Senior national executive members of the C4C (Coalition for Change Party) yesterday refused to merge their party with the main opposition APC party during a secret meeting in Makeni.

The party’s founder and defeated Presidential candidate, Alhaji Chief Samuel Sam Sumana yesterday led a high-power delegation to see the former President who doubles as Chairman/Leader of the APC party, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma in Makeni, in order for him and his party executive to sign “a cooperation agreement” with the APC party.

Reports state that some senior executive members of the C4C refused to sign any agreement with the APC party because “there is no consensus” in the party for such an agreement.

A senior C4C executive member told the Global Times last night in Koidu City that their former defeated Presidential candidate in the 2018 election “is slowly gravitating towards the APC party…We suspect that he wants to return to the APC party possibly to play a leading role in that party…We will not go with him to the APC party…If he wants to go, let him go alone…We are not prepared to follow him to the APC party that disgraced him in 2015”.

There is growing speculation that the former Vice President, Chief Alhaji Samuel Sam Sumana intends to openly declare for the main opposition APC party.

A spokesman for the APC party told the Global Times last night that the party “is not averse to the idea of VP Sam Sumana returning to his family party”.

Investigations continue.
