All from Nasralla's team.
Electoral Commissioner, Alex Kaye Bockarie, announced the results on Saturday night and he clearly confirmed that there were no malpractices and voting/electoral activities were monitored by representatives of both parties.
As we went to press, President-Elect, Alie Hassan Nasralla, has also confirmed with 40 Acres Canada that his opponent in the elections, Simeon Ganda, has contacted and congratulated him and both have agreed to work together for the benefit of the Sierra Leonean community in Manitoba, Canada.
40 Acres Canada has also been informed that the inauguration ceremony will take place pretty soon so as to put the elected members at work right away. The date and venue for the event will be announced shortly.
