As tension continues to intensify within the main opposition All People’s Congress party with the emergence of senior party members demanding an exit of the current Ernest Bai Koroma’s old guard executive, the National Reformation Movement (NRM) has declined to attend a meeting summoned by the party’s parliamentarians and councilors.
The movement being the first splinter group advocating for a reform of the national executive refused to honor the invite because according to them,the request is not in conformity with the relevant document.
In the guiding document, according to NRM official, its was resolved that all meetings should be convened through a facilitator and must be related to discussions on the party’s reaction to the said document.
The movement, he said, deliberately refused to attend the proposed meeting because it was neither summoned through the facilitator nor does it relate to discussions of the party’s reaction on the document.
Nonetheless, he said, the movement is still looking forward to the response of the party leadership to make their position known on their document submitted.
It is becoming apparent that there is a noticeable division within the National Reformation Movement with the emergence of another faction born out from the Movement that is currently run by an interim executive.
The Satellite understands that two out of the three members of the initial NRM group that sought an injunction against the party are still members of the movement, while one of the plaintiffs is reported to have quit.
The problem seems to be compounding for the current party chairman and leader as two senior party members, the former APC Gender Minister and ex National Publicity Secretary Officer 2, Hon Robin Faley are also advocating for their exit.
Close sources from the party have intimated this press that, some very senior party executive including some disgruntled former 2018 presidential candidates are working behind the scene pushing for a reform to usher in a young and energetic national executive.
