A Disabled Activist Prefers Minkailu's ‘Positive Traits’ to Succeed Ernest
By Editayo G. Temple (18/05/17)
The popularity of Mines Minister and the APC Deputy Chairman Minkailu Mansaray continues to sky-rocket for the APC flag-bearer slot.
Mr. John Sandy, a disabled human rights activist said: "Sierra Leone is in dare need of Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray's experience and unifier traits to continue upholding, reviewing and improving the legacy and development strides instituted by his boss president Ernest Bai Koroma. (Pictured: Minister Minkailu Mansaray).
Reports say Mr. Sandy made this statement recently whilst addressing a cross section of his constituents (the disabled), at the Cotton Tree in Freetown, where many of them hustle for their daily bread.
The human rights activist made this claim putting into cognisance the current division in the APC, following the Sam Sumanah fiasco. He noted it is prudent to have a presidential material with experience and unification qualities as part of his or her characteristics for the office under review and in turn mend fences when necessary.
One who could even extend olive branch to his critics and political opponents, despite the odds, for the general good, would be of tremendous benefits to not only the indomitable All People's Congress (APC), political institution, but the country as a whole.
Be it as it may, it is in light of the aforementioned that Mr. Sandy is oblivious of the fact that Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray has done exemplary well for members of the disable community in Sierra Leone.
He seized this opportunity to call on President Koroma, potential delegates and members of the National Advisory Council (NAC) of the APC, to elect or select Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray as their 2018 Presidential Hopeful, noting that he has what it takes to cross the bridge.
