Members of the All People’s Congress have shared on social media a document described as the 100 policy commitments by the APC Presidential Candidate, Dr. Samura Kamara. After initial glance of the document, we are delighted that Dr. Samura Kamara has copied one of Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio’s education policies which he launched in November to provide free education for the physically challenged. Dr. Samura Kamara has made that his 30th policy commitment.
The policy by Bio to provide free education for the physically challenged has been part of series of policies the SLPP Presidential Candidate launched to promote *Inclusive Education*. Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio strongly believes that “disability is not inability”. As such, citizens who are physically challenged should have equal access to quality education for their personal development and to contribute to nation building.
Through the recent launch of his New Direction Policy Initiatives, Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio proffered a whole raft of policies to address the critical development challenges in Sierra Leone. The New Direction Policy Document has been hugely popular among voters as it highlights the current development challenges with facts and statistics and Bio’s policy prescriptions to address these challenges. Therefore if other Presidential Candidates are copying policies from the New Direction Policy Document it is a credit to the leadership and competence of Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio.
