After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

Don’t see it having any impact.

Now if Baba were to encourage some Naija tycoons to discreetly fund the campaign, then I can see that really shaking things up.

Re - "Now if Baba were to encourage some Naija tycoons to discreetly fund the campaign..."

discreetly eh? After that, payback time... as Marley said, they will always want to control you forever...

Aren’t there any laws in Sierra Leone about receiving donations from foreign countries in order to win elections ?

About impact there’s Sweden’s IDEA

( It may interest you to know that Sweden footed the bill for some of Zimbabwe’s 1980 elections campaign, such as printing some of the posters etc and of course, of course was of inestimable help in supporting anti Apartheid movements on many fronts , in and outside of South Africa

Corn, I guess there are laws against foreign funding. Incumbents flout those rules regularly. When dealing with an incumbent that uses state resources, the opposition has to be creative

May be it can work elsewhere like the power-hungry Torkpoi territory but for Obasanjo to have his way in Tolongbo territory is a gargantuan task. In fact Sierra Leoneans will never allow foreigners to meddle with their internal affairs anymore. Obasanjo as a spent force is very much cognizant of that and will not want to over step his limits. Endorsement my foot! That has no atom of an impact. It is just bellyful talk which they say is cheap. We will never allow foreigners to decide or chose for us! It has to be Samura or Maada or Kamaraimba period!
