The Regional Chairman of the National Grand Coalition (NGC), Arthur E Pearce has tendered his resignation to the party this afternoon.
His resignation is in less than 24 hours from the higher echelons of the party. Yesterday evening, the party’s Diaspora Coordinator, Alan Luke resigned from the party.
Pearce said the reason for his resignation is because the party has lost his initial trajectory for which it was formed about six years ago.
“I strongly believe that an Alliance or Political Partnership with the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) at this particular time will kill public trust,” Pearce said in an open letter to the public.
The reason for his resignation was also echoed by Luke yesterday who cited that the party’s ‘Salone Fos’ mantra has been shrouded by self-interest from some members within the party.
The NGC is Sierra Leone’s third largest party with over 40,000 people voting for them in the previous presidential election.
Many of their supporters are Sierra Leoneans in the diaspora and young people who are fed up with the country’s two main parties.
The recent resignation galore has waned hopes for the party to better their previous performance in the June 2023 elections.
Late last week, the party’s leaders indicated that the party will form an alliance with the SLPP although it has noty been formalised.
