Erudite analyst and astute political scientist, Mr. Abdulai Baraytay, who also doubles as Presidential Spokesman for the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, His Excellency, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, has called on the Presidential Flagbearer of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party, Mr. Julius Maada Bio, to set the record straight, following an allegation of 18 Million Dollars being  swindled by Mr. Bio from State Account, during his reign as Head of State in 1996. Bio, who has come under very serious criticisms by potential voters, political commentators and members of the international community among others, was embarrassed at the Bintumani Conference Hall in Freetown, on Friday 15th February, 2018, where Dr. Samura Matthew Wilson Kamara, the APC Presidential Hopeful, let the cat out of the bag. However, Bio could not withstand the blush on his face, thus responded in the affirmative, with a clandestine attempt to rope Dr. Samura in. Furthermore, following Baraytay's recent acidic exposure of Bio, during a radio talk show on radio Democracy FM 98.1 on Friday 16th February, 2018 has urged numerous bloggers and social media users to join the line in calling on Bio, to account for the 18 Million Dollar fiasco hanging over his credibility ahead of the March 7th, 2018 polls.
