Plans to Stop Maada Bio Exposed...Is SLPP at War to Sack Maada?
It is reliably learnt from competent SLPP sources of a grand plan to prevent Julius Maada Bio from running as flag-bearer come 2018.
A senior SLPP officer (who preferred to speak on the grounds of anonymity) said the SLPP constitution will form the basis of this intra party 'coup' against Maada Bio whom many believe continues to command the largest following in the SLPP. (Pictured: SLPP executives and flag-bearers but Maada was conspicuously absent).
This move, if successful, will necessitate a National Executive Council resolution that will see former UN Energy Chief, Dr. Kandeh Yumkellah emerging flag-bearer.
Already, there is war of words going on between Maada Bio and another SLPP factions comprising heavy weights like John Benjamin, Andrew Keili, Chief Somano Kapen and Kandeh Yumkellah etc.
This latest development is lending credence to claims of a grand plan to destroy Maada's stranglehold on the SLPP.
John Benjamin (JOB) was on 98.1 recently accusing Maada of extorting money from supporters to sustain himself in the UK and described the former Brigadier as an "errand boy."
JOB's statement has been seen as a direct response to Mr Bio's scathing attack on members of the Yumkella Coalition.
