The Leader of Government Business in the Sierra Leone Parliament, Honourable Sidie Mohamed Tunis has said that he was running for the Speakership position of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament because he had got support from the Leader of the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC), Honourable Chernor Bah and the whole membership of the Sierra Leone Parliament. He made the revelation at a recent retreat in Liberia organized for MPs in the ECOWAS Parliament. “If I should be standing here with all of these endorsements, it is because of this young man,” Hon. Tunis noted, touching Hon. Bah on the shoulder – after Hon. Tunis had called the APC Leader on stage to enforce his statement. Hon. Tunis said that it was Hon. Bah who stooped down and gave him the backing to stand for the coveted Speakership position of the ECOWAS Parliament. “It is because of him that I am here. If I had not got his consent trust me, I would not have continued with my aspiration,” he reiterated.
