Brig. (Rtd.) Julius Maada Bio noted that with such an overwhelming and unshakable support he has from Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad, he has no doubt that he will not only win the party flagbearer position but he will also clinch the Presidency of Sierra Leone.
He thanked SLPP supporters everywhere for staying the cause and for believing in his leadership, noting that, their support and faith will be translated in to capturing State House come 2018.
Brig. (Rtd.) Julius Maada Bio, a doctoral candidate at Bradford University returned to UK after months of research work in Sierra Leone.
He told his supporters that while in the country, he had the opportunity of assessing his chances in the flagbearer race and of the Presidency which he said were “very good and very encouraging”.
The SLPP will continue with the conduct of internal elections later this month, after going through the first tier of its lower level elections under the supervision of the PPRC (Political Parties Registration Commission).
The elections will be climaxed by a National Delegates Conference where a new set of National Officers of the Party will be elected.
