Sierra Leone’s main opposition party, the All People’s Congress (APC) has raised concerns over a purported constitutional review process of the 1991 constitution of Sierra Leone by the Bio administration. 

Lansana Dumbuya, the APC’s National Secretary-General, in an official statement, emphasized the significance of genuine legal changes that bolster Sierra Leone’s democracy. Yet, the current environment, characterized by an evident lack of trust and a deeply divided political landscape, doesn’t bode well for such a crucial initiative.

The APC said it views this as a calculated and insensitive move by the current administration, aiming to instigate a constitutional upheaval and jeopardize the nation’s peace and stability.

“This is a deliberate and callous attempt by the regime to provoke a constitutional crisis and subvert the peace and security of the state. The party takes grave exception to that move and calls on the government to immediately put a stop to it,” the statement reads.
