The National Advisory Committee (NAC) of the main opposition All Peoples Congress (APC) Tuesday 8th September, 2020 reached a unanimous decision to reinstates the former Vice President Chief Alhaji Sam Sumana as an APC member, in a meeting held at the party’s headquarters in Makeni.
The APC National Secretary General Alhaji Dr. Osman Foday Yansaneh said that after Alhaji Sam Sumana applied a month ago, the party executive was able to pass on his documents to NAC for consideration.
“Due to the party’s delegate’s conference that was abruptly cancelled in Port Loko and the Corona Virus, the party was unable to meet and take decision that are needed to enhance the growth of the party.
After consultation with Political Parties’ Registration Commission (PPRC) if we can go ahead with our lower level elections, and we were told not to, the party second highest decision making body (NAC) decided to meet and clear up all what we have in the pipeline. One such decision to take was to reinstate the former Vice President, which we have done and he is back in the party with renewed vigour,” said the APC scribe.
The APC National Secretary General highlighted the court case, and that they cannot continue with the elections until the case is finally settled. He said NAC will continue to dialogue with aggrieved persons and he is optimistic there will be amicable settlement.
“Even though they held a press conference on Monday, we understood them clearly and know what they want and we will talk with them and settle this matter once and for all. We will move on to make sure that we are well prepared for the 2023 election,” opined by the Secretary General Yansanneh.
It could be recalled that Alhaji Chief Sam Sumana was asked out of the APC and he later joined the C4C which took Kono district in 2018 general elections.
