The Members of Parliament (MPs) representing the Coalition for Change (C4C) in Parliament yesterday assured their membership that they will remain stronger as a Party and MPs than ever before, after acknowledging the resignation letter from Alhaji Samuel Sam Sumana. In a letter addressed to the National Secretary General of C4C, Koighor Aloysious Foh, the former Leader of the C4C, Alhaji Samuel Sam Sumana, wrote “We created the party that will serve the political will of the people and we envisioned a country where every citizen will be treated with equal opportunity.” Without stating any specific reason Sam Sumana stated that sadly he is leaving for the “continuation” of his political journey. All the C4C Party Executive present in the press conference at the Party’s Headquarters at Edward Lane, including all the MPs expressed great shock at the decision of their leader, describing it as a great loss to their party. The Whip of C4C in Parliament, Hon Shek David Aiah Kassegbama, assured that nothing would influence their decisions in Parliament, stating they will continue to support government on issues that are of great interest towards the people and also oppose on those that are against national interest. “C4C is the only beacon of hope in Parliament. We are the only Party presenting genuine case on behalf of the people,” said Hon Sahr Charles, explaining that both the APC and SLPP are busy accusing each other on party lines instead of providing representations for their people.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
“We are with heavy hearts at the moment as we will miss Sam Sumana because of his leadership qualities, tenacity among others, but C4C will continue to strive as a formidable political party” said Hon Saa Emerson Lamina. Speaking on the issue of filling in the vacancy of the position of leader, Hon Lamina noted that section 14 of the C4C Constitution made provision for either ‘Selection or Election’ but for now the Deputy Leader, Hon David Bai Conteh will occupy the Leadership position until they meet as a Party to decide otherwise. The C4C National Chairman, Tamba Sandy, said after receiving the letter on the 4th January 2020 they acknowledged receipt of the said letter on the 6th January 2020. Six among the eight C4C MPs including their leader Honourable Saa Emerson Lamina, Hon Komba Mansamayao Kamanda, Hon Shek David Aiah Kassegbama, Hon Francis Saa Bhendu, Hon Sahr Charles and Hon Paul Saa Sam were present while Hon Rebecca Yei Kamara and Hon Musa Fofanah were said to be engaged in their Constituencies.
