Wotey Dura, Acting Secretary
APC Western Region
ACCEPTANCE OF OPOLOGY
I write to formerly accept apologies of the All People’s Congress (APC) following brutal attack meted me by some of their members including the former deputy trades minister Ibrahim Worshinguy Mansaray, businessman Sanusi K. Bruski, daughter of former president Koroma, Dankay Koroma and former government spokesperson Abubakarr Daramy.
My acceptance of the apology is based on the fact that senior members of the party’s hierarchy have approached me on behalf of persons that regrettably assaulted me on polling day 31st March, 2018, whilst performing my duty as accredited journalist monitoring the exercise.
I must here also state it that the APC party has had engagements with the leadership of my parent organization (The Sierra Leone Association of Journalists), formerly and ethically appologising for wrongs as done by some of their members to a member of the journalism fraternity (myself) during the just concluded run-off presidential elections.
As a Christian follower, I am naturally bound by forgiveness nonetheless and, of course, as a journalist, I am to competently make the news and not be the news maker.
To this, however, it is but human and professional of my person wholeheartedly accepting apologies of one of Sierra Leone’s oldest political parties (The APC), more so that they have done same to my organization SLAJ and have come out public to not only apologizing, but unequivocally condemning the act.
