The declaration of Mr. Moseray Fadika for the flag bearer of the All Peoples Congress Party (APC) has created a plethora of support from all sectors in society with young people voicing their support for him.
The pioneer of many successful ventures in the country, among them the All Walks of Life non-governmental organization (AWOL), Mr. Moseray Fadika, according to Youths in the APC party, is one of the people whose declaration for the flag bearer of the APC is God sent.
“We have been waiting for this day to come to reality and indeed the man who cares for his people has made his pronouncement,” said Osman Munu, a supporter of the APC party.
Mr. Fadika’s leadership qualities and love for his country and people has already been demonstrated by the positive contribution of AWOL to the socio-economic development of the country and according to Andrew Alie, a resident of Regent, Fadika saved so many lives from poverty and unemployment.
“He doesn’t have to talk much to convince us. We know what he is and we are waiting for his call,” Alie said.
AWOL was borne out of an idea to bring together young Sierra Leoneans in the spirit of friendship, development, love for the country and philanthropy.
In 2001, AWOL was formally launched at the British Council Hall by former President Dr. Ahmad TejanKabbah.
In the past years AWOL has had significant achievements as has already been demonstrated with the donation of an x-ray machine worth US$80,000 to the Connaught hospital which was desperately needed at the time as well as numerous educational scholarships to young Sierra Leoneans in need.
Over the weekend, Fadika was received by thousands of supporters from Bompeh Junction and escorted amidst dancing and singing to the Koidu Community Center field.
According to Alie, Fadika’s message was inspirational and honest.
“He advised the people to remain united against all odds,” he reiterated.
Based on his contribution to national development and service to his people, President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma extolled the achievements of Mr. Fadika during an awards ceremony at the State House.
“Let me congratulate Mr. Fadika for making all of us Sierra Leoneans proud. We believe that in a moment like this when somebody comes back home with laurels, somebody comes back after having achieved internationally; the achievement is not limited to him alone. It is an achievement for every Sierra Leonean.
“When a citizen achieves national status in his/her endevours, it is not about that person anymore. It is now about Sierra Leone. It is now about our support to ensure that he sustains the kind of momentum that he has shown that has given him this recognition,” president Koroma said.
Mohamed Andrew Koroma, a business in Freetown, said Fadika is an embodiment of the common Sierra Leonean and that he cares for the people.
“Personally I have not met him in person but his story tells of someone with a humble nature, kind and caring. What he has so far done for this country is great and thousands of young Sierra Leoneans will stand by him.
Koroma said he is not supporting the APC but that the pronouncement of Fadika has made him to reconsider his decision.
