Maada Bio Gets Strong Backing from Most Pro-APC Tabloids in issue of Lawlessness of his Supporters

Questions are being raised by SLPP members as to why it is that most pro-APC and pro-Ernest Koroma news tabloids who have made no secret of the fact that they would like to see an Inquest instituted into the deaths of Bambay Kamara and others; which deaths, were at the very least witnessed by Maada Bio, have now taken up a simultaneous crusade to strongly back up Maada Bio’s supporters’ crude lawlessness over John Benjamin’s efforts to institute some order and discipline at the SLPP Headquarters.

In a simultaneous effort, the front pages of these APC newspapers have all supported Mr. Maada Bio as having the right to maintain his Djamba-smoking supporters at the Party Headquarters and have lambasted the John Benjamin led Executive for asking some of the more notorious Djamba-smoking supporters to quit the premises and go and work in their constituencies instead.  We are today producing just the last two days of three such pro-APC newspapers' front pages which all speak for themselves. Why is it so?

The African Champion of APC Minister Mohamed D. Koroma has run at least one dozen front page articles in support of Maada Bio’s supporters lawlessness that almost got a party supporter to be murdered inside the SLPP Headquarters. Why?

Exclusive Newspaper which daily carries banner sized photos of APC Leader accompanied by why APC should win 2012 Elections is now Maada Bio’s strongest defender saying JOB Executive must go for disciplining Bio’s lawless supporters. Of worthy note, is that the Council of Elders have stated to the official SLPP Newspaper, Unity Press, that they never made any such utterance as alleged by this newspaper over the removal of the Djamba smokers from the Party Headquarters but this is the image that the pro-APC tabloid wants to display that the removal of Djamba selling and Djamba smoking Maada Bio supporters is not supported by Council of Elders. Why?

The Punch Newspaper of David Tam-Baryoh of Monologue fame which rarely has anything good to say about SLPP is suddenly ‘chief advocate’ for Maada Bio both on Punch news pages and over Tam-Baryoh’s radio airwaves comments. Why?
