…BUT SOME SETBACKS SEEN IN THE NORTH AS APC BEGINS TO CONSOLIDATE STRONGHOLD AND PMDC CONTINUES EAST MARCH
The achievements of the Sierra Leone People’s Party ( SLPP) in the Western Area among the students and Mambolo Town , have been tempered by reports that the opposition All People’s Congress ( APC ) itself is digging its spurs in as it looks to consolidate its stronghold in the North while the People’s Movement For Democratic Change ( PMDC) continues its infilteration of the SLPP strongholds in the South/East . From Freetown, Joseph Kamanda reports :
Nonetheless, the SLPP is said to have been faced with set backs in Northern Province where the opposition All Peoples’ Congress is presently gaining support.
In an exclusive interview with COCORIOKO.NET outside the hall immediately after the ceremony, an anonymous senior SLPP stalwart, revealed that the current relationship between the government and the party is not that cordial or coordinated as it used to be. ” We are not being motivated and there is not frequent communication between us and government and the national executive of the SLPP is not recognized by the leadership of Presidential candidate Solomon Berewa,” he said.
