APC Upset -Amb. Yansaneh Confesses


By Thomas S. Kembay

The National Secretary General of the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC), Alhaji Amb. Osman Foday Yansaneh has disclosed that the party became even more upset when it realized that the Chief Justice had taken side in the ongoing controversial debate over the setting up of the commissions of inquiry, rather than remaining neutral.

“The APC was even more appalled that in his statement at the launch of the Commissions of Inquiry, the Chief Justice of the Republic of Sierra Leone who is expected to be the custodian of the law in the country has seemingly taken a partisan position that is firmly consistent with that already taken by the President and his Government,” fumed Amb. Yansaneh.

APC, he emphasised, is ready to face the rule of law and not the rule of man that is against the country’s constitution.

The APC scribe went on to state that their party has always withheld the principles and tenants of good governance and democracy and that nothing will sway them away from that, whilst emphasising that the APC is ready to face the full force of the law through constitutionality and the rule of law.

“Our position of non-compliance with the Commissions of Inquiry remains sacrosanct,” he insisted.

National Publicity Secretary of the party Cornelius Deveaux also reiterated that APC will not subject itself to any illegal commissions of inquiry, pointing out that any law that contravenes the 1991 constitution is considered null and void.
