His triumphant entry into Lunsar Town in the Marampa Chiefdom, Port Loko District, Hon. Chernor R.M. Bah received an extraordinary welcome by hundreds of All People’s Congress (APC) party supporters on Thursday 15th February 2018.
The Party’s Presidential Running Mate visited Lunsar and Masiaka Town not only to get a reassured commitment from supporters to vote in the party in the March 7, 2018, elections; but to also affirm that the only hope of development in Sierra Leone is by voting in the party. Hon. Chericoco, as he is fondly called, informed his audience that the coming elections are about the future of young people and women, especially first-time voters. “Come March 7, 2018, all of us should march forward ‘Tolongbo,” he said, and added that Port Loko District should not let the party down because; as he put it “Port Loko is the home of Tolongbo”.
Dr. Samura Kamara’s government, he said, will deliver more than what President Koroma’s government has done.
Hom. Chericoco pointed out that the young people, especially first-time voters should be proud enough to celebrate the development projects done by the APC in their communities.
He implored them to stay away from violence and embrace peace. “We will only enjoy development in a peaceful environmer4nt,” he noted, and further urged that supporters should continue with their house to house campaign.
“APC is for the grassroots. We’ll continue with our development projects so as to further transform the lives of the people,” he said.
Paramount Chief Bai Koblo Queen of Marampa Chiefdom, described Hon. Chericoco’s visit to his Chiefdom as a historic, and commended President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma for a job well done in the country.
“We are grateful to the APC for the development projects implemented over the years ion my chiefdom,” the PC Said and went further to name good roads, safe drinking water, electricity, job opportunities as key amongst the development activities which the APC took to his chiefdom.
The APC Regional Chairman in the North-West, Hon. Buya Kamara (Port Loko, Kambia and Kerena Districts), said the party is assured of all Parliamentary and Local Council seats in his area of command. “We believe in action and we strongly hope that the APC will win the coming elections,” he assured.
Abdul Karim Koroma, APC’s Parliamentary Candidate for Constituency 070 said he has succeeded in having greater support in his constituency due to his humility and honesty. “I am currently enjoying the support of my colleagues who were not awarded the party symbol,” AKK said.
Speaker after speaker appreciated the good works of the party and assured that the APC will surely clinch over 90% votes in Port Loko District.
