The Chairman of the National Grand Coalition (NGC) Party, Dr. Dennis Bright has resigned from the party in the afternoon.

“In recent times, there have been significant differences within the top leadership of the party on key issues that have to do with the future of the NGC,” Dr. Bright noted in a letter addressed to the Secretary-General of the party.

He said his resignation is in tandem with a request from his family who feel that the current situation renders them unsafe.

His resignation is recorded to be the fourth senior executive to have resigned from the party in just over 24 hours.

The spate of resignation is linked by some political analysts to comments made by the party’s former presidential candidate in the 2018 elections, Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella. Dr. Yumkella in audio made clear his intention to bolster his relationship with President Bio and the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP).

On Tuesday afternoon, the resignation galore was started by the Diaspora Coordinator, Alan Luke tendered his resignation from the party followed by the Regional Chairman, Arthur E. Pearce together with the recently elected Deputy Secretary, Nyamacoro Silla, both resigning on Wednesday afternoon.

The reason for the resignation of all four top executive members of the party is similar. The executive members cited that the party has lost its trajectory and object for which it was founded. Some believe that there are members at the higher echelons of the party that have put their interest above the party’s.

This resignation galore from the NGC has left some Sierra Leoneans in awe given the fact that the party just held its delegate conference.

The party which polled over 40,000 votes are on the brink of collapse after its formation about 5 years ago and with months to the general elections.

Many of the party’s supporters are Sierra Leoneans in the diaspora and young locals who detest the two main political parties in the country.
