Hon. Musa Tamba Sam praises John Oponjo Benjamin in Sierra Leone

The recently resigned National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) has left journalists confused as to his exact position concerning the leadership skills of SLPPs National Leader & Chairman. This was after he told a gathering of persons in Koindu, Kailahun District last Friday April 8th 2011 that, had it not been for the excellent quality of leadership skills of SLPP National Leader John Benjamin, the SLPP would not have achieved all the successes it currently can boast of.

 

Hon. Musa Tamba Sam who was being videotaped throughout his lofty words of praises for John Benjamin, had a few days earlier, in a well publicised written letter dated April 4th 2011, lambasted the SLPP Leader as having allegedly failed to effectively lead the SLPP. This alleged failure of leadership was said to be to extent that Musa Tamba Sam could no longer continue to work with Benjamin thus leading to Sams resignation as National Publicity Secretary.

 

The flip-flop stance of Hon. Musa Tamba Sam, saying one thing in his Letter and another thing verbally to the people of Kailahun, can only be explained by Hon. Tamba Sam himself. Whilst John Benjamin has kept a dignified silence on the opprobrium being poured on him in Tamba Sams letter, he however responded to the praises showered on him by Tamba Sam whilst in Koindu.

 

Taking the microphone, John Benjamin diplomatically thanked Hon. Tamba Sam for the kind sentiments following which he assured the people of Koindu that his conscience was very clear that he had served his party well since he was elected as National Chairman. Benjamin assured he would continue to serve the SLPP to the best of his abilities.
