30th April 2015@6:25pm: The Old & the Young were amply represented at our great APC party's Emergency Delegates Conference called today to discuss Ebola, Kicking Ebola out of MRU and staying at Zero Ebola cases. The party in its Resolutions, called on Parliament, Anti-Corruption Commission & other institutions to EXPEDITE actions on issues raised in Ebola Audit ordered by President Koroma.
We also used the chance to discuss party discipline during which accredited delegates unanimously endorsed decision of National Advisory Commitee to expel Sam Sumana. Sam-Sumana's appeal to Convention was unanimously rejected. He stands permanently expelled from the All Peoples Congress!
Photos show me & youngest Commissioner in Africa, Dauda Musa Bangura and then me and my beloved Uncle Abdul Iscandari, one of the respected Sages of our glorious party and lastly, me and Alie Conteh, APC Youths scribe. The very first holder of position of APC Youths Scribe was my father Babatunde Edward Walter Blyden and this was in 1971, the year I was born! I have more photos and a few videos of what was a very successful APC Convention.
@9:09pm: My brother Daniel S Morlu, to every rule, there is an exception. In this case, given the urgent nature of the matter(s) to be deliberated, we (our party, the APC) through our Secretary General, wrote a letter to the Inspector General of Police requesting permission to hold such a meeting to discuss Ebola - and with all necessary health measures observed. The IG of Police deliberated on our request and went ahead to grant us permission as long as we abided by measures laid out by NERC and Health Ministry. Your party, the SLPP, I am quite sure must have also requested for such permission from the Police in the recent past, to hold your National Executive Commitee political meetings where you took Resolutions such as to take our President's action to court and later, another resolution to expel Alie Bangura from your party. I hope I have clarified things for you. God bless you as always.
