Peter Obi receives accolades in Sierra Leone as a good example for politicians

The chairman of the Political Parties Regulations Commission (PPRC) in Sierra Leone, Abdulai Bangura has urged politicians in the country to conduct themselves peacefully by taking a cue from Nigeria’s Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

 

This comes on the heels of the ongoing elections in the country.

 

Bangura disclosed this during a press conference addressed by the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL), the Office of National Security (ONS) and the PPRC in Freetown on Sunday.

 

The commission, PPRC and the ONS addressed the various concerns raised by stakeholders in the elections held on Saturday across the West African country as voters await the results of the polls.

 

Recall tallying of votes is ongoing across the different regions in the West African country.

 

“I have always referred to Peter Obi when he lost the election. We all know the promise he had when the elections were being conducted. Almost everybody who is anything in Nigeria (threw their) support.

 

“But when the result came out otherwise, he (Obi) did not call his supporters to the street to wreak havoc, he took the legal path and was able to save his country (Nigeria) from chaos.

 

“So, we will encourage all of our politicians to learn from that example of leadership,” the PPRC chairmen was quoted as saying.
