Dr. Sylvia Blyden, a political ally of the President, has described tactics of the country’s opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) as chaotic and with no clear progressive direction. Writing on social media in local Krio parlance, she said “Me, ar kin look tire with una sef. Una Opposition nor get HEAD en ee nor get TAIL”.

 

Please see below to read full update written as a reaction to claims that the President’s leadership is not unifying.


Please help me to ask this Question: WHAT ELSE REALLY DO THEY WANT IN TERMS OF THEIR DEMANDS THAT PRESIDENT KOROMA SHOULD DO MORE TO UNITE THE COUNTRY?


Posted by Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden

 

Dear Amara Abu & SLPP Supporters,

 

I note your statement that our beloved President needs to do more to unite the country! You also implying that he is tribalistic and regionalistic. Well, how much more efforts to UNITE do you guys really want from the President???? On a daily basis and with his daily actions, we are seeing a man keen on uniting the country and improving on political tolerance.

 

Imagine when the President was going to say THANKS to the British Argus Ship and as Head of State, he did not take the APC Freetown Mayor or the APC Port Loko Local Council Chairman or the APC Bombali Local Council Chairman. Rather, he only took the SLPP Kailahun Local Council Chairman and the SLPP Pujehun Local Council Chairman along as his honoured guests.

 

The Army Number 1 and Number 2 positions are occupied by people whose roots and heritage are born and bred in Opposition heartlands of South-East. They were elevated to those positions by President Koroma and they have held those positions for years now under Koroma as Commander-In-Chief.

 

Yes, this is the man you guys are always saying should do more to show he cares for a united country where everyone feels SECURED as a part and parcel. I honestly cannot imagine any more form of security than putting the country's entire armed weaponry and military strength in the hands of two South-Easterners!

 

What else really do you guys want from Ernest Bai Koroma in terms of showing you that he cares for the ENTIRE country? Me, ar kin look tire with una sef... Una Opposition nor get HEAD en ee nor get TAIL... smh. You just come out with guns blazing from the hips not caring who gets hurt in the process!!!! So sad.

 

Even when a typical Mende man like Victor Foh is now the Vice-President, you cannot even wait for the Supreme Court to say if it is wrong or right, but some of you guys have come out on the streets of London and America dancing the mamba dance saying Foh should be removed...  Aye bo. Una nor go respect due process? The President says he is correct but you guys say you are the ones who are correct. The matter is now in Court for interpretation. Why not wait until the Law says the President is wrong?

 

All of this is because you know that your people are slowly waking up to the fact that your propaganda against Ernest Bai Koroma; claiming that he is tribalistic and divisive, is just that - propaganda! False propaganda! And you know that without that propaganda tool you wield, you cannot get that 37%.... So I can see why you do what you do - but please, una sorry for we country in image in the process of doing these things that you are doing. Sierra Leone deserves better you know.


God bless you and God bless Sierra Leone.
