The Secretary General of the All People’s Congress (APC) Party, Lansana Dumbuya Esq on the media expresses the reason his party did not publish their results at hand earlier.
He said, “The reason why we (APC) did not publish our results earlier was a matter of STRATEGY. We wanted to publish our results at a time when we cannot get any dilution.”
He also said that they realized that the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) had removed a result they posted online and then on their page which he said was a thing that everyone observed them putting the results there and removing it again because people started noticing they were wrong. He said results should not get that kind of ‘serious contamination.’
He said they had wanted to publish their results at a time they would not have any ‘dilution’ from anywhere whatsoever.
“We want to get it and have our RRF forms to back each and every results we put out. Even from Bonthe we have the RRF forms and they will surprise how we had those RRF forms and we have for Bo, Kailahun RRF forms even though they try to beat,” he said.
He said there were clips of violence with relatives hurt one another because of the election in the Southeast region while referencing a man who received serious injuries from his stomach to chest.
He warned that if they had done the same thing in Freetown and the North then the country should have gone into chaos but they wanted to show that the APC is a very responsible party that has the country at heart. He added that that thought prompted them to treat the country and people with respect.
