By Jarrah Kawusu-Konte :

In an effort to making inroads in the infrastructural sector of the country, President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma over the weekend handed over the site for the construction of the Mange-Mambolo and Bamoi Luma-Rokupr road project to the contractor China Railway Seventh Group (CRSG) at the Mambolo Town field, Kambia district. President Koroma said that a lot of efforts were made in the implementation of the Agenda for Change, particularly in the areas of education, energy, health, infrastructure and agriculture, adding that several road projects started in other parts of the country.   PREZZZZZZZOMAMBOLO1 (600 x 399)   Addressing the gains in the road sector, the President maintained that the country is virtually becoming very small, noting that the ring road project will cover and open up the country and will help out in further promoting agricultural activities, grow business and fast track Sierra Leone’s quest to achieve middle income status.   The Chief Executive reminded the people of Kambia about the state of governance in 2007 and promised to continue to transform the country. He noted that despite the fact that there were still challenges, government has done extremely well with the limited resources available, and challenged any individual to dispute the fact that more development has taken place under his astute leadership more than any other government in the history of Sierra Leone in the areas of good governance, building infrastructure, and attracting direct foreign investments. PREZZZZZZZOMAMBOLO2 (600 x 399) President Koroma also argued that government under his leadership is the first in the history of Sierra Leone to dip into the coffers to unleash development all across the country. On the recent report on the health sector, the President said most Sierra Leoneans tend to forget and ignore all the progress and benefits that are already being achieved in the sector, especially the decline in the figures for maternal and child mortality. He urged the public to stop being unpatriotic and appreciate the fact that a lot has happened since 2007.   President Koroma further pledged to address the issue of seed rice to enhance the agricultural activities of the different communities. In a related development, the Chairman and Leader of the APC also officially opened the newly constructed APC office for Constituency 42 in Mambolo Chiefdom.   The President, cheered by locals, saw in attendance government officials, party hierarchy, stalwarts and members of the opposition. Describing the occasion as important, President Koroma said that as his government is making inroads in developing the country’s infrastructure, it will be done in consonance with developing the party’s infrastructure as well. “As a government, we feel very proud that today we are commissioning the construction of these projects which belong to the portfolio of programmes that we have,” he said.   While addressing party faithfuls, President Koroma said that it is a great moment for the government because it gave them the opportunity to go back and say thanks to the people of Kambia for voting them into governance and also to tell them that they have started delivering on the promises they made and further pledged their commitment to move on with the Agenda for Prosperity. Meanwhile, enroute to Mambolo, President Koroma made a stopover at the Bankasoka mini-hydro project in Port Loko where the Project Manager Xue Lichun assured him that the dam with a capacity of 2 mega watts will be completed mid next year.   Also in Port Loko, the President held a town hall meeting with the community at the Port Loko District Council where he commended them for the unity that now prevails amongst the people of Port Loko, and reiterated his commitment and determination to continue with the ongoing development of the district.
