“The National Grand Coalition (NGC) wishes to inform its members and supporters that the National Electoral Commission (NEC) office in Kambia District, has rejected the objection filed against Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella by Mr. Abu Bakarr Sankoh and upheld the provisional nomination of Dr Yumkella as a candidate for constituency 62 parliamentary elections.

 

“In his decision, District Returning Officer Umaru Fomba noted that “Having looked at the objection before me and with reference to both sections 76 (1a) and 63 (Act No.4) of the 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone  and the Public Elections Act of 2012 respectively, I have considered the explanations submitted in support of the objection and I have concluded that the evidence is insufficient to reverse the provisional nomination of Yumkella Kandeh Kolleh.”*
 
“The NGC had all along been convinced that the objection was frivolous and without merit and an attempt to deprive the electorate of their right to choose a candidate of their choice.

 

“We also believe that the objection was simply meant to divert attention and prevent the public from focusing on the terrible record of the APC government.

 

“We therefore urge all our members and supporters to continue to work towards an NGC victory in the March 2018 elections.”
