First of all, I am not political nor support any political party.
However, I am just coming back from Sierra Leone with tears of how the Country, our beloved Sierra Leone has been divided regionally( 4 Universities in the North, 1 in the South, 1 in the City & nothing in the East).
This has changed my nonpolitical mind to be a political sympathizer in favor of your party (SLPP).
Furthermore, one measure of a leader is the group of advisors and associates he/she selects to help fulfill the mission( MUST WIN the forthcoming election). If you have genuinely selected the right team, you must share the wealth of the Country equally. But if the team is poorly chosen without discernment and coordination, the mission suffers, worst fails. For this, the country will hold you all responsible.
YOU MUST WIN, WIN, and WIN. You must not forget your opponents as they do not have any democratic fiber in the makeup and do not take anything for granted. Use the best weapon in today world,.Com, nothing but .com. Use the best stewards at provincial, regional, district, town & village level.
Is APC still looking to find something, anything on Dr. Jalloh? Desperation from the APC party is evidence everywhere today, as they lose grip of the country. But so many of us know that Dr. Juldeh Jallon is not only a proud Sierra Leonean, but he had always held close to his native Sierra Leone. And there is one thing to add; Dr. Jalloh is so humbled that his warm smile always follows when he is called ‘Juldeh, without the Dr. This is because he earned the degree and he merits it. And while others go around talking about their education, this young and enterprising politician slowly, but surely rose to power to be the second most senior political figure in Sierra Leone, as the next Vice President on March 7th, 2018. He is a very modest man, in his dealing with the Party and with his people. I do not have a doubt that Dr. Juldeh Jalloh will prove who he truly is to Sierra Leone, and to the world, what a true Sierra Leone son, he is to his people and to the SLPP Party. Dr. Juldeh Jalloh, we have faith in you quiet leadership and we trust that you will provide all the necessary support to the next President of Sierra Leone; Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio. Keep marching on to Victory. Maada Bio has your back.
We are watching their every move.
