One of the twenty-three aspirants for the Sierra Leone Peoples’ Party (SLPP) flag bearer battle, Dr. Anthony Kakpindi Soyei, the only aspirant that has fully paid the candidature fee of Le.50m on Wednesday 13th October, 2010 unveiled his campaign billboard at the party’s National Headquarters in Freetown.

 

Addressing his supporters and a cross section of the press in that short but impressive ceremony, Dr. Soyei insisted on the need for the party delegates to vote wisely and put the right person in the right place. “For the SLPP to gain the reign of power back come 2012, we must have a perfect representation as flag bearer,” he said. He assured of the SLPP’s readiness to win the 2012 elections, but only if the party puts someone who can bring a landslide defeat against the ruling All Peoples Congress.  “That individual that the SLPP needs is no other person but me,” Dr. Soyei expressed with confidence.

He however, admonished his supporters to respect and honor his opponents; to bear in mind that they are all serving the same political party and that the contest is internal.  He said they were ready to go by the rules and regulations of the game and that the party is above self. 

 

Dr. Soyei used the occasion as another opportunity to highlight some of his achievements and support to the party and nation over the years. He also disclosed that of all seventeen political districts of the SLPP, he has visited fifteen where he helped to promote and revive party politics in those districts. “It was during the 2010 SLPP Bo Convention that I opened my hospital in Bo; and in that occasion I hosted over one hundred and fifty participants and delegates from Kono, Tonkolili, Bombali, Kenema, Bonthe, and Freetown,” he furthered.

Dr. Soyei also opined that he has one of the best records to make him fit to serve as SLPP’s Presidential candidate, a record he said he deserved since he has never worked for any government institution. “I have no political stain that can be used against me by any of my opponents or the delegates,” he boasted, adding that he is a neutral candidate, a candidate who has never involved in bickering of any sort that can draw the party backwards. He on that note called for reconciliation with the PMDC. “Without reconciliation between SLPP and other political parties such as the PMDC, APC, and NDA, to attain the SLPP ‘wuteteh’ formula will be difficult for 2012.” 


He concluded by saying that some of his priority stances when elected president of this country will be a focus on ruling on consultative participation in politics, in addition to provision of job opportunities at equitable level.
