ALL PEOPLES CONGRESS - NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE (NPCC)

PRESS RELEASE

APC denounces uncivil and false statement

by Dr. Kadi Sesay against VP Samsumana

 

Freetown, November 6th 2012: It has come to the notice of the National Presidential Campaign Committee of the All Peoples Congress that the Vice Presidential Candidate of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party, Dr. Kadi Sesay made disrespectful and false statements against the sitting Vice President of the Republic of Sierra Leone. She made these statements in proffering her reasons for not participating in a proposed Vice Presidential debate.

 

This is now becoming a pattern that the National Presidential Campaign Committee finds unacceptable. It is incumbent on senior officials of political parties especially those running for such high office as President or Vice President to conduct themselves civilly. The SLPP hierarchy have shown disregard for authority of office holders in the State as exemplified by the recent behaviour of their Presidential candidate, Rtd Brigadier Julius Maada Bio who obstructed the path of the presidential convoy when he failed to comply with police instructions. Prior to this incident, the SLPP flag bearer refused to attend an interview when invited by the Police to throw light on certain inflammatory statements that he had made. Such behaviour causes undue tension in a process that the Government is working hard to conduct without violence or intimidation.

 

It should be noted also that where such language and actions are done by influential party members, their supporters tend to engage in further violence on the stance that their behaviour will be supported by their party hierarchy. The APC wishes to stress that its commitment to a free, fair and peaceful election is undeterred by this pattern of behaviour. We further urge our supporters to continue to remain peaceful, law abiding but resillient in their support for the Party and the return of President Koroma and his team to office at the first ballot come November 17, 2012.

 

Signed Hon. Minkailu Mansaray (Chairman, APC National Presidential Campaign Committee).
