On SLPP Chairman, John Oponjo Benjamin’s recent reference to His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma as a dictator, erudite SLPP parliamentarian Hon. Jobson Momoh has told this presshouse that he fully consented that the Queen’s Language Creates room for "such an apt and on-target description".

"The dictatorship classification of President Koroma is damn right because foremost he violated the Banking Act 2000 to sack former Bank Governor Dr. J.D Rogers who still had several months contractual rights and then he proceeded to nominate Dr. Samura Kamara regardless of opposition SLPP MPs disapproval of the nomination.

"Secondly, President Koroma has repeated the same on forcing Dr. Christiana Thorpe as Chief Electoral Commissioner on Sierra Leoneans," Hon. Jobson Momoh complained whilst he highlighted a string of additional similar dictatorial acts by the President involving the justice sector, elections sector and more.
