Sierra Leone Opinion: JJ Blood Should Go Quietly...

We have read, with much amusement, the Press Release from Sierra Leone Peoples Party outgoing scribe, Jacob Jusu Saffa (aka JJ Blood), wherein he is trying to put a brave face on a disorientating reality ['take dry-yai cober shame'] in the matter of our newspaper's ACCURATE coverage of his deliberate attempt to frustrate the publishing of the SLPPs Voting Delegates List. If Mr. Saffa believes this newspaper published a falsity against him, we are challenging him to take us to the Independent Media Commission where we will further expose his dubious actions last weekend.

We will expose how JJ Blood disrespectfully and most viciously ensured the Voters List was torn off the walls of the Party Headquarters last Saturday July 23rd 2011 after the SLPPs Independent Electoral Board had hung it up. Why did he do that if he now claims only the Electoral Board has the mandate to publicise the List? Why Mr. Saffa? Why did you have the List provided by the Electoral Board, torn off the Partys Notice Board? Please explain.

We will expose how it was John Benjamin who, on his way to the provinces last weekend, had to soothe stretched nerves of party supporters who were angered at JJ Saffa's uncouth action. If anyone has ensured transparency of the process, it was NOT JJ Blood whose definition of transparency might include tearing off Lists from Electoral Board and hiding them!

Now, everyone has been alerted on the issue. The precise nature of voting delegates list is now known by number and by name. Awareness Times by raising the profile of this issue especially over Diasporean concerns has received much commendation from SLPP members for which we are proud.

In our opinion at Awareness Times, it will be best for Saffa (JJ Blood) to go quietly this weekend than to go with the possibility for this Presshouse to send him off in grand style which is what he seems to be courting.

A word to the wise...
