Ruling partisans resident in the rural areas of the Western parts of Sierra Leone will today be hosting the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma as he kicks off his campaigns for his re-elections. Speaking to excited parliamentary and local council aspirants yesterday October 17th 2012, they all assured that the entire rural area was fired up to warmly welcome the President who has been named by his followers as ďWorld BestĒ. They cited of how residents of that part of Western Area could not join the festivities for the Nomination Day of the President in the urban areas but will make up for that today with joyous celebrations in their areas. The President will stop at various points.

 

Today is the first day assigned to the Presidentís ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) in the 30 days of campaigning which commenced yesterday as announced by the National Electoral Commission (NEC). According to the time-table released, the APC were stopped from public campaigns yesterday by NEC which instructed for APC to instead commence its campaigns today.
