It is no secret that the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) has numerous fans and supporters that are daily using social media to propagate the ideals of the SLPP.
It is a fact that hundreds even thousands of these SLPP supporters and members are youths who are making very serious efforts through social media to sell the SLPP wide and abroad.
However, it is unfortunate that despite their effort there is not much being done by the party stalwarts and the party itself to capacitate these people that are spreading the popularity and ideals of the SLPP. But at the same time there are a few party stalwarts including President Julius Maada Bio that are trying in their own little ways to capacitate these social media users selling the good image of the SLPP.
It is no gainsaying the fact that these days no one can ignore the importance and reach that social media has. News these days travel faster via social media than any other media outlet. This is why it is very important for the SLPP to see the importance and necessity to capacitate those of its unemployed members that are very versatile on social media selling the image of the SLPP Government and its New Direction vision.
