The Elected but relieved Vice President of Sierra Leone, Alhaji Samuel Sam Sumana has exposed the President of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma.
Sam Sumana was speaking to the Voice of America (VOA) where he described his former Boss, Ernest Bai Koroma as a dictator.
He disclosed how he was inhumanly treated by President Koroma because he was against the extension of his term beyond the constitutional two terms of five years each.
“I was told by someone that I have to leave my house or I will be killed and as a result, I therefore went to the University for my life,” Sam Sumana claimed.
He said that he later called on the Head of the Presidential Guard who told him he was ordered by President Koroma to remove all his security even though he was still a sitting Vice President.
“My sacking was precipitated by the fact that the President wanted an unconstitutional third term and I did not subscribe to it. I know President Koroma better. Based on the fact that he did not succeed for a third term, of course, could also not secure himself an extension of two years…, his best bet was to do what he did to me,” Sumana uncovered.
He stated that the APC got him out of the way because getting him out would have prepared Koroma’s operation of third term, but with the intervention of international community and the people of Sierra Leone, he failed woefully.
He explained that he never abandoned his job and that even the US Embassy explained that he did not go there at any point to seek for asylum.
