Sierra Leone Politics: SLPP Trends on a Self-Destruction Path : Former SLPP education minister cautions

Former Deputy Minister of Education in the out gone Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) government, Abass Collier, has said the current SLPP is trending on a self-destruction path and advised its hierarchy that the deafening silence and hypocrisy that have cost the SLPP two election cycles cant be wining formulas in 2018.


Mr. Collier made this revelation in his article titled: SLPP civil war: Not a winning formula in 2018, which he sent to Awareness Times yesterday 10th April 2014.

According to him, vitriol, intimidation, irrational intolerance and unwarranted acts of barbarism within the SLPP, has been such that one would think the Party has been possessed by frenzied aliens from outer space.

 

He questioned the ability of the SLPP to make legitimate claims to its being democratic, peaceful and unifying when some members cannot accommodate or tolerate the points of view or ambitions of others.

 

He said the party cannot expect to go into elections broken, and with an unclear image, and expect to be taken seriously by voters.

 

He said if the first objective of a political party is to win elections, then nothing can be as self-destructing as the SLPP not going the whole nine yards to reconcile itself well ahead of 2018.

 

Such reconciliation, Mr. Collier went on, should be about truth telling as much as recognizing that no one who holds a contrary view or who supports another aspirant should be subjected to molestation, vandalism, name-calling and dismissal. He said any settlement should involve calling out all, Party principals in particular, who think the only way they can make the next SLPP government is to demonstrate their animosity toward others who disagree with them on issues or about their preferred aspirants.


Unless and until everyone is genuinely reconciled, the SLPPs 2018 prospect will be a diminished one, if not a pipe dream, Mr. Abass Collier ended.
