The Supreme Court of Sierra Leone yesterday Tuesday April 20, 2021, struck out the petition on the objection of President Julius Maada Bio and the governing Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) filed by Dr. Sylvia Blyden and Co. against the April 2018 Election of President Bio.

It can be recalled that some three years ago, on April 9th 2018, Dr. Blyden and some senior All People’s Congress (APC) members filed a petition against the election of President Bio into the presidency.

A Notice of Hearing was served to the respective parties and yesterday it was made clear that the petition does not meet the merits and has been thrown out of the Supreme Court on technical points as requested by President Bio and the SLPP.

The Hon. Chief Justice himself presided yesterday to deliver the Judgement and the proceedings.
