APC’s Biggest Defender is Kailahun District Council led by Tom Nyuma

One of the biggest defenders of the All People’s Congress (APC) government is the Kailahun District Local Council under the Chairmanship of Tom Nyuma, it has emerged.

The Nyuma-led opposition SLPP dominated Council has now taken upon itself to be passionately speaking on behalf of the APC government, irrespective of the fact that Nyuma is still shamelessly posing as a member of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP).

Whenever the APC blunders in Kailahun, Tom Nyuma quickly intervenes by using his Kailahun District Council office to make a cover up and this is evident in a recent press release Nyuma issued this week to defend one of the exposed blatant lies of President Koroma’s government's recent publication.

The APC recently lied that they have constructed a Junior Secondary School (JSS) at Tondola, but they ran out of luck when the Awareness Times' investigative team detected and exposed the deceit proving beyond all doubts that no JSS exists in the township.

Though the APC saw no need to officially counter the revelations of the Awareness Times, Tom Nyuma went berserk and speedily drafted an ill-authored press statement in defense of President Koroma's presidency.

The said press statement, as published by the Torchlight Newspaper, is reproduced in this edition (down below), in order for the general populace to judge the character of this Tom Nyuma especially as Nyuma’s Council is now claiming that Plan International has built a JSS School in Tondola when our dynamic reporter Augustine Samba, scouted the entire Tondola and saw no JSS school there. Samba interviewed stakeholders in Tondola who all confirmed that there is no JSS School in Tondola. But Nyuma is desperate to defend the Presidency's over the published fabrication and so he manufactures a JSS School by Plan International.

See the Press Statement below from Kailahun District Council.


PRESS RELEASE FROM KAILAHUN DISTRICT COUNCIL

CONSTRUCTION OF A JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL WITH STAFF QUARTERS AND WATSAN FACILITEIS(sic) AT TONDOLA TOWN

THE ATTENTION OF KAILAHUN DISTRICT COUNCIL HAS BEEN DRAWN TO AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED BY “AWARENESS TIMES” ON THE 8TH NOVEMBER, 2010. THE TITLE IS CAPTIONED “SO DID PRESIDENT KOROMA LIE?” THE ISSUE CONCERNS THE ACTUAL LOCATION OF A SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT IN THE DISTRICT. THE KAILAHUN DISTRICT COUNCIL WISHES TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING CLARIFICATIONS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC:


THAT AS AT 2009, WHEN THE PROPOSAL FOR THE SAID PROJECT WAS SUBMITTED FOR APPROVAL BY THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, THE PROPOSED LOCATION FOR THE PROJECT WAS TONDOLA TOWN.


WHILST AWAITING THE FIRST TRANCE(sic) PAYMENT, PLAN SIERRA LEONE INTERVENED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF SCHOOL AT THE PROPOSED PROJECT SITE. AS THE CONSTRUCTION OF A JSS SCHOOL AT BUEDU WAS NEXT IN PRIORITY IN THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN, COUNCIL AGREED TO CHANGE THE LOCATION TO BUEDU TOWN.


THIS INFORMATION WAS MADE KNOWN TO THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DURING ONE OF ITS MONITORING VISITS. HOWEVER, THE OLD DATABASE WAS INADVERTENTLY USED IN PREPARING THE PUBLICATION TO MARK THE PRESIDENT’S 3RD ANNIVERSARY IN OFFICE.


THAT WE ARE PROUD TO INFORM THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT THE SAID PROJECT HAS BEEN COMPLETED AS ONE OF THE BEST PROJECTS IMPLEMENTED BY LOCAL COUNCILS AND COMMISSIONED BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT, DR. ERNEST BAI KOROMA.
