A campaign team already formed ahead of formal declaration of intent for the flag bearer position of opposition SLPP for Hon. Alpha O Timbo on Tuesday 10th August 2010 donated to SLPP Executive members of Constituency 93 in Godrich as part of a goodwill gesture for the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan.

Presenting the gifts on the group’s behalf, the Secretary to the team, Mr. Tony Moiforay noted that they were making such handsome donation to assist party Muslim members within the constituency for this blessed month. He said the donated items that comprised of bags of imported rice and assorted provisions with some amount of money would help them in keeping the fast, adding that they were going to replicate similar gestures to other constituency executive members across the Western Area as part of their own support to their aspirant, Alpha Timbo.

Mr. Moiforay also disclosed that several other plans have been lined up by the campaign team to help strengthen Timbo’s aspirations. He said they would do that through empowering members of party executives for the 2011 National Delegates Convention, and up till the 2012 elections. He told the recipients to note that the team was in support of the candidacy of Mr. Timbo who he referred to as the fittest and most competent person to lead the SLPP in national elections in 2012.  “He is the only individual that has the charisma to challenge President Ernest Bai Koroma and defeat him hands down,” he said. He therefore called on them as delegates to choose a flag bearer to lead the party to make victory easy in 2012, a leader to redeem Sierra Leone from the bad rule of the APC.

Receiving the gifts on behalf of the executive, constituency chairman Alfred Chambers expressed appreciation and thanked the campaign team for thinking of them, especially in the month of Ramadan. He assured team members that the donated gifts would reach those concerned.
