categorical that “unscrupulous supporters of Kadi Sesay” were the source of the suspect delegate opinion poll.


The Campaign Team wishes to reiterate Kadi Sesay’s platform of “transparency, accountability, and integrity”. We have made our campaign strategy very clear to everyone over the past three months. We have never seen any need to prepare and publish an opinion poll as a means of influencing the hearts and minds of the delegates. We have taken our campaign right round the country and feel satisfied0with the growing endorsements from people across the regions, from all walks of life. People have been inspired by our candidate’s message and agree with her policy priorities, vision, and sense of purpose. Our campaign is armed with testimonies from across the country attesting this. Opinion poll from whatever source bears no relevance to our candidate’s platform of accountability, transparency, and integrity.


We want to make it abundantly clear that Kadi Sesay has not been privy to the generation and publication of the suspect delegate count opinion polls. Equally, Kadi Sesay has not found evidence that a member of the Elect Kadi Sesay Campaign Team was involved in the generation and publication of the suspect poll. We view any insinuation to the contrary as unfortunate; the circumstances notwithstanding.


Our team runs a proactive and forward-looking campaign focused on our candidate’s platform. We are very confident that the SLPP has been presented with a candidate who has an impeccable track record, and well prepared to bring our party the glory it duly deserves. Over the past three months, Kadi Sesay has demonstrated a unique ability to attract new voters to SLPP because of people’s growing awareness of her sensitivity to the issues of our time and her proven capability to provide a better direction for the country. We are therefore not distracted by the publication but continue to keep our focus on our core platform as the gateway to the hearts and minds of Sierra Leoneans. It is our position that the current leadership contest in SLPP has produced many extraordinary candidates many of whom would make a great President if given the chance. Our focus is to work with all aspirants and Party members to give this country the leadership it deserves. We strongly believe that at such a time when our country continues to suffer in silence, now is the time for the SLPP to come together and rise above bigotry in readiness for victory in 2012.


The Elect Kadi Sesay Campaign Team will continue to0canvass delegates, supporters and skeptics and work to sustain the momentum we have built on to the finish line of the SLPP race, and take our campaign into the 2012 elections to bring back the Party to State House. In the coming weeks, our team will update the public with further details of our campaign.


Long Live Unity of SLPP!
