Is the APC Changing for the Better?

One thing that has persistently turned many right-thinking people off the ruling All People’s Congress party is their violent intolerance of the views of others. In contrast, I find the opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party to be tolerant of criticisms, even whilst in governance.  SLPP Scribe, J.J. Saffa, will politely chat to find a common ground if I expose SLPP’s ignorance of constitutional provisions BUT APC will let loose educated but ill-bred thugs to write the vilest possible made-up stories against me if I expose their own ignorance of issues. This is why I was pleasantly surprised when a polite-sounding APC newspaper editor, Cornelius Deveaux, expressed in very polite terms, his paper’s intention to take me up on a certain issue. His politeness & civility sharply contrasts the abhorrent traits of certain other APC agents; some of whom sit at State House! I thus look forward to Deveaux’s write-up today on the issue of President Koroma’s dictatorial penchant and if it is expressed, on behalf of the APC, in civil diction, I will surely believe the face of the APC is changing for the better with a more tolerant mode of reaction to issues raised in the public domain. If that is the case, I will only say Congrats APC!
