The Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) led government of President Rtd. Brig Julius Maada Bio is celebrating its fourth year in governance since it took further year in governance since it took over power from the All Peoples Congress (APC) in 2018.

However, the National Publicity Secretary of APC, Sidi Yayah Tunis has described the entire four years of Bio’s rule as a colossal failures in all fronts ranging from the state of the economic, human rights, basic service delivery, justice to governance.

Speaking to this press in an exclusive interview, Sidi Yayah Tunis said that since the SLPP took over power in 2018 the country’s economy has been in shambles as inflation continues to rise on a daily basis, while the government human rights records continues to decrease.

According to him since 2018, prices of basic commodities and food stuffs have skyrocketed in an alarming rate, much to be dismay of the unsuspecting populace. Tunis made reference to the rise in price of food and non-food items like rice, fuel, water, electricity, telecommunication, housing, transportation, and many others under the current SLPP government compared to the stability in price that the nation used to enjoy under the ten years of APC rule.

He also spoke on the high rate of human rights abuses and intimidations perpetrated by the current government against the opposition and also youth and women; most of whom, he said, are left unemployed and constantly facing abuses by the powers that be, adding that the justice system in the country is nothing good to write home about as trials are being delayed while some judges, he alleged, take orders from above.

He also decried the current government over what he referred to as “dilapidated state” of the country’s infrastructure noting that the government has nothing new to point at other than the projects and initiatives left behind by the past APC government.

According to The Exclusive Newspaper, Sidi Yayah Tunis also made reference to huge debt incurred by the is SLPP government which has now reached over 30 trillion Leones, adding that with all this huge debts, there is still a huge disparity in wages and salaries of civil servants compared to that of ministers and other government appointees. The  much talked about Wages and Salaries Commission, he said, but that nothing has been done to actualize that.

Meanwhile, the APC National Publicity Secretary is calling on Sierra Leoneans to join the APC in its movement to kick the SLPP out of power come 2023.
