The signing of the SLPP-NGC alliance agreement at the Bintumani conference is a significant step towards inclusive governance and national cohesion in Sierra Leone. This alliance is not just about the upcoming June 24th elections, but rather a commitment to a long-term partnership for transformational development in the country.
Today, @PresidentBio and @KYumkella danced, smiled and spoke from their hearts about forging a progressive Alliance. The auditorium was electrifying as much as it was promising with shared hopes of building a progressive country. #LightUp pic.twitter.com/s51ZNjgYpM

Opposing viewpoints suggest that the SLPP should focus on reconciling within the party rather than forming alliances. However, the SLPP has already made significant strides in this regard and the alliance with NGC only strengthens their vision for a more united Sierra Leone.
Furthermore, the SLPP has proven its track record of achievements in government with visible progress in education, healthcare, infrastructure, and more. The NGC’s decision to form an alliance with the SLPP is a testament to the ruling party’s experience and success in national elections.
The SLPP-NGC alliance is grounded in the belief that diversity should be a strength, not a weakness, and that every Sierra Leonean, regardless of background, ethnicity, or political affiliation, should have a voice in the decision-making processes of the nation. Inclusive governance and national cohesion are the pillars of this alliance, and the commitment to these ideals is what will propel Sierra Leone forward towards a brighter future.
As Sierra Leoneans, we must all join hands in this noble endeavor. Let us work towards building bridges, mending relationships, and healing the wounds of the past. We have experienced our fair share of challenges, but we must not let political or ethnic differences divide us to the point of conflict. Instead, let us focus on building a prosperous and united Sierra Leone that is anchored on the rule of law, good governance, and accountability.
The SLPP-NGC alliance is a significant milestone in our journey towards a more inclusive, united, and prosperous Sierra Leone. As we celebrate this achievement, let us also look towards the future with hope, optimism, and determination to push our country forward. Together, we can shape a brighter future for Sierra Leone, where all citizens have an equal opportunity to thrive and prosper.
