Viral press statement on Kamara conceding defeat, false!

Claim: The APC leader Samura Kamara in a viral press statement, has conceded defeat to the incumbent president Julius Maada Bio. 

The statement, which is on the supposed letterhead of the APC, reads in part, “Let me use this opportunity to congratulate Julius Maada Bio of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) on winning the elections on Saturday, June 24, 2023, despite the many concerns my party, the All People’s Congress Party have about the conduct.” The viral statement had the signature of the APC National Secretary Lansana Dumbuya.

Findings

DUBAWA contacted the All People’s Congress (APC) party spokesperson, Sidi Yaya Tunis, to confirm if the statement emanated from the APC.

In a quick retort, he told DUBAWA the letter’s content is “fake.”
