The Leader & Chairman of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP), Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray has on Monday 27th February, 2017 described allegations made against him by his Deputy Chairman, Ibrahim Soummah as malicious fabrication.

It could be recalled that on Tuesday 21st February, 2017, the Deputy Chairman of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP) Ibrahim Soummah wrote a letter of complaint to the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) against his Chairman & Leader, Mohamed K. Mansaray accusing him of corruption, lack of transparency and accountability and called on the PPRC to investigate his boss.

In his briefing to the press, the ADP made the following clarifications on allegations raised against Kamarainba; that all allegations contained in the said letter are malicious, baseless, unfounded and unsubstantiated. That Mr. Soummah’s intentionwas deliberate attempt to sacrifice the soul of the party on the altar of selfishness, greed and corruption. He added that Mr.Soummah’s lies are very clear indication of his malicious intent to upset progress and destroy the Alliance Democratic Party for the sake of another political party that is already aggravated by the political gains and successes achieved by the Alliance Democratic Party in less than two years in operation. He Furthermore,the Alliance Democratic Party has regrettably learnt that Mr. Ibrahim Soummah is now treading on footprints of its former Secretary General, David Gbla whose clandestine plot to wreck the ADP failed woefully.
A press statement dated 27th February, 2017 and signed by the Secretary General of the ADP, Madam Isata Abdulai Kamara states “The ADP wishes it to be known that the National Chairman and Leader, Mr. Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray has nothing to hide and therefore calls on Ibrahim Soummah to publicly disclose evidences to back up his claims;whilst calling on the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC)to look to the matter with alacrity”.
“The ADP wishes it to be known that its National Executive Officers, Diaspora Executive branches and general membership of the party have distanced and disassociated themselves from the malicious fabrication,” the release ended.
All efforts to get on to Ibrahim Soummah for his response before publication remained unproductive. However, the Awareness Times Newspaper promised to make public the response of Ibrahim Soummah, Deputy Chairman of the ADP at any time he picks his call.
