Dr. Yumkella also stated that the coming of Engineer Keili into NGC was a very timely move and also a sign of success for the party in the March 2018 elections.

The NGC is the brainchild of the former UN industrial development and energy expert – Dr Kandeh Yumkella, who says that his purpose for establishing the NGC is to bring together progressive liberal democrats from across the country, to contest next year’s presidential and general elections.

Engineer Andrew Keili was one of the most popular and influential leaders of the opposition SLPP, and was hoping to lead the SLPP as their presidential candidate at next year’s general elections.

But he withdrew his intention to contest the party flagbearership election, after alleging that the electoral process had been massively rigged to favour the former military Brigadier Julius Maada Bio, current Presidential Candidate of the SLPP.

Reading out his statement of resignation from the SLPP and his decision to join the NGC past week, Andrew was clear about his decision to leave the SLPP party.  “I am no longer prepared to follow a futile cause,” he said.

With Andrew Keili now a staunch member of the NGC, there is little doubt this move will help strengthen the NGC’s chances of winning next year’s elections, amid growing rumours about the likelihood of some of the former presidential candidates of the ruling APC, also planning to defect to the national coalition of progressive liberal democrats – the NGC.
