Former Sierra Leone Attorney General and PMDC Leader, Francis Charles Margai, has in a release denied claims of the APC that his party has consented to an alliance with them.
This came shortly after a wide circulation of a video of the party’s former Secretary General announcing that the former PMDC Leader has joined forces with the APC for the forthcoming June 24, 2023 elections.
He described the act as misleading and an effort to decimate his political character.
Margai disclosed that indeed the APC had approached him about such alliance which he did not agreed to but told them to hang on inoder for him to consult his party.
He therefore advised the general public to dismiss the video and its contents in its entirety.
Read full release below:
“I have seen a very misleading video making the rounds on social media in which the All People’s Congress Party former Secretary General Mr. Osman Foday Yansaneh is claiming that I have again joined forces with the APC for the forthcoming June 24, 2023 elections, as I did in 2007.
The general public is hereby informed by this notice, that the purported claim is not only misleading but intended to decimate my political character. Indeed some members of the APC approached me to team up with them in the June 24 general elections, but I told them in very explicit terms that I’ll consult with my PMDC hierarchy and will make public our collective decision. After consultations with my Party, and getting an invite from the leadership of the Coalition for Change, and in consideration that our two parties are yearning for change, we decided to form a Coalition.
As an individual I have never agreed with the APC to join them in the June 24 elections. Whosoever is peddling such news is spreading misinformation. The contents of the video are not the factual representation of Mr. Charles Francis Margai.
The general public is therefore advised to dismiss the video and its contents in its entirety.
Charles Francis Margai.
