Sierra Leone Politics : Politically-tolerant APC in every Nook & Cranny

Ambassador Alhaji Osman Foday Yansaneh, the National Secretary General of Sierra Leone’s ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) has pointed out that the APC is a national party with a firm grip in every single corner of the country even as he extolled the awesome political tolerance of His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma. He was speaking on Saturday 5th September 2015 at the event to turn the sod by President Koroma for the construction of the APC Northern Region party office along Magburaka Highway in Makeni, Bombali District.

 

Speaking in his capacity as Chairman of the party’s ongoing Construction Committee that is overseeing the erection of sub-party structures across the country, Ambassador Yansaneh said the presence of the APC in every nook and cranny of Sierra Leone is a clear indication that the APC is the only political party that has the impetus to govern the country and promote national unity especially with the high level of political tolerance that the party has shown itself to have under the leadership of President Koroma as Chairman & Leader.

 

“As per the requirement of the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC), the APC is the only political party with effective structures in every corner of the country,’’ he said.

 

“Everywhere is a stronghold for the APC,’’ he continued to say, adding the APC is consolidating its support by empowering party operatives all over the country.

 

The APC, he added, will continue to construct and or refurbish party structures in all the four corners of the country.

 

“The APC Party is a party for all. Whether rich or poor, young or old, and even with other different affiliations and sentiments, you are considered very important,” he maintained, adding, the APC is growing as a result of the fact that the party believes in inclusiveness, tied up with constructive nationalism, which enjoins all compatriots to put party before self and to have a say in the governance of the country.

 

Ambassador Yansaneh stated that the construction of the Northern Region headquarters in Makeni is the beginning of massive decentralization projects the Party intends to undertake.

 

“We are going to ensure our districts, regions, constituencies and zonal operatives function effectively in order for them to continue to preach the gospel of the APC, which is: addressing the needs and aspirations of the common man and woman in the street,’’ Comrade Yansaneh revealed, adding, the APC is a political institution, which young politicians must benefit from.

 

He noted that the APC is the only political party that played a lead role in the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease that was now being stalled in its tracks.

 

“Our chapters abroad contributed immensely by providing medical equipment and other gears in order to be part of the Ebola response,” he noted, adding that whilst the APC support was spontaneously given, in the case of other political parties, the President of Sierra Leone had to reach out to actively solicit support of other political parties.

 

Ambassador Yansaneh extolled the leadership qualities of President Koroma by highlighting that after soliciting support of other political parties, the President invited them to join his Presidential Task Force to combat the disease because “our President is a listening president” whose leadership style encapsulates political tolerance.

 

He opined that it was History in the making for an incumbent leader to share platform with opposition politicians, all in the name of the common good, to chart a way forward to address a national problem that Ebola turned out to be.
