The claim according to the party is misleading, and a well calculated move to misinform the general public about the circumstances surrounding the MOU with the Sierra Leone Police (SLP).

“As one of the registered political parties in Sierra Leone, the SLPP has not agreed with anyone to restrict the movement of Sierra Leoneans. We consider any restriction of the movement of Sierra Leoneans as a fundamental breach of the right to and freedom of movement” the SLPP National Secretary General, Umaru Napoleon Koroma told AYV over the weekend.

As a political party, the SLPP has informed all concerned stakeholders that it cannot sign a MOU that seeks to breach the fundamental right of citizens; particularly when the Sierra Leone Police have no legal basis to unilaterally restrict the movement of peaceful citizens of our country. In this regard, the SLPP wished to inform all its members, supporters and other Sierra Leoneans that it is not a party to the Police MOU and therefore not bound by it.

The SLPP has called on all its members, supporters and other Sierra Leoneans to come out on 7th March 2018 to vote peacefully and go about their normal business.

SLPP members, supporters and other Sierra Leoneans are advised to keep within the line of restriction drawn in respect of the polling centers to enable the Police to provide security for the centers.

Finally, the SLPP has called on the Inspector General of Police to withdraw the misleading public statement dated February 2018.
