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

SLPP on my mind by Prof. KK:
Some APC market women are said to have gone to Siaka Stevens to complain about the high cost of living in the country--especially the price of palm oil. Sheki reportedly opened his drawer and gave the head of the delegation a worn-out envelope and asked her to open it. In it was Sheki's SLPP membership card. He proceeded to remind the group that it was they (rabid APC supporters) who had been cutting down and burying palm trees, in symbolic gestures of killin...g and burying the SLPP, not even aware that palm oil comes from the palm tree and that he (Sheki) never resigned from the SLPP. (He merely took leave of absence). He told the delegation that he and Jamil had started an oil palm plantation in Daru and that they should wait for it to mature so that the price of palm oil will go down.

NB: I told this story to a granddaughter of Alhaji M.S. Mustapha and she told me that Sheki one day shocked her grandfather by asking him for his SLPP membership card. When Pa Mustapha could not even remember where his was, Sheki produced his and told a bemused Pa Mustapha that he (Sheki) was more SLPP than Pa Mustapha.

Moral of the story: All those who left SLPP for any reason are welcome back into the fold.
