Chairman of the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) last Thursday admonished the leader of the United National People's Party (UNPP), Dr. James Obai Fullah and members of the party to resolve their dispute in the shortest possible time.

Justice M.E. Tolla Thompson also implored the party's executive to lift the suspension on their leader and the leader in turn should also reconsiderthe matter in court.

The PPRC boss made the call during the commission's second mediation meeting between the leader, a cross-section of the UNPP executive and its members at the commission's headquarters in Freetown. After listening to accusations and counter-accusations for two days, Justice Thompson informed the members that he will be meeting with two of the founding members of the UNPP - Mr. Frank Karefa Smart and Haja Memunatu Conteh -and Dr. James Oba iFullah and a cross section of the party's executive on Monday 25th February 2013.

He informed the members that the final mediation meeting will be held on Tuesday 26th February 2013.

Giving the vote of thanks, the leader and flag-bearer of the UNPP, Dr. James Obai Fullah, promised to ensure that their dispute is settled amicably and that he will discuss with his  barrister on the withdrawal of the matter in court.
