It has emerged that the current Finance Minister Momodu Katgbo has of late vested interest in the flagbearer race of the ruling APC party.
This, they say, has seen some APC members be at a complete loss as to whether those who earlier have had endless time campaigning party stalwarts support their bid leadership in the party sail through come the 14th and 14th this month.
Momodu Kargbo has been an APC party member upon his return from the United States of America in 1979.
He is reportedly in the middle of few persons as brains of the party.
The records in the APC have it that Momodu is amongst the small number of individuals to have pioneered peace between Edie Turay, Serry Kamal and Ernest Bai Koroma factions, that which incidentally ushered in the victory the party now enjoys.
Findings also state that Momodu, Tom Obaleh, Konton Sesay and Sam Sesay are the brains of the party, and were persons who put ideas together in the writing of both the 2007 and 2012 manifestos of the APC.
From among the chain of command of the APC, Momodu is described as a unique disciplinarian owing to his stance on prudent public financial management issues.
Sources say however that because of his strong economic principles in public financial management, his colleague ministers including number of public officials do hold the opinion that he is but a grumpy statesman.
Others say, however, that if not for the efforts Momodu as country’s finance minister, the now salvaged economy of Sierra Leone would have collapsed long before now. New Age’s source maintained that Momodu decided to make his intention now because he respects the President’s mandate that ‘ministers should work for the good of Sierra Leone and not focus on politics until when it is ripe for that.
“Minister Momodu knows and believes in the APC,” our source said.
