Pujehun District-12th May, 2022- The attention of Hon. Dickson Momoh Rogers, Chief Whip and Honorable Member of Parliament, has been drawn to a certain fabricated and misleading social media publication written by someone who identified himself as Mohamed M. Sesay (Lucky) purporting that he, Chief Whip and Honorable Member of Parliament Dickson Momoh Rogers, has been accused of meddling into the just concluded Midterm Population and Housing Census in Galliness and Perri Chiefdoms in Pujehun District.
The author who claimed to be working for *‘the Courier’* said he heard a rumor from the people of Galliness who said that the honorable member, being a direct supervisor of Statistics Sierra Leone in the Sierra Leone House of Parliament, is using his status and influence to de-amalgamate constituency 100 comprising Galliness and Perri chiefdoms.
The public is hereby informed that Hon. Dickson Momoh Rogers, being a distinguished and forthright man that he is, is not associated with such actions and has no such intentions.
“Such news is not only flawed but a gimmick aimed at orchestrating discord among the peaceful and loving inhabitants of Galiness and Perri chiefdoms by attention seekers for their hidden motives. I have no point in time neither meddled nor attempted to manipulate Statistics Sierra Leone to undermine the generation of credible data for national development.” Hon. Dickson M. Rogers asserted.
Hon. Dickson Momoh Rogers therefore seizes this moment to entreat the people of Galiness and Perri chiefdoms to discountenance that particular social media article and related news
It is my fervent hope that we come to the realization that falsity; misinformation and unwarranted postulations should have no place in the practice of professional journalism thus acting on hearsay or rumor is VERY UNPROFESSIONAL-Mr. Sesay alias Lucky.
