News filtering out of the headquarters of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party, SLPP is that there is a lot of corruption involved in the issuing of party membership cards.
Reports are that some party officials, in order to create an unequal playing field for a particular flag bearer aspirant have issued out unauthorized contribution cards bearing the signatures of only the chairman and leader and the suspended secretary general.
They are also alleged to have issued out membership cards bearing the signatures of these two executive officials as well as receipts signed by persons purporting to be SLPP party officials.
It has been discovered that these cards and receipts are forgeries.
“The masterminds behind this scam,” one party official on condition of anonymity said, “intend to influence the outcome of the forthcoming primary elections.”
Said to be deeply involved in this unauthorized act are officials in the administrative and financial departments.
