The professor noted with regret on the way and manner some Journalists misused the profession, without doing their assignment properly before going to press. He told the press that he has resigned as a leader of the party since in 2010 and made public his resignation at a press conference he held at the Sierra Leone News Agency (SLENA) building at Wallace Johnson Street, Freetown.

Professor  Abdul Kady Karim expressed dismay over the fact that the African Young Voices had to publish his name and photo ascribing him to still be the chairman and leader of the UNPP on their front page.

‘’I want to make it categorically clear that I was not in the country for sometime now but it is not a guarantee for a newspaper to blackmail my personality’’, said the professor.
