President Julius Maada Bio has urged the people of Koidu, Kono district to vote for themselves and for the development of their district.
“When you’re voting for me, you’re not voting for Maada Bio, you’re voting because of what Maada Bio has shown the people what he can do . He’s shown that he’s a man of his word. He’s shown that he cares about development,” the President said, adding that for a long time, the people of Kono have been deprived of development and good opportunities.
President Bio added that his government will prioritize the development agenda of Kono and its people during his second term in office and urged them to send their children including girls to school as he believes they are the human capital of any nation.
“Make sure your children to go to school. Today is the best time for women in this country since independence. No government has ever given opportunity to women and girls like this government . So, you the women should understand this, support the girl child to go to school that they can come back and take part in your development,’ President Bio urged.
“I’m happy for the young people from the APC that have just come over to us I’m sure that the young ones we have here haven’t been given money to attack anyone. We have a message and that is to convince you to have confidence and trust in the SLPP because we keep to our words. When we send a message it’s backed by follow-up action. They promised you a university but that is now history. In fact, we didn’t promise electricity but now that is history,”
The President promised that through his government the city of Koidu will have it’s own water system.
He further promised that Koidu city will have all the basic amenities needed in a city, adding that, government is working hard to making these reality.
President Bio praised the youths that have crossed to the ruling party as the best decision they have made and encouraged others to come over.
SLPP’s Kono District Chairman, Safea Moiwa, said many supporters of the APC, C4C, and NGC, have told him that they have plans to defect to the SLPP, a situation, he noted, that would be a boost for the party in the district.
“These people have taken this decision because of what they have seen in the last four years. Despite the global economic crisis, Kono has benefitted from the national cake that President Bio has been distributing. The stable electricity supply to Kono was a game changer. This has enhanced economic activities in Kono,” he stated.
