The fight to become the Presidential Aspirant of the Sierra Leone People Party for the 2018 Presidential Elections is becoming nasty and crude as the days go by, as candidates are beginning to accuse each other.
The recent expose was made by the former Minister of Trade in the former President Kabbah’s Government and who is also contesting to become the Presidential Aspirant of the Party, Abdul Rahman Thorlu- Bangura.
Thorlu Bangura said that the SLPP did not sell the oil refinery and that in fact the SLPP established the oil refinery which was a gift from Japan to the people of Sierra Leone.
He accused the former Military Leaders in the National Provisional Ruling Council, Valentine Strasser, Julius Maada Bio, Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella, John Oponjo Benjamin and John Karimu of selling the rifinery.
He furthered that the excuse they gave was that it was a world Bank decision for the oil refinery to be sold but that he was against it because the refinery could have been sold to the a Sierra Leonean and generated lots of money.
He said that the refinery was sold because of 800 Million Leones when the refinery would have made that money for itself, adding that they auction the refinery for 2 Million Dollars when he should have been handled by a management team.
Abdul Rahman Thorlu-Bangura blamed former President Kabbah for maintaining the decision to sell the oil refinery to an outside group that has destroyed everything and left an empty carcass.
