The Presidential Candidate for the Sierra Leone People’s Party, the Retired Brigadier Julius Maada Bio has assured voters in Kono District that under his leadership he will ensure equal distribution of the nation’s resources to every part of the country.
Bio made this statement on Sunday, 28th January 2018 while addressing voters in the Toli, Lei and Fiama Chiefdoms in Kono district. He said the reason responsible for the underdevelopment of those communities is as a result of deliberate neglect by the APC government either because of tribal or political sentiments but vowed to eradicate such practices when elected as President.
The former head of State described the SLPP as the last bastion of hope for the country that has the best mechanisms in bringing positive development to the country thereby promised to bring improvement to the district especially in creating more jobs for youth as well as improving girl child education so as to reduce the massive youth unemployment and teenage pregnancy in the district. He called on the voters to support the SLPP and his presidency for a brighter Sierra Leone.
