Alfred Peter Conteh writes to the APC membership

Alfred Peter Conteh’s Fight For Equal Access For All APC Members Continues.

A message of concern.  

21st December 2022. 

Good Evening Members of the ITGC and Season Greetings to you all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance. 

I write to caution all of us, especially those tasked with the responsibilities of making decisions that will affect other comrades of the ITGC and the APC party as a whole and we must be aware that our decisions and focus as a committee must be for the general good of our people to leveling the playing field for all and not just few. The audio of Hon. Amb. Rev. Coleson Turay and the tweet purported to have come from the Secretary of the Committee in which a photo shows data entry staffs described as members working round the clock to enter some sort of data that we, including myself, the chairman of the ITGC are unaware of. This and other similar actions speaks volume to the lingering divide that some are more APC than others. Hon. Coleson Turay was denied access to several empty offices at the party office for the simple fact of not belonging to certain groups in the APC. Let me remind you that not giving access to a court appointed official to execute a court mandated task is contempt, by definition. 
Myself and others in the committee are seeing unilateral decisions and actions that are not pointing to a unified committee. These ongoing actions are not just unfortunate, but to some extent, uncivilized. There are complaints and problems arising from the general membership that needs to be addressed collectively, as no one person is allowed to make major decisions without the knowledge of the committee. 

The Sub Committee tasked with executing the membership issues under Article 10 of the 2022 APC constitution are enthusiastic and has shown the expected determination to deliver, and as a result of executing this overwhelming task, they’ve ignored the much needed aspects to communicate with the ITGC, and most of all, to embrace the spirit of unity and fairness in executing their task. The opportunity for our members to have a party card is highly cherished, but to their disappointment they felt as though they were disenfranchised against by the Sub Committee. Thousands went home with bitterness towards our party and others are hellbent on causing violence on the day of the voting. These could have been avoided had we adopted the spirit of inclusiveness for all those who are willing to register and meets the requirements. 
I will stop here for now. 

We shall discuss these aspects and others extensively in our meeting tomorrow, God willing. 

Stay blessed,
Alfred Peter Conteh. 
Chairman, APC-ITGC

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead".

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer. Dominion University PHD award ceremony From this point on, Dr. John Idriss Lahai began to expose Sierra Leoneans who, in his opinion, had earned questionable academic credentials. He then began to draw attention from people from all

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
