Alhaji Usman Boie Kamara informed a jam-packed crowd at his declaration ceremony on Saturday June 9 at the APC Marine House headquarters in Freetown that any body who wishes to be safe in his political aspirations in the country should hold President Koroma as a force to reckon with.
He said such faith in him inspired and boosted the confidence of his followers to declare a – No Run-off campaign phraseology so long as their collaboration continues to hold in the good spirit of nationalism.
Alhaji Usman Boie Kamara made this pronouncement in his maiden speech at the occasion of joining the All People’s Congress party secretariat on Saturday June 9, 2012. Mr. Boie who was dressed in a white Bamako as a mark of serenity with red stripe across the flap was given a red carpet welcome at the APC national headquarters in Freetown.
His supporters were seen putting on attire that appreciated his coming over to the notable mavericks of the APC. Personalities such as the Minister of Lands, Country Planning and the Environment, Alhaji Mamadu Pat-Sowe, Minister of Information and Communication, Alhaji Ibrahim Ben Kargbo and others march-flanked him one hundred yards to the headquarter offices of the APC situated at Old Railway Line Brookfield.
Mr. Kamara said he decided to switch his political alliance to the APC because he believesthe philosophy of a nation does not rest squarely on a platform of one ideology as he entertains a strong sense of nationalism when it comes to national development.
As he put it: “My conception to join the APC party is one tied to the belief that President Koroma is mounting high the torches of developmental growth and healing the cracks of the country more than any other Sierra Leonean has ever done before”.
Mr. Kamara cited verses in the holy Quran in Surah 3 verse 54 which states: “And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.’’ Which implies that, men plan but Allah is the best author of planning. This he said is a qualification of the fact that his paternal political ties with the Sierra Leone People Party (SLPP) was feign.
He said amongst many other things that he has found light at the end of the tunnel in Koroma’s APC and urges all Sierra Leoneans to join the Ark of Hope. He cited the holy books that the herald of Noah, who was given the spiritual mandate to save mankind with the Ark is symbolic to the savior nature of President Koroma who came to restore hopes where they were lost.
Mr. Kamara said his new journey has just begun and that governance is all about trust and sincerity. He described his journey as a decision for him to blend the trends by helping to guide his vision for his beloved country.
Usu Boie cemented his speech by calling on all Sierra Leoneans to be Ambassadors of peace and observe the international environmental day as protecting the ecosystem should be man’s primary concerns as it is the only property we all share.
Mohamed Jabbie one time SLPP Youth Chairman, Southern Region lent his voice to the issue as a member of the rejectionist by the opposition party, he said he is in love with the political character of the APC being that it is a party that draws its support from the ordinary man with little respect to personality.
He said if the party continues on such a path it will have an easy ride to clinch the November polls.
Mr. Jabbie further noted that since his existence, he has never seen a political figure that has helped improve the human conditions of the people of this country as President Koroma. He rapped the obvious that people of the South and Eastern Regions were once referred to as fanatic supporters of the SLPP but as things stand at the moment, many of them have a swinging allegiance.
Major Sengu Koroma, former presidential flag bearer aspirant of the (SLPP), intimated to the August gathering that his decision to cross over to the APC is honor bound as a Sierra Leonean, as he said the way and manner President Koroma has been articulating state issues is one envied even beyond the shores of this country; he has joined the president to write his name in the books of posterity of those who are heralded as the bastions of hope and development of this country.
