For Associating ĎTorkpoií with ViolenceÖSLPP MP Blasts Hon. Rado Yoki

One of the SLPP firebrands, Hon. Robin Fallay, has seriously lambasted Hon. Rado Yoki, over the latterís recent utterances associating the SLPP with violence.

Hon. Fallay of Constituency 7 in the Kailahun District made this condemnation while speaking to newsmen at the offices of Engineer Andrew Keili in Freetown, where he hailed Ďthe mature leadership attributes being demonstrated by the Leader and Chairman of the SLPP, John Oponjo Benjaminí.

Hon. Rado Yoki, who recently endorsed a certain flagbearer aspirant, who is well known for his violent tendencies, was quoted as saying the APC is a violent party and the SLPP needs a violent leader to remove the APC from power.

Robin Fallay used the forum as an opportunity to distance the SLPP (Torkpoi) from violence, as he puts it: ďThe SLPP is a peaceful political party with no room for violent peopleĒ.

He described the utterances by Hon. Rado Yoki as unfortunate, noting that such pronouncement has the tendency to drag the image of a whole political setting into disrepute.

ďThe SLPP needs an experienced, mature, and marketable leader, with the charm to project the partyís image to higher heights at both local and international levels,Ē Fallay pointed out, while stressing that a violent leader is no option for the SLPP.

ďOur party does not need violent people to oust the APC from State House, but people with the potential to democratically contest and defeat the APC in the 2012 presidential election,Ē he emphasized.

Fallay, who is well known for his criticism of the SLPP when it is warranted, made no secret about his admiration for the SLPP Chairman and Leader, John Oponjo Benjamin (JOB), noting that ďJOBís matured leadership style has succeeded in redirecting the focus of the SLPP away from some unfortunate activities to the decent style of politics as was practiced in the glorious days of Sir Milton Margai and the other founding fathers of the SLPP.
