The main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party yesterday admitted in to membership of the party the former UNIDO boss, Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella as Distinguished Grand Chief Patron at the party’s National Headquarters in Freetown.
Dr. Yumkella was not present when his registration was being processed but was ably represented by the party’s Deputy Regional Chairman North, Dr. Alusine Fofana and the Kambia District Chairman, O S Fofana.
He was issued a receipt number 0019054 after paying three million, five hundred and twenty thousand Leones, a one year subscription for Grand Chief Patron.
Kambia District Constituency 41 where the former UN man filled out the registration form is not allowed to process that category of membership and was forwarded to SLPP headquarters.
Afterwards, Dr. Alusine Fofana told Global Times that the registration rather than divide will unite the SLPP.
