Maada Bio Unites with Awareness Times Journalists

Maada Bio, Sierra Leone People's Party (SLPP) Presidential Candidate and Awareness Times Newspaper Journalists - Sylvia Blyden, Publisher, Abdul Karim Fonti Kabia, Editor, and Bampia Bundu, Reporter - have reached an amicable settlement over the long standing standoff.

The peace talks were mediated by Members of Parliameent (MPs) representing the SLPP.

Maada Bio is expected to soon put out a press statement on his stance on the issue, whilst the Awareness Times Newspaper is expected to do same.

It could be recalled that Maada Bio's supporters attacked and manhandled Bampia Bundu at the Law Courts Building in Freetown in December last year. 

Abdul Fonti, the Awareness Times Newspaper Editor had also reported that Maada Bio personally telephoned and threatened him for publishing what Maada considered as negative articles against him.

All efforts by the newspaper to get Maada Bio to publicly dissociate himself from the two incidents proved unsuccessful.

The Awareness Times had since December put up what the Publisher described as "protective jackets" until Thursday night.
The final peace talks that were held on Thursday night lasted for over four hours, but ended on a fine note.

Meanwhile, the Awareness Times Newspaper has made it clear that making peace with Maada Bio does not, and will not compromise the newspaper's objective stands.

  2. It doesn't surprise me at all to see Maada Bio going back to lick his vomit. After all, this is what he's good at to go on all fours beging people whenever he'd done wrong. I'm happy that he'd finally seen the writing on the wall and decided to act. Politicians should always remember that it's futile and unproductive to antagonize members of the Fourth Estate. I only hope it's a peace well made.

  3. Peace between Maada and Awareness times management is a step forward. This is a clear indication that Maada (President to be) is tolerant and a peace loving Sierra Leonean. History explain itself. Maada was in power then he let it go. This was a big sacrifice. It is a bit disturbing when somebody else said "Maada Bio going back to lick his vomit". In a civilize world, such writings should not be published. It is good that person never identified him/herself. Lunta

  17. Many bodybuilders make this same mistake, and take the hard road.
    Going from skinny to muscle depends on how you approach and execute your workouts as well as how you manage your nutrition and
    rest. One mistake that people who want to build muscles quickly but have no information is the lack of information regarding how much they should eat in order
    to grow muscles.
