Sierra Leone MPs Beg ECOWAS Parliament to Resend Peace Mission in June!

By Chinelo Chikelu (06/06/18)

The ECOWAS Parliament has agreed to send their MPs on a peacekeeping mission in Freetown as requested by the Sierra Leone Parliament.



The decision announced by the ECOWAS Speaker, Moustapha Cisse Lo, came at the request of the beleaguered Sierra Leone parliamentarians who have been experiencing disquiet and violence since the SLPP government of President Julius Maada Bio assumed power. (Photo: Parliamentarians in Sierra Leone).

Reports say the ECOWAS peace mission MPs are expected to jet in again to Sierra Leone in June to mediate and to smoothen the lingering tensions in the country.

Addressing the Speaker, Hon. Shiaka Sama, said although the parliament had successfully mediated over the political conflict of Sierra Leone’s parliament, the latest attack on the Mayor of Freetown, Yvonne Aki-Sawyer, on May 24, had raised tensions in the country.

Sama called on the ECOWAS Parliament to resend the peacekeeping mission to Sierra Leone to help ameliorate the ongoing tensions between the ruling SLPP party and the main opposition APC party.

Meantime, Hon. Mahama Ayariga, advised the peacekeeping mission should be sent sometime in June in order to adhere to the country’s election policy - that all election matters must be addressed within 4 months after the election.

Hon. Mohammed Lafiagi, advised the return mission to Sierra to be headed by the Chair of the Political Affairs, Peace, Security and APRM, Yahya Sangare, to include some members of the original mission, to ensure smooth deliberation.
