The main opposition SLPP (Sierra Leone People’s Party) held their final rally in the Western Area (Rural and Urban) yesterday.

With barely nine days to polling day (7th March), the party’s Presidential candidate, Brig. (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio is riding high in each and every opinion poll conducted in the country.

Brig. (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio is running for the Presidency for the second time. In 2012, he won the Presidential elections but lost the results to incumbent President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.

Being the architect of peace and democracy in Sierra Leone, Brig (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio allowed the falsified results announced by the then Chairperson of NEC (National Electoral Commission), Christiana Thorpe to stand.

In his Party’s 2018 Manifesto, Brig. (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio wrote, “For these 2018 elections let there be no mistake. The SLPP will not accept results of elections that are not credible and transparent and not a true reflection of the will of the electorate. Furthermore we insist that the election environment must completely eschew any form of intimidation or the use or threat of violence”.
