Is the SLPPís Unity Newspaper ĎAwareí?

I see SLPPís Unity Newspaper under the Askia Koroma¬† led Ďnewí management of an editorial board, are not aware of much to write about except to dedicate the whole of page 3 to the alleged un-awareness of the Awareness Times Publisher as authored by Dr. Sama Banya. Of all the important things that could have been placed on Page 3, it was dedicated to senile materials. Observations on the educational sector? Nope! Observations on the Health sector? Nope! Observations on Infrastructure? Nope! Observations on Electricity? Nope! None of them were fit for Page 3 except for the droppings of the ink of a senile pen.


Banya has been correctly described by Arnold Akibo-Betts of THE SENATOR as being in the stage of life where his actions bring forth the saying ĎOnce a Man; Twice a Childí. The issue of Banyaís alleged senility can now scarcely be subjected to any lengthy debate. It is pretty glaring.


This is why only God knows why SLPP allows Banya to singlehandedly drive away well-meaning folks from the party. When people from Western Area resigned, instead of reaching out to them, Banya loudly dismissed them by saying they are Ďnot the real peopleí of the SLPP which Ďreal peopleí he said were located Ďbetween Kenema and Kailahun axisí. How divisive and tribalistic!

 

Mark my words that the effect of that Ďreal peopleí comment will be made to be felt at the appropriate time just like the stupid negative comment from SLPP Spokesman Musa Tamba Sam over SLBC-TV about the entire Creole grouping. Tamba Sam forgot he was being hosted on the TV encounter by a Creole in person of Samuel Valcarcel when he dropped his contemptible remarks about Creoles not having a distinct culture/identity.


Banyaís malicious journalism on SLPP news pages, his divisive, tribalistic comments added to other SLPP-inspired foolish insertion of US$800,000 into concocted recordings broadcast over radio air-waves are all counter-productive. They are driving people away and they are turning people off the SLPP as a possible alternative to APC. Those who applaud such dishonest and divisive acts and writings are short-sighted; oblivious to the unbelievable self-inflicted damage they are causing to the SLPP.


I hope Revd Gorvie has read his fellow PUAWUI this time as he seemed to be oblivious last time. Meanwhile, after this latest trash on Page 3 of Unity, I am waiting for the next batch of SLPP delegation which will attempt to call on me to let bygones be bygones. Ar dey wait..!

 

Meanwhile, in our usual objective and non-partisan manner, we have published the SLPPís latest release on Educational sector on our Page 5. We are professionals at Awareness Times so we give due prominence to mature publications and pay no heed otherwise. This is why, contrary to the stated wishes of Banya,¬†no-one here will comment on pieces of papers which bear no signature but are presented as the ĎShears-Moses Reportí.


Unlike Unity Board of Askia Koroma, our editorial board contains matured and responsible adults. We are grown-ups here unlike Banya who will soon be given a chance to collect a cash prize of Le100,000,000 (One Hundred Million Leones)!! Stay tuned for that one...
