Freetown — An All People's Congress (APC) Member of Parliament has accused the Sierra Leone People's Party (SLPP) of intolerance and depriving its members from being democratic.
While making his contribution yesterday to the presidential address which is under deliberation at the parliament, Hon. Alimamy A. Kamara of constituency 29, Bombali district, said the SLPP failed to practice democracy and refused to be dynamic hence Sierra Leone did not develop.
"If Sierra Leone has to go forward, we have to correct our mistakes and differences," he said adding that the President Ernest Koroma is ready to work with all Sierra Leoneans to move the country forward.
He said the SLPP has been intolerant since it took over as the opposition and has deprived its members from holding highly-ranked positions for the development of the country even though every Sierra Leonean has the right to hold any position as long as he or she is capable of handling it.
He said Sierra Leoneans should help build the government, communities and the country as a whole to acquire the prosperity the president has acclaimed and people should stop complaining but should work hard and be disciplined in order for the prosperity to be attained.
He maintained that young people in the country should work hard in their different localities to develop the country instead of complaining of being neglected.
He said President Koroma has dedicated his whole lifetime in office to the young people of this country and there could be no nation without the participation of the youth.
