A new group of members belonging to the ruling All peoples Congress (APC) party, have come together to form an organisation called “APC 4 life” which will be launched in March 2017, at the Brima Attouga Stadium, eastern Freetown.

President of the newly established organisation, Ibrahim Bundu, in an interview with Concord Times, said the organisation was a combination of youth and business people, who formed the greater majority of the APC grassroots.

“The initiative came as a result of our visit to Sanda in the Port Loko district in 2015 to canvass support for the APC party. Most of the supporters at that time were not happy with the snail-pace of development in their town. We encouraged them to come out and register so as to enable them vote in the coming 2018 general elections in the country,” he recalled.

“Some of the people we spoke to were aggrieved and that they wanted to join other political parties. We held a meeting and told them that we were forming an organisation that should encourage people to stay in the APC party,” he said, adding that some of the people relied on the information they received from the opposition parties, which, he said were sometimes ‘not correct.’

He further said that they wanted to use their  newly established organisation to sensitise their members on the development strides of President Ernest Koroma and also  stress on the importance of the national registration about to take place soonest.

He disclosed that they have members in the North/Western region and some districts in the Southern regions of the country.

Asked about their source of revenue to run the affairs of the organisation, he said that they have been getting financial and moral support from the APC Members of Parliament (MPs), Ministers, and other well-wishers including 27 zonal executives.
