Chairman of the Interim transitional Governance Committee (ITGC) of the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC), Alfred Peter Conteh has reportedly expressed shock at the press statement circulating on social media on provisional voters’ registration results with imaginary figures.

According to report, the press statement was not to the knowledge of Alfred Peter Conteh and was therefore not approved by him, adding that the figures in the press statement are unfounded, false and do not reflect the sactual results as collated by the APC registration team headed by Ahmed Sesay Esq.

The Interim Chairman therefore warned the public and party members and supporters to discountenance the press statement that has gone viral on social media, noting that the Interim Chairman and the Coordination Team headed by Ahmed Sesay Esq. will shortly provide the 100% provincial results collated.

Alfred Peter Conteh also warned that those who have taken upon themselves to issue out press statements on behalf of the APC without his approval as Interim Chairman must desist from doing so with immediate effect.

Prior to the reaction of the Interim Chairman to the so-called APC press statement, many concerned Sierra Leoneans had challenged the authenticity of the voter registration provisional results, given that both the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL) and the National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA) are still working on the Voter Identification Unit (VIU) to come out with the final voter registration results by districts and regional. ECSL is therefore expected to come out with the provisional voter registration results upon completion of the VIU which is ongoing around the country.
