John Benjamin & SLPP Evade NPRC Passport TiffyTiffy

John Oponjo Benjamin, Leader of the main opposition SLPP has disappointed many citizens once again with his refusal to throw light on the corruption scandal that has engulfed their party following information that the SLPP presidential candidate, Maada Bio, is a big thief who stole national passports during the erstwhile NPRC military junta and squirreled the proceeds into his secret overseas bank accounts.

 

Mr. Idriss Kamara, another former NPRC junta member, is insisting that the sales of passport was not an NPRC Government decision but was a secret decision by Bio & other corrupt elements.

 

John Benjamin was Secretary-General of NPRC and should be able to tell the public the truth but he is staying quiet.


This is leading many to believe Benjamin is protecting Maada Bio from more disgrace.

 

John Benjamin also did not know anything about the passport sales but he is keeping quiet to protect Maada Bio, a civil servant said yesterday on condition of anonymity.
