SLPP is Winning Abacha Traders

The manner in which the political atmosphere is presently developing in Sierra Leone, there is no hidden secret that the opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) is gradually taking control over several strongholds of the All Peoples Congress (APC) party.


On Friday 15th October 2010, a large number of traders, mainly women along the famous Sani Abacha Street in Freetown stormed the Headquarters of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party on Wallace Johnson Street in Freetown to swap their support and loyalty from the APC to the SLPP. A team of twenty-six traders in all who were once active in the APC but became disgruntled over the operations of the government over the years have decided to pitch tents with opposition SLPP.


Addressing the traders in his office, the SLPPYoung Generation Leader, Mr. Mallam Janneh thanked the traders for making what he described as the wisest decision even though the party is still in opposition. He described the traders’ visit as a sign that no one political party can claim ownership of the Sani Abacha traders at all times. He em,braced them in the party’s fold as he said the SLPP is for every Sierra Leonean and will always cater for all Sierra Leoneans regardless of political nor tribal affiliations.


On behalf of the team, their charlady Madam Zainab Kalokoh said that Abacha traders are very critical to the wining of elections by any political party in Sierra Leone. She said this time round, they have decided their minds and will ensure that they render their support to the SLPP until they come back to power in 2012. 


A male member of the group, Mr. Osman Kargbo told the party stalwarts that they reached their decision to join the SLPP willingly and were not instigated by any force. He said despite APC’s claim that Abacha Street is for them, they were at the party office to assure the SLPP executive that the party owns 90% of the Abacha Street traders.  


In response, the National Secretary General of the SLPP Mr. Jacob Jusu Saffa welcomed that traders and encouraged them to remain firm in their support for the SLPP. He admonished them to be attending meeting convened by the party in their various constituencies or where ever they find themselves order to keep themselves abreast with development within the party.
