SUBMITTED BY SLPP TECHNICAL COMMITTEE ON 2015 CENSUS
Following the release of the provisional 2015 census report published by Statistics Sierra Leone (SSL) on March 31, 2016, the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) convened a stakeholders’ meeting on Tuesday 6th April, 2016 at the Head office, Lightfoot Boston Street in Freetown and constituted a Technical Committee to examine the report. The following members were appointed to serve in the Committee.
The Bank of Sierra Leone recently re-launched its campaign to control the ever rising influence of the United States Dollar on the Sierra Leonean economy. The move, according to the bank, is aimed at saving the Leone which is the legal tender of the country.
Bank officials say the uncontrolled use of the Dollar has contributed to the inflation of the leone. They also say this has made life difficult for the ordinary Sierra Leonean as tenants, restaurant owners and airlines, among others, demand payment in the Dollar rather than the Leone.

All recent events connected with the S.L.P.P. do not seem to be natural but only adding fuel to the smouldering embers within the party. It is a fact that party divisions for good or evil are inseparable from free governments. SLPP is no exception to that syndrome. The All Peoples Congress (APC) had more than its fair share of the symdrome months before the 2007 elections. Defections by traitors and opportunists have not helped the situation.

Last night saw the end of the group stage phase of the European championship. As some teams have progressed, some had long since gone home and others clinched their fist in hope of progression till 10pm on Wednesday night .
This tournament has been different from previous editions. For a start, it is an extended edition; with 24 teams participating now instead of the usual 16. The whole extension idea was the brainchild of the UEFA President, Michel Platini.
