One of the leading aspirants in the flagbearership race of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), Lawyer Alpha Osman Timbo, is expected to leave the shores of Sierra Leone today Monday 26th July 2010 for the United States of America (USA).


In America, Alpha Timbo would be hosted by a group of members of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party known as the SLPP Caucus in Support of Alpha Timbo. Speaking on the telephone line from the United States of America, Secretary General of the Caucus, Mr. Alex Salieu Bangura, said the caucus was formed following an earlier visit of Lawyer Timbo to the US.


During that visit, he continued, Alpha Timbo noted his intention to contest for the leadership of the SLPP and subsequently the presidency of Sierra Leone. Bangura pointed out that the support group have been working tirelessly in the direction of galvanizing support for the young leader, adding that the group has succeeded in bring a huge number of Sierra Leoneans residing in the USA to their fold.

 

We are eagerly waiting to receive Alpha Timbo so that he can assess our progress and have the opportunity to meet with and address new members of the caucus, Bangura said.


The SLPP strongman is also expected to address twelve (12) different organizations in the US, and reports have it that the said organizations are eagerly looking forward to the visit of Mr. Timbo.


According to him, Timbo will witness the SLPP delegates conference in California which will commence on the 6th August 2010 and; will serve as an honored guest in the Tegloma Federation Conference slated for 31st August in North Carolina.


Since Mr. Timbo is a member of the labor movement in Sierra Leone, we have arranged a meeting with one of the largest labor movement organization in the USA, the American Federation of Labor Congress of Industrials Organization (AFLCIO) and the American Centre for Labor Solidarity (ACICS) in Washington DC, he explained, adding The essence of the meeting is for their candidate to inform the organizations of his intention for Sierra Leone and to seek possible advice and support from them.


In a brief chat, Hon. Alpha Osman Timbo expressed elation over the actualization of the caucus in his support. He described its formation as a step in the right direction.


According to him, he shall be speaking to a lot of organizations in the USA who have consented to meet with him.


If I am the destined leader for the SLPP and Sierra Leone, so be it, he pointed out, whilst promising to always live up to the expectations of the people.


Lawyer Timbo also used the occasion of his chat with Awareness Times to distance himself from the published rantings of a person using a pseudonym to attack this Newspaper Publishers perceived support for Lawyer Timbo. The pseudonym claims to be writing from Washington DC in America.


I am going to be very categorical right there in America that I have the greatest possible respect for Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, Publisher of Awareness Times Newspaper, Timbo assured.

 

Meanwhile, the wife of Lawyer Timbo who currently resides in Washington DC has also telephoned Awareness Times newspaper to totally distance the Timbo family from the pseudonym who recently published a scathing article against Sylvia Blyden in ruling party sponsored news organs.


Only a fool will say Sylvia Blyden is not an asset to any Presidential aspirant and Alpha Timbo is not a fool, Mrs. Izotee Timbo assured over the phone line. Her sentiments are re-echoed by Mr. Alex Salieu Bangura, the Caucus Secretary-General, who says of all the women in Sierra Leones current socio-political sphere, his greatest possible respect goes to Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden.

 

Meanwhile, Dr. Blyden has reiterated that she has neither preferred candidate nor any abhorred candidate out of the galaxy of respectable persons who have emerged so far for the position of SLPP flagbearer.
