PRESIDENT KOROMA UNDER ATTACK- Spectator Newspaper

The constitutional powers of the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone to appoint ministers, heads of MDA’s, ambassadors and high commissioners, and other strategic national positions seem to be hunting the President, according to some political analysts.

A school of thought has asserted that all the presidential appointees are so beholding to him that they fear declaring support for any successor of the President.

It is muted within the ruling All People’s Congress (APC) circles that since President Ernest Bai Koroma has kept sealed lips over his successor, stalwarts in the party fear that anyone that would dare declare support for someone to succeed him would face his wrath.

It could be recalled that there have been speculations in the local tabloids about who should succeed the President but none of the names mentioned have come out public except the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Sierra Rutile Limited (SRL), Mr. John Bonor Sisay, who has now formed his own political movement called JBS Movement.

“Though the President’s successor has to be elected or selected at the national convention ahead of the next presidential election, yet everyone has to be careful because President Koroma as the incumbent would have the final say as to who should succeed him and that is why party stalwarts should be very careful not to step on his toes,” asserted a political analyst.

Though State House has long distanced itself from a “third term of office” campaign for the President, the silence over who should succeed him has ignited another debate as to whether the President would run for third term when his second term expires.

Some of the names that have come up as the President’s successor include the Deputy Chairman/Leader of the APC, Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray, who is also Minister of Mines and Mineral Resources, Regional Chairman Western Area, Capt. Allieu Pat-Sowe, who is Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, and Vice President Ambassador Victor Bockarie Foh.

I really do wish I was able to better understand the finer details of this subject but much of this is confusing to me. I am probably going to purchase a white wine tomorrow.
