The former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection in the government of Ernest Bai Koroma, Dr Slyvia Blyden has called on the Chairman of the All People Congress, former President Koroma to step down as head of the party to give way for a fresh generation of party leaders with vigour to lead.
She called on members of the APC to join her in thanking Ernest Bai Koroma and say a permanent goodbye to him as head of the party. She noted that Ernest Bai Koroma must resign as head of the party for Sierre Leone’s democracy to be saved. In an audio recording, Dr Blyden said: “To solve Sierra Leone’s democratic woes, it is not Maada Bio but Ernest Bai Koroma who must go. Sierra Leone’s problem is not just with the government. We have the absence of effective opposition to checkmate excesses of governing SLPP.”
She also thanked other APC hierarchy comrades namely the Deputy Chairman Minkailu Mansaray, the APC National Secretary General Osman Yansaneh, and others for their services but added this warning: “We now need a transparent, modern APC team to restore Sierra Leone’s lofty democratic credentials.
“I call on all APC Comrades to distance themselves from Adebayo’s call to remove Maada Bio/SLPP unconstitutionally. Adebayo’s call is dangerously futile and fails to understand Ernest Koroma’s current lack of leadership is a problem”, she noted.We need an effective opposition who can use democratic tools to ensure the removal of SLPP through due process. The current APC team cannot do it because of blackmail, etc. Join me to thank EBK Team for past services but they must go,” Dr Sylvia Olayinka Blyden. (Social Media broadcaster Adebayo blasted for calling for the overthrow of President Bio).
