They said it is shameful for Fatima to attack the personalities of respectable a Sierra Leonean, naming such a personality a rapist, adding that to have even questioned the academic credentials of President Koroma and Dr. Samura Kamara is another recklessness on the part of Bio. The APC went on to say it is a shame that the Grand Old Party has been stolen by a person like Fatima Bio.
