PRESS RELEASE


FROM THE BU-BUAKEI JABBI ELECTION TEAM

(Bu-JET)

 

The Bu-Buakei Jabbi Election Team (Bu-JET) views with concern certain rumours, reports and comments about him recently carried in a few daily tabloids in Freetown. These reports and comments have arisen only recently after the Flagbearer Aspirant and legal luminary, Dr. Bu-Buakei Jabbi, filed an action in the Supreme Court on Monday, 14th February 2011, in respect of the forthcoming election of the SLPP Flagbearer for the 2012 Presidential elections.


An overview of the purpose of the action filed by Dr. Jabbi in the Supreme Court will easily put the said rumours in their right place.


The main objective of the action is to address succinctly a problem that threatens to loom into what might be a technical hitch that could deprive the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) of the opportunity to validly nominate its candidate at the national Presidential election in 2012.


Newspapers and columnists have carried stories and write-ups that Dr. Bu-Buakei Jabbi has been given two hundred million leones (Le200,000,000) by the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) party, to take the current course of action against the SLPP and that APC paid his Flagbearer registration fee of fifty million leones (Le50,000,000).


How absurd for anyone to say that! These accusations and assertions are emphatically and categorically denied and dismissed on behalf of our Flagbearer candidate. The action taken by him is not even in the interest of the APC, but rather in the interest and protection of the SLPP. How therefore can the APC fund Dr. Jabbi to prevent APC having an advantage over the opponent, the SLPP?

 

This statement is therefore issued to reassure the entire membership of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), both at home and abroad, of which he is proud Grand Patron Member, that the action he has taken to legitimize the Partys executives and its Flagbearer election is in the paramount interest of the SLPP, and the SLPP alone


Over several months Dr. Jabbi wrote copiously and repeatedly to draw the attention of the Party, through the National Executives, to the need to legitimize the status of delegates who would subsequently elect the Flagbearer that will be the Partys Presidential candidate for the 2012 elections. But it was all to no avail.


The Council of Elders and the former Leader and Presidential Candidate of the Party in 2007, Mr. Solomon Ekuma Berewa, also separately wrote the National Executive along similar lines; but in both cases again to no avail. In all these cases there were no acknowledgements from the National Executives.


At the emergency Party Conference hurriedly convened in Bo City on 29th January 2011, delegates (some of whose tenure in office had already expired), extended their own period, however overwhelmingly, but still possibly ultra vires the Constitution and of no effect, whether or not a counter motion was put.


If wise counsel can prevail, the best option would now seem to be to put our house in order as a Party by setting an appropriate later date for the Party Conference to elect a Flagbearer. And in the meantime, to conduct zonal, chiefdom, constituency, district, and regional elections at different times throughout the country; and thereafter the National Executive to be first elected at the Conference before the Flagbearer election.


Let Party members review the issues by reading the various letters and relevant publications by the Elders Council, Dr. Jabbi, Solomon Ekuma Berewa, and others, and positively address themselves to the Partys chances of bouncing back to power, come 2012.
