APC Koinadugu Chairman Describes Day As Happiest

E-mail Print PDF

Addressing thousands of people at the Koinadugu Town Field over the past weekend on the auspicious occasion of the official recognition and welcome to the fold of the APC of senior indigenes of the district who have decided to return to the party of their origin by denouncing their membership of the SLPP, PMDC and NDA, the APC Koinadugu district chairman Comrade Dr. Fasineh Samura describes the day as the happiest for the people of Koinadugu and the moment as awesome and unforgettable.

He expressed optimism that Koinadugu will match toward the 2012 elections in full support of the APC and that the APC will obviously clinch the six parliamentary seats and over 90% of the votes to be cast at the 2012 presidential election to give President Koroma a comfortable edge over any other contender.

Recounting the long trail of persuasion and convincing, Dr. Samura likened the 2012 elections to a return football match with the APC being the host team in Koinadugu and the SLPP the visiting team. He said the opposition SLPP have been dispossessed of its key players (Alhaji Batorma Sheriff et al) and the goalkeeper (Julius Maada Bio) has been awarded a red card (denied by the people for gross human rights violations) even before the start of the game.

He disclosed that after the 2009 APC delegates conference at Makeni, his executive resolved to embark on a membership drive by appealing to their kith and kin to see reason to join the APC and support President Koroma’s development agenda.

The APC Koinadugu district chairman highlighted political tolerance and persuasion as the catalyst behind the APC’s ultimate dominance of the district. He said the people of Koinadugu are politically united for development.

He said the district executive warmly welcomes into the fold of the APC the sons and daughters of the district who have so desire to return to the party of their origin.

The APC chairman further pointed out their inclusion confirms the APC’s dominance of the district. He appealed to all and sundry, to work together for the growth of the APC and the development of Koinadugu district.

Speaking also the epoch making occasion, Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Development II F. B. L. Mansaray called on the people to come out in their numbers to register when NEC commences voter registration early next year.

He elucidated on the new system of voter registration pointing out the virtues of the biometric system of registration. The Deputy Minister further educated the people on the pattern of registration and its procedures.

He enjoined the APC Koinadugu district chairman is describing the occasion as a memorable and soul-touching event which marks a significant turning point in the APC’s foraging spree and further extended a hearty welcome to Alhaji Batorma Sheriff et al describing them as people returning to where they rightfully belong.

…Back To Kailahun and The Irony of The Legendary Court ‘Barray’

Sierra Leoneans would recall the electoral malpractice that was perpetrated by then ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) in Kailahun Court ‘Barray’ during the 2007 Presidential run-off election which warranted the National Electoral Commission (NEC) to cancel the results in addition to other places where vote rigging was proved beyond all reasonable doubt.

With this in mind, when I was called upon by the organizers of a recent programme facilitated by the President Koroma APC-led government through Paramount Chief Al-Amin Kanneh of Baoma Koya chiefdom and Ahmed Sesay –Secretary General of ECOPOD to provide levels of assistance to surviving families of late victims killed in a gruesome road accident along the Kenema-Kailahun road, I was eager to accompany them so as to gauge the changing political dynamics.

SALONE IS TOO SMALL FOR TRIBALISM

When issues of racism, nepotism or tribalism are unveiled in a public forum, it is a serious and grave cause for concern. The requirements of peaceful co-existence mandate that we should find strength in our diversity and that our communities must benefit from the variety of inputs and the myriad of backgrounds and socializations that imbues that diversity. However, a diverse and culturally self-assured organization does not happen by chance. It is the result of a willful effort by its membership to create a conducive environment so that their engagements at all levels combine to build that atmosphere of equality, openness and transparency. Such an open and fluid interaction amongst people of different backgrounds augurs well for the process of change and dynamism which makes for organically growing organizations.
