Unless the Attorney-General Wants to say Something?

This Writer, following many appeals from numerous quarters, has decided to cease my pen on the ongoing series about Dictatorial tendencies of the sitting President. I believe my point has been made and in the strongest possible terms that we are living in a democratic, free State with a multi-party National Constitution and enacted Laws, whose contents, we must all work hard to uphold in whatever sphere we might be in.

Meanwhile, Paul Kamara, Cornelius Deveaux and Hon. Minister I.B. Kargbo will soon face Complaint Hearings filed against them by this writer at the Independent Media Commission. This is for them to substantiate a lot of the arrant nonsense they have been saying against me; especially Hon. I.B. Kargbo... If they fail to substantiate, I will gladly accept their public apologies!

Last but not least, Information Minister Alhaji I.B. Kargbo had informed the Nation on Monday past that the Attorney-General will have a Statement to make on the specific constitutional issues I had been raising. Frankly, I do not think any sound lawyer will really have anything to say against my words written so I will consider this constitutional and dictatorial matter to be firmly closed as far as I am concerned... Unless the Attorney-General wants to say something...?
