Presenting the APC membership cards to Mohamed Osman Sesay and two others, the Leader and Presidential candidate of the APC in the July 28th elections, Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma said; “By virtues of my position as a leader of the APC, I accept our brothers into the fold of the APC and offer them all the facilities in the party.” He said that Mr. Sesay was a “strong man in the SLPP” but sees all reasons to come over to the APC. “Therefore I want to welcome him to the party.”
Mr. Koroma further stated that the three SLPP men have foreseen the future of Sierra Leone in the hands of the APC, thus their decision of coming over to the party can be beneficial to the entire Koinadugu district. He noted that Foday Lady and his colleagues were tired of hearing news of the unfulfilled promises made by the SLPP government and that is why they have bid farewell to the SLPP. Mr. Koroma said that people are moving from the SLPP because they believe that in the reformation of the APC and the quality leadership of Hon. Ernest Bai Koroma.
In responses, one of the defected members, Mohamed Osman Sesay, told COCORIOKO.NET that he was disappointed with the leadership of the SLPP for not living up to the expectation of the masses.Sesay , who is of the view that the SLPP has failed, further admited failure on the part of his former party. “That’s why I have made up my mind to come onboard the APC political ban wagon to make the necessary change. “
