Over 200 supporters of the ruling All People Congress ( APC) of Sierra Leone in constituency 50 in Portloko District have defected to the Alliance democratic Party (ADP.
They defectors stated that President Ernest Bai Koroma cannot effectively manage the affairs of the country and that they have finally decided to quit the APC and join the ADP because of the ongoing corruption and economic problems facing ordinary Sierra Leoneans in the country and the unconstitutional and dictatorial leadership of President Ernest Bai Koroma .
The spokesperson of the group of defectors one Abdul Y.Turay observed that President Koroma started his leadership failure with his dubios and corrupt approaches in the economic and health (Ebola )crisis coupled with his forceful removal of the elected Vice President Alhadji Chief Samuel Sam-Sumana.
Mr Turay further explained that President Koroma’s leadership and management respect has been eroded and that he is urging other Sierra Leoneans to vote against the APC party in the forth-coming 2018 elections.
“ We are fed up with the economic crisis facing the country and the high cost of living. We have joined the change-calls of the majority of Sierra Leoneans who are calling for a change of government” ; the defectors complained.
There is no doubt that Sierra Leone’s economy is quickly deteriorating as a result of rampant corruption and the mismanagement of the APC government under the leadership of Dr Ernest Bai Koroma.
