A popular and renowned Human and Civil Society activist in the Northern District of Tonkolili has declared for the governing Sierra Leone People’s Party.

Abdul Samad Kamara was the Tonkolili District Coordinator for the Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (CDHR) and a member of the District Human Rights Committee in Tonkolili.

CDHR whose headquarters is in the Northern city of Makeni is a human rights organisation that advocates for democracy, human rights and good governance.

In an exclusive interview with this medium, Samad said, he’s joining the SLPP because he believes in the development trajectory of the party and the current leader, President Julius Maada Bio.

In fact, Samad said, he will be contesting for Member of Parliament in Constituency 049 in Tonkolili District under the SLPP.

“Very soon, I will be nominated for MP under the SLPP,” Samad said.

The human rights activist said he believes in the ideology of the SLPP and is ready to give the party a second term.
